Just can’t find a dress that looks good with our venue. Definitely want to stay with a fuller bottom at least A line but closer to ball gown. The venue is a barn but it’s really beautifully set up and the ceremony site is in a field under a tree. I’ll add a few photos below. Anyone have any ideas?

Don’t make this more complicated than it needs to be. You can wear any dress you feel good wearing. Your venue by no means limits your choice.

Pick the dress you love, not one to match your venue.

Wear what you want! I had a gorgeous garden venue and still wore a ball gown.
I hate the idea of choosing a dress based on your venue.

Pick the dress you love. Feeling tied into the the atmosphere will really make the difference.

I can pretty much imagine any a-line or ballgown in that venue. Just pick what you like!

Thank you ladies. I’ve tried on a few but they just feel too fancy for the venue. Could just be in my head though of course.

In stead of a ball gown have you though I’d the shear fitted gown that have the detachable skirts, in a blush color. Look like a ball gown from the back?

I wouldn’t worry about the dress being “too fancy.” It’s your wedding! And the venue is beautiful.
FWIW, I wore an over-the-top dress, complete with a cathedral drop veil for my wedding. Our venue was some of DH’s family property, so it was for all intents and purposes, his grandma’s backyard. But whatever. I threw on some flip-flops and rocked my dress.

You are the bride. You are allowed to be as fancy as you want. Your venue is beautiful and an over the top dress won’t look out of place at all.

Your venue sounds like ours. I wore a Casablanca blue dress and we were married under a willow tree overlooking a stream. I wore an edwardian style headband with pearls and crystals and didn’t feel I was overdressed for my venue.
