Ok bees, I need your opinion. I will be 25 when I get married and my ceremony will be in a garden patio and the reception will be in a hotel. I have finally found THE dress. I am wearing Allure 8856. I absolutely Love this gown. Do you think it might be a little too matronly for my age and does it fit my venue?? Your honest opinions please. Thanks ladies!

@jsrt2012: I’m not sure anyone could call that dress “matronly”!

That is NOT matronly! And it definitely fits your venue.
I worried about the same thing (the matronly part) and initially ignored all lace dresses while I was shopping and ended up with an allover lace Casablanca…

GORGEOUS Dress !!
Don’t know how you could describe that as matronly …
Last time I looked “matrons” were far more dowdy, and there sure as heck wasn’t any clevage going on !!!

That dress definitely isnt matronly! I can see where your coming from tho. I thought I would like a lace dress, there are so many beautiful dresses but no matter what I felt matronly in them. Did you try it on??

Not matronly at all!! It is a gorgeous dress, I saw it in person (I didn’t try it on because I don’t have the body to pull it off) but it is even better in person. I am also 25 and I will be wearing a lace gown.

I actually know what you mean. I’m 27 and tried on a few pretty lace dresses but they definitely had an older feel. I’m not really into the vintage trend either, so I didn’t want to go in that direction. Some of the lace ones were really beautiful, but I ended up getting a silk dress with no lace and it is much more “me”.
I should add, I don’t think that dress looks matronly, I’m just talking about lace in general!
