    @sbharkness83: me too!

    BUT…if you added some simple embellishments, it may look more suitable for a wedding…then again – it’s YOUR day! do as YOU please 🙂

    To answer your question yes you can if you want to,  But personally I woun’t in a million years.  It’s way to boring for me.

    Can a bride wear this dress? Yes, as others have said, a bride can wear anything.

    But to answer your subsequent question–does it look bridal?–I’d say not particularly. 2 things I’d change, to make it more bridal-looking:

    1) Fitted sleeves–the baggy sleeves make it look informal and sort of utilitarian

    2) Different material–I can’t tell what it is from the picture, but it looks like heavy cotton–again giving it a more utilitarian than bridal feel. I’d go for something lacy or silky, at least in the sleeves, to get that bridal effect.

    @annatwistle: I can easily ask if this is a temple dress, ’cause my FI’s family is Mormon.  🙂  My Fi is still, technically, a part of the church, he just doesn’t go.

    There are a lot of very pretty long sleeved gowns with no trains available, you just have to keep looking.  🙂

    Personally, it looks WAY too much like the Temple dresses and choir robes and not very “bridal” to me.  Sleeves are making a come-back because of Kate marrying Prince William, so your choices SHOULD be greater, now. 

    If this is what you want, wear it and love it.  Otherwise, keep looking.  Go visit a couple salons and try on lots of gowns (call around and ask if they have gowns with sleeves before going!).

    It kind of looks like a robe to be honest, sorry.  I would say no.

    p.s.: I think sleeves are coming back, actually (kate middleton effect?!) so there should be lots of options out there for you.

    Where the masses all say “Wear what you want”, I tend to agree that it doesn’t look like a wedding gown. It’s simple, but it looks more like a ceremonial robe then a wedding dress.

    Of course you can wear this, I mean it has “bride” stamped on the picture!

    Wear whatever you want, it’s your day!
