Honestly, yes, to me it looks like a First Communion or flower girl dress. There are tons of simple, modest, wedding dresses that look more mature/sophisticated if that is the look you are going for.

It does remind me of a flower girl dress. I would keep looking.

Depends on what you look like in it. It could pass for a 50’s style dress easily. Loose the pink belt if you are worried about it looking juvenile.

edited to add: part of the problem is that rather hideous backdrop. It makes the dress look cheap. One would not spend hmdreds of dollars (usually) on a small child’s dress so the photo styling choices dont help this dress.

This style in more interesting fabric, and you wearing gloves and a birdcage veil, could be cool.

It looks like a flower girl dress to me, sorry. Maybe if didn’t have the pink belt? And I actually think longer sleeves would help it look more mature.

I actually love it. With the right bouquet, hair and makeup you’ll look beautiful and like a bride. I think the pink sash makes it look young. What about an organza sash with a little sparkle. Or maybe a sash with pearl details?

It’s do able without punk sash and long sleeves – check out princess Margaret’s dress. 

I did plain too so I see why it appeals. I do think there are more wow plain dresses though. 


Edited to to say I meant pink sash

I don’t see anything wrong with it! Except for the belt. Otherwise it looks really nice! And if you add sleeves -perfect! 👌🏻👌🏻


A really reaaally thin embellished belt would look really nice too. At least try one on 🙂 I am not much for unnessesary bling either, but I think a narrow belt with pearls or bling would look great with this dress! Or even tiny flowers.

that dress looks young. I’m sure the pink sash doesn’t help. 
Will you mostly be shopping online? Are you going to a store somewhere. Here are modest, classic looks for inspiration.
