Jenny Packham does similar silhouettes but not such a drastic interpretation. It comes down to your wedding vibe – for a church wedding this is completely inappropriate but on a beach with just your other half go for it! It’s a pretty extreme dress rhat would definitely have most people talking that’s for sure! Xx

I don’t think it is suitable for a wedding gown.. During your life there are plewnty of opportunities to flaunt your body by showing some skin and I don’t think your wedding day is the appropriate day to do so.  When I think bride I think elegance and beauty and that dress defenitely dosn’t bring those worlds to mind.

Gypsy_Heart:  No problem! I worked designer retail for years. I see why you like the dress, the lacework is so delicate and beautiful (reminds me of gossamer) and it’s very ethereal. I think you’ll find something with the characteristics that you like in something more flattering:)

I’m getting more of a night gown vibe than wedding dress.

It looks like a shapeless nightgown

Gypsy_Heart:  Hi! I think the dress unique and like others have said.. maybe with lining it would look less like lingerie. I could actually see it being really pretty with lining and maybe without the poncho affect.

It’s not my style because I do NOT have the body for this dress. But I just showed my Fiance and he said “It’s a see through squirrel suit!” Womp womp.

Oh man I’m all for doing whatever you want dress wise (the bottom of mines pink) but can’t stand this designer and this is prob one of her worse dresses, sorry! At least her other dresses try to pretend to be bridal gowns and usually are a flattering cut like some corsets and stuff. This just falls straight down from under the bust and quite frankly makes the super thin model look wide. Also probably about $8000 going by what I see on say yes to the dress. If you have that kind of budget, hot damn! You can get the most amazing dress on the planet. Sorry but for me this isn’t it !

Gypsy_Heart:  I’d wear it on my wedding night, but not at my wedding, if you know what I mean.

The dresses just posted are much nicer than the previous… um, dress? Sorry, but totally not a fan. Totally a fan if you wearing it after the wedding for your new husband though! Wink and all that stuff.
