I think it’s a gorgeous dress, I love boho stuff too. But it just doesn’t look formal enough for a wedding, especially if you’ve put so much effort and money into making your event formal. Maybe you could change into it for the reception or wear it for your rehearsal dinner..

I also feel it’s too casual for your wedding day.  How about brunch the morning after?

Agree that it’s not very formal.

It’s a very pretty dress, but I agree with the pp’s – not formal enough. I would wear it for the rehearsal dinner if you plan one.

lumosplease:  Rehearsal dinner! Although, honestly? Even if I hd your smokin bod, I would feel uncomfortable showing so much skin so I would find a cardigan in our wedding colors.

I would wear it for the reception if you want to wear it the day of, but definitely not formal enough for the wedding itself.

I second the “honeymoon” suggestion.  The dress is pretty, but not formal enough.

lumosplease:  Very pretty dress! I agree with honeymoon dress! Maybe I’m just being conservative, but it seems like a lot of skin to show at a formal event.

lumosplease:  its pretty. and you have an awesome figure. But I wouldn’t wear it during the wedding at all. Rehearsal dinner? Maybe – unless you are having a church ceremony than no because its showing way too much skin.

Personally, I wouldn’t wear it for anything related to the wedding because it shows a lot of skin, but if YOU are comfortable with that, than by all means – rock it. I just couldn’t do it because I am very conservative and I know my mom and MIL would have a heart attack lol!

I say wear it for your reception dress!! It’s sexy, you look great in it! Who cares if it’s not ‘formal’? I am having a more casual wedding though so I am biased

I would wear it for honeymoon if you are going somewhere warm and beachy.

Honeymoon! It’s too skimpy to wear around family or in pictures in my opinion. I think it would be great for a dinner dress on your honeymoon. Your new hubs will definitely appreciate all the skin showing 😉
