The ceremony will be held at a pretty park gazebo and the reception will be at a pavillion in the same park. It is not a super fancy affair, more laid back really. I was going to wear a much simpler dress (a white bridemaid’s dress, really) but now that my grandma has offered to buy my gown my budget is much larger. I started looking at dresses and fell in love with one that will probably look out of place at my wedding. What do you think?? ((SORRY for the HUGE picture))

It will be fine for a park/outdoor wedding!
I am planning on having an outdoor wedding, so I bought a white bridesmaid dress ($50, sheath-ishstyle) and had instant dress regret. I am adding a fuller skirt, making it tea length etc… basically turning it into my dream dress, not the one I “ought to wear.”
The moral of that story is- if you don’t LOVE the dress, you will feel regret. And yes, you may get regret buying the “fancier” dress, but it will disapear whenever you putlit on. It is your WEDDING! You get one of these!! Buy a dress you love.

I didn’t vote, but I say try it on and see if you love it as much in person before you write it off. That does seem to suit a more urban, evening affair at a glance, but you may very well be able to make it work perfectly in your setting.

That is a beautiful dress, and I think it would be perfectly fine with your venue! 🙂

AAhhh! Thanks ladies. I think I am going to go try this on very soon! I think that I need to see it on before I decide whether it really is appropriate. I also feel like I need to try some flowy a-line taffeta dresses. We will see!

You are the bride, you can never be over dressed. 🙂 That dress is gorgeous.

I think it’s fine for an outdoor wedding. I ended up going fancier than I wanted once I tried things on and found one I loved. I also think that even though the style of the dress is formal, the fact that there’s not much bling or shine to it makes it easier to fit in with a casual wedding.

I actually think this is great for your theme…it really isnt TOOO fancy and crazy, it is formal and very bridal…but not bedazzled like mad. DO IT!

I think it’s fine for your wedding.
On another note, taffeta is not flowy. In fact, it’s quite stiff. If you want flowy, maybe tulle or organza would be better.

@mrsSonthebeach: Thanks! It just LOOKs so flowy, lol. I am dragging my mom out this weekend to get on “hands-on” experience. I am trying it ALL on! Lol.

I think that dress absolutely still works. I would consider it simple anyway because it’s not a blinged out big puffy ball gown, it’s just sleek and sophisticated.

I say go for it! Maybe just keep the jewellery toned down a little and it feel more “laid back” as you said. Congrats.
