Gorgeous! I can see it working for either winter or summer. I’d wear a furry jacket or some kind of accessory for warmth for a winter wedding, though.

Your dress looks beautiful it is gorgeous and the extra bits sound amazing.  I don’t think you should be worrying just remember that ‘themes’ are a relatively new wedding concept and no-one should be judging you on your wedding ideas.

My personal opinion on wedding dresses and ‘matching them’ to venues is that virtually any dress the bride wants to wear will look amazing and fit the venue just fine. The only exceptions to this rule are if the dress will be very physically uncomfortable (eg. huge heavy polyster ballgown on the steaming hot beach) or is tacky for other reasons (eg. barely covers her butt or is otherwise basically lingerie).

If you love the dress, wear the dress. A couple of pretty accessories will make it fit equally well into a winter wedding, a flowery spring day, or a circus extravaganza. In the end, the bride always looks gorgeous on her wedding day.

Jamichristine05:  Oh my goodness, so so gorgeous! I’m not even going to address your question about the time of year as it is redundant with a dress that amazing and well suited to you. Forget the weather and theme, I suspect they will be mysteriously compelled to fit in with your beautiful dress – it’s all basic physics really 😉

This dress is versatile and will definitely work for spring as well as a winter wedding. Try not to overthink it!

The dress is gorgeous, and not like many that I’ve seen, so I love it for that. It looks like the Amsale Coco which is a majorly expensive dress! And it really suits your figure – not everyone can pull off that style, but you do!

As PPs have said, it doesn’t really matter whether your dress fits a theme. The only things that really matter is whether the dress is blatantly too heavy to be comfortable for a summer wedding, or too flimsy for a winter wedding, whether it’s going to be practical (e.g. squeezing a big ballgown down a narrow aisle) and perhaps whether it will photograph well against the venue/lighting. So far it ticks all the boxes. Also, IMHO the spaghetti straps give it a more summery vibe to me anyway.

Jamichristine05:  I am in similar shoes! Evening winter, small steakhouse wedding turned into fall light, early brunch wedding and now I feel like I should have bought a different dress! Stupid changes messing with our decision making! My dress is actually pretty similar to yours. I’m sure both of our dresses will remain perfect! 😀
