    It’s your wedding! I think that dress is STUNNING and I would definitely keep it!

    Don’t change a think.  I’ve seen tons of photos with fancier dresses and a fun/low key/more casual wedding theme, and it looks fine.  Wedding dresses are supposed to be fancy 🙂

    I think accessories will make or break the decision of whether the dress will go with your theme or not. But I definitely don’t think you HAVE to change your theme.

    I’m generally not a fan of themes but I do think a cohesive look is important. Your dress is lovely but ‘yes it would look out of place if the groomsmen are wearing suspenders and bowties.  Either switch the theme to true 1950s wedding, which would let you keep the dress but change your colors and the outfits for the men (1950s weddings were elegant affairs). Or change the dress to fit more of the casual 1950s vibe you’re going for and do something in the Dior silheouette with a birdcage veil.

    Your dress looks very 50s! I could totally see Grace Kelly in that. The rest of your theme sounds casual compared to your dress, but 50s evening style dresses were glamorous! The only way I think you’re going to get a 50s look that is more casual is if you wear a tea-length, Dolly Couture type dress. If you want to wear a floor-length dress, stick with that one. I love it!

    Don’t change it! As the bride, its your perogative to be as overdressed for your wedding as you want to be. 

    FWIW, my husband wore a classic black tux and I wore a huge ballgown to our casual outdoor wedding. Our guests were in sundresses and slacks/dress shirt. We didn’t feel out of place at all!

    @xbrittfacee:  It might not exactly fit in with the theme but who really cares? It’s YOUR wedding day and it’s supposed to be full of things you like. One thing though, DO NOT try to work red/blue accents into the dress because it’s not going to look good. I think the dress already has a definite ‘look’ that isn’t versatile and if you start trying to make it fit with your theme it’s just going to look weird. 

    I would say that if you’re worried about it not fitting in with your theme then make sure to do 50s hair and makeup or maybe a 50s style hair accessory or something.

    @Eglantine:  Mmm, I don’t think her dress is very fifties at all. The fashion for wedding dresses in the fifties was nowhere near that.

    I don’t think your dress is 50s, but it definitely has a vintage feel that would work with your theme. I personally don’t think you need to change anything!

    I think if the dress was short (tea length), it would fit the theme. 🙂

    @BridieBea: I disagree. I think the shape of the dress has a 1950s look (not necessarily a 1950s “wedding dress”) – the natural waist and the full/floaty skirt – certainly as compared to many of the popular wedding dress styles today.

    @Eglantine:  I think it would have to be less puffy to look like a fifties dress.
