Personally I think the styling makes you look a fair bit older than I am guessing you really are. I’d look for something a little less matronly.

I think this would be great for an elegant business reception. It just doesn’t wow me as a wedding dress (would be great for the Mother of the Bride though).

I LOVE it! It’s very classy and beautiful! It reminds me of the 1920s.

I love it. It’s absolutely beautiful and very elegant. I don’t think it makes you look matronly at all, to me it looks like a great combination of old Hollywood glamour and today!

I think it’s beautiful and am assuming you already bought it? I love the style and sparkle! It is definitely NOT matronly or MOB ish.

Okay, honest opinion:


That dress is so beautiful. It’s got such a classic vintage feel to it, AND it looks amazing on you. You have to wear it! But not on your wedding day (IMO).

It doesn’t say bridal to me at all. Now, I am not sure what kind of wedding you are having (court house, elopement, church, Destination Wedding, etc.), but if you are having a traditional type wedding, you will not stand out as the bride (everyone will know obviously, but the WOW look at the BRIDE factor will be diminished for me).The bride should definelty be the main attraction, the center of attention, wearing the best dress in the house.

What if one of your guests wears a more extravagent than your’s (the one in the pic)?

The dress is amazing, hands down, I wishI had it, but it wouldn’t be my choice for my once-in-a-lifetime wedding day…

Follow your guts, that is just my opinion 😉

Oooohh I like it!  It’s very vintage and old Hollywood!  And if you’re the type who typically takes the road less travelled, this is a great look 🙂  You look beautiful!
