  • poll: Is it "bridal" enough?


    Definitely not.

    It'll do, if you find nothing better.

    I am sorry but I am not a fan of the dress. 🙁

    I think it fits your theme and if you love it then I think it is the right dress for you. It is personally not my taste as it is too little house on the prairie for me but I’m not the one wearing it.

    If it feels right then do it. The only person who has to love and feel comfortable about your dress is you.

    It’s very meadow friendly, but to me personally it doesn’t read bridal.

    I’ve learnt from other Bee’s posts on this site to never ask for fashion opinions especially if they are not the norm. You’re going to get a lot of Bees telling you that it’s not bridal eniugh or what not because it’s not traditional. 

    I think if you love this dress and you will feel like the most beautiful bride in this dress then please get married in this dress. It sounds like you can already see yourself wearing it and have envisioned yourself walking to your Fiance in it so I think it’s the one. 

    I don’t know what you look like but I can just imagine you’ll look amazing on the day, so that’s a big day yes from me.

    If you really like it,  of course it  is your wedding dress, but I think you could get something  that fitted your  theme and venue , but still looked  more  like wedding dress

      TBH it looks altogether  too Sister Wife to me  and I think you might look back at your pictures and think  ‘why did I get married in a costume? ”  I think if the sleeves were fitted maybe it would look less SW ish?   

    In the final analysis   if you love it , it doesn’t matter what any of us think, but I assume because you are asking you are open to opinions, so I hope you are not upset by any of them, including   mine.

    I’m not going to make the mistake I did on another post with a non traditional dress bc she asked for opinions then got super butt hurt once honest opinions were given and lashed out at everyone. 😅 All I’ll say is if you truly love it then it doesn’t matter how bridal it is or isn’t or how it looks to others that don’t have to wear it. 😀 All that matters is how you feel about it.

    If it’s what YOU want to wear, go for it.

    So my mom got married in a park and had a reception in her back yard, surrounded by azaleas and wild flowers. Not exactly the same, but similar vibe. Her dress would be perfect for your theme! I’ll include a pic, wish I had a better one 


    i know you can find similar dresses on Etsy etc. 


    i think that dress you found is so cute and fits perfectly with your theme! But I don’t think it’s *quite* bridal enough, and I think you could find something that is even more perfect! Just my opinion. I think you’d rock it anywhere you wear it!

    For $45, I’d say you did the right thing buying the dress. I think it’s very pretty, however, the style and pattern are incredibly specific and I’d be hesitant to wear it to something so special. If it’s semi-destination wedding, and a multi-day affiar, you’ll have plenty of other days to wear it for your wedding getaway. That being said, if you love it, rock it.

    As someone who also had an outdoor wedding, I’d highly recommend wearing flats, or bringing some to change into!

    pbubs :  I’m going to start by saying the dress is not to my taste.

    HOWEVER, reading your theme I can see how it fits in.

    I think that if you wore it with your hair in a Farah Fawcett-esque style with a flower crown and maybe a short veil, then it could actually look really nice.

    Otherwise, I would suggest wearing it a different day and keep looking for your Wedding Dress

    I think it fits your theme and I think that dress is beautiful! I don’t believe your wedding dress has to be “bridal” per say. I bought my dress a week ago and I tried on all the traditional white dresses and I didn’t feel like a bride. I ended up with a dress that isnt in your face bridal and I kept going back to it. If you love it and it fits your style I say go for it. The veil and flower crown would bring it all together.

    pbubs :  I guess I’m going to differ a little from PP here, because I love this dress for your theme and the cut looks good on many women, so I’m picturing it as very flattering. ( deal breaker would be if you posted it and it didn’t look good on you, obvi!)

    Its very 70s chic, boho hippie. it’s very Rachel Zoe. Add some long necklaces, a big turquoise ring, and you’re there.

    I gotta be honest, it looks like a house coat my mom used to wear (I think the pattern might even be the same?!).
