Allo! I’m new here, so please feel free to redirect me if needed. 🙂
My partner and I are a planning an evening wedding in May. She’s wearing a custom men’s suit tailored to fit her right and I’ve just bought an ivory lacey mini. I’m in need of opinions because I’m suddenly worried it could seem tacky?
Our wedding is a super eclectic, artsy restaurant. We have a fairly youthful guest list and a pretty liberal crowd. I’m very visibly tattooed, and we definitely won’t be asking our wedding party to hide their tattoos/piercings/stretched ears/whatever. My partner is butch, I’m not, but I am not a girly-girl who has dreamt of a fairy-princess wedding. I’m also short (5’2″!) and can’t imagine wearing a long gown.
Please let me know what you think, or some ideas of how to keep it tasteful! THANK YOU!!!
Here’s the dress:

Are you curvy in the boob area? That model is maybe a B cup, and its pretty low and scandalous – but I’m a really femme lesbian who’s almost too femme to function, and I don’t like putting my chest on display like that.
Depending on your shoes, you could wear a cardigan, it would add color and also make it more casual. If my shoes were like “fun!” type, then i’d do a cardigan.
Or, if you are planning on doing a white/more neutral coloured shoe, you could have a small bolero made, and then wear a birdcage veil. It would look really vintage.

Love it! I think it’s perfect for the kind of wedding you’re planning. I’m with jacinda10 — it would be low cut for my comfort. If you like how it looks on you, then rock it!

Wow! That dress is awesome. I’m gonna go out in left field and say that if you are really arty and funky you could go with a leather jacket over the dress in either white or your wedding colors to add some punch, it sounds weird but could look really cool if you want something to cover up with.

I think that dress fits what you are describing perfectly! It’s young but still romantic and elegant! Congratulations!

That’s gorgeous! It’d actually be something I would consider for my own reception dress. Definitely keep it.

I think the way it’s styled on the model is classy, but I agree with the neckline being very low. If you have as much as or more cleavage than the model, I might put in a little sheer panel or something. It’s really pretty and I think it looks bridal.
