I own a dress that is 99.99% similar to this one, and I’m thinking of using it as a reception dress. I wore it 5 years ago for a company holiday party.
I am thinking of changing out the black and making it all ivory – what do you think?
I am also thinking of making it more form fitting/cocktail-y or should I leave it alone?

I love it! I think I would definitely make it more form fitting. I just in VOGUE that if a dress twirls loosely when you spin, then it needs to be taken in!

That’s really cute and if you don’t have the time, leave it as it is.
It’s a perfect dress for the reception.

Jesstagirl – I got mine from Jessica McClintock 5 years ago in Boston. This picture comes from http://www.gojane.com

That dress is gorgeous!! LOVE it! I think if you can’t change out the black bow either it would still look nice. However, I wouldn’t want to wear anything black on my wedding day but that is pure personal preference. 🙂

Ooohh… that’s super cute! And sure – if you want it a bit more form fitting I would totally go for it. I found a dress I loved at a bargain but when I received it decided it was a bit slinky for a wedding gown – felt more like a fancy nightgown. So now I’m going to change into it for the reception. When the sun goes down and champagne is flowing anything goes!

does it fit you better than it fits the model? I love the dress and think it’s a great reception dress, but that dress just hangs off the model!

Lattelove: she needs a good roast dinner in her!
I really like the dress too, easier to move about in and have a good dance!

Mine has to be taken out – I’ve gained about 10 lbs in the last couple years so it fits more like a corest top on me (I’m not a size 0 anymore) LOL .
Maybe I’ll try it on tonight and post it so you ladies can see.
I’m just not crazy about the black on my wedding day
