If you are eloping and/or having a small beach wedding it could be ok but for any other type of ceremony I wouldn’t.  Maybe you could wear it as a reception dress.

If you really don’t care what anyone (mom, grandma, etc) thinks, I guess go for it. 

Personally, this looks like something you wear on your wedding night. Alone. With your new husband. It’s beautiful, but not to be wed in.

If you like the simple, slip-like dresses, there are other great options that are a little less…revealing. (And less expensive! Pnina dresses are outrageously priced!)

Like this BHLDN dress http://www.bhldn.com/shop-the-bride-wedding-dresses/briar-rose-gown/productoptionids/fbcaeb8b-b90b-4e9a-9313-32da085940dd

Gypsy_Heart:  I think what you might be responding to is the drama of the dress.  It’s got this show stopping appeal.

I’m sure you can find something that’s a little less boudoire that encompasses that same effect.

Gypsy_Heart:  It does nothing for me. It’s not even exciting, considering it’s a Pnina. I think it looks like something you’d wear over a bathing suit, but I’m sure it’ll cost you a few grand to purchase. Plus, unless you are that tall and slim, I doubt it would be flattering as it has not shape whatsoever.

Honest opinion?  It looks like a white slutty bat costume.  Private ceremony at Temptation resort?  Sure.  Traditional wedding with your parents/aunts/uncles/siblings present?  No.  Your brother doesn’t want to see his sister wearing that.

sorry 🙁 I definitely don’t like it. I definitely think you could go risky and still choose something that is deemed more appropriate.  This looks like a nightgown to me, especially with the way the arms are.

Eh, I hate to crush your spirit but it looks like weird lingerie.  Kind of like a white bat, also.  I vite nay, but if you like it…I think you can do better though imho

Not my style. Aside from being too revealing, I don’t think the fabric or silhouette will be flattering on many, if any, body types. I agree with PP, it kind of reminds me of a swimsuit cover-up. But if you’re not one to care what other’s think about your fashion choices, rock out.

Gypsy_Heart:  No. It’s awful. You can be sexy without basically wearing nothing.
