    I went to my first bridal shop yesterday and tried on different styles and to my shock i liked something i thought wouldnt suit my shape. Im now stuck as i like two styles of dresses and cant seem to pick one style over another! I felt great in both styles so that doesnt help me! Need opinions of what looks better on from these pictures. I love how the fitted ones pull me in yet i felt like a princess in the other! Confused!!!

    WOW Leanne, they all look great.

    How many dresses did you try on?
    Do you plan to go to other shops too?

    Looking forward to becoming the 3rd and last Mrs McLauchlan

    Dress 1 is beautiful,it's a style I would go for personally, although I understand the reason you like the other 2, you need to ask yourself what did you feel more like a bride in? Which one could you see yourself in for your wedding day? And do a sit down test if you can move dance etc and still feel comfortable etc... I'm sure whichever you choose you will look beautiful :) xx

    Like Toni said it'll be what makes you feel more like a bride. I tried on a fishtail lace number which was absolutely stunning and I felt a million dollars in it but I also felt more like I should be on the red carpet at a film premiere rather than as a bride, it was my gorgeous princess dress that made me feel like a bride x

    Thanks all. I will be going along to other shops as i didnt get a wow feeling from the dresses i picked from this bridal shop. There were elements of each dress i loved but know i know what styles i can focus on finding one. I did feel like a bride in the first one and would be more practical! Sitting and dancing for instance as it was quite floaty on the bottom. The fitted ones i like but they are quite plain i want some sort of detailing to the back. God knows how id sit or go to the loo if its that tight lol!

    I think dress 1 is stunning, but then it's the kind of thing I'd go for. Out of 2 and 3, I preferred 3 on you!

    They're all lovely but especially number 1 and 3. Maybe try some other ones in a similar style.

    I didn't get 'the' feeling in mine but I still love it

    Dress 1 is stunning. I also never thought I would like fitted but tried a couple and was pleasantly surprised. Only thing I'd say is do the photo test. In the shop mirror they looked great on me but in the photos I could see the bits of me I'd rather hide. Particularly my belly. Dress 2 highlights that area whereas dress 3 totally flatters and looks beautiful on you. Hope you find the one ;)

    Laura - Im glad my sister took pictures as there was one i loved but i didnt see the price before i tried it on and it was way over budget!! Looked back at the pictures and it looks awful on me! Yet in person i loved it! 1 and 3 are also my favourites :-) xx

    Ooooooh hard decision..... Stunning all 3 are but I think I prefer number 1 but that's cos my dress is similar (biased).

    Good luck with your decision xx

    I love dress 1 on you but also dress 3, I think the straighter bottom rather than ruffled looks better on you.

    Personally I would go for number 1, but I'm not such a fan of the more fitted styles, so there is an element of personal taste in there. You look great in all of them.

    I personally think the fitted options look lovely on you, but I am biased as I prefer the fitted style anyway. It shows off your figure perfectly.

    I think the fitted one on you looks amazing. Entirely up to you though. You need to feel like a bride and be 100% comfortable on the day. Try a few more of both on and ask the shop if you can leave them on for a while to see how you feel in them. try sitting etc.

    Yes stephanie it is that designer. Each time i look back at the photos im loving it! I dont think my guests would even expect me in a fitted number as im a curvy girl. I think i may go back and try it on again with my mum there as she was unable to come.

    That's exactly how I feel about mine Leanne. I think most people would expect me to wear a princess type dress, so I hope a lot of people are surprised when they see my dress is a fitted dress :-) it does flatter your curves beautifully. If you've got it - flaunt it!!! Dress 1 is absolutely gorgeous but I feel your figure gets lost in it xx

    That was my thoughts, the same as Flossie. How ever beautiful dress 1 is your figure stands out and looks so amazing in dress 3.

    I tried dresses on at the weekend and had the exact same problem! Please tell me what you decide and how! The princess dress is not what I would pick in the slightest bit I absolutely loved it and can't get it out of my head yet the fitted dress is what I am looking for and would continue to look for if I didn't stop now and buy the princess one! Confused!

    Ive picked one!!! I had that feeling when i tried it on and didnt want to take it off!!! Its fitted too... My mum came to this appointment and i asked her and my sisters to pick a dress each for me to try. I also picked one... My mums choice was amazing!!! You cant see the detail on the pics but i wanted pearls on my dress with little 'bling' as we are having a vintage theme. Here it is... I was unable to take pics as i was so chuffed and forgot as i felt amazing!
