    I say wear it. The pearls and the pattern in the beading make me think ‘little mermaid’. Wear your hair down and wavy and pull one side back with some orchids.  

    If you want to make it less ‘formal’, see of your seamstress can take some of the ‘poof’ out of the skirt so it’s more flowy instead of being a super dramatic poofy mermaid gown.

    Also, I googled variations on ‘formal beach wedding dress’ and amongst the chiffon ‘beachy’ dresses there were these beauties. 

    So I think anything goes. You’re the bride, you’re allowed to be overdressed! Really, at every wedding the bride is usually the most formal one in the room!

    I wore a big old ball gown with a Queen Anne neckline for my small Hawaii wedding. I worried that it was over the top, but GUESS WHAT? When I picked out a simple conservative sheath dress, Mom said, “you only get one change to wear a wedding gown.” Bought a ball gown and even poofed it out with a petticoat. My day, ladies. My. Day.

    If you love it, please don’t give it up for something that you think other people will approve of. Are you getting married on the beach?

    I am on team  omigod  wear that amazing dress . But it sounds as if you  are really unsure and looking for a reason not to because  of it its ‘unsuitability ‘  Also I see  you have implied  that a lot of your changed decisions about   the original wedding are to do with other people and their views .So,  given that you seem to be a person who does not want to upset others , then  perhaps you have to sell this beauty and buy something more ‘suitable?’

    But, be  sure,  dear OP  that you are doing what you want , that’s all . Also, don’t you want him  to  see you in The  Beauty ?

    I say wear it. It’s a gorgeous dress and even if it does clash with the scenery it would make for some super visually interesting and cool photos!!

    greensunglasses:  Its not a dress that I would expect to see at a beach wedding but it is totally magical!!!! If I were you id definitely wear it and maybe think about changing into a simpler dress for the reception.

    A friend of mine is getting married on the beach in a couple of weeks, when I asked her about her dress (I am a bridesmaid) she told it was a full princess gown, with lace, big skirt, embroidery and all she ever wanted, and that everyone tried to talk her out of it, saying it wasn’t appropriate for a beach wedding, too much tulle, heavy, and blablabla.

    She then told me she didn’t care what everyone said, it was her wedding day and she expected it to be her only wedding day, and she would wear what she dreamed of, end of story! 

    I’d say do what makes you happy, if it is your dream dress ROCK IT!!!!
