YEs! That location looks absolutely beautiful– I am so jealous of your wedding now!

I think it would be cute! Personally, I would want to get something a little more bridal, probably still short though. But from what you said your Fiance is going to be wearing, and the fact that you said you never really wanted the traditional ball gown, I think it will work out beautifully 🙂

These are closer to what I would look for. But whatever you feel fits you is the best!

That dress looks perfect for you and your wedding vision! And if you feel comfortable and beautiful in it, then that’s all that matters. 🙂

Yes, it’s what you want! It’s very similar to what I changed into on my wedding night. We, too, went to dinner. There was 12 of us.

Love your concept! If you haven’t bought the dress yet I recommend checking out Macy’s. I was doing a random search earlier today and they have a lot of short white stuff right now with very reasonable prices.

Just select the white color boxe from the menu on the left.

What size are you?  I have a casual white summer dress that would maybe work for you that has a little bit extra in the detailing.  I wore it for my private wedding ceremony and it’s been drycleaned and hanging ever since.  It’s a size 6.  Let me know if you’re interested!

It sounds perfect to me! I love eyelet dresses, especially for summery/woodsy feels! The only thing is that I don’t know how it looks on you, but in the picture it looks a little on the short side for a bride.

ETA: to me it looks like it only goes mid thigh because it’s empire waisted, I think around the knees would be good, which it might be, just cant tell.
