I need some opinions! I went to a store to look at some fabric swatches for bridesmaid dresses when I saw this beauty and just knew I had to try it on. I haven’t started officially dress shopping yet but this is the only thing I’ve seen so far I actually wanted to try in two stores.
When I first saw it I thought I wouldn’t like it since feathers are a little out of my comfort zone but I was just drawn to it. I plan on looking at more dresses before I pull the trigger but I feel like this is probably the one. My main concern is that this isn’t the best shape for my figure and that I’m going to look back on my pictures and find it too “quirky” or something. On the other hand, the sample was too big so it’s hard to tell exactly how it’ll fit despite clips/back stuffer and a camera phone doesn’t take the best pictures. What do you guys think?
The pictures with the veil are to see how a cathedral length would look and the fit is off in those since they stuffed the back instead of using clips. Also, do you think this could work with a lace edged veil or is that too much?

Wow, I think you look great in it. It’s a beautiful dress. I like the feather part of it.

I also really like the veil you have on with it. The whole look is very elegant, makes me think of a beautiful swan.:-)

Like the dress! Doing a veil w. lace maybe a little overkill but it’s hard to tell w. out actual pics. I really like the veil you have on. Happy dress shopping 🙂

I think the fit is very flattering on you! I agree the feathers are a bit out of my comfort zone too, but it’s a beautiful dress. I think an elbow length lace edge veil will look nice. If cathedral, I would keep it with a raw/simple edge. Good luck!

It really is a gorgeous gorgeous gown! I love the simple veil with it, but perhaps if you went with some really simple lace, that could be good too! 😀
