I am absolutely loving this dress and although I haven’t planned to spend so much on a gown, there are always ways to cut corners and splurge elsewhere right? 🙂
My question to you is if money weren’t an issue, and if it weren’t a Monique Lhuillier, would you be attracted to this particular dress or if you saw a bride wearing it would you say “OMG what is she thinking?!? Please give me your honest opinions.

If you have the money, then do what makes you happy! Because that dress is going to be in ALL your wedding photos. and you don’t want to think back “I wish I bought that Monique Lhuillier instead”
Oh and if I saw the bride wearing that dress I would be envious haha honestly wishing I could afford such a beautiful work of art.

@MissJitterbug: I think it’s a beautifully made dress, but it is definitely a “statement” dress which means not everyone will love it, which you should probably accept. There is no dress that EVERYONE will like.
But to answer your question more specifically, I think that if you feel you carry the dress well- if youve tried it on and you love yourself in it then YES get it!!

I would definitely be of the camp “OMG What was she thinking?!” To me it looks like an upside-down, bleached Bigbird 🙁 But I tend to be a bit more traditional/classic.

It’s beautiful, but there are lots of designers who make dresses similar to this for MUCH less money! Alfred Angelo makes one that looks very close that I know of for sure.

It’s not at all my style, but neither are many dresses I see here or in real life! It’s all about what YOU want, not what others will think. You’ll never, ever be able to please everyone. 🙂 Also, I can’t imagine spending tons of cash on my wedding dress. Maybe if I won the lottery I’d go wild, but otherwise I personally think it’s a poor ‘investment’. But that’s just ME!!!
If you like this style, there’s MANY other designers making gowns similar to this for much less.

Honestly? I think it’s awful. I would never wear that and if I saw someone wearing it I would definitely say “what on earth??” Think about how you (and your future children and grandchildren) will feel when you look back at your wedding album and see yourself in that. In my opinion, you will have the same sorts of feelings that many brides from the 80s have when they look back at the huge, poofy sleeved atrocities that were fashionable back then.
You wanted my honesty 🙂

I would not personally wear it, so i guess the answer would be “No” I wouldn’t buy it. BUT, on someone else, I would love this dress. It is a work of art

I friggen LOVE this dress and find it stunning, but… there have been lots of variations done of it that are probably less expensive, so if you’re not a stickler for the tag saying Monique Lhuillier, you could go that route maybe?
Eta: unless you don’t care about the $ in which case I say go for it. It’s very “montreal” now that I see you’re from there I am even more in the group of “buy it”

Depends on how it looks on ME. If it looks FAB on me and I had the money heck yeah I’ll buy it.
If I didn’t have the money I’ll try to find it used cheaper or a similar design from another designer.
