I personally don’t care for it either. I agree it seems very Medieval/Renaissance and just a bit…blah. I don’t know. The backstory is nice, but is it right for the dress of your lifetime?

sevinsky2b: I love that dress. I have always been a fan of the Alfred Angelo dresses. I think once its fitted on you it will be lovely.

Honestly, it looks like it’s from the 90s. And not flattering on you.

I think it looks really dated and it’s not my personal taste.
Regardless of what anyone thinks about it, if you do not feel amazing in it then it’s not your dress. Don’t get the dress just becuase if the sentiment behind your future Mother-In-Law saving the dress and your mom liking it, you will probably end up with dress regret. Find a dress that you feel amazing in and that you don’t want to take off – that’s how you know.

I think it is such a nice story.. But i do not think it looks good on you at all.

sevinsky2b: ahh my friend wore that dress for her wedding in 2013! Only the trim detail was a blue/green colour. It was very elegant.

sevinsky2b: I think the dress is beautiful and that it has a great meaning behind it. With that being said, you need to be 100% happy with the dress you are wearing and know that it is the one.

The embroidered bust reminds me of my prom dress (in 1998). I like the thought behind it, but I think you would look better in something else.

In all honesty I think the style looks dated.

It obviously needs to be altered, and then it will look better. It’s not my style, I’m not a fan of sleeveless dresses, however I wouldn’t worry about it looking dated. All dresses will date, and all styles will come back into fashion eventually. I think the biggest peroblem is that the dress is currently too big for you and doesn’t flatter your figure, but alterations will sort that out. I think the sentiment behind that dress is worth much more than getting something “on trend” right now, that will look dated in 10 years anyway.

I like it! This dress is an older style, but it’s a refreshing change-up from the strapless lace/beaded mermaids with sweetheart necklines I see on almost every other bride these days. Once altered I think you will look amazing.

sevinsky2b: I find it a little bit dated with the emboidery? The shape could be really pretty on you if it were altered.

It looks dated to me as well, which in fairness could be part of why your mother and Future Mother-In-Law like it. I noticed brides from a different generation (as well as MOBs) can prefer this look. It looks a little prom-y. However maybe you can salvage it with some updates to the style. If you like the cream paneling in the back, maybe use that as a train to another dress? So you can still have some of the back story there. Or maybe another of her dresses will be more current?
