@peonyinlove:  If ballerina style is what you are going for, that is a good choice.

I am honestly not a fan at all ad don’t see much in it that I like personally (it’s poofy and doesn’t really give off a mature woman vibe), BUT if it is what YOU like, that is all that matters…as long as you are comfortable.

@peonyinlove:  I think it’s BEAUTIFUL!  And my unsolicited opinion?  I didn’t do a reception dress…but I think that they should be less “bridal” than your bridal gown.  I’m no fashion expert, but that’s always been my thought.  If it looks like a bridal gown, why change in the first place?  Anyway, my point is, I would totally go for the pale blush pink rather than ivory so it stands out. 🙂  It’s so gorgeous!

I don’t like the dress in general, and if you are wearing your hair in a ballerina type bun it could look very costumey.

I fear that it will come across as a costume.

I think it looks like ballerina recital outfit.  I’m usually one for non-traditional but this doesn’t cut it for me.

@peonyinlove:  Maybe if it was white…and the skirt toned down a little, like taking a layer of tulle out.  It could look very high-fashion.

@peonyinlove:  I’m glad you found my comment so hilarious.  Clearly the photo you posted was from a fashion show.  What I meant was that if you tailored the dress it could look very high-fasion on you as your wedding reception dress. Sorry if I was not clear.  Good luck planning.

To me, it’s one of those dresses that I would look back on in 10 years and say “what was I thinking?”

But you’re the only one that has to love it!

I like the overall design! I’d personally want it a little longer… But that’s the nature of haute coture!
