Greetings everyone! New on Wedding Bee and hoping someone/some people can help me out here… Am in bit of trouble.
My mom mailed me my wedding dress (that we chose together in the U.S.) to Europe, where I now live.
We were really both happy about the look, and it’s truly gorgeous.
However, my mother in law (in Europe) booked a venue later on, that turned out to be FAR more, ahem, **rustic**, than expected, outdoor/indoor, when I saw the photos of the place!! I just couldn’t bring myself to say ‘no’, because apparently there were no other options close to where they live (sort of in the country).
Considering this, now I see that my wedding dress is wayyyy too formal and extremely fancy (super longggg train) for this venue.
Would it be too weird if I just wore the formal wedding dress for the church part (just me, my family, husband and his family) ?
And then switch into my old champagne silk long dress for the venue where everyone (guests ~50) will basically toast and eat together?
Here is a link to what it looks like (the old champagne dress I already have),
It’s more of this kind of color,
Or should I just purchase a totally new short (tea-length) wedding dress for the outdoors rustic venue?
(If so, would it really be that horrible of me that my parents spent $1500 on my wedding dress that I would only wear for the church part, and a totally different dress purchased by myself for the rustic outdoors venue?)
Many thanks in advance for your kind replies and help!
