    I think it really depends on your style and how “conservative” your family/guests might be. It’s not super revealing, but it actually quite short underneath the tulle.

    Depends on how formal your wedding is,  I honestly would almost rather see that as a short dress or with a asymmetrical hem, I would think for a casual afternoon wedding its fine.

    It kind of reminds me of something you would see on “Dancing with the Stars” or some other similarly themed TV show. I personally would never wear it, it’s a bit showy for my style, bit if you typically dress kind of revealing, it might work.

    I really do like it, but I think that it needs an extra layer of tulle on the skirt. It needs a little something on the skirt part, in my opinion.

    Just going to come out and say it – I don’t like the dress. I think it does look cheap (and half-finished). As a very casual reception dress it might work, but I still think you can do a lot better.

    Honestly? It’s horrid. It looks like underwear. And I’m not even conservative or religious.

    Personally, it’s not my taste. I’m not huge on the see through. However, it’s your wedding and your event so obviously it matters how you feel. If it’s not a super formal wedding, then I don’t see why not you couldn’t wear it.

    I think all you need is one or two more layers of tulle and it’ll be perfect.

    Since you ask for opinions — I think it looks terrible!   It looks like someone took a sleeping underwear and added lace and tulle to lengthen it.

    If it had more tulle it would probably look a lot better. Its perfectly casual for the wedding you’ve described, but I really do think more tulle would make all the difference.

    pinkpower:  It’s really up to you. Its your day and as long as you look and feel great that’s all that counts. If it were mine… I’d just add more tulle and remove the thin straps.

    Hmmm… something is a little jarring about how you have all this lovely, thick lace, and then suddenly it cuts off and is so sheer. I think if you put another semi-sheer layer under the top half of the sheer portion, so the sheerness went gradually from a little more opaque to as sheer as it is currently, it might look a little nicer.

    arabbel:  I agree, the transition is too drastic and a bit jarring. I’m sure you could find something more flattering — or pay to possibly have lining added/reworked so that it “flows” better.
