I agree with a PP’s suggestion of shortening slightly.  This is what I wore to our civil ceremony & I’m only 5’2″.  Just showing the part where your calf kind of goes ‘in’ can make your leg look a little longer.

I think you dress is super cute! Your bust looks amazing with that neckline. That being said, I think the dress looks better on you in that second picture without the petticoat. I also don’t care for the shoes in the first picture. They seem too heavy I guess. I think your bad day was just making you feel bad in your dress πŸ™‚

i think it’s a great dress, but i think it’s better without a petticoat, and i also think that the shoes that you were wearing in the second picture look much better. i’m also not totally sold on the veil you are wearing in the top pictures. so in short–great dress, i think it’s a lovely and unique choice, i just think it might take a little more work to find the right shoes/accesories to complement it.

If I were not having a church/ballroom wedding, I would totally snap up that Trashy Diva dress! I may look into it for the rehearsal, or something.

YOU look fabulous in it! So turn that frown upside down, get some seamed stockings and rock that retro vibe!

I had to come look at your dress πŸ™‚ I love it on you! I think I like it a bit better without the petticoat and with more bridal shoes. You look gorgeous and unique!

I like the dress, but the shoes and veil do not go!

If you do change the dress and want to keep it simple, maybe have something like these dresses that owuld go with your veil.

I think the dress looks better in the second photo partially because of the shoes and also the lack of a petticoat. The strap across cuts your leg, while the pumps look elegant and modern. The petticoat makes the dress appear fuller at the hips, while without you look slim and lovely.

Gorgeous dress. I love the bust detailing, and the length is great on you! Good luck figuring out how you would like to style it. Also, sometimes we jsut have off days where we don’t feel great about ourselves to begin with. I tried on my dress on one of those days and was freaking out. A few days later, (with better underwear) I was fine.

@CakeyP:  LOL I’ve been admiring this dress on ModCloth for MONTHS.  I think it looks amazing on you.  I would do a different veil and shoes, certainly.  If you want to use the veil, get your mom’s permission to cut it up and take it to a seamstress.  The seamstress can find ways to use the material from the veil on your dress.

I had a similar issue. I ordered a non traditional dress I bought on modcloth planning to elope in it, and later changed my mind deciding it was all wrong for me. I still have it in my closet, but I wound up buying another (non traditional) dress that I wore on my wedding day, that I was really fond of. Don’t feel obligated to stick with it if you feel it isn’t right for you just because you have it already. Especially if it wasn’t a buy that broke the bank.
