You are the only one who would know unless you tell someone. If you feel like a bride when you try it on then it is bridal enough. This is one of the situations where what other people have to say doesn’t really matter, because it is about how you feel in it. A beautiful dress is a beautiful dress no matter the label.

Do it! I went looking at several prom/bridal stores. I found serveral dresses that were very similar to popular wedding dresses. The biggest thing that stopped me was the ones I found online and loved, were not at the locations I was looking at. 

I don’t think anyone would be able to tell its not a ‘bridal’ gown.

FutureMrsHodgy:  I think it looks so gorgeous, and if you have a body to pull it off that is even more reason to do it…but depending on the location and venue of your wedding, this could either work or not.

I seriously considered this for a long time. I’m still exploring options at sites. I have limited shops where I live so I’ve resorted to online. Besides that, a couple local shops were super snobby about my desire to try on a prom dress instead so I decided I was done with that here. That dress is gorgeous, and you look amazing in it! It’s *your* day’ wear what you love!

I worked at a high-end prom boutique for a while and many girls used the expensive ($700-$900) Jovani and Sherri Hill Prom dresses as wedding dresses all the time especially if they wanted more of a couture look but couldn’t afford the bridal designers. Many of their dresses come in ivory, white, champagne, and blush.

FutureMrsHodgy:  I wouldn’t question it’s credentials as a wedding gown. If that’s you in the picture well I’d say you and the dress are a perfect (stunning!) match.

FutureMrsHodgy:  I think that dress is stunning! The only thing I’d say about is that the neckline could maybe be brought up a bit, like the lace panel raised.

If that is you, I am totally jealous of your flawless figure and hair! You look like a real life barbie doll! Beautiful!
