I know that the Adorae has been popular for a few years now, but I’ve loved it ever since the first time I saw it a few years back (In all of it’s versions).
Would you all consider it “old”, or to “overdone” to use in the next year or so?…
Or, because it is a dress I love so much, should I bite the bullet and go for it?…
I know that a lot of people who haven’t planned a wedding in the near past may not know the dress, and it may be new to them, but I still wonder style-wise if it is still current.
What do you all suggest? Any alternatives out there that give the same look?
P.S I’d love to see some pics of Bees who have worn it recently, and see how you styled it… I’m thinking styling may help make it fresh again!

Have you tried it on?? I was in love with the Ariel dress from the Alfred Angelo collection. Once I finally tried it own, I wasn’t crazy about it. I ended up getting a Maggie dress, actually yesterday. I am having mine altered to remove the straps and make it a deep sweetheart. I think the dress is beautiful! And if you try it on and still love it, I wouldnt care. I don’t see the mermaid style going on anytime soon. If you love it and feel beautiful in it, I would go for it!!

@NewSouthYank: I think the thing to remember when you are a bride to be is that you become so absorbed in all things wedding it becomes second nature to look at certain things such as dresses and say oh thats the Adorae or look shes wearing the Gemma.
As a person not in the wedding bubble its likely that most of your guests will just see a bride rocking a beautiful dress.
Years ago before I got engaged and got wedding fever I wouldnt have been able to tell you any detail about weddings I went to that the bride probably obssessed over for months except if the food was yummy and I had a good time. I can’t remember specific dresses,centrepieces,if there were chaircovers etc.I think most guests will be oblivious so do what you love.

@NewSouthYank: I have never seen it on a bride IRL, but it is quite common on the bee and on some wedding shows. With that, most of your guests likely wouldnt tell your sporting a popular dress, so if you love it, get it. Also, its the ruching that makes it so flattering. Other ruching dresses may be just as nice on you
