I think it’s gorgeous! I don’t even know if I would call that a “ball gown” – I was expecting something huge, but this shape suits you well. What makes you feel funny about it? Did you try on any other silhouettes?

Prettysmile40:  when we all look back years from now on our wedding photos, all of our dresses will be “out”  hehe so I say wear what ever you feel most beautiful in because that’s what matters.

It looks great on you. Definitely need a petticoat under it though. Who cares what anyone thinks anyway, do what you feel great in. To add in…who says ball gowns are out? If they were, designers would not keep making them…and they are!

I think you ought to take a look at the latest celebrity weddings.  Jessica Simpson was in a ball gown and she wasn’t the only one.  Kim K was in the minority in a mermaid.

I tried on that dress!  I loved it, but it was a bit heavy and too formal for my  wedding. I love it though.

Ball gowns will basically never go out of style, and if they somehow do go out of style, don’t worry, they’ll be in style again before long. That’s just how fashion works, really. It goes in cycles. 

If you like ball gowns, get a ball gown. 

Almost every style of bridal gown is fashionable right now, anyway. There aren’t many styles that are truly passé.

I felt uncomfortable in this beautiful, huge, poofy tulle ball gown by Lazaro. I didn’t end up going with it because I just felt too “Princess-y” and “little girl”. But that’s just me. I still see lots of ball gowns at weddings and if that’s the style you want, go for it! Who cares what other people wear. Stye is individual.

It looks very nice on you. If you want it, you should get it! Sometimes it’s nice to buck the trend :).

If it feels weird, don’t wear it! Get something you’re thrilled about and feel amazing in.

This style of dress is never “out”. It is a classic, beautiful style that IMO will date far, far better than many of the “in” styles right now.

I don’t even think your gown is really all that “ball gowny”, or poufy. It’s very pretty, though! Wear what you love.

This looks like an A Line dress rather than a ball gown. 

Remember that even if you wore the most popular style, people might still have negative opinions of it. 

I think your dress looks great on you. A pettiocat would probably help it look better.

I don’t like poufy gowns so I wore a mermaid when I got married. For my vow renewal, I am wearing a poufy gown because I know that is what my mother and my aunts would like to see me in. It isn’t my style but this vow renewal is partly for my parents so I am thinking of what they want too.
