- Wedding: February 2015 - Casa Feliz
(Please excuse my weird facial expressions! I’m awkward like that.) So I ordered this online for some engagement photos but when I tried on the dress I immediately fell in love with it. It’s so flowy and comfortable, and I think it looks so romantic and boho. Our wedding has quite a few romantic elements in it, such as poetry, watercolor art decor, a blush, rose gold, and greys palette, lanterns for centerpieces, and my lace, low-back wedding dress (Mori Lee 2605, to be exact). I’m not having second thoughts about my wedding dress or anything, but I do want to somehow incorporate this dress in the wedding…am I being crazy? Do you think it really should get that sort of spotlight? It’s pretty, but I don’t know others will think it’s pretty enough to wear on my wedding day. And I know it comes down to what I think and what I want to wear ultimately, but I’d still like other people’s opinions. We’ve put a lot of effort and money into making this wedding a formal event, and I wouldn’t want to walk out in something that takes away from that. I was thinking of possibly changing into it for the reception, or at least just for some portraits. Please share your honest opinions.<br /><br /><br />

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 😉
