I don’t care for hi-lo hems (you either love ’em or hate ’em I guess) but you’re not dressing for me. You’re not even dressing for your sister or Maid/Matron of Honor. You’re dressing for yourself, so wear whatever the hell you want–and seriously you’re going to look amazing with bright pumps.

For people saying it will look ‘dated’–yeah, and so does every other wedding that’s ever happened or will happen. I’m sure lacey trumpet dresses are eventually going to go the same way as the mutton-sleeved gowns of the ’80s and ’90s. Everything is going to be passé ten years in the future. Seriously, look at weddings from 2006–they don’t look like they happened yesterday. Half the point of documenting the day is to capture that moment in time, not trying to ensure that stylistic choices will be chic forever after. Wear the dress you love because you will look awesome.

It is beautiful OMG!!  It’s unique too!  I was looking for a Hi Lo hemline like that too but ended up getting something else.  If you love it, get it!!

It’s a gorgeous dress but to me it is funky as a wedding dress. I don’t mean that as an insult. I don’t know how they meant it but I would describe it as funky or different but not in an insulting way.

I love it, personally. Rock it, girl! The most important thing is that YOU love it and feel confident in it.

It’s definitely a pretty dress! I love the top of it/neckline a lot! The high/low hem isn’t my style, but it’s still very pretty, mostly classic, & pretty traditional. I wouldn’t have ever thought of or used the term “funky”.  They might not be meaning it to be mean. Maybe they just don’t have the right adjective for fhe high/low hem? Just ask them what they mean by funky!

Not a fan of the highlow hemline on a wedding dress.

soontobemissescavey:  I adore high low hems. They make women with good calves look A-Mazing! I would say it’s funky as a complement! So cute, bridal but fresh and fun. I think it’s perfect!

I absolutely adore this dress on you! No matter what dress you choose, not everyone will like it. And that’s perfectly ok! Everyone has different tastes, and the only thing that matters is that you absolutely love it! I’m sure even people who perfer traditional styles won’t be able to deny how stunning you look as you’re smiling down the aisle!

To mee the hemline togther with the high neck line looks a bit unbalanced. I’d make it a sweetheart neckline, or go full length. 🙂

soontobemissescavey:  I think it’s funky in a good way and I love it.  The frightening pumpkin bun on top of the model’s head is distracting me from the dress but if I cover her head with my finger I love it 10x more.  Post when you pick your shoes because I bet they’ll be awesome 🙂

Traditionally, I’m not a fan of high low hemlines.  HOWEVER, this dress is stunning and I think you should go for it.  You have to pick the dress that you feel is the right dress for you.  Not what others say.  (caveat being if you have church rules and you’re showing way too much skin or something)  

It is absolutely beautiful, and it is unique.  So many dresses end up looking the same (white strapless) but this shows personality and your soon to be husband is marrying you for your unique personality.  Not everyone could pull this dress off…but you do!  I say yes!!!  It’s beautiful.

Do you LOVE the dress? Do you feel like a million bucks in this dress? Can you picture yourself marrying the man of your dreams in this dress? You are the one who is going to be wearing it, not your sister! This is YOUR dress!!!

I love it! However, it makes me think back to my moms wedding pictures. Big puffy 80’s shoulders, mounds of satin, lace, and toule (and hairspray lol). She looks so ridiculous even she can’t look at the pic without laughing. That was the style then though! I would personally go for something a little more classic and timeless only for that reason. But it’s not my wedding! It’s yours. And if you love it, go for it! It’s a beautiful and fun dress. It would also be a great reception dress if you were considering two dresses.
