khuddles :  I LOVE that dress. I think it fits you perfectly and looks gorgeous on that gorgeous figure of yours (sorry if that sounded weird lol)

All that matters is if you love it <3

I think it’s beautiful!! But matronly isn’t going to be the problem – in fact the opposite might be the problem. The shape of the cups and the very skinny straps and the satin (?) give it a bit of a lingerie feel to me, at least from the front. From my experience, it’s hard to please people with a sheath to start with – many people want a bit more va-va-voom, if you know what I mean. 

But despite it looking a bit more like a slip, it really is gorgeous. I’m certainly not reeling in my chair in horror! But that’s a perspective I see, anyway 🙂 You definitely have the figure to pull it off. If you love it, WEAR IT!

khuddles :  the dress itself is really pretty, i think it just needs a fur shrug or something, something on your shoulders in the color if the beading

I agree that it’s pretty but I also kind of get a lingerie vibe. I think it’s the combo of the sheath silhouette and the spaghetti straps.

khuddles :  I think it’s beautiful! I don’t get the lingerie vibe from this gown. When I think of lingerie, I think of see-through lace and form-fitting satin. This reminds me of something you’d see on the red carpet, only in white. It complements your your gorgeous figure.

I find it very pretty but what anyone else thinks about it doesn’t matter. All that matters is that you love it!

Is it cold where you live in December? It looks more like a summer dress to me.

I actually think it’s really pretty. I feel like you’re supposed to feel your best in your wedding dress. Also, people always offer their opinions through their own filters. If YOU feel beautiful in it that’s what counts. Choose the dress you feel most confident in. Confidence itself is beautiful!

I think it’s stunning bee! The sparkles and silver embroidery look very christmassy. I get the feeling that maybe your photos aren’t really doing it justice so maybe that’s why people have seemed meh about it?

It’s a little nightgown-y for me personally.

Maybe if you had a shrug over it?

I agree with megm that the shape of the cups, fabric, and spaghetti straps give me a very lingerie vibe.  The beading helps it from going into full-on negligee territory, but my guess is their hesitation is likely due to the lingerie vibe of the dress.

Doesn’t mean it isn’t a pretty dress generally speaking, just that sometimes people have certain visions in their head of what is bridal.  

But it really doesn’t matter what they like.  All that matters is you like it and feel good in it.

Definitely not matronly.  

It’s a little too reminiscent of very expensive lingerie for my taste.  It looks like a fabulous golden age of Hollywood sort of nightgown.  The beading is beautiful, though.

First, I think the dress is gorgeous and looks amazing on you!

Second, I attended a wedding this past weekend where the bride looked stunning.  Seriously, she was beautiful and was just glowing….in a dress that I didn’t particularly like.  And you know what?  It doens’t matter!  Yeah, the dress wasn’t my taste and I wasn’t too fond of it, BUT I just can’t stop thinking about how happy and beautiful the bride looked!

Not matronly at all, my first thought was this dress is very sexy. I agree with the bees who say it’s almost like old hollywood lingerie, which is ok- I mean, so many brides love Pnina Tornai.
