    I think I tried that dress on (or one SUPER similar), and it was my number 2 pick. So no, I don’t think it’s dated. I think it’s beautiful 🙂

    The only part that makes me think “dated” is how obvious the ribbing is. It doesn’t specify a date though. It’s a lovely dress and looks timeless enough. If you like it, I think you’ll still love it in 20 years and not wonder what you were thinking.

    @NikkiKillpretty:  Yes, it’s incredibly 80s and some might say dated. But what’s wrong with that? It’s the dress you want and it’s very pretty so just go for it. One of the best things about wedding dresses is that there is no strict fashion rules for them. Sure there might be trends but generally wedding dresses that have fallen out of favour aren’t considered to be unfashionable in the way regular clothes might be.

    Who cares? Do you love it? Personally I think it’s much better than the dozens of strapless, ruffled cookie cutter gowns I see on here everyday. If you like it that’s all that matters.

    @NikkiKillpretty:  It’s definitely not 80s. It may not be “on trend” but the dresses that are will date very quickly in my opinion.

    Yours has classic details and styling and suits your figure. I was originally supposed to get married in 2010 and I’m glad we didn’t! The dress I had chosen had asymmetrical pleating and was a very popular dress that is still sold on the designers website. Now,not even 3 years later when I come across pics of it I think it looks dated. I’m definitely going for something classic next time I get to choose.

    It’s definitely not 80s-esque, but it isn’t exactly “trendy” now, either. I voted that it’s not dated. I have a wedding dress with pearl beading on the bust from the 50s.

    Hey, my dress was from 2005 and I got married 4 months ago. 

    It does seem early-mid 2000’s but that’s not a bad thing.  Yo udon’t always have to have the latest trends.  The top is beautiful!

    Honestly, yes I would say its dated. Not 80s though, more like late 90s/early 2000s. Obviously there are still people who love this style, and if you love it then it doesn’t matter, but for the sake of being honest I think it’s a bit dated.

    I don’t think it’s dated at all. In the end you are the bride it’s your choice, your day, your happiness so just ignore the haters and enjoy it 🙂

    @NikkiKillpretty:  This dress fits you nicely. The silhouette (sweetheart neckline, A-line skirt) is classic. There’s nothing dated to me about this.

    Now the fabric, I’m less in love with, but that’s partially my own personal taste. I’m not a fan of embroidered poly satin. But this embroiderly is pretty and is nicely placed on the skirt, so there’s that. I do think this fabic is something that was height of popularity a few years ago, now laces and chiffons are trendy, and if it heavy satin, it’s often ruched.

    @NurseMandie:  +1. This dress does not scream 80s to me!

    I definitely think it’s traditional, but not dated! When eighties wedding dresses pop into my head I think of big, poofy sleeves and brides with awkward perms. I’m not a big fan of the boning showing on the bodice, but that’s just my personal taste. 

    All that matters is what you think of it! You obviously love your dress, so screw what everyone else thinks!

    I’m so surprised how many people voted that it looked dated!

    I saw the photo and my immediate reaction was “No, as if!”. I’m not sure how such a classic ballgown/a-line silhouette could be dated. It doesn’t really have anything super trendy going on like puffy sleeves or giant ruffles or bows, and I LOVE all the beading..

    But then again I am no fashionista. As long as you love it, don’t worry about looking dated. My gown was soooooooo un-classic and will probably look dated by next year but I still love it to pieces
