    @Mrs_P:  yes, i think people could view it as shapeless and while yes you can wear ANY dress in any kind of wedding.  The dress you picked is something that comes to mind when you say your having a casual beach wedding. I think it’d fit perfectly with your wedding =D  and I think you look great in it too.

    I think it’s perfect for the beach! Light and airy!

    You could always get a different sexier reception dress to change into =)

    I personally think it’s gorgeous! especially for a beach wedding! I don’t think it is shapeless, it does look a bit loose around the top though. Is there any way you could have it altered to be a little tighter? that might get the shape you are looking for.

    @Mrs_P:  I think it is very pretty,  but does look a little shapeless.  Could you go to a seamstress and just see if they could pull the bodice in a bit? I think that would help! other wise it is very pretty and very fitting for a beach wedding 🙂

    I do think it looks very pretty and prefect for your venue though I agree with @lolita39:  that the top looks a bit loose or something to me, just seems like maybe it needs to be fitted better with alterations.

    It’s a beautiful dress and sounds like a great fit for your wedding – but take it to a good seamstress and see if you can get it tailored just a little bit to fit you better. It will make a WORLD of difference 🙂

    It’s gorgeous!

    I agree it looks a little loose, but i think once that is fixed it’ll give you the shape you want. It’s perfect for the beach, soft and flowy but still sexy =)

    @Mrs_P:  Looking at this and the pictures you posted before, it’s pretty clear that the only issue is that it’s a little bit big for you. Any good seamstress will be able to take it in, despite the beading, it just takes a little extra work. I think it’s going to be perfect for a beach wedding!

    I think its gorgeous and I think you’re going to get beautiful pictures out of it.  I also LOVE the back of the dress.  I think you picked good.

    It also looks like it could benefit from being pulled up a bit. It looks like the embellishment is hitting too low, but if you just had it altered so that it stays up a bit better, I think it will give you the look you want.

    I definitely would not scrap it and find something new!

    It’s a beautiful dress.  Remember that almost all dresses need to be altered even if they’re in your size.  Everyone’s built differently.  Find a good seamstress and she’ll be able to fit it like a glove.

    @Mrs_P:  That dress is not shapeless at all, it looks very very nice on you.  Well suited to your venue.  It’s soft, feminine, sweet & sexy at once, the kind of dress a guy would love.  It could stand to be taken in, but it’s not screaming that it needs it either.  If it’s an issue I would try smooshing my boobs up with the nu-bra trick, maybe that would make a similar illusion as taking it in.

    Don’t have a second thought about that dress!  You look like a dream!
