I think it’s beautiful! Forget what they all said, if you feel confident in it, then rock it gurl! 🙂

I understand the sensual appeal of the dress but it does look like she’s not finished getting dressed (or undressed) in both styles. It would be pretty with a lining though!

I think they are chic and avant garde, but too risque to be classy. It’s less corset-y and trashy than Pnina Tornai, FWIW

@sooexcited:  Truthfully I love the sheer bodice. My dress is somewhat like that too.  Do what YOU want.  Will you feel comfortable? Then go for it.  Since you’re not getting married in a church… why not?

@sooexcited:  If you can see skin, it is too sheer for a weddding gown and needs to be lined.

@sooexcited:  The dress is beautiful as a photography/artistic item. I just can’t find it in me to ever think this style is appropriate for a wedding. I’m sorry. :/

I wouldn’t wear it. I personally don’t think it’s appropriate for a wedding and I know *I* would be super uncomfortable hugging my grandma, grandpa, great aunts, etc wearing it. It’s your dress and your day, obviously you can do whatever you want but you might want to consider whether you think some of your guests and close family members might be offended by it.

I normally think the see through corset dresses aren’t the nicest, but this one has such elegant lines I think it would be fine for a none traditional wedding, especially in Paris!!! I think you’ll look like a movie star! You could combine it with a super soft white cashmere cardigan or bolero for the ceremony if you do have to be a bit more covered up. 

If you’re nervous about it then you could have it lined with flesh coloured fabric. I hope you have a totally fab body (or upper body) though as that dress is not going to be forgiving at all.

Yeah, sorry, there is no way a sheer bodice is ever going to be classy. It looks like lingerie. Expensive, expensive lingerie with a massive satin skirt. I just don’t understand why, on your wedding day of all days, brides feel the need to purchase something sheer. I can’t imagine those are wedding photos you want to look at in twenty, forty, fifty years. 

That particular bodice looks like what my friend wore UNDER her dress. If you insist on that dress, line it.

Oh, I think it’s gorgeous, and certainly not too much.

I love sheer bodices, and this one is beautiful. It’s not too sexy or too anything, in my opinion. It’s just right.

I say go for it.  If you end up feeling like it’s too revealing once you try it on, you can always take it to a seamstress and have the bodice lined.  But if the dress itself appeals to you, then it’s clearly the right choice!

On the one hand, I generally think brides should be able to wear what they want, and what they feel comfortable in. On the other hand, I think that dress is, if I’m being kind, expensive lingerie paired with a ball skirt.

I’m probably one of the only bee’s who really likes this. But I think some lining would make it look more bridal. I chose a dress with a sheer bodice, but I am having a light pink lining sewn in along with having some extra sheer fabric to make it a lot less sheer. Per request my father. Not becuase he think it’s classless- thankfully. He works in the fashion industry and understands the couture look. But because the cups of the dress were too white compared to the bodice and it really disrupted the flow of the dress. If you love the sheer bodice, please wear whatever you like. Everyone has their own opinions, but yours is the most important on your wedding day. You are the only one who will care how you looked in your photots when you look at them 20 years from today.
