    missjz:  DO IT! Maybe it will help you to know that white dresses for a bride is actually a fairly new tradition. Queen Victoria wore a white dress for her wedding in the 1800s, and it took the world by storm. Suddenly women everywhere wore white on their big day. Before that, women everywhere simply wore their “best” dress, regardless of color. We tend to think that our current traditions were always the case- but in the course of history, it’s fairly recent! In fact, many eastern cultures have the tradition of red for weddings!

    You will not look tacky. That dress is extremely elegant. I feel like if you like it as much as you seem to, you will regret not wearing it. Who wants that? And you’re right, it will look AMAZING in photos.
