It’s wonderful that the dress has a special meaning to you. 🙂 I think it looks lovely on you!

I don’t think it’s very flattering on your figure.

I think the embroidery is lovely and it’s very elegant.  Obviously it will be altered to fit your figure a bit better.  I would suggest shorter laces on the corset portion – they look pretty raggedy that long. Maybe a wide, short bow would work better.  It’s a beautiful dress.

I do not care for the dress, at all. it may be a question of different tatstes but I think you can do so much better!

Honestly I hate it. Not flattering AT ALL. Fabric looks cheap. You have a killer figure, this does NOTHING For you. Sorry but you said honest opinions!!!! 😉

I agree that it’s wonderful that it has a special meaning, but how do you FEEL in it? Are you prepared to sacrifice that bridal feeling to please others?

If not, maybe you could create a custom dress using some features of the dresses your Future Mother-In-Law saved.

My honest opinion of it is that it doesn’t do your body justice (though alterations will help with that) and that it looks a lot like my prom dress.

sevinsky2b:  I think you look gorgeous in that dress. Once it is properly fitted, it will be stunning.

Navy, champagne and ivory will be a lovely palette.

And may I say what a thoughtful FDIL you are. Your Future Mother-In-Law will be thrilled.

I really like it! Once the wrinkles are out, and it’s fitted to you, it will be stunning!

I think it’s an elegant dress, but it’s WAY too big on you without being fitted, so it’s really hard to tell how flattering it will look after being taken in. I think you should go with your heart. So many brides get talked into the idea of a dress because of what someone ELSE’S feelings or intentions are – and I think for this day, it should be ALL you. If you love the dress, then wear it happily. If it doesn’t make you feel like the amazing princess ALL brides should feel like on their big day – keep shopping.

I really like it a lot. Especially the back. And I agree with @Julies1949, that color palette will be perfect!

It gives off a Medieval/Renaissance vibe to me… which I’m not a fan of (but hey, if I *did* like that kind of thing, then it’d be a homerun). If you do go for it, agree with PPs that you should seek some major alterations to make sure it fits you like a glove.

I personally don’t care for it. However, I love the back story and I think once you get it altered it will fit you much better.
