@lkr736: I am having a wedding in an outdoor amphitheater and then the reception at a rustic yacht club on the water.

I am wearing a dropped waist, silk satin, A-line/ballgown with a draped skirt.

Maybe not the “perfect” combination of dress and venue, but it is MY dress and I love it.

Do you have pics of your dress? When I think ballgown with pickups, I am envisioning a very elaborate dress, which might not excatly go with your theme…but if it isn’t as elaborate, a certain type of ball gown can def fit in!

I was concerned, at first, about my dress fiting our outdoor wedding, but in reality, I think it fit in just perfecty.

Also, I have to give a shout out b/c my colors were green & white. Since our whole wedding was outdoors I wanted a very “natural” color palette, and white against the green grass and trees is so pretty. We also used incorporated a simple olive branch that tied in our “Country/Italian theme” as I called it 🙂

I’ve seen all types of dresses for outdoor weddings.  I’ve seen ballgowns on the beach, too.  This is the only time you will ever be able to wear a ballgown with pickups, so if you like the dress, go for it.

I think that dress will look beautiful in the venue you’re describing!  I’m getting married in a very outdoorsy venue too, and my dress has lace and beading and is A-line – fancier than I was expecting.  If you’re concerned about your dress looking too formal, maybe you can go a little looser with hair to balance it out.  But it will work, don’t worry!  Look at the girl in the picture… the dress is perfect in that naturey setting!
