Hey Future Mrs!
How important is it for your dress to match your theme or compliment your venue. I’m planning a very contemporary, untraditional wedding. The ceremony and reception will be in a raw loft space downtown. I literally want my reception to feel like New Years Eve (big party…fancy clothes!) I’m asking because I found a dress I love but I’m not sure if it fits in with my vision. Let me know what you gals think. Also feel free to post pictures of gowns you think will fit my theme. Thanks Ladies!!

That’s exactly the kind of dress I was picturing as I was reading your ‘vision’…

I don’t usually care for that style of dress but I think it is gorgeous and will fit your vision perfectly!

I think your dress is an excellent choice!
If you were looking for other suggestions – and if your budget could extend to her – Hayley Paige springs to mind as someone who designs contemporary, fashion-foward designs. Here are some examples:
Tara Keely is a cheaper version of the same label:
Essense designs/Stella York
As you can probably tell, I associate “contemporary” with tight fitting dresses, lots of texture in the skirt, maybe asymmetrical features, bling and patterns – or alternatively something fairly minimal – but not a lot of lace or big skirts.

Normally I wouldn’t think of lace as contemporary but the design on your Allure gown is so unique I think it is more a modern take on lace. Usually when I think contemporary I think something sleek and with clean lines but I think the allure has a unique artistic design.
