@ccantics:  I love the Emerson, and I totally think it fits with your theme. The patterning and details on the dress strike me as very deco to me. I think it’s better to have a touch of vintage style, but staying with a modern silhouette, rather than going all-out flapper-style and running the risk of looking like you’re going to a fancy dress party.

You could add a 20s-style veil or bejewelled hair accessory?

I actually think your dress is perfect for your theme. Besides, a flapper type dress would be so… expected.

I actually think it’s very art deco. You could completely dress it up with vintage style accessories such as a forehead band or bandeau veil, and statement makeup 🙂

Like the other posters, I agree that your dress is perfect for the wedding theme you have in mind. I *love* the Emerson dress, by the way.

I think the pattern looks very Art Deco as well. You could get a flapper style headpiece to wear – that would look awesome. I really love the dress!!

My dress is a fairly simple lace sheath and our wedding is outdoor, festive, not fancy – so I think it fits well.

You could add long strands of pearls and a 20s style headband or veil.

I think this is a very important factor to keep in mind when choosing a dress! I was deciding between two dresses, but one looked more like “red carpet” and mine matched the venue better…

@ccantics:  I am in LOVE with your dress!  I think it’ll be perfect for your theme.

I am also starting to worry about my decision.  Fiance and I are having a “Weddingmoon” and we wanted something low-key and no-fuss since it will just be the two of us.  I orginally had a short dress in mind or even something colored, but I went and fell in love with a fun ruffled ballgown.  I’m pairing it with non-traditional accessories so it will still be less formal than it could be, but it totally doesn’t match our original vision lol.  BUT, you know what?  I love the dress, I look great in it, and it’s me.  And I’m going to rock it!

That dress is 100% perfect for your theme!  I tried it on because I adored it (and also am going for a Gatsby-ish garden party) and it wasn’t for me.  But really, I don’t think you could ask for a better match!

I think the dress is perfect. You could make it even more with makeup and hair, shoes etc….

Maybe I’m crazy, but I actually think it fits your theme perfectly!
