Help please bees!
I am in LOVE with my dress and already bought it last week. But since then I am having doubts if it fits my venue, bridesmaids, and overall ‘feel’ of the wedding.
I guess I should give you a little background. I live in Central Oregon and am getting married on a quaint, working cattle ranch with a 100+ year old barn in tiny Sisters, OR. Love it! We are doing a rustic, simple theme with bbq, a live country band and lots o’ mason jars and vintage glass. I am wearing my cowboy boots with my dress.
I originally wanted a dress that was lace and vintagey, but PLAIN! Absolutely no bling, flowers, sparkle, NADA. No strapless and no corset. PLAIN!
And what did I fall in love with? The GATSBY which has ALL of above! (I have no idea how that happened but I couldn’t take the darn thing off and bought it on the spot)
Here is a pic of me in the sample. I am getting the champagne colored version, not the ivory I am in (didn’t actually see that color…eek) So sorry for the long post, but is this too fancy pants for my venue and boots??
Here is a link to the photo. Kodak wouldn’t let me download the pic out of a slideshow.

@Randi Aud: Not sure if it’s my computer (mac), but I couldn’t see it. Can you take a screenshot instead?

- Wedding: October 2011 - Tre Bella, Mesa, AZ
I also couldn’t get it to load (Mac). I actually like the contrast of extravagant dresses and quant venues. I think it looks just lovely. Of course, that might not be “traditional” or “etiquette”. 🙂

I think she is referring to the Gatsby by Maggie

Sorry the pic of me in it wouldn’t work! But yes, that is my dress. It will be champagne colored and I don’t think I will wear the straps.
Thanks for the input!

I think your derss is beautiful! I think it’ll look great with your cowboy boots, especially with the waist ribbon-belt.

No such thing as overdressed for your own wedding.

I was able to upload a jpeg of me in the sample.
Thanks everyone for the comments.
@sailor – love your comment. Never really thought about that point! 🙂

No, I think it’s great for a ranch wedding.

Oh sweetie, it’s perfect! You’re the star anyway! If it were a big ballgown I would worry, but since it’s so sleek, it’s a great fit 🙂

We were married in Bend! I think your dress is perfect for your wedding. I love how it looks strapless. Congrats on a beautiful dress and fantastic location for your big day!

Thanks bees! I am so glad I found this site 🙂
@sadie – was your photographer Kimberly Kay? I feel like your dress/bouquet look familiar?
