It looks like a seamstress could take the neckline down a bit if that’s what you’re worried about… Is there a sheer portion around the top that could be cut out? That would be super simple.  If you want something a little more interesting, you could probably get that neckline cut into a v-neck without much effort.  I don’t think the dress is matronly, I think you just need a few very minor adjustments to feel better 🙂

It’s a gorgeous dress, but I see what you are saying about the neckline.  No, it doesn’t make you look old, but I think it would look even better with a lower neckline. I agree with riley23–I don’t see that being a problem for a seamstress.  There’s always a chance the dress shop might not do it.  If they don’t, go to a private seamstress.

Leibonix:  I certainly don’t think it makes you look old, but can see what you’re talking about with the neckline. It seems like something a seamstress could easily take down though and turn it into something you want! I think a sweetheart would look stunning on you. 🙂

Leibonix:  How much time until your wedding?  I say, keep looking if time allows!  There is a LOT out there to accomodate your needs from the start!  Depending how much you want to do to the neckline, it may compromise the entire shape of the dress.  Too much altering makes me nervous, personally!

On the upside, it does look beautiful on you as is!  Very classic!

I do think it is a more “mature” looking dress. Still gorgeous, though! And when you are all styled up, it will probably look different. As PPs said, look into altering the neckline a bit 🙂

Leibonix:  I think it ages you to be honest and think if you have enough time you should continue looking for something else.  Liking the lace on you though!

what are you guys talking about? the dress is not old looking, it is vintage and with the right hair do and makeup, it will look amazing. you don’t need a sweatheart neckline to be attractive. I think ita a pretty dress. It has a vinage glam feel and once you are done up I think you will love it. try it on with full makeup and hair; i bet it will change your mind.

I think it looks lovely too.  I see nothing wrong with a wedding dress that is pretty and vintage inspired.  It also seems to me that the pendulum is swinging away from the uber sexy bride and back to a more demure look.  You are just ahead of the pack.

I was 28 when I got married and I had a higher neckline on my dress too!  I think honestly it takes a sophisticated confident woman to pull off a higher neckline and risk not being see as “sexy” (when in reality having a high neckline or not has nothing to do with being sexy).  I absolutely adore your dress and think it’s so romantic!

Here’s mine:

I think your dress is beautiful, and I think it looks beautiful on you! Personally, I like the high neckline, but I agree with PPs who said that a seamstress should be able to adjust the neckline to be a bit lower. (I’m also a fan of sweetheart necklines, but those might be out of style now. I got married several years ago — LOL!)
