i bought this dress because i fell in love with it as soon as i seen it on the hanger (i tried plenty on before and after though). Our wedding was supposed to be held at a very large, very fancy wedding venue…but we decided to do it at the family church instead to save money! The church is a small (fits around 100 people) country church. It’s beautiful though! but our reception isn’t going to be super fancy. My dad is grilling out so we can have BBQ and other side items. Were also doing a cupcake tower. So out wedding isnt story-book-fancy…and i feel like maybe my dress is to fancy for the ocassion? please give me your opinion! Should i shorten it to knee lenght? or maybe cut the train off if it is too fancy?pinion!

@Zimmehh:The dress is gorgeous and if you love it, then you should wear it.
You are the bride, it is impossible for you to be overdressed.
If you love it, I say go for it!

I don’t think it’s too fancy… the lace detailing has kind of a country flair, so I think it works. And you look beautiful in it! Maybe add a colorful cardigan after the ceremony to make it more casual?

@Zimmehh: OMG don’t you dare do anything to that dress! 🙂 It is…just perfect on you. I am almost in tears and don’t know why! LOL It truly is breathtakingly beautiful and I can just imagine you in the setting you describe (totally agree with previous poster saying the lace has a country flair–YES!) I think it will fit your wedding day just fine because it suits you so well! From the ballroom to the meadow, heck you could stand in a parking lot and it would work! 🙂 What colors and flowers are you thinking?

@Cornflakegirl: were doing purple and white, i think purple orchids in water for the centerpeices and lilys for my boquet! and i would really love to make the wedding have a rustic feel. ( were both pretty country anyway (: )

You don’t need to make your dress less formal. This is your one day, and you should go all out. How often do you get to wear a big beautiful white dress?

Seriously, that dress is gorgeous! You look amazing in it! The Bride can never be over-dressed. 😉 I agree with PPs about the country flair, and maybe putting a cardigan on or wearing colorful flats/boots/whatever. 🙂 Think it’d be adorable.

The dress looks stunning and fancy but there is no too fancy for a bride. You should be the focus of that day, so go for it if you like it!
