I purchased my dress 2 months ago. Although it was nothing like what I had in mind I tried on a ton of dresses and it was my favorite I even had a teary moment in the mirror…now looking at the pictures I feel like I don’t look like a bride in it..it’s a beautiful gown but it doesn’t look like a wedding dress to me anymore. I’m kind of freaking out thinking about trying to sell it and buying a different dress.
Sorry if the pictures are too large.

It definitely looks like a wedding dress, and you definitely look like a bride. I’m not a fan of wedding dresses with a sheer bodice, but if that’s what you like it honestly looks great on you. It’s a very pretty dress.

I’m going to agree that the top of the gown doesn’t look bridal at all. What if you lined the bodice? Maybe that would make it feel more like a formal gown? You look beautiful in it, regardless.

To start, It’s stunning! however, im not a fan of sheer bodices, I think that’s prob what makes you feel it’s less “formal”, it is def more prom and less wedding because of that. im sure a tailor could put fabric under the lace and totally transform the dress. It looks great on you and is very elegant and regal sans the sheerness.

It’s a beautiful ” wedding dress” . Don’t sell it !!

I agree that I would prefer it with a lined bodice, but that’s only because I dislike showing that much skin, not because it doesn’t look great on you. A lining would make it more formal, and you wouldn’t lose all of the great detailing on the bodice that makes the dress really gorgeous.

Line the bodice if you want a more “traditional” look. It definitely screams “wedding” to me, even as it is.

Are you looking for words of advice from others who have gone through dress regret? I never fully had dress regret but I will tell you that being on here doesn’t help!!! You will always see other dresses that you think you will love. Remember you loved that dress for a reason. It fits you beautifully?
are you looking for validation? I don’t give that but like I said that silhouette looks gorgeous on you! I love the back. I don’t care for the top because it reminds me of bridal lingerie. However, I think once you are all done up on your big day you will be just fine!

I’d also line the bodice, but it definitely looks like a wedding dress.

I think the dress fits you beautifully and the dress itself is beautiful and you definitely look like a bride to me. Pesonally though, I would line the top part.
