get any dress you love!.. I considered eloping and went dress shopping keeping in mind not to get a dress with buttons or corset back cause my Fiance would NOT be able to help me with it.. you know guys are just clueless! lols.. unless you have someone else (perhaps the MUA) help you out?..

I considered a Nicole Miller dress

I don’t think the dress is ‘too dressy’. Besides, it’s up to you. You won’t look silly. πŸ™‚


This is the dress I’ll be wearing to my City Hall wedding:

@aliciapdx:  wow. that dress is amazing and that would be lovely for a B&B or garden. I say go with that style! VERY CLASSY. I also don’t think there is a “too much” it’s your wedding day, guests or not, and you should feel and look the best you have EVER. Whatever you like, go for it. You only get married once! *cross fingers*

I think your gown choice looks magnificent! I’m also eloping and wearing a “real” wedding gown (Vera Wang’s Gemma) and we’re going the whole nine for the photographer, bouquet, tux, etc as well. Bottom line, this is your day! All that matters is how you and he feel! πŸ™‚ I’m sure you’ll look stunning in the photos and won’t think it was too dressy at all!

Your dress choice is beautiful.  Just because it is an elopement doesn’t mean you can’t wear a traditional wedding gown!  I am eloping as well (well people know we are doing it so I call it a destination wedding for 2).  I am wearing a traditional long gown.  Ours will be on an island on the beach, so just made sure to get something a little more light weight. I also don’t plan to do a veil, but maybe just some flowers in my hair.  This is your day to be a bride – when else are you going to get to wear a long white dress πŸ™‚  Congrats and best of luck!

@practicallyme:  I love this dress! I’m considering going short too. Or at least a shorter dress for the reception. Something like this :

from laceaffair.com

I’m obsessed with lace though so a long lace dress is possible as well.

PS @aliciapdx #1 is beautiful!

I love the dress you have picked out! I was going to go with a lace dress for my elopement, but decided to go more simple. Here is my dress.

@AlwaysSunny:  So have I! LOL This was one of my first picks, then I was all wishy-washy, but kept coming back to this one. It’s being phased out and only available online and the sizes are getting limited, so I ordered it on Friday and can’t wait until it comes! πŸ™‚
