    I dont believe any dress is too fancy for the bride at her own wedding! It’s gorgeous and light and airy just like your backyard reception will be 🙂 To tone down my dress I’m thinking of going very relaxed on my jewelry details and my hair, maybe you could do the same?

    It looks good!  You’ll probably have it bustled while you’re dancing around and eating, so it won’t be as full then.  And for the ceremony part a fancy and full dress is plenty appropriate.

    it’s gorgeous. and i agree, no bride can be too dressed up for her own wedding! if you’re worried about it being too big, you can remove a few layers of crinoline.

    I was worried about the same thing. My dress has a 9ft train! In the end I was reminded that it is my day and the only day of my life I get to wear a dress like that. You look amazing in that dress. Enjoy it!

    Ok, I just have a message for the 1 person who voted that you will look ridiculous:

    You are silly, and not very nice. She is going to look ridiculously beautiful! 

    Now that I’ve said my peace with that one person who I do not agree with, I want to say that your dress is beautiful, and I think you should take a peek at blogs like 100 Layer Cake and Once Wed… they constantly have brides with fun, outdoor weddings who are wearing more formal dresses…. 

    As my Maid/Matron of Honor told me when I was dress shopping (as I, too, want a more laid back wedding) “You’re the bride. It’s ok for you to look more formal than everyone else.”

    First of all it looks amazing on you!  But. a word of caution.  Your wedding is in July in California.  I have no clue what the weather will be like but… I had a garden wedding and something that most brides don’t think about (not sure how b/c we think about everything! lol) is the weight and heat of the dress.

    It was 96 degrees for my outdoor ceremony with like a million % humidity.  I wore a light cotton J Crew dress and I was still sweating head to toe.  I was hot in some dresses I tried on in stores after 5 minutes!  Be aware!  I don’t want you to be uncomfortable in the dress outdoors b/c there will be nothing you can do to cool off besides go inside.  Just something to think about.  Material matters!
