We’re having a Prohibition themed wedding and I managed to fall in love with the Wtoo Emerson. We’re getting married in gardens and then having a clear top tent reception.
I love my dress (which I dont have any pictures of me in) but have always lusted after a plain sheath dress.
I really think the part of me that is regretful is that I don’t think it fits our theme. It doesn’t look “art deco” or “Gatsby”. Can I accesorize it to fit? How would I do this? Or do you think I should go with a “reception dress” that fits the theme and is more flapper like.
This is the dress.

@ccantics: Love your dress! You should not regret it at all, its gorgeous.
Our wedding theme is rustic/country in the fall. I chose a lace dress. I think it fits what I’m going for.

@ccantics: Whaaat I think your dress fits the theme perfectly! And it’s absolutely gorgeous and timeless, so I think even looking back 20 years everyone will love it and not see a trendy dress.

@ccantics: I think your dress is gorgeous as is. But maybe a blingy belt would spice things up for you. The belt on my dress I loved in the stock photo but when I tried the dress on I felt it was really kind of lacking. So I bought a blingy belt to wear instead. Here is what I picked out:

I think it fits perfectly! (BTW I LOVE YOUR DRESS!!) Just get some makeup closer to that era, and some art deco style earrings, necklace/or/bracelet and you will be spot on!

The Emerson is perfect. I tried it on also. It is beautiful.

Nope. I’m having a Princess Bride themed wedding and I’m wearing a ballgown. Doesn’t match in the slightest.
If you like your dress, keep it.

@ccantics: i think its perfect. the detailing looks very art deco to me and you could accessorize it to futher develop the theme if you wanted. fantastic choice! (i’m biased because i chose watters too, the palm springs).

So beautiful!! I love the dress 🙂 We’re having a Gatsby garden party theme, and I think that dress would fit perfectly!

@ccantics: with all that stitching I think it definitely is art deco!
I love it with your theme and I would definitely keep it!
No dress regret needed…
just maybe a blusher veil or a cool headpiece or some lace gloves to add some of the theme!

No, your dress is not ALL OUT art deco. But I think the details on the dress + the shape definitely has an art deco flair. You did an awesome job!
I’m doing a kind of vintage/shabby chic theme, but again not ALL OUT vintage/shabby chic. The main way I tied my dress into my theme is with my pearl and crystal sash, accessories, and jewelery. I will be using pearls in my wedding decor as well.

I think it’s perfect, honestly – you want thematic, not costumey, and there are some great elements to your dress that really refer to the 20s. The first is the second layer – it mimics a drop waist while still allowing you to have a feminine shape. Evocative, but modern. Second, the pattern on the dress Deco geometrical patterns. Picture that in mirror and cobalt, and you’ve got some serious deco on your hands. The white on white + the lace cross patterns softens and romanticizes it.
If you want to play it up a little more, I’d add some mirror finish bling, a 20s hairstyle with a band, and a shawl with fringe. I think it’s honestly the most perfect dress!
