Hive, I need your help.
I found a dress I love, but I’m not sure if it will look good on me. I’m also not sure it will go with the whole feel of my wedding.
Here’s the deal: FI and I have an apple orchard reception planned for next August.I want the reception to feel elegant and romantic (lots of candles), yet playful. The problem is, we haven’t booked our ceremony location. It’ll probably either be at a church or outside in a park. Do you think the dress will work for either location? What about all the lace?
Also, the sample was about 2 to 3 sizes too small, so keep that in mind. What do you think about how the dress looks on me? Is there any way to tell how it would look since it’s too small?
I’ve lost five pounds since I tried the dress on, and I plan to lose more, but I have a while until the wedding. The manager worked out a good deal on this dress and I’ll save about $500 if I put a deposit down by the end of the month.
So, what do you think?

you might want to put a poll on here so you can get consensus – i think its a beautiful dress – but dunno if its too formal with allt he sparkly thingies on it for an orchard wedding (i think more casual) what kind of dress (semi formal, casual, black tie optional) are you thinking for it?

I think it will fit your romantic and fun apple orchard reception. I really love the idea of all the beading on the dress being lit up by all the candles!!! Great choice!!!!

I think it looks great! And if it looks great at 2-3 sizes too small then i think it will be completely awesome when it’s your size, at least that is how it worked for me with my dress! I also think it is fine for an orchard reception (of course I’m biased because I’m wearing a formal gown to an outdoor ceremony and barn reception).

I think it is perfect for the orchard and for the church or park location. I can envision how it will look on you when you get to your goal weight. I think you will look beautiful. My gown is also a little small on me, so I am trying to lose weight to look better in it, but I can also envision my look when I get to my goal. I have total faith that you will get to your goal and look just the way you want.

there is nothing more romantic than lace. i think the formality of that dress would be great for a church/park & orchard wedding that was held in the evening, but i’m not sure about an afternoon affair. shapewise it’s great on you and in your size will be perfect and uber flattering.

Hello fellow Indiana bride. I think the dress looks beautiful on you and would be perfect for your theme. Have you looked into Conner Prairie? I dont know what part of Indiana you are from but Conner Prairie could probably put on an awesome apple orchard theme wedding. Either way, the dress is georgous!
