bride2bee2020 :  Honestly I think it is gorgeous, im a bit bias because mine is somewhat similar mine has a deep  lower back and has a the bustier  look at the front but has the heavy beading as well, im getting married in a catholic church  honestly i dont think would be an issue yours is even more cover in the front thn mine. Looks elegant and fits you great

I love the dress! I’m a big fan of a very simple silhouette because I think dresses like that are very timeless. It’s beautiful.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!!!! I think it’s gorgeous and I don’t think you’ll regret it. The deep V may be a bit too much for church but you could make it work by adding a lace panel or closing it up a tad or even leaving it as is allowing the veil (if you wear one ) to cover it. Either way you have options and I guess it depends on your type of church/belief.

You are totally wearing the dress, it’s not wearing you. I think it’s perfect. If you are concerned about the back in a chyrch ceremony you could maybe see about attaching a sheer detachable cape for the ceremony that will give you some coverage without obscuring the detail totally.

Some churches are more fussy about these kind of things that others. I think it is fine. Personally, I wouldn’t even ask. I’d just wear it. I mean what are they going to do, tell you to take it off?

I see no problem at all especially if you are wearing a veil. That dress was made for you!

OMG, Bee!  The dress is stunning!  It has kind of an old Hollywood glam flavor to it.  I love it!

And, it suits your beautiful figure perfectly.

I think your dress is beautiful and timeless. However, for a church wedding I do find the back to be too reveling. I’d suggest a long cathedral veil during the church ceremony or even a temporary alteration to make the V less deep for church ceremony. But I’m pretty modest when it comes to church and what I wear. Some churches will have no problem with your dress. I suggest you talk to your priest or preacher to be sure

It’s beautiful and it still has a traditional element to it. Just vlose the V a little but, at least for the ceremony, and it will be perfect!
