I don’t think there is such thing as too fancy for a wedding! I think it is beautiful!

The dress is totally up to you! I think It’s Beautiful!

It doesn’t have to match with the formality of the rest of the wedding at all if it’s what you love! (just putting that out there)

That said… If you aren’t comfortable b/c You feel it’s too formal then it is to you.

When it comes to the dress is really is all about you, what you think, what you want out of it, and what  you want for it and the rest of the wedding.

I know I didn’t yay or nay you but I hope this still helps some with your deciding πŸ˜‰

My personal philosophy is that the bride can never be too formal for her own wedding:) Beautiful dress by the way!

No. In my view, the picture makes it more formal looking than it is in person.  I tried this dress on a few times (just this past weekend was the last time I tried it, right before I decided on my dress, which ended up being Allure 8815). 

So, this Casablanca dress made it into my top 5. I am having a July wedding in FL at 6pm outside in a garden, so it felt right for the location/climate–lacey, romantic–summery… but I didn’t pick it because it was a little too simple. Even though my ceremony is formal, the reception is inside the hall/ballroom of a historic bed and breakfast, so I wanted something with a little more bling and glamour, too.

NO WAY! That dress lookes beautiful on you and you can never have a too formal wedding dress! I’m having my wedding this August outdoors and believe me it gets HOT over here in fresno. I’ve decided on a gown really similar to yours and I’m going to wear it proudly. πŸ™‚ It’s your day!

Oh, and I should add that a major factor in choosing the Allure over this one is that the Casablance was several hundres dollars more expensive and wouldn’t arrive until just a few weeks before my wedding! So, with a different budget and different date, I might have made a different dress decision πŸ™‚

No! It’s your wedding gown and it can be as fancy as you want! When will you ever have the chance to be that dressed up again!That gown is breath taking!

Take me for example… I’m not getting married in a cathedral and everyone told me a cathedral length veil would look very silly at my hotel wedding but I really wanted one and I’ll never get to wear one again so i went with what I wanted.

Trust me you will look gorgeous and no one is going to say “the bride is too fancy” lol

:o)

Go with what you feel best in! I think a venue can accommodate any dress if it’s the one you love

First of all, the dress is beautiful! I had the same dilemma with my dress at first, but then realized there really is no such thing as too formal for a wedding and you should wear the dress you love the most.

i agree with the PPs – you can’t be too fancy, you are the bride and are supposed to stand out. and that is a GORGEOUS dress!
