Hi! My first post here. . .been ‘using’ the site for a few weeks now while planning my November wedding.
I am having a very small, outdoor wedding in 5 weeks and had the hardest time picking a dress. This is my second wedding and a big, long dress didn’t seem right. I tried on tons of long dresses because that’s what I thought I should be wearing, but I really like the shorter dresses.
This is what I’ve picked. . .is it bridal enough? 11:00 am wedding outside followed by lunch and wine tasting.
What do you all think??
Also, any help with shoes, accesories, etc are also appreciated!

I think it is very cute but I would suggest a nice belt to accentuate your waist and killer shoes. Congrats!

I definitely think it’s bridal, it’s really cute! If you’re not sure about it though, I wouldn’t rule out a long dress just because it’s your second wedding or because it’s a daytime wedding. You can never be too overdressed for your own wedding 🙂

a friend of mine wore that exact dress for her second wedding, which was also a small backyard thing. With a casual but elegant veil, some nice colorful flowers and a pair of blingy shoes – you will feel PLENTY bridal 🙂

Thumbs up on the dress choice! If a short dress is what you like and what you feel most comfortable in, I say go for it! As far as accessorizing….I’m terrible at that and relied on my sister for my wedding accessories. With a short dress, some stylish/colorful shoes would look great (I think anyway). But I bet some of the other ladies here will have some great ideas for accessories!
Welcome to weddingbee! 🙂

I love it! I agree that added a cute belt, a nice veil (I’m thinking birdcage), and a pair of fun colorful shoes will make this whole look come together for you!

At first I thought a belt would be great, but you may have to go through a few because you don’t want them to clash with the dress and you have the natural dress flaps (sorry I don’t know the technical term!) that you don’t want to disturb.
I actually think the dress can be shortened a tiny bit?! Maybe it’s just me or it’s the fact that you don’t have shoes on 🙂
Birdcage veil, sassy shoes or even the extremely short poof veil would work.
