I would like it with a modesty panel- then I would say it looks great 🙂 !

Congrats!!

Echoing most of the others, the lingerie look is not a good one, but the shape of the dress is awesome. A modesty panel and BAM! It is a beautiful dress.

siennabrown215 :  what a find! I don’t generally mind exposed boning but agree with pp that it looks a little too much here, maybe because they’re so bright white against the soft lace against flesh. That’s the only thing I would change (possibly not with modesty panel but have the white boning changed to flesh tone boning so you can see boning seams but they don’t stand out as much).

Great find, I would get the bodice lined because I am not a fan of the see through corset trend.

I agree what a great find and is beautiful! I definantly think you should stick with this one and a just add something inderneith! You look beautiful.. I’ve seen your other fotos and this looks great especially for the price you can do so many other things with the money saved. I agree with the hoop as well. I too found a bargain for my dress at 460$ for a mermaid dress and she gave me the hoop for free as she said it’s very nessesary to get the full look!

That dress is gorgeous! I think the bodice is absolutely fine for a beach wedding! If it was in a church maybe not, but even then I think because the dress isn’t tight fitting everywhere else that it isn’t too “sexy”. That is an awesome find!

This is a beautiful dress! Make sure that when you have your wedding that your photographer fluffs out the dress during your location photos! 😀
