    @pmm1019:  I would say that your dress is the opposite of rustic!  Will DB take it back or would you try to sell it?

    The dress isn’t rustic, but it looks beautiful on you so I don’t think you should change it!  I am having a beach wedding and wearing a beaded lace gown, not very beachy.  I don’t think the dress needs to fit the theme perfectly, as long as you love it and feel pretty in it!

    @pmm1019:  IMO, I dont think it works with whats planned.. I picture a lace dress… but again thats just my opinion..

    it will definitely fit with a rustic theme, I went to a wedding this past weekend (rustic theme) and the bride wore the same dress and it fit BEAUTIFULLY! She even wore it with cowboy boots, it was in a barn/outside ceremony!!!!!

    If you are able to exchange it, a lace dress would look best with a rustic theme.

    Here’s my take on the whole “does my dress fit the theme” thing…who gives a shit. You love your decor and you love your dress. No one is going to think “omg her dress isn’t rustic enough, ew”. You look beautiful in your dress and that’s what everyone else is going to be thinking!

    No one is going to think “OMG her dress does not match with the theme of this wedding, what was she thinking????” When I start obesessing about those type of things (which is often!) I think about all of the weddings I’ve been to and what I remember thinking while I was there or observing. NEVER ONCE did I compare the style of the brides dress to the venue/theme. If you love your dress, keep it!  I too am doing a rustic/burlap/love bird theme outside at a winery, and this is my dress, which is not rustic but I love it! So too bad 🙂

    my dress doesn’t really go with our rustic theme ( Alfred Angelo 2314 ) either but who gives a crap! You look beautiful and you found YOUR dress. I wouldn’t change my dress just because of a venue 🙂 I’m wearing cowgirl boots and could care less what anyone thinks 😉

    @pmm1019:  is it rustic? No not really, but do you love it? It only matters if it bothers YOU that it doesn’t fit your theme – I assure you no one is going to notice.

    I don’t really think that dress fits with what you described, but if you really love it, you can definitely make it work. A lot of it will be in the styling and the bouquet.

    Personally, I don’t see why the dress has to match the venue.  You need to look amazing in a dress that makes you feel amazing, and you have that!  I’m wearing a fancy dress and FI is wearing a full tux and we are getting married outside at a rustic venue… I couldn’t care less 🙂

    @pmm1019: I think it looks country/romantic/barn wedding material, so totally rustic by my definition!
