    I love them… I didn’t want to, but when I went dress shopping it’s the most flattering and beautiful I felt in every dress I put on.

     

    I’m totally wearing Aspen by Maggie Sottero

    Personally, I like them very much. As someone who looks great in a peplos, I wanted very much to find one but ended up going the more conventionally unconventional route.

    Anyhoo, I think this dress and others like it are gorgeous, and if this dress sings to you, then don’t worry about it being informal. I’m sure that whatever you pick, you’re going to look like a million bucks 🙂

    I love them – I tried on some but ultimately went with something else.  I especially like one shoulder grecian dresses.

    I actually love this style, but it is not flattering on me. I think with the right body shape though, it’s gorgeous!

    I like the one posted by prettylizy but the one in the first pic I’m not so sure…. kind of reminds me of a nightgown….. (a very sexy one of course)

    I like greek goddess style dresses, but not a fan of empire waists in general…

    LOVE them!  I actually wore a Maggie very similar to what prettylizy posted, the Maggie Sottero Ireland.  One of the best things about this style of dress is that they tend to be flattering on everyone because of the empire waist and relaxed skirt.  Also, a lot of them are made out of super lightweight material, which makes wearing the dress all night really comfortable.  Plus, I got a ton of compliments on how unique my gown was!

    I love them!  I don’t know if mine really counts, but this is the one I went with:

    Agree with hellohellohello, I love prettylizy’s gown, but not the first posted pic. Not very flattering and kinda has an “expecting mother” look IMO. But we all have different tastes which is why there are sooo many different styles out there, and every bride should wear what she feels most beautiful in.

    I like them!  I think it totally depends on your venue and the formalness of the wedding!  I had a friend who wore a beautiful dress that had kindof a grecian goddess type look.  It was perfect for her personality and perfect for their backyard wedding.  Personally, I love them, but ultimately went with something more traditional.
