I tried on two dresses, the first I liked but it was a very low V neck in the front and I felt like I might be self conscious all night worrying about it popping open (not that I have much to show). The second dress which is the one I decided on was very comfortable and flattering. I could also shorten it after the wedding and wear it often. It's easy to dress up or down. I think all of the dress and the colors we chose correspond nicely.
Here is my dress. I actually think it looks much nicer in person.
It's by Joanna August.
This is not the color I will be wearing.
There is actually quite a high slit in the skirt but it's hidden beneath the top layer of chiffon, so that's kinda fun.
Here's the back.
I will be wearing the dress in a color called Landslide. Since I'm pretty pale and probably won't have much of a tan in time for the early June wedding we decided wearing a slightly darker color would look better and be more of a contrast.
The maid of honor who is darker skin will be wearing a lighter champagne/cream color dress and the other two bridesmaids are wearing slightly different shades of light blush.
Everyone had a pretty easy time picking out a dress they liked and fortunately there were no arguments over wanting the same dress.
