It’s a beautiful dress, but in my opinion the veil, especially the lace on that particular veil looks a bit much and makes it look a little dated. I think that might be what’s making you think it looks older. The dress on its own is gorgeous. My dress is nothing like what I thought I’d end up with, but that’s not always a bad thing… Follow your heart and don’t let anyone rush you.

I honestly…. don’t like it at all.  But that’s because it’s not my taste.  If you can’t stop thinking about it, revisit it!  Who cares what anyone else thinks.

I really like the dress, but the veil/headpiece is too much.

@JustJen_wd:  Totally agree with above post. The dress is GORGEOUS but the headpiece and especially the veil are dating it. Too much going on. Lovely dress though. Have you considered a birdcage or different headpiece to balance out the modern/vintage feeling? My dress is nothing like I had in mind either!

The dress is really pretty. I think the veil is too much for the dress. Also belt  makes your dress have a younger feel and is really cute.

I think it could just be the veil as well. Maybe if the neckline was changed to a sweetheart it would look younger. I feel bad but want to be honest. The other day I was at a salon with my daughter and someones mom was with her daughter and was making her get a dress with a bolero that was like something that she would wear. I felt really bad I could tell she was just trying to make her mom happy. Pressure can make you impulsive so take your time.

I love the dress, but think the headpiece/viel takes away from it, I would go with something simpler.

The veil and headpiece need to go for something edgier and more youthful to balance the dress and maybe a change in belt as well. The dress is beautiful but Im not 100% sure about the straps (maybe with change in accesories they would work better). Yay for 22 year old brides.

Normally lace is not my cup of tea but I really like this dress. I love the cut on you and the modest dip in the bodice. You look really lovely and it is definitely flattering and very romantic.

I do agree with the PP that the veil with the lace/flowers is just too much. I almost thought you were wearing a bolero or shawl or something similar.

@JustJen_wd:  Definitely! The dress is gorgeous but theaccessories (veil and hairpiece) aren’t the right fit for it. Change those upAndy it will be perfect!

If you want a veil with that dress then I’d take the sleeves off and have it made strapless. As another Bee said, making the dress into a sweetheart neckline is also an idea worth considering.  Don’t be disheartend, we all have different tastes – if that dress, that veil etc make you feel like a million dollars then who the hell are we??

I think the dress is very sweet but also timeless. I do agree that a different veil is needed. Have you considered a raw edge drop veil?
