Andrea's dresses

My darling cousin Andrea is getting married in Oct. so she has been shopping around for wedding dresses and she so kindly invited me and some of the other female family members to go with her. What a blast we have had shopping with her! I took pictures of her in the three favorites and since there is no way of Ang to see them as she makes her decisions I decided to post them on my blog so that she could have access to them. So JORDAN (the groom) if you are reading this STOP NOW!!!!
Let me just say that the pictures really don't do any of these dresses just have to see them in person to fully appreciate them!

Dress #1
This dress is so elegant! Andrea was EXTREMELY uncomfortable in it at first because it is pretty immodest. But the gal helping us brought out some things that they would add to the dress to make it 'temple appropriate', then Ang was MUCH happier. A view from behind...this didn't have the added material in it to raise the back up. I wish that we had fluffed out the train before taking kind of looks sloppy. Oh well, it was beautiful!
This is what the dress looks like without the alterations. So they would add sleeves to it and raise the neckline.
I think that she really likes this dress, but she is nervous about buying it, making the alterations and then not having it turn out the way she was hoping and being stuck with a dress that she was not in love with.
You can't tell, but this dress was stunning on her figure.
We LOVED the back 'bum' area. :-)
With the veil on.
This dress just took our breath away when she walked out. Again, the pics don't do it justice. It was so unique, not a style that I have ever seen before.
The back
I just loved the train on this one.You could tell that she felt just like a princess in it.

She has a pretty tough decision in front of her. Whatever dress she chooses though, I know she will look just beautiful in it!

Oh my gosh are you back??? Ha Ha.....yay for another post! So seriously how hard is this....I love them all. They are def unique and amazing in there own little way. I think that the first one will look too diff with the alterations, so my pick is either the 2nd or 3rd.....too hard to say. They both are very flattering. Good luck, let me know! :)

Ok. my vote is numero uno or tres. I love all three, but i love the back of number 3, but totally love the look of number 1. You are right, she has a tough decsion to make, but whatever she picks she is going to be beautiful!

I hate trying to guess from photos because I would choose dress #1 but your tone is much more positive about the other two whether you could tell that or not. AND- I rented my dress which required alterations that did NOT turn out, so that is a valid concern.

How exciting! Both a new post from you and the anticipation of a wedding.
