I think it’s hard for us to know, it looks really pretty. If the church has any guidelines, hopefully they have told you what they are. I have a letter from the church listing the guidelines my wedding dress will need to adhere to.

I think it’s beautiful! I don’t think it’s at all inappropriate for a church wedding- but I guess it all depends on how conservative your church happens to be. If the deep V is making you self-conscious, you could have a minor alteration to raise it up a bit. But I think it’s lovely as-is!

scatthecat :  I think it’s gorgeous. You’ll have to ask about the V, but you could always wear a lacy strapless bra thing under it or have a temporary lace swatch added for the day of.

Very cute, but definitely not something you’d be allowed to wear at my relatives church! They’re Roman Catholic though (and in a small town in Spain, to boot) so.. pretty conservative.  Your shoulders alone would get you kicked out, nevermind that V, lol!

I love that dress though. If the church OKs it I’d totally go for it.

Love it. I think with a short dress a pair of beautiful shoes is essential.

I would pop a message by the church and ask them to have a look and see what they think. In my church I would have to wear a cover if I wore that but yours might not care 🙂 Its beautiful by the way!

Lovely but a little skimpy for church. I would personally look for a pretty white cardigan to wear with it that can be reused as part of an office work wardrobe.

It would be totally fine at my church.
