Hi Bees! This is my first post but I’ve been lurking a lot since I got engaged. I need your opinions on this dress. I’ve been looking for a semi casual dress to wear and I really like this one, but is it TOO casual? Here is a photo of the dress and the venue. I was also thinking of wearing a sash or belt of some sort to make it look more bridal. Let me know what ya’ll think!

I think it’s definitely casual, but anything can be fancied up with hair and etc. If you like the way it looks on you, then go for it!

Eh. It’s really not something I would pick…it looks like a beach cover up to me.

sash would make it dressier, but I like it, where you getting married. I get a boho sheek feel from it. 😀

It looks floaty and boho. Perfect for your venue in my opinion & like pp said it can be prettied up with the right jewellery & a cute belt.

I really like it! I love the back. If casual is what you are going for it is perfect. Where are you getting married? Is it a casual wedding over all?

Thanks ladies! Yes, everything will be super casual. I ordered it and I’ll see what it looks like on me and if i hate it i’ll return it. It would be awesome if I end up loving it though, because it’s very inexpensive. Fingers crossed!

@katbarn: The back of that dress is very sexy! Might be a little too sexy…looks like one tug of that string and you’d be naked. I’m sure your groom would love it for that reason!
PS – I looooove that your ‘venue’ is a tree. 🙂

@katbarn: No way you could do a sash or belt with that back – it wouldn’t look right at all. Love a big chunky necklace like the pic, or a nice hairpiece.

If you want a sash I would alter the back so the straps come straight down and are attavhed to the dress..without the loops and bow.
I love the dress as is or with a sash for your venue!

@Sunshine09: you’re right I didnt even think about that. Ugh. I guess I’ll have to see what it looks like what it gets here.
