    I love the one you just posted! I say do what you’ve always dreamt of, just add a veil. Everything looks bridal with a veil:) This is pronovias, very “little mermaid”

    I think you could totally do sequins. But FYI if you’ve never worn a sequin dress they can get a little itchy and uncomfortable. Particularly in the underarm area.

    I think if you’ve always dreamed of a dress/feeling like the scene from The Little Mermaid, why not get a dress like that? Many people have non-white/ivory dresses, so why not have an amazing gown that you’ve always dreamed of?

    I think you can absolutely do a sequined dress, but I think the particular one you posted isn’t the most bridal. Picking the right style will help, and so would choosing one that’s not 100% sequined and/or less heavily sequined. There are a few on the first page of this thread, and I think they would all be more bridal than the one you have posted, just as examples: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/if-white-was-not-an-option#axzz2jT7SWG9u

    I love them but I am biased cos I had them 🙂 however I prefer them to be more muted and pearly/iridescent like the one edepp2010 posted because even though I wanted a statement dress, I didn’t want to be too in-your-face with it. But if your personality is more outgoing then you could probably pull off the gold.

    Also regarding the scratchiness, here’s a tip. The more sparse and flat they sit, the less scratchy they are 🙂

    This was totally my inspiration too!

    Hahaha, I love The Little Mermaid. I’m all for sequined wedding dresses, but that one in particular does strike me as more prom/pageant appropriate than bridal. What about a slightly more demure style?

    @peonyinparis:  I love those!!!

     

    @dswiney:  Not a fan of the second at all. It’s way too prom for my liking!

    Is your fiance a fan of sequins? It might sound silly, but I know a lot of guys who HATE them. Not sure why, but they do. My boyfriend told me he’d love me in any dress, then I asked him what if I picked a sequoined gown and he told me that was a deal breaker (obviously kidding, but I know he’d much prefer one without). Just a thought 🙂
