    I don’t think “dated” is the right word, but this style of dress isn’t my favorite.

    I think that looks beautiful but then again I’m not a fan of most of the modern dresses and I’m wearing my mom’s from 1974 lol.  I think its classic and elegant and feels like a wedding dress unlike most of the dresses today which just look like really nice white strapless dresses to me.

    I think its slightly dated. I think of early 2000’s, definitely not 80’s. But its still a very beautiful dress.

    It isn’t that it looks dated. It just isn’t trendy… So in your pictures you won’t have to look back one day and say OMG what were we thinking with these crazy ruffle skirts… don’t get me wrong I love the ruffle skirts but I’m sure one day it will be out bubble sleeves… Now if you love the dress it shouldn’t matter what decade it walked out of.

    It’s a gorgeous dress and our opinion if it looks dated isn’t a factor if you love it go for it, it’s your day and what you wear is totally your choice. The dress is beautiful and in my opinion the beading makes it even better and it doesn’t look dated just to throw that in. Wink Love love love

    I’d say it’s more of a classic style rather than dated.

    @DaneLady:  when I think of 80s dresses, I think of gigantic poofy shoulders and an exorbitant amount of layers of tulle under the skirt.

    +1-80’s is shiney material, big pouffy sleeves and TONS of tulle.  Your dress is gorgeous.

    It’s very traditional, not dated 🙂

    It’s a very pretty dress on you.  Not exactly “dated” and definitely not 80s at all, but it doesn’t strike me as a newer design.  It’s more “elegant classic” rather than “traditional classic”…..does that make any sense?  It’s lovely on you.

    I agree, I think it’s classic — it might FEEL dated because like others said, it’s not trendy for the present time. But that does not mean dated. This style has been around forever and will be around for years to come — timeless.

    That said i do think the style of the bodice makes it look a bit more antiquated/less modern — but that is not a bad thing at all depending on what you’re going for!
