    It will be fine for a park/outdoor wedding! 


    I am planning on having an outdoor wedding, so I bought a white bridesmaid dress ($50, sheath-ishstyle) and had instant dress regret. I am adding a fuller skirt, making it tea length etc… basically turning it into my dream dress, not the one I “ought to wear.”


    The moral of that story is- if you don’t LOVE the dress, you will feel regret. And yes, you may get regret buying the “fancier” dress, but it will disapear whenever you putlit on. It is your WEDDING! You get one of these!! Buy a dress you love.

    I didn’t vote, but I say try it on and see if you love it as much in person before you write it off.  That does seem to suit a more urban, evening affair at a glance, but you may very well be able to make it work perfectly in your setting.

    That is a beautiful dress, and I think it would be perfectly fine with your venue! 🙂

    I think it’s fine for an outdoor wedding.  I ended up going fancier than I wanted once I tried things on and found one I loved.  I also think that even though the style of the dress is formal, the fact that there’s not much bling or shine to it makes it easier to fit in with a casual wedding.

    I actually think this is great for your theme…it really isnt TOOO fancy and crazy, it is formal and very bridal…but not bedazzled like mad. DO IT!

    I think it’s fine for your wedding.

    On another note, taffeta is not flowy. In fact, it’s quite stiff. If you want flowy, maybe tulle or organza would be better.

    I think that dress absolutely still works. I would consider it simple anyway because it’s not a blinged out big puffy ball gown, it’s just sleek and sophisticated.

    I say go for it! Maybe just keep the jewellery toned down a little and it feel more “laid back” as you said.  Congrats.
