Wedding Dress Stress

I feel like we’ve been planning to get married FOREVER! 
*You can read all about it here*
But now it’s actually approaching the dress stress is mounting and all of the options I’ve collected over the past 18 months all seem unsuitable. I need help! These are the six dresses I have.. do we have a winner or do I need to cross my fingers for a fab find in the January sales?

You can find all the dress/shoe info in my post here
I’m getting excited now as in a few weeks we will be able to give our notice to marry so we can do it whenever.. Once I have the dress locked down it will be on to my hair and makeup which will hopefully be much less frustrating.
Any suggestions are welcome (in fact they’re encouraged)

    Yikes – wedding stress is never good. You should take some time to yourself. Maybe visit the spa?

    Love those romantic outfits. You are certainly wedding ready :O)

    i personally like the one on the top left and the middle bottom, mainly because their flowy and elegant. If your still unsure you should try dorothy perkins they have some great dresses in atm that would suit a wedding and with 20% off full price online atm you cant get any better!

    Good luck 🙂

    i love the top right , bottom left and bottom right :)i think you look most confident in the bottom right in the pics 🙂
    all look lovely though cant wait to see which you choose xx

    I love the bottom row the one on the right and on the left both of those look incredible one is more floaty than the other but i love the detail and lace on the left one and both are what I imagine to be wedding dressy 🙂

    all look beautiful 🙂 but those are just my favourites

    I think the top left or the middle right are the nicest for a wedding 🙂 They're still flowy and elegant enough to look like a wedding dress whilst at the same time being very different from the traditional wedding dress 🙂

    My fave 2 are top middle, from one of your vlog videos right? and bottom right. Iam sure you will look totally gorgeous whatever you wear. 🙂 xx

    Either the one in the top row to the right or the one in the bottom row to the left!!

    While you look great in all of them here is my opinion. Starting top left 1. Nice, maybe with a sash or or something with a little color around the waist. 2. Is lovely but a little prom-y for a wedding. 3. Great if you are working at the office- not so much wedding. Bottom row- 1. While gorgeous on you, too sexy for a wedding. A bit too over the top. 2. Is “nice” certainly does not look bad, but doesn't really do much for you. 3. Prolly my fave. Very romantic. It all really depends on the feel you want for your wedding. You will be beautiful no matter which you choose! XX

    I love the first and last. They both have a soft and floaty quality that looks beautiful on a bride! 🙂

  12. 16 December, 2011 / 7:57 am

    I like the bottom left and bottom right there both fab and i especially like the pink shoes! Good luck whether you pick one of these or buy a new 1 i'm sure it will perfect whatever! 🙂

    Five is the most appropriate to get married in and number One's very pretty too. The others are lovely dresses but probably too tight or short for your big day!

  14. 16 December, 2011 / 11:39 am

    They all look lovely…. where r you getting married again??

    Have u tried ebay for short wedding dresses…

    Are you keeping them all? I just wonder if you could take some back/return them, you could then afford a 'proper' wedding dress, iykwim?

    For me (and I hate it when people say this but I do genuinely mean it!!) no offence, but most of them dont quite hit the mark.. The first one would be spot on if it were a maxi dress. The 2nd, I dislike the band, if it were lighter then maybe.. The 3rd, again I dislike the black and it just looks like a plain top with skirt. The 4th is nice, but maybe too tight and I can't work out whats going on underneath, that crew neck with v neck thing? The 5th does nothing for you and the 6th would probably have to be my favourite, is it white or cream? I think if you want a short wedding dress then the sleeves balance it out nicely 🙂 Is it see-through!? Im sure I can see your belly button! lol

    Def check Ebay though, some nice ones on there, bit of a risk when you cant see them in person, but you can always return/resell xx

    I think the second one is nice! There is a beautiful dress on the house of fraser website -Biba Lily sheer and beaded knee length wedding dress – not cheap though. Or Halston Heritage
    One-Shoulder Ruched Dress on saksfifthavenue website.
    Hope you find the perfect one!
    Love, Ashlie x

    I loved Second row from left first one, it is looking amazing on you and in that dress you look like bride.

    i love the 6th one, its more bridal then the others and it looks very romantic. If none of these are hitting the mark anymore try monsoon they have sales on in there bridal wear. hope you find the dress
    louise xx

    I like the 2nd and 4th. The 2nd is fun and different, and the 4th is somehow retro and still modern at the same time. Very chic!

    I do love the one you posted on your wedding blog too though!

    maybe something longer, they seem clubbing appropriate not for a wedding.

  23. 16 December, 2011 / 8:44 pm

    I would have to say bottom left and right. The red shoes look fab!!

  24. 16 December, 2011 / 9:58 pm

    Hy! my favorite one is with the red shoes! but it would be nicely that this dres haw a litle bit bigger decollete 😉

    wow! so many comments… in answer to the questions, we're getting married either at doncaster or sheffield register office.. not sure yet and it will be in january most likely. I also think all of these dresses are too short and am not 100% happy with any of them. Some I already had and some were bought as options for our vegas wedding but it's so much harder to find a high street wedding dress now we're doing it in the uk. I am not quite ready to give up my vegas dreams which is prob why I am clinging on to these dresses which aren't really register office appropriate. I have, however, found this online which I LOVE and seems like just what I've been looking for!

    I like the one in the link – feminine, classy, pretty, better length – better than any of the above 🙂

  27. 17 December, 2011 / 1:36 pm

    Bottom left, for sure it looks amazing on you xx

    The dress on in your link is the one!!! The others are way too short, and I think not appropiate for a wedding just as you said!!
    Go for the Asos one!!!

    I like the first one on the left in the second row. Your figure looks amazing in it! xx
