    The dress looks very bridal to me, especially if you are wearing a veil. But really whatever dress you wear on your wedding day is bridal! It’s a gorgeous dress and you look great in it! Don’t second guess yourself ๐Ÿ™‚

    What do you think is missing? It looks bridal to me! I think it will look even more bridal with a veil and/or jewelry, your hair and makeup done, etc.

    I think it’s beautiful and very lovely on you!  I bet once you add a veil and any jewelry/accessories, you’ll see how much it looks bridal and classic!

    Your dress looks pretty bridal to me, and it is beautiful on you. I had the same concern over my dress, so I understand. With your hair professionally styles, accessories (especially if you wear a veil) I think you’ll look very bridal.

    michelka3:  yes it’s very bridal. Understated yes but still very bridal. As others have said, veil, accessories, bouquet (and your groom standing next to you!) makes it 100% bridal. Do not worry.

    Love it! Once you get alterations done, it will look great. Of course adding jewelry will help

    You look lovely! Just because it isn’t fancy doesn’t make it not-bridal.

    I had a similar dress and felt about the same months before the wedding. If it was “enough” for a wedding. Guess what, it was perfect. The day ended up being hot so I am was so happy to have something flowy and comfortable. Dancing was fun and the skirt movement looked great in pictures. I’m sure you will be about the same (hopefully without the heat). You will be comfortable on your day and look nothing short of gorgeously Classic in photos

    I feel ya I always think what if I didn’t get a “fancy” ball gown or poufy dress would I look bridal enough? But when I’m researching photos I realize once you have the hair, makeup, veil, jewelry and your hubby (the greatest accessory haha ) it will indeed look bridal!! 

    If you want you can always get those bling belts but I think it looks fine the way you have it. ๐Ÿ˜Š

    You will be a bride on your wedding day, and this will be the dress you are a bride in, so it is ‘bridal’ by default. Forget the notion that you have to have lace or frills or horsehair or beading or a cathedral train or any of that. Whatever you wear that you love and feel beautiful enough to get married in IS your own version of ‘bridal.’ But, side note, your dress is gorgeous. Total understated elegance done exactly right.

    michelka3:  That dress is stunning. I think you should go bigger with the veil and it will feel more bridal – something with a nice big train and some white flowers in your hair.
