Why not just wear the dress anyways and have the outdoor wedding? Seems like the easiest solution.

Crayfish beat me to it, but I was going to say the same thing.  Wear the dress you have and have an outdoor wedding!

I understand people wanting themes and all, but I’m having an outdoor ceremony in Savannah.  I’m trying to tie in all the southern-ness of Savannah, however, I don’t feel like my dress fits the “Savannah” theme (no lace, more fancy) but I’m wearing it anyway because I love.  I’d just wear the dress to the wedding, who cares if it doesn’t fit the “theme”!

Do you have photos of the dress you can show us?

What is the probelms with the dress?  Is it unweildly with a large train or something?  Can you post a photo?  I can’t see what about the dress would make your wedding now inappropriate for outside, and agree with the PPs that you should do what you originally wanted.

Can the dress be altered (bustled) in a manner that would assuage your fears of an outdoor ceremony/reception?

I guess I’m lost.  🙁  Is the problem that you think your dress is too fancy for a wedding in your backyard?  Sounds like you want/like both the dress and the backyard.  Why do they have to “match”?  I did get how you determined if a dress matches a venue or not

That’s normal. Everything will work out though.

@Toy: You’re only wearing it once and all wedding dresses get dirty the day of the wedding. I think we need to see a picture to understand the problem.

@Toy: I have to agree that now matter where you get married, the dress will touch either grass and dirt outside, or dirty floor inside (I used to be part of a bellydance group that would perform at a Greek restaurant every so often, and we dance barefoot.  You’d think a restaurant would have spotless floors, and to the eye they DID look clean, but each and every time our feet were black and we started bringing wet-wipes to clean out feet before putting on our shoes).

I think amost ANY traditional dress would be dragging a little (or a lot) on the ground – and don’t worry it would be ruined – I think you’re supposed to go get it dry cleaned and then put into some sort of plastic to preserve it anyway, and if they can’t handle a little dirt or even grass, they’re not a very good cleaners.

I still say see a seamstress about altering it just enough where you feel okay in it in ANY circumstance and have the wedding you want 🙂  Or wear higher shoes? 😛

just wear your train down for the ceremony, and bustle it afterwards. It’s going to get dirty no matter what/where…I imagine your want some pictures outside, etc. etc.—you’re going to walk outside eventually. Don’t scrap your entire vision because your dress, and I totally agree we need to see a picture of the dress to see if it really would look absurd for you to wear it to your outdoor wedding! Take a deep breath! It’s going to work out!
