After falling in love with the Justin Alexander 8465 and a deal falling through on oncewed.com at the last minute, I impulse purchased a rush ordered Monique Lhuiller that I hope will match well with my vintage rustic wedding in a barn in Asheville. Is this dress to dressy?
I’m trying to accessorize it “vintagely” with shoes and lace gloves, a birdcage is ordered on etsy, but isn’t here yet!
Right now the dress is too big! I found these shoes!

I think it definitely has a vintage look to it! Perhaps it’s not as vintage as some of the full lace gowns out there, but that is totally fine. Your vintage inspired accessories will tie the whole look together. It is a beautiful dress! I’m glad you are able to get it rushed to you since your other dress plan didn’t happen. That would have made me sooooo nervous!

Its really nice. I love that it looks vintage but still has enough structure for a real women. What kid of jewelry are you planning on wearring?

Since the dress is a halter, I’m not wearing a necklace, but small vintage pearl earrings. I ordered two headpieces because I wasn’t sure which one I would like and they take 6 weeks to custom order, so it’s not like I could go out and get another one at the last minute. Here are the two head pieces I ordered:
Perhaps my Fiance will add more vintage with his suit which has a matching jacket:

@tricia07: I was incredibly stressed about it! I purchased a listing on oncewed.com, which you do at your own risk. When she got the dress she decided to keep it and my money:-(

I don’t know why all-lace has come to equal vintage…your dress looks perfect for your venue, flowy & classic.
Also- I love your fiance’s outfit. Where is it from?

I definitely get the vintage feel from the halter & sweetheart neckline! Your hair & makeup is really going to seal the look!

I don’t feel like just because you don’t have a full lace gown that your dress can’t have a vintage feel. I think you made a great choice!

Great great choice. Vintage is about combining dressy and old nostalgic. I think that dress highlights the theme beautifully. Nice job. Monique dresses are just lovely.

My Fiance got the suit from express, the under shirt from J Crew and the shoes are vintage wing tip oxfords from a consignment store. Thanks for all your reassuring comments everyone!
