So, I am not a big princess poofy dress bride. I have tried on around 50 dresses and haven’t had a single emotion towards any of them. I fell in love with this dress online and even tried it on and really liked it but I didn’t have any crazy emotions or cry or anything like that when it was on. I felt beautiful and like Audrey Hepburn in it and thought it would be great for my NYC black tie wedding. I am just curious if maybe it is too mature for me? I am 25 and 5’8 and skinny with no chest so I have had a hard time with strapless and v-neck dresses as they have just made me look even flatter. Here is the pic of it on the model

You sound exactly like me. I’m a little older (29) and a little taller (5’10), but other than that every thing you’ve said is what I went through when buying a dress.
I also was looking for something different – definitely not poofy. I also found my dress online and fell in love with it, tried it on, felt great in it, but again, didn’t cry or have any kind of spectacular reaction to it.
I don’t think that dress is too mature for you, I think it looks very very classy and elegant. If you feel great in the dress, I’d buy it. I bought mind and by the time I got home I started to feel really excited about it – not crying or anything, but very excited.
Please let us know what you decide to do!

It looks perfect for the style and event you described. I didn’t have *that* feeling either – but if you felt beautiful, you’ve got it!!!

Any idea how you would style the dress? Jewelry, hair, veil or no, etc? To me this looks more like a red carpet dress than a wedding dress, but it is definitely very elegant and black tie! Of course it depends on the “look” you are going for with your wedding, but I think styling could play a major role in this dress looking too mature.

@Lbward6: I like this dress. I would wear it with a necklace ”backwards”. Very elegant and feminine !

I don’t think the dress looks too mature for you at all. The model is probably younger than you (or has a serious baby face going on! lol) and she looks beautiful in the dress, IMO.
To tell you the truth it’s a dress I would never consider for myself because I’m the exact opposite of you (short and curvy) and this is not a forgiving dress. But you seem to be blessed with a model-like shape so go for it! If you love the dress, rock it!

@Lbward6: I absolutely love this dress… it is so glamerous 🙂
I love the neckline combined with it being backless. Which designer it is?
I wouldn’t worry too much about not feeling emotion… I know some people do but I bought my dress because the moment I saw it I thought what a beautiful dress and just loved it, I then tried it on and thought that it really suited me… I also tried on other dresses but my opinion was always either this suits me/I like this but not this on it/I don’t think this dress flatters me e.t.c I guess I am not just not the sort of person who would cry over a dress.
I guess I only ever really cry if something bad happens or something upsets me… maybe I would cry if I absolutely wanted a dress that was far too expensive but not because I found the dress I love.
So I wouldn’t worry too much, if you were visualising you wearing it on your wedding day and felt happy and confident in it I reckon thats your sign that its the dress for you.

I don’t like it. I think the front looks like a sac. However, that is just me. If you like it, then go for it. Also, perhaps you look better in it than she does!

@Lbward6: I love it. Sleek, classic, and glam. Perfect for a NY black-tie affair. You won’t regret that dress in ten, twenty, 100 years.

@Lbward6: I really like it – it does remind me a little of the dress Kate Hudson wore in How to Lose a Guy in 10 Days, but I loved that dress too.
I’m picturing one of my friends who has the body you described and it would be stunning on her.

Thanks so much for all the feedback! I was beginning to get discouraged in my dress search and this has really been the only dress I have been attracted to and my mom loves it too! All of your responses are making me start to get excited, maybe since I tried it on alone it felt awkward just staring at myself in the mirror while the bridal consultant just looked on haha.
@Kezzy So glad someone else felt the same way! I was beginning to think I was an anti-bride!
@agrinste1 I was thinking of hair up in a low bun but still loose and slightly toussled. I want to wear a birdcage veil and some big sparkly earrings.
@tails It is Sarah Janks, she maks some of the most beautiful and unique designs
