i like the second contender for the mid calf length but actually really prefer the very first one you posted, provided it could be shortened.

I'm still in love with the first one.
It totally suits the mood of the wedding you're going for.
I understand why you might be nervous about the Etsy one, but I feel sorry for the poor seller, just because English isn't her first language!!!

Really love both the dresses you have picked RR - gorgeous and very similar vibe to what I picked for my dress (though mine was long and actually old and therefore incredibly delicate, so I had to change for the dancing around in the field/camping bit)

From my memory of what you look like (from a meet quite a few years ago admitedly!) I think they would both suit you so well. How exciting!

It's more the fact that there are no reviews at all Pics... The English on the other website isn't all that hot either! Argh. I don't know what to do! I like them both. I think I still like the first one, I keep coming back to it, but in a tea length.

The second one is just that little bit more formal. Mind you, the fact that I'm covered in tattoos means that nothing will look too formal no matter how hard I try! ;)

I look shit in white and cool colours or pastels (I'm red headed with freckles and really only suit strong colours or warm colours. I wear almost exclusively black or grey so even ivory/champagne is a departure for me - white would be a step too far!!

(not that it is very important - but i didn;t like the neckline on that one i linked to either - just the bit round the waist. thought you could have asked them to mix and match details from different dresses...)

If it's too weird, you can always borrow my dress! It was from monsoon, it's ivoryish/neutral/brownie colours, kinda long and a bit slinky with a sort of leafy pattern on it and a draped neckline. It would fit you. I'll try to find a pic of it somewhere.

<drumroll please...>

Went and bought myself a dress today...

http://www.houseoffraser.co.uk/on/deman ... top_mobile

Love it on, really pretty, understated, comfortable, feminine.

And I think I am going to get these shoes...

Thoughts?!
