It definitely looks like a wedding dress, and you definitely look like a bride. I’m not a fan of wedding dresses with a sheer bodice, but if that’s what you like it honestly looks great on you. It’s a very pretty dress.

FutureMrs.White:  I’m going to agree that the top of the gown doesn’t look bridal at all. What if you lined the bodice? Maybe that would make it feel more like a formal gown? You look beautiful in it, regardless.

To start, It’s stunning! however, im not a fan of sheer bodices, I think that’s prob what makes you feel it’s less “formal”, it is def more prom and less wedding because of that. im sure a tailor could put fabric under the lace and totally transform the dress. It looks great on you and is very elegant and regal sans the sheerness.

I agree that I would prefer it with a lined bodice, but that’s only because I dislike showing that much skin, not because it doesn’t look great on you. A lining would make it more formal, and you wouldn’t lose all of the great detailing on the bodice that makes the dress really gorgeous.

FutureMrs.White:  Line the bodice if you want a more “traditional” look. It definitely screams “wedding” to me, even as it is.

Are you looking for words of advice from others who have gone through dress regret? I never fully had dress regret but I will tell you that being on here doesn’t help!!! You will always see other dresses that you think you will love. Remember you loved that dress for a reason. It fits you beautifully?

are you looking for validation? I don’t give that but like I said that silhouette looks gorgeous on you! I love the back. I don’t care for the top because it reminds me of bridal lingerie. However, I think once you are all done up on your big day you will be just fine!

I’d also line the bodice, but it definitely looks like a wedding dress.

I think the dress fits you beautifully and the dress itself is beautiful and you definitely look like a bride to me. Pesonally though, I would line the top part.
