    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.

    @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!
