Honestly not a fan. That dress looks more suitable for a high side slit IMO

Maybe a subtle high low, but I don’t care for something that drastic

emersoks:  You could have a slit made in the folds on one side. It would be discreet enough for the ceremony if you don’t take large steps.

I think adding a high low would butcher that beautiful dress.  A slit might work well, or change into a little party dress for the reception to show off them gams. ;P  Keep in mind I’m not a fan of your second pic… at all, so my tastes are obviously different.

I don’t love high-low dresses as a matter of personal taste. What about getting your dream gown and then changing into a shorter cocktail dress for a portion of the night? You can wear your gown as long as you’d like. Or you can always get the dress you love and invest in sexy lingerie for later that night. Best of both worlds. 😀

I would do a slit – seeing a flash of leg every now and then is much more alluring in my opinion than high-low dresses. But I really don’t like high-low dresses so I’m biased in that regard.

I don’t think it’s that classy looking tbh.  the second dress almost looks like a clubbing outfit.

Not a fan. High-low dresses are trendy now…it’s always better to pick a timeless dress so when you look back at pictures in 20 years you don’t think “omg I can’t believe I wore that!” If you really want to show off your legs, consider getting a short going away dress after the reception!

Your fiance can see your legs later that night 😉

I love your dress as is. I think changing it to a high low would make it look super dated in a few years. Plus it would cost money. But it’s your dress! If you LOVE high-lows, this is your one chance to do something bold with fashion that is totally you! So I guess if your heart is REALLY set on it… But I just think that dress looks so much better as is. Do you have a picture of it on you?

I really think that material wouldn’t even be pretty as a high low dress. What if you just made it a short dress and got a really long cathedral veil. I feel like that would look better than a high low. But I love the idea of a subtle side slit best.

emersoks:  I’m curious, have you tried Khalessi on yet? She was my #1 obsession as well until I tried her on and it just didn’t work for my body (ended up with HP Keaton – true love!). I think a slit would maybe be ok in the dress, but maybe what u should really go for is a convertible dress- ie a shirt dress with a detachable long skirt so u can wear the short to your reception and show off your legs.

emersoks:  That is a gorgeous gown. How about asking for a detachable skirt where the dress skirt flare begins?

I think a slit would be more attractive and timeless. I think even though you’re on the shorter side it will be beautiful. PS that is a gorgeous dress that you like!!
