I think it looks great! In my opinion, you should wear whatever dress you love for your wedding, and not worry if it’s “too much.” If you can’t wear it for your wedding, when can you?! I say get what you love. Plus the skirt is very floaty so it makes it look a bit more beachy.

@MrsD2Be:  I am a big advocate for wearing beautiful formal dresses for destination weddings. Just because you are having a destination/beach wedding doesn’t mean you have to wear a smock!  it is beautiful and not too trendy and gives great shape!!

Girl, that dress is GORGEOUS! I think you could absolutely wear it for a beach wedding! Just because your wedding is on a beach doesn’t mean you have to forgo getting the kind of dress you want. I think it’d be great!

@MrsD2Be:  I think it’s beautiful on you and you should enjoy what makes you happy. That’s a mermaid cut, yes? Mermaid, beach…I think it works. 😉 The flow of the skirt fabric is nice and breezy for the beach, too.

Looks like the material is light and airy enough for a beach wedding.  As for being too trendy, that is going to be a problem with most bridal gowns 15-20 years from now.  That is just the way it works.  When I got married 2007, the trend was pick-ups.  Now that I am getting married for a second time, the big trend is fit and flare or mermaid style gowns with folded material.  Is it a bad thing?  No.  It’s a very flattering cut that looks great on a lot of figures plus it makes most petite brides look taller.  I say go for it.

No such thing as overdressed for your own wedding.  Go for it!

@MrsD2Be:  I have to admit, when just reading the thread title, I thought it has to be. But when I saw it, I think not!!!  It’s perfect!!  You could also make it more beachy and casual with your hair and makeup, etc.

@MrsD2Be:  you’ve seen my dress in the other thread. Obviously, my opinion is that NO dress is too formal for a Hawaii beach wedding. My sister has a wedding planning business on the Big Island and she says wear what you love. She has seen everything! Since we are getting maried at the same venue, I say your dress is PERFECT!
