No weird comments for me (I’ve got an awesome support team I guess) but I just have to say Monique L’Huillier is ANYTHING but Cute! I think that gown is absolutely stunning. And, I’m going to go out on a limb from seeing other posts, a lot of ladies here will agree with me and be sweetly jealous about your dress.  I know a lot of lace dresses look the same and I love that your’s has such unique touches to it!

LOVE IT

 

Also, Welcome to Weddingbee 🙂

love the dress. it’s gorgeous, but preppy at the same time (maybe that’s what they mean by cute?) my sister said my wedding gown looked like a bath towel randomly wrapped around me – how’s THAT for offensive? just went for my 1st fitting – my friends see that it’s TOTALLY me. my fam prob still thinks i could do better but have learnt to shut up.

I love it!  I think it’s beautiful!  I can see how the word “cute” might throw you off, but maybe they didn’t mean it as “cutesy” cute — more like a STUNNING cute!

I think “sweet” or “romantic” would be a bit more accurate than “cute” — but I agree with the above comments, that “cute” didn’t mean “appropriate for a five-year-old.”

I agree with the others. The dress is FABULOUS and cute really isn’t appropriate for describing that dress. Don’t worry about what others think of the dress. If you LOVE it… Own it!

Oh my god, that dress is absolutely stunning!! I would never describe it as cute – cute to me means poofy, younger bride. This is something a celebrity would wear, beautiful dress congrats!!

I think it’s gorgeous!!!  Do you have any pictures of you in it?  I love the sweetheart neckline, the lace edging at the bottom and the belt… love it!

I agree…I wouldn’t ever use “cute” to describe that dress…and I could see myself also being a little thrown by the “cute” compliment.  Your dress is gorgeous!!!! The lace gives it a romantic feel while the fit adds a hint of sexiness! Great choice…be sure to post pictures after the big day!

Some people just say “cute” for everything.  I know I say cute in reference to makeup, clothes, animals, home decor, etc. etc.  It’s just a word I use a lot.

That dress is not cute meaning like teddy bears or three year olds.  It’s a gorgeous dress and I’m sure everybody agrees.  They’re just probably like me and use the word cute excessively ;o)

I think that’s a lovely, romantic dress.  Cute isn’t exactly the word I’d use to describe it.

After seeing the photo of my dress (and me in it), my MIL kept saying how “interesting” and “different” my dress was.  It kind of bothered me, as if I were wearing something crazy and ridiculous.  I knew she didn’t like the dress, but she was too passive agressive to admit it.  Of course, on the wedding day, she told me all about how she didn’t like the dress when she saw it in photos and she thought I made a huge mistake.  She said that she liked it  better in person, but I was still totally annoyed.

I told my aunt once that her new tahitian black pearl (from bf #200) was “cute” and she REAMED me for it. I liked the setting! I thought its swirly design was really cute. I also know she’s a gold digger and therefore was all “whatev” about it, lol

Oye. WHO KNEW! i agree, maybe cuz it’s preppy? Or just b/c its not their perception of a wedding dress (big and poffy) but man i really like it! Romantic for sure.

I am guilty of using the cute word.. Until I looked on this board I had no idea that some people were offended when the word cute is used (I try to be careful now that I know!)… I am sure they didn’t mean little girl cute.. it’s a beautiful dress.

Hah, i agree that some people say “cute” for everything. In fact, my sister says it’s “cute” when a song she likes comes on the radio!

Anyway, I also agree that “sweet” may be the word to use instead of “cute”. There is definitely a sweet appeal to it. It’s totally stunning, but not overly “sexy”, and it’s also not a typical poofy wedding gown – maybe that’s where “cute” came from. Either way, it’s a gorgeous dress, don’t question it!
