ok bees… I am a little on the edge here and maybe need reassurance. I have a dress that I love but I’m little worried it’s not bridal enough. My theme/colors are vintage/rustic with colors like coral/peach/burlap/lace. I have noticed alot of women wear these tyes of bridal gowns for beach weddings and I worry that its not going to be bridal enough for a church wedding.
Here is my dress! don’t pay attn to the models hair. I think it ruins the picture
I do plan to dress it up with a statement necklace (if it makes any difference)

If it’s a conservative church, you might want to wear a shrug to add a bit more coverage, but it’s certainly bridal enough, and I don’t see any potential problems with it other than that. It’s definitely a wedding dress!

Yeah, it’s lovely, just check with your church whether they have any rules about bare shoulders/strapless gowns. It varies from church to church, a lot depends on the priest or pastor.

I think it’s absolutely gorgeous! I would consider adding a shrug/cardigan/whatever for the ceremony portion and then removing it during the reception if your church has problems with strapless or is more conservative.

Erm… It’s a wedding dress. How could it be more bridal?

Thank you all so very much!! I am getting married at a catholic church. I’m waiting for a response about strapless
@SpecialSundae: My worries was that it was going to look more like a cocktail dress. I see many bees on here with big ruffle/tule dresses and I look back at mine and its not as big and poofy.
@LizLemon: You are just too cute! love your dress and it looks like everyone had such a good time!

@ThunderStruck: It doesn’t even slightly look about a cocktail dress. It looks like an elegant wedding dress.

A bride’s dress doesn’t have to be big and poofy! It’s beautiful and if you love it, then have no worries!

I think that dress is gorgeous! If you’re concerned about it not being conservative enough for a church wedding, perhaps you could order a very light, delicate, lace bolero for the ceremony. I’ve seen some positively gorgeous ones in other bees’ pics!

@ThunderStruck: I think as long as your boobs aren’t on display, it’s totally appropriate for a church wedding! Beautiful dress!
