Okay maybe this is ridiculous but I have a huge phobia of belly creases. Meaning creases across my midsection from sitting down. I see a LOT of gorgeous fabrics that I just know are going to crease horribly! What do you think of the fabric below? Looks like a crease threat to me!! But I LOVE this dress:
Also, I have a short torso. If the top part cuts on the wrong part, it won’t hit on the waist as it does on this gorgeous model, it’ll hit at the hips and will just look horrible. What’s my best bet aside from trying it on (which I can’t do)? Getting the measurements and seeing where it hits??
LASTLY, is this dress too formal for a restaurant wedding? We’re hoping (fingers crossed) to host our wedding at a great, michelin rated restaurant. I think it’s a elegant, beautiful space and even tho it’s top notch food, it’s still a relatively casual place. Here’s a pic of where the ceremony and reception will be held. Yes, that wall of the ceremony room is lined with wine bottles…

I think the dress is gorgeous and will suit your venue fine! I think it depends on how you dress it up! It’s quite BLING~ but it’s not puffy or over done so I think it’ll be lovely.
for the crease on the tummy… how about a corset or some sort of shapewear to ensure smooth~~ tum tum? 😀

Dress is gorgeous. Works great with venue. Belly creases…unless you use an all lace gown or something that is more “busy” in the middle, I don’t know if you can avoid it. All material wrinkles after sitting for awhile.

Omg I LOVE that dress and it works out perfectly with the venue!!
Wrinkles shminkles, by the time they happen everyone will be dancing and never notice!
Go for it 🙂

I LOVE it and I LOVE your venue! But I do agree that dress looks like it’s aching to wrinkle. However, I don’t think that should be a huge dealbreaker and that you should just enjoy it. Think about it- how much *are* you going to get to sit down in it? From what I’ve heard/seen, the bride ‘n groom are often just walking around talking to people and don’t really get to sit for long. I’ve even heard that some folks can’t even sit long enough to eat dinner! So I think that if you love it, just get it 🙂

You should be fine with a good form of shapewear …. gorgeous dress by the way 🙂

The dress is gorgeous but the model looks like she has a bit of a pooch. I think the best thing to do is try on this dress (Which is super stunning, btw) asap with your shapewear and keep it on as long as possible. Sneak some pictures and see for yourself if this will work with your body. My hangup was my arms at my wedding and everyone kept saying its in my head, but I don’t like the width of my arms. Oh, how I would trade my 15 inch around biceps for long, slender arms!!! I got a cover up, because I knew me: if I wasn’t comfortable with it, it would show on my face, I would be fretting, and afraid to let loose on the dance floor.
The bee is known for its honest opinions-Id love to see you in the dress! I adore your venue, it looks amazing and doesnt feel like a restaurant…very cool vibe to it!

This dress is gorgeous and so is your venue! Great match….I don’t at all think that the dress is “over the top” for this venue.
However, I think your suspicion of crease threats is bang on. Satin will definitely wrinkle from being seated a while, as will taffeta. I think the only way you can avoid wrinkles is to have a lacey dress or a dress with some kind of ruching or detail across that area. Having said that, I think you should choose the dress you love and try not to worry! 🙂

Lace and tulle will be the best at not showing any creasing, so if you are super concerned about that, I’d find a different dress, but this dress is gorgeous.

@fivemonthsnotice: Lol, the MODEL has a pooch! I know, I noticed as well and definitely thought the only way to get this dress would be to commit to the flattest stomach ever by next Oct. Good luck, I say! (to myself)
But the rest of you are right, the dress is gorgeous but it’s a wrinkle threat! I dont have anywhere to try it on unfortunately, I would have to order it blind which is a huuge risk. I’m glad you all like the venue!!! I hope to have it booked this week EEEEEK FINALLY

I LOVE that dress also, we just hosted a Jim Hjelm trunk show and had the gown in blush and it was so pretty! The fabric is actually farily “crease resistant” not to say it wouldn’t crease at all but it would be able to be tugged out and it fits so snug that the fabric will lay flat most of the time. I love your venue and think the dress would be perfect in that space. Congratulations!

@mrsSonthebeach: I was going to say the same. I think lace would hide the bunching well.

no matter what there will be bunching… I ended up with a rouched mermaid and no matter what undergarments I wear or whatever it bunches a bit when I walk because my legs lift the dress slightly… Everyone thinks im a crazy person because it bothered me A LOT at first. They did a few alterations to make it a bit better.. letting it out a ltitle to give my legs room towards where it mermaids out and pinning the pleats down so they dont move much… but regardless if it’s something YOU SEE i understand… you may want to go with a different style dress

What about this dress? Is it too romantic for this venue? I like the sleek look of the other one but I just can’t handle bunching and crease risk. I think this one is very unlikely to crease.
EDIT: I know, the two dresses couldn’t be anymore different! Is this second one sexy at all???
