Pish posh – your dress is lovely. And my theory is that a bride can never be over-dressed for her wedding!

I love your dress! It is super flattering and totally gorgeous. I don’t think it is too fancy or formal at all. It is your wedding- wear what you want!

This is a tough question, but let me start with if you LOVE your dress, just stop worrying about it!  You look gorgeous!

With that said, it is a little formal for a barn reception, but that’s just my opinion.

And I kind of feel like maybe you are having second thoughts about the dress (otherwise you wouldn’t even consider switching), and if you think you can afford another one, go for it!

I don’t think so at all…I got married in a garden/barn too and my dress was a similar style. The only thing that would look out of place in that setting is a big ballgown or tons of beading and lace, imo.

A barn can be very dressed up.. and it sounds like you are going pretty formal since you are having chivari chairs. I got married a barn too with a formal look and my dress had beading all over the bodice.  Your dress is perfect.. don’t second guess yourself!

It sounds like your wedding has a juxtaposition of fancy elements in a rustic setting, so your dress is perfect!

It’s beautiful!  I love all the criss-cross weaving! 

I worried about the same thing with my dress/wedding style.  In the end I decided to heck with it- I liked the dress and so what if it classes up the reception a bit (which I don’t think it will TOO dramatically, with mine or with yours).

Love the dress! I agree with all the ladies above, You can never be over dressed for your own wedding.

But if you’re not comfortable with that than maybe you could consider getting a separate dress for the reception. One that you feel fits the rustic theme more.
