    Oh my god – gorgeous!

    For something to be dated I think there have to be so many people wearing that particular style at one time that it becomes associated with that era. And to be honest, I have never seen a dress like that, so I can’t see how it’s suddenly going to get so mega-popular that everyone’s going to think “2010s”.

    The first pic I saw (the one of the model walking the catwalk) I thought “eh, it’s pretty but I don’t like the bustier look”. And then I saw the pics of the bride. And I love it!!! The beading reminds me of snowflakes. And if you ask me, there is something so romantic and timeless about snowflakes. I think it’s a beautiful dress and the more and more I look at it, the more I fall in love with it!

    God, that dress is so beautiful. The silhouette is very 1950s and ladylike so it definitely doesn’t evoke the 80s to me. But are they sequins or beads? They look like tiny seed beads to me. I think if it was entirely sequinned then I would be concerned about the effect being too trendy or glitzy, but the beads are just so much more glamorous and substantial. If you are getting it made, definitely go with beads (or more beading and a dash of sequins).

    Also, to make it more timeless I would tweak the internal corset. The way it is now, it has that slight lingerie look with the exposed boning. If you want it more classic, I would make sure the bodice doesn’t have any of those elements.

    The pictures of it on the bride are absolutely stunning.

    I don’t think it would look dated – not as much as others of this time, because it’s just so different.

    That said, if you become too focussed on it being ‘timeless’ you may end up choosing something you don’t like as much out of fear.

    Part of the fun of looking back at wedding dresses is looking at the dresses and how they compare to current trends!

    I imaging 20s style looked old fashioned at one point, and now it’s back in style!

    Go for what you love. This dress really is beautiful. I love the sparkles.

    @justjade:  I absolutely love it! And it’ll be perfect timing if you’re getting married just after Christmas! If you love it, then go for it ๐Ÿ™‚ it doesn’t matter if the style goes out of date. All that matters is when you look back at the photos you smile and remember how the dress made you think of snowflakes and Christmas ๐Ÿ™‚ congratulations and good luck planning the rest of your big day!

    I love the sparkles!! But I am very biased because it’s very similar to my dress ๐Ÿ™‚

    I’m not a fashion expert but I don’t think it will date. If it does, it wouldn’t be the sparkles, but maybe the illusion neckline and “sleeves”.

    By The Way that’s the same dress Mandy Moore wore to the Oscars!

    Oh, I love it! It looks so much better on a real brides vs. a catwalk model.

    I love it.  I do believe its trendy.  But trends are cyclical, especially bridal fashion.  This was trendy before, it went out, now its back and it will go and return again, just like other styles.  I wouldnt worry about it because regardless it is totally gorgeous.

    I think it’s beautiful!! But I also love anything that sparkles ๐Ÿ˜‰

    Here’s the thing that I tell every bride who worries her dress is “trendy”…you are wearing the dress now. You will be thankful you got the dress you love now instead of going with something else out of fear that it might look dated. I can say this with confidence as my dress is sometimes considered “trendy” lol. Besides, the only dresses that are “timeless” are simple white ballgowns or a-line dresses (IMO)

    It’s so beautiful!! I just absolutely love sleeves, I love the sheer chest and arms and the gradual increase of beading from the top down. Stunningly gorgeous.
