mrslaljeetobe :  No straps but when I was reading your post I was worried until I saw the photos and I definitely don’t think you look “hoed” out. It looks like a wedding dress, do you maybe want to buy a tulle overskirt for the ceremony? That might make you less self concious and would look more traditional and then for the reception you can take it off and party in your form-fitted dress.

Damn that’s harsh…..

you look freaking fantastic! 

I do like it with the extra lace though.

And I like the straps.

Dont stress. You made a great choice.

mrslaljeetobe :  For what it’s worth I think you wear the dress beautifully, I could never fit into something like that so I’m jealous. 

However, I agree with others in that the placement of the nude sheath covering is…off. If you are going for traditional this is definitetly not it. Could you consider wearing this as a ‘reception’ dress and find a more covered (in the crotch area) one off the rack? 

As I mentioned it looks beautiful on you but it is a bit risque and you might have tongues wagging. Either way if you are in love with it, then wear it. As I suggested try it as your party dress and find a more demure one for the ceremony if you can swing it. Keep us posted 🙂

mrslaljeetobe :  it totally looks like a wedding dress. I didn’t think it was sheer for a moment – but maybe that’s because champagne Lined dresses are so common right now that I assumed there was lining. All that said, I don’t think it’s a particularly beautiful dress. To me, it looks unfinished? Like it’s missing lace, or the designer ran out of lace. And the lace that’s there looks,…cheap. It doesn’t look expensive. Sorry bee. But if you love the dress that’s all that really matters.

Even with the proposed alterations, the bottom of the dress is still a little too weird to me. Maybe it will be better received by others in your social circle.

mrslaljeetobe :  I didn’t read any of the other Bees replies. Only so I don’t get swayed with my own honest opinion. And sorry if my rpely is a repitition of other Bees replies. 

I think it looks like lingerie. It’s oh so sheer. Especially right in the centre, down there. Yep, that bit. Are you having a Church wedding? Regardless, I’d reconsider and try finding somethine else.

Hard no to the straps! Makes it look like lingerie!!! Looks less like lingerie without straps. Definitely add the lace. I still think the dress is not cohesive and looks like two dresses smushed together but at least you won’t be getting stares at your hoo-ha lol!

The bees here are so dramatic. Women enough. The dress is darling it doesn’t reveal anything except how banging her body is. Wear your outstaning dress AS IS  no extra lace to be more traditional. And without straps and go knock your husbands (and every male guest there) socks off sis! ♥

Sheesh, forget the dress, Im drooling over THAT VEIL!!!!!

 

seriously – the dress is very original and unusual. i would not say it is traditional at all.if you have a church wedding they may not allow it because it is quite bare at the top.

i agree with comments that the bottom half looks like you wet yourself. it is a very odd position of the lace. i suggest you get some lace and very easily extend the lace downward from the waist over the crotch to the lace below. Or you could do something different with lace applique. dont stress, it is easily fixed.

I think you look smoking and super sexy! Your body is on point and the dress goes perfectly with that. The nude coloring is very in right now! If you love it who cares what other people think. Comments come from places of jealousy sometimes especially when you look that good in a dress. I like no straps it shows off your tattoos. I can’t believe some of the comments on here, but then I look at the people they are coming from. You look absolutely gorgeous….don’t second guess it

Your body is fabulous and you look beautiful. I think filling that gap with extra lace is a perfect and easy solution to the one problem. Do that and then go with confidence! You have plenty of time, you know what to do now, it will be just fine. I like with and without straps, or you could make then detachable and have it both ways.

mayamiyazono :  THANK YOU for saying it! I completely agree and I can’t believe that the people here would really tell someone to go out and buy another dress just because they don’t like it!!! 

OP- your dress really is beautiful and unique. Dare to be different. Your dress is not like everyone else’s. Take a look at what everyone else is wearing to their wedding. I’m sure you saw  hundreds of dresses like theirs while you were dress shopping and you chose to wear something different! Please DO NOT go out and buy another dress! Yours is beautiful!

How can we shame a woman who is wearing an ivory/nude colored dress with lace, long tulle train, and a beautiful veil by telling her that she looks trashy and untraditional but other girls can wear black, florals, prom dresses, pants, etc. and we give them a “you go girl!”??? It’s because you look SEXY and some people don’t know how to react to this. They equate this with promiscuous or something inappropriate… You can be sexy on your wedding day. 

my advice- do the lace modification if it makes you feel better because now the Bees have  turned something as simple as a lace pattern into an uncomfortable conversation about your crotch. Then delete your post or otherwise mentally block all the crap these people have spewed telling you to go out and buy a different dress. 

Yoi are beautiful and so is your dress. Don’t be ashamed of your body.

I am disgusted by the lingerie comments here. Has no one seen a bustier style top on a wedding dress before? Take a crash course on fashion or pick up a magazine, or take a vacation from your small towns and see that there is more than solid ivory sheet lace fit and flare with sweetheart neck, a belt and fingertip veil out there. 

RANT OVER.

I have never been to a wedding and thought negatively of what the bride wore. As a guest I’m always so overwhelmed by the happiness and love I feel for the couple in that moment. None of your guests will think anything of your dress. They’ll be mesmerized by your smile and the look of your groom’s face. That will overshadow any opinions on your dress. If you love it, go for it. It’s your day, and no one else’s. Enjoy!

frillsandthrills :  Ermm I have no problem with her looking sexy, she has a gorgeous body and should rock it, but I honestly thought I was seeing her bush through the “nude” area. It’s possible it’s just the lighting, but that’s just not something I personally would want my grandmother thinking at my wedding. I think the additional lace would fix that a bit.

I would also be a little concerned if they’re having a very traditional wedding (which to me generally means a church), that this dress would be allowed.
