Hi Ladies! I need opinions on this dress. I don’t have much to spend on a wedding dress and came across this for a really good deal but I am not sure if it really looks like a wedding dress. What do you all think? Could it pass off as a wedding dress for my big day?

Honestly, it looks like a prom dress (which is probably exactly what it is noting that the girl is wearing a corsage and is in the process of pinning on a bout) and the see through bodice trend just needs to go away.
Could it pass as a wedding dress? Sure, anything you wear on your wedding day is considered a wedding dress. But if your date is right you have over a year to find a dress, so in my opinion I would keep saving up and looking.

1bostonbride: I would not consider that to be a wedding dress. It’s too (without being rude)…flashy? Exposing?
I never liked Pnina dresses that have that corset look on them and I would be uncomfortable wearing it. I think you should continue to save a little and find something better in a couple of months.

It screams prom to me. Also, is that a see-through midriff? If that’s the look you want for you wedding, go for it. Personally it’s not my taste AT ALL.

It looks like a dress for a beauty pageant, not a wedding.

I would wear it as a wedding dress if you added a lining to the sheer part, at least in the front. It also depends on the type of wedding you are having and the venue. As soon as you throw on a veil and bridal accessories this dress will really stand out!

I think you can find something less prom and more bridal if you keep looking. There’s lots of options out there at many different price points!
That said, if you’re really into this dress, adding a veil would go a long way to make it look more like a wedding dress to me.

I agree with the PP. It looks like a prom dress. I think that is because excessive beading or crystals tend to reflect the price range of the dress. When those details look less expensive, it tends to look prom-ish rather than wedding-ish.
I do think it is really pretty! But I would be very careful about buying a dress online from a discount boutique. Often times the dress looks VERY different in person. (I assume this is online, based on the picture). And I would definitely line the bodice – see through dresses resemble lingiere too much, and look too risque for a wedding.
For really affordable dresses, I would look at:
1. David’s bridal – they have $99 gown sales
2. J. Crew – many of their bridal dresses are shockingly afforable, but very well made
3. Bridal consignment stores – a pre-loved dress can save you HUGE $$$
4. Sample gown sales

To me it looks like awedding dress and not a prom dress. Not really my kind of dress but if iit’s your style then go for it.
Throw on a veil and grab a bouquet and you and you have instant bride.

It looks like a prom dress but since the wedding dress now is not exactly traditional, you could pass it with a few right accessories.

Nope, definitely a prom dress. (And while that girl is thin and naturally gorgeous, I’d probably lose my shit if my ~16-year-old left the house in a skintight see-through dress….anyway, back to the subject at hand.)

It looks to Prom-y to me, but the bigger issue is the see through midsection. I would keep looking.

I think it could definitely pass as a wedding dress. It doesn’t look cheap & is overall pretty (minus the see through part). But now the question is: do you want to be showing that much skin??? The bodice looks more like lingerie you’d wear for your SO!
There are definitely other cheap avenues for a reasonably priced wedding dress. Also keep in mind that you have plenty of time to save up even more money for it!!

If you wear it on your wedding day then it’s a wedding dress!

Do you like it because it’s innexpensive or you love the style regardl of the price?
i mean, what’s the price point on this dress?
To me, it could be pulled off as bridal easily (more so that a prom dress), but that’s because I have seen other (even more) provocative dresses classified as wedding dresses with the wedding price tag to coincid, BUT, you need to ask yourself if this is the style you are after.
personally, I don’t think it looks prom-ish and if a girl wore this to prom, I would immediately think to myself “bitch is wearing a wedding dress” but again, do you like it because of the price or would you be drawn to it if it cost thousands of dollars?
