Not necessarily. Although the pickup style seems to be phasing out on the runways, it’s still going strong in retail (which is how fashion trends work out normally, anyway). So, if you want to get the dress, go right ahead! πŸ™‚

A sample from Fall 2013 Bridal:

Pnina Tornai

St. Pucchi

 

Ines di Santo

Not at all! The Sabelle is lovely! I got the similar Maggie Sottero Decandence as my gown. However, I won’t be wearing it with all the crinoline underneath. Here’s me wearing it when I chose it. I am now 20 lbs lighter. πŸ™‚

 

And here is the model, of course.

I wore the Sabelle a year ago and it had been around a while then but I loved it. I also changed a few thing to make it my own.

Just so you know. If this post becomes popular I have a feeling many Bees will say it is outdated because many Bees dont like the dress and will have no problem telling you that.

If you feel beautiful you will look beautiful. Don’t go for trends, go for a dress that is “you”

Um, I personally don’t like pickups and the Sabelle is just not my style so maybe take this with a grain of salt. But, I’ve been married nearly two years and it was a very popular dress around the time I was planning my wedding. So, yeah, it’s probably not on the cutting edge of trends now. That said, all wedding dresses will date themselves eventually. I’m sure the style of my dress is phasing out (I wore Maggie Sottero Bernadette – lace with a keyhole back), but I still love it. 

If you love the dress, who cares whether someone else thinks its dated! 90% of you guests will have no idea what is on trend or not for the wedding stuff. Only brides and recent brides really have any idea about that. So just go for it if you like it.

@nonapkns:  Haha, I’m one of those Bees, but I thought it was far more productive to be helpful rather than blather on and on about how I don’t care for pickups. πŸ™‚ Hopefully, this doesn’t degenerate into one of those threads.

@MlleFabuleux:  idk. i thought it was important to mention that it never was my style so the OP could see there was a possible bias. I rarely read dress threads anymore so I guess I didn’t realize pickups were really something people got contentious about.

@Mrs.LemonDrop:  I think it’s fine to mention that you don’t like pickups if you vote “outdated,” because it does help OP know if you’re approaching the topic with a bias (like what you posted). I actually generally on’t like pickups either, but didn’t mention it in my original reply since I wasn’t necessarily calling it outdated.

I’m talking more about threads where people just end up dumping on someone else’s style preferences simply because it’s not to their personal tastes (when it wasn’t even requested). It just tends to happen more with certain style details (ex. pickups, shiny satin fabric, ruffled skirts, etc.)

ETA: I just re-read my previous comment, and I realized that it came across like I was talking about you, but I wasn’t. I actually had that comment typed out before I read your comment. That would be so passive-aggresively rude of me (NOT my style at all).

The only reason a lot of us have opinions on dresses is because we’re getting married and we’re all in the know of whats the ‘in’ thing and whats not. If i wasn’t getting married i’d have no idea as a wedding guest, if the dress was thought of as the latest thing or seen as outdated. If you love the dress have it, regardless of others opinions. Personally i think ts beautiful you do what you feel is right. Good luck.

@MlleFabuleux:  gotcha. Oh Weddingland. WB is funny in the way certain areas (dress, waiting, rings, nesting) have really specific “board cultures.” Totally out of the loop on the dress arguments.  ; ) 

OP, again, wear the dress you want! I think we all agree its about what YOU love and not the arbitrariness (yes I know that’s not a word) of trends versus dated.

I used to love that dress and think it was the one for me, until I got engaged. Then I starting thinking that it would be too much dress for me. Found a gorgeous mermaid I’m completely in love with instead and that suits me much better! Still a gorgeous gown though & I don’t care what anyone says, I still love Sabelle too. πŸ™‚

It’s not outdated. It has been a pretty popular dress for a while now, but I think people are still wearing it now. I think it’s very pretty. I considered it myself but didn’t like the extra folds and pickups in the skirt.
