I don’t like those styles they remind me of baked alaskas but if you like it then go for it

Keep your accessories to the bare minimum and that should tone it down

Is your wedding formal or more casual?

@Amasmash:  I think its gorgeous!! People expect you to be super fancy, as you are the bride!

If you want to tone it down from what is pictured here, just wear really simple accessories. Pearl studs, maybe a pretty bracelet.

The bride can never be overdressed for her own wedding. If your someone with a simple style, this is your one chance where you get a free pass to totally glam it up. Your dress is gorgeous and as long as it makes you feel beautiful, no one will think you look silly.

I’m sure you will look beautiful! You got it for a reason. Everyone has doubts here or there. Try not to worry yourself into a tizzy.

Sorry, I just dont think there’s a way to tone this down or make it less formal.

Just remember how you felt in it when you tried it on — if you loved it then, I’m sure you’ll love it the day of your wedding! Even if the dress is fancier than your venue, or than everyone else will be, who cares? You only get to do this once, and I have NEVER been to a wedding where anyone thought the bride looked too fancy — if you feel amazing, you will look amazing!

Maybe get rid of the “pleats” in the bottom? Make it a straighter skirt?

I think it’s very pretty. 

Keep your accessories simple. Maybe a very simple necklace and a single layer, non-embellished veil. What is the style/feel of your wedding? 

All that matters is that you love it. Try to remember that 🙂

could you get the pick ups minimized?  And keep your accessories simple

If there is any day a girl deserves to dress to her nines, it’s her Wedding Day!

What kind of wedding are you having? If it’s a beach or backyard wedding, probably a tad over but hey it’s your wedding day and I have never heard anyone said,”Look at how overdressed the bride is?!”.

If you get super self conscious perhaps minimize your accessories – no or thin bracelet, no necklace (because bodice has intricate design) and small dangly or stud earrings.

If you removed the crinoline and cut any train so the full hem was floor-length, no longer, it would give a flatter, smoother shape and an overall less elaborate feel to it. Also as a PP suggested, seeing if the pickups could be removed might really help create a less formal look.
