Thanks for the tip you guys! I just made an appointment at a local bridal store to try the Marianne on tomorrow 🙂
I love Swan Lake! And yes I really like the ballerina feel haha
I’m so happy PPs mentioned the Marianne by Maggie Sottero because I wasn’t finding any dresses with pointy necklines that weren’t super structural. I told the dress maker to make them rounded, then immediately recanted and asked for some time to decide lol. Thanks everyone for your 2 cents! I know it might not be a lot of people’s style but I really am drawn to this neckline for some reason

Yes, that’s exactly what I was trying to get across! I only posted the other pictures to show an idea of the pointy neckline, but the actual neckline I want to be much softer like the inspiration picture. I suck at photoshop otherwise I would’ve just altered the OG pic to get that message across. Fiance is amazing at it but I can’t ask him for obvious reasons lol.

Sorry I meant Jim Hjelm 8214. There are several threads for the dress on the Bee. I swooned over it and the MS Marianne until realizing it wasn’t the right silhouette for me.

I love the unique factor of the pointy! Would you mind messaging me the name of the dress maker you are using? I would greatly appreciate it 🙂 Thank you in advance!

A fried of mine had pretty much what you are talking about with the ‘pointy sweetheart’. It looked great at first but after a few hours sittting/standing/posing/dancing the points became ‘bent’ outwards (from the pressure of her boobs and shoulders I guess) and the neckline just looked a bit of a mess in the end, plus she wore fake tan and the pointy bits rubbed and got grubby.
Just something to consider as sometimes things that look great in a photo or when standing still don’t stand up to a full wedding day! I do like the look though.

I like the pointy necklines but I can’t see it in lace. It works with highly structured, modern looks like your examples.
