So, I just ordered my (2nd) wedding dress yesterday. (the first was bought 4 days after the proposal in post-proposal excitement and makes me look horrid. Plus, it does not match my wedding at all).
My wedding is black & white with touches of Tiffany Blue. It is very classy & elegant. I wanted to look like a vintage movie star.
My older sister (MOH) was not with my yesterday when we found/ordered my new dress. My parents & little sister were all there & loved the dress. I texted pictures to my Maid/Matron of Honor, Future Mother-In-Law & Future Sister-In-Law. The rest of them loved it, but my MOHsister did not. She was actually kinda rude & said the dress looked bad on my hips (which she knows that I hate). She has been talked to by my parents about needing to be a supportive Maid/Matron of Honor (since I was for her), but it makes me worry about the dress. Probably because I had already bought the wrong dress once, I was REALLY worried about ordering the wrong dress again & am starting to second guess this dress.
My mom says she doesn’t like my dress because 1. She is SUPER modest/prude (like wanted a turtleneck/long sleeves/long pants swimsuit) & doesn’t like that it is a sweetheart. 2. She doesn’t want to see her little sister look like this. and 3. It’s not her style & she cannot seperate her style from what I would want.
So, what do you think, is this dress too revealing (it is a church wedding)? Too tight? Or is my sis just being unsupportive?
The dress is Mori Lee 1818 (in case you are curious)

I think you are a knockout in that dress. It is stunning on you, and makes your figure look fantastic. I don’t know about your church’s modesty standards, but I can see that some places might warrant a bolero or shawl of some sort over the shoulders for the ceremony. Regardless, love your dress!!!

Oh my gosh, no! You look fantastic! And you’re hips are curvy in a gorgeous, vintage starlet way, not in an unflattering way at all! I would just ignore your sister, she probably is just having difficulties seeing you get married :/.

@MsATC: Thank you! Our church doesn’t have any rules towards that. I’ve seen plenty of brides in similar dresses, plus my veil does cover my shoulders. My sis is the one with the modesty issue.
@jo.leeL Thank you, too! That’s exactly what I want! It’s just weird because my sis is pushing for an engagement party & already planning a bridal shower, so I thought she was fine with me getting married.

Beautiful dress, looks lovely on you. I do think it is kind of clingy and revealing for a church wedding, though. The veil does go over your shoulders, but it’s very sheer and pretty much the same amount of skin is still showing, veil or no veil. Depends on your church, maybe it doesn’t matter, but if you are wondering if it might be too much – then it might be too much.

Thank you all! You are making me feel SO much better!
@KCKnd2 This was a sample dress that was 2 sizes too small. The top won’t be anywhere NEAR this revealing (more like a modified sweetheart than a real sweetheart). (I would not show that much chest in church). Also, in the pics the veil looks super sheer, but in person it does cover more. Plus, I will be getting a shawl (basically a piece of fabric) with it to wear at church if I want.

I think if you’re going for vintage/movie star glam you NAILED IT with that dress!

You know, certain aspects of that dress would be things I wouldnt have picked for my style either, but I love EVERY single thing about that dress!!!!!! I would normally not pick that particular silhouette for myself but you make me want to try that on!! Lol.
Bottom line you look gorgeous, that dress is amazing, and at a certain point your Maid/Matron of Honor needs to let it go.
