I’m getting quite nervous about the dress I have chosen for my wedding! It wasn’t anything like what I thought I wanted and I just want some honest opinions. I was hoping for something fairly classic but young and not overly fussy. I’m quite scared that what I’ve chosen is far too modern and a bit of a novelty with the stripes?
What do you think? How would you describe it?
It’s a Justin Alexander 8880
My broswer isn’t allowing me to directly upload a photo (apologies!) but I’ve included some links to photos of it. I believe it is shown in an ivory/sand colour whereas I have ordered the dress in ivory/ivory for both layers.
I’ve come across it in the Justin Alexander catwalk show and it can be seen from this link at around the 3:40 mark https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KZuviPMUG3k (seems oddly short at the front in this video, it was never that way when I tried it on so not worried about that!)

I think it’s beautiful and unique! I love the shape of the back.

Looks good! Still simple and elegant but also fun!

I love it. Then again, I am partial to clean, classic, ball-gown/a-lines! Good choice Bee! If it looks good on, buy it.

I love that dress. I think I rememeber when you were about to order it but were unsure. Its gorgeous and so unique! it only looks short because it is hemed that way. And maybe because its on a 6’12” model. I wore my dress slightly higher in the front like the models dress. It reveled my shoes but when I switched to my sneakers for the reception it hit the floor in the front and i actually prefered the higher hem.

I think it’s lovely! There’s a “freshness” about the design that really appeals to me and I thnk it will look even better in ivory/ivory. You’ve ticked all the right boxes:classic, unfussy design but with a twist.
Well chosen bee.

It’s fabulous. No need to worry. Modern but pretty unfussy so a classic.

I remember you posting pretty much the exact same question a while ago. The answer is still the same. The dress is lovely, it is absolutely classic, young and unfussy.

Oh that is STUNNING! I’m a fellow Justin Alexander bride, and my dress is actually quite similar (I’m 9858) – I’ve been stalking mine on Instagram 24/7, and your dress actually comes up a lot as well. Let me tell you, it always looks amazing! It’s just so beautiful and different, yet classic. You’ll be a gorgeous bride! 🙂

I found one of the photos I liked on Instagram for you, perhaps that helps! 🙂
