    What do you love about this dress that the others are missing?

    Maybe we can help you find another dress to love just as much, but still fit your beach vision!

    I say go with what you love. You could even go without a crinoline underneath to cut out some of the fullness so it flows more as you walk. I don’t think it would look out of place on the beach. It isn’t like a huge ballgown covered in tulle and sparkly beading!! Go for it.

    I think it would look appropriate on the beach, it’s light and lacy, gorgeous!

    I think you should go with the one you love! It’s beautiful and if its “the one”, then its the one! If nothing else compares, then you won’t be completely happy with it.

    Although, if you are very concerned, keep trying dresses on that fit your requirements- all that can happen is you find nothing better and you stick with 1907 or you will find one that you like even more.


    good luck, let us know what you decide!

    My personal view on it is, you only get one shot at this and I think it should your little piece of perfection. When I said something about this at like 5-6 different bridal shops they said they have seen very formal, long trained heavy beaded dresses and upwards on the beaches so that made me look at things a lot different about it.

    The dress is gorgeous…but I think you should keep looking.  If I were you I’d be really concerned about being uncomfortable.  An outdoor wedding in Mexico is going to be really hot, even if it is in October.  I run hot, so maybe it’s just me, but I’d just be too concerned with being a sweaty mess on my wedding day.
