I found this pic on the net, and I don't know who makes it. If you do, please let me know:)

Belsoie-This is the one I have really been leaning towards. It's a deep, rich espresso color, and I would order it in an iridescent chiffon which would keep it from being so drab. My MOH actually picked this out while we were dress shopping. I like it because it has straps, empire waist, and it's really pretty in person.
The more I've looked at dresses in person, I don't want to do taffeta. The problem with brown and taffeta is that if it's not the correct shade, you end up looking like a shiny, 1980s wanna be prom queen. And, I find because of brown, that satin is just kinda blah. I'm really leaning towards chiffon. It will pick up light if it's the right shade, but it's still subtle.
Just so you know, my wedding theme is old southern. My dress is very antique, vintage looking (think Victorian possibly) and the boys are going to be in tuxedos. Our wedding is taking place at my church which is an old, Catholic church with huge windows, gothic ceilings, tall columns, statues, etc. Then, our reception is taking place at an old mansion. So with that being said, I don't want dresses that are too trendy which is a big reason why I don't want to do the one shoulder, and I'm trying to stay away from strapless.
Our big day is a night wedding. Ceremony will probably start around 6:30 (full mass-don't hate me!) which will push the reception starting at 8ish. I'm thinking we should do long dresses. Thoughts?? Also, these are just ideas of dresses. Do you have any suggestions or a favorite from this post? I'd love to hear your thoughts:)
