Im getting married in my parents backyard in July and Im worried that my dress will look silly there. A ton of blogs Ive seen with garden/outdoor weddings the brides are wearing short dresses! Ah! I bought a tulle gown!!
Though our wedding is semii formal, Im still worried that people will think Ill look ridiculous. What should i do??

Ok, that is gorgeous. I think the flower details totally tie into the garden/backyard theme. Just relax and look fabulous!

If anyone is allowed to be over-the-top formal, it’s definitely the bride 😉

In my opinion the bride can NEVER be overdressed or too formal! You’re supposed to look spectacular! It’s your day! Your dress is gorgeous:)

I think it will be fabulous for backyard! I had lace and all that good stuff for my backyard type wedding and I loved it cause its like a fairy-tale amongst the yard and stars! Do whatever makes you feel confident and beautiful!!
The dress looks amazing and I really think its not toooo bridal. A bunch of taffeta and sequins twirled up in a mermaid maybe, but yours seems floral and airy with elegance!

I like it! I think the flowers are a little whimsical and totally work with a backyard wedding!

Thanks ladies. Not many brides have posted pictures in this dress so its hard for me to visualize it. I do love my dress and I think something satin-y would have been too over the top/clashed with the garden theme were going with.

Oh I think that dress would look great for an outdoor/garden wedding. I wouldnt worry about the “formal” look because I dont think a bride could ever be over formal for their own wedding. Even if you want a huge princess gown for your outdoor wedding GO FOR IT GIRL! 😀

@MsNarwhal: i was worried about the same thing with my dress, i felt like it was too fancy for my front yard reception. but then my maid of honor was like, “you’re the bride! you can look as fancy as you want on your wedding day!” lol.
i love your dress. i actually tried on something similar. i keep saying that if i ever have another wedding, i’d wear that dress, haha. so yeah, don’t sweat it. wear what you want 🙂
