I think your dress is beautiful, and you look gorgeous- but I would line it. Lining it won’t take away from the loveliness or charm of the dress.
That said- you should do what makes you happy, this is just my opinion. 🙂

stunning dress… but I don’t understand this lingerie-esque trend. Leave the lingerie-like corsets for the bedroom. 🙂 When I see the dress hanging sheer, I always think something’s missing, or the dress wasn’t finished.
OK. How about this… can you find a stretchy tube top to wear under your dress that you can take pictures in? Then take pictures with and without the lining in outdoor natural lighting around the time that you’re going to take your wedding pics, and we can RE vote when we get a better idea of what it will truly look like.

Normally I think sheer bodices don’t look right for wedding gowns, but you pull this off so very beautifully. You look so… ethereal. Like something out of a fairytale!! Just make sure to do what other bees suggested and take pictures in sunlight and brighter lighting to make sure its not too see through then. 🙂

That is an amazing dress. In the words of Rachel Zoe, “I literally die.”
I say keep it as is.

@Lt.Columbo: I completely love the light sheerness of it and wanted to post a couple other similar designs that look amazing sheer by Atelier Aimee (another Italian designer). I also love the soft colored, floral sashes, but not sure one would work with my dress because of the delicate lace and ruffles.
Recently, I have “considered” talking to my seamstress about the possibility of a removable, sheer peach (likely wouldn’t look much different than my own skin, though?) or lavender lining. That way, if I change my mind at the last minute, I have the option. Hmm…it might add a nice element of soft, vintage color to the dress that ties in my reception colors. My honey plans to wear a grey suit incorporating peach or lavender in his tie. Anybody like?

Okay, I’ve with held my opinion, but I’m throwing it out there and hope I don’t get in trouble for sharing it. I like it sheer. I think it’s ver fashion forward and a tad edgy. I love it. But, I also think the line from Bride Wars about not altering a Vera is awesome, so feel free to ignore my two cents. 🙂
I also love the cap. I think it’s cool.

@Jeannine @ Small Chic: Love the feedback, Jeannine. I agree with you 100%. I am a big city girl with an international fashion sense currenly living and marrying in DES MOINES, IA, however. 🙂 Hence, the quick inquiry as to what the average bee thinks about my fabulous frock. Thanks for the input!

If you do decide on a removable lining I think that lavender would be the perfect colour! Lavender always looks great with grey, will still show off all the bodice details and is a soft beautiful vintage colour (I think that the peach would look to similar to skin colour for a lining, you might as well go sheer).
Unfortunately, the boobtube pictured earlier was from a blog so I can’t find that exact top for sale however just checked places like ebay and there’s some lavender boobtubes on there, if you wanted to use a boobtube you shouldn’t have too much trouble finding the perfect top 🙂
I’m sure that whatever you decide to do, you’ll look amazing! That dress is gorgeous sheer and will be just as beautiful with a lining. I can’t wait to see wedding pics!!!

@LaraW: Thanks, Lara. You are wonderful. 🙂 I love the sheerness of it, but I will likely go with lavender if I do decide to line. Perhaps it would look even that much more bohemian chic. I guess I will arm myself, either way. The boobtube is a great solution to a removable option, though, and easy to manipulate in back. Can’t wait for May 4th! <3

As you are not getting married in a church or any place of worship, then I would say it is absolutely gorgeous as it is – no need to change it
It’s become very fashionable in this area to wear sheer bodices (when I say sheer – some can make your dress look more than suitable for a very modest Nun!) when getting married in the church. I personally find it extremely disrespectful and I’ll be honest if you said you were getting amrried in a church I think I would have been ready to have a rant…

Oh LORD, that dress is purrrfect! I can’t even begin to describe how much I love your dress. I have never felt such love for a dress that I knew wasn’t MY potential dress, but I freaking love YOUR dress. You pull it off spectacularly 🙂 I hope you kept it sheer.

As first glance I would say no lining but in that 4th picture you can clearly see right through and with cameras and flash … ehhhh I would deff go with lining!

I think it’s fine the way it is! You have an absolutely amazing body, you are rocking that dress! As PP have said, just make sure it’s not too see-through in different lighting conditions.

@boombacha: I take my vote back, no need to line it.
You aren’t getting married in a chruch! And that dress is so pretty, it’s about the only on with see-thru corset that I like, and plus you look great in it.
Thanks for showing this becuase I didn’t hink it was possible to see a see-thru corset dress that didn’t make me go: ahem.
