I don't think you should look like you're just dressed nicely, but you should look like a bride. Marriage is not something that happens everyday, so make your look very bridal.

Of the dresses you chose, I like https://www.jjshouse.com/A-Line-Prin...8056884-g56884 in ivory.

I like the following shoes for that dress:
Menbur 'Ana' Bridal Sandal (Women) | Nordstrom

I'd look at J.Crew, Ann Taylor, or maybe even Land's End might have something.
I would like to look a little like a bride and not just dressed up.

Pick color that goes with your skin tone & brings out your eyes. I liked the blush pink.

Also you might want another dress to wear on the trip & could pick somethimg more casual but still more dressed up than usual.

I like the sheath also. I think the blush pink is pretty. I'll need to try some dresses on and have someone give me opinions on colors.

Yes I would like to be more of a bride than just dressed up. Love the shoes but they are too high for me

Might be a good idea to rethink 'SATIN'. When sitting, it gets really deep wrinkle lines and that ruins the look.

Also, looked on Pinterest and saw the most amazing bridal dresses (all lengths). Try this:

Fun looking!

Don't hold off going to places like David's bridal. They have more than bride and bridesmaid fancy dresses. Look for something looser in the hips but not so loose that the helicopter blows up your skirt.

I like Nordstrom for dresses. They have bridal but those are pretty much all gowns. You can also check out the regular dresses - a lot are way too casual, but some could work.

Dresses: Cocktail & Maxi Dresses | Nordstrom (I did a sort for white and knee or midi length, but you could re-do the filters for whatever you want)

I love this one

Ellen Tracy Windowpane Organza Fit & Flare Dress (Regular & Petite) | Nordstrom

Actually, having a bit of trouble getting in and out of the helicopter may be worth it, versus not worrying about the helicopter wash flinging your skirt up over your head going to & from the chopper. I'd go for the sheath or column dresses, myself.

I'm a fan of Dillards. I've also seen some really nice dresses at Macy's.
