    I’m not sure how I feel about this gown.I love the details and especially the sheer lace top, but I don’t really like the two-toned look of this gown. I think it CAN look great but this is very stark, like a white blouse and champagne/gold skirt. I think it would look better if the warmer underlay continued through the bustier/corset. The skirt is also a little full for my liking, and the high neck reminds me of a scuba diving suit. I think with a few changes it would be gorgeous.

    @veragirl:  for a winter bride I think this gown would be amazing!!!

    one customization I might suggest is remove the collar and open up the neckline just a tad, with a solid fine line border instead of the elaborate border/collar as shown. 

    But other than that I think this is one of the more gorgeous gowns I’ve seen!

    Not a fan – because I tried a JA with a high lace neck and it itched and scratched like crazy! I tried some similar Pronovias ones and found that they weren’t so itchy.

    I tried this on and I was going to buy it. I was going to have them modify the collar. I didnt buy it because my wedding date changed from December to the beginning of September. I cant imagine wearing it in warm weather. It was beautiful though!

    @Sweetjennygirl:  My thoughts exactly.

    I’m not a fan of the turtle neck look. I bet it would look gorgeous on some bees though!
