If you have an amazing figure and flawless skin this could be nice.

But if you have doubts, don’t do it!

I think they’re gorgeous, and if I had the body I would totally rock it!

These are for a very specific look. I think if you’re having a very formal and elegant wedding, they would be awesome. I defintiely don’t think they’d fit in every setting. I also think they’re for a very specific body type – most specifically, a long torso. On a short person (like me, I’m 5’2″) I don’t think it would have the same effect. Also, you need a master seamstress for your alterations – someone who is a master at their craft. 

That being said, I love love love #1.

Have you tried any of them on? I think before you stress too much over if it’s appropriate, try them on. You may not like how they actually look on, and then you’ve gotten yourself worried over nothing.

Those dresses are stunning! I think it’s all about what you feel comfortable with. I think if you’re not getting married in a church then it’s fine, but I would also consider the theme/feel of your wedding. You wouldn’t want the dress to clash with that either.

Oh my total dress envy. All of these dresses are amazing.  IMO not too risque.  Just curious how much these dresses run?

These dresses are gorgeous!!  I especially like the first one.  And if you’re not getting married in a conservative church, go for what you like and what you feel beautiful in.  I hope no one in your life is giving you grief about what is and is not wedding “appropriate.”  Those kinds of comments are not helpful at all.

I think low cut backs are stunning and appropriate in any setting. I think baring too much cleavage would be inappropriate.

IMO, if you’ve got the back for it… Go for it! I think the woman in the photos looks classy but I can imagine that if you didn’t have the figure for that kind of this then it would become more of a negative focus and a distraction from how beautiful the rest of you looked!

If you love it, if you feel beautiful in it, then forget how ‘appropriate’ other people may or may not consider it to be. It’s YOUR day, and you and your hubby to are all that matter 🙂 

be sure to post pics if you do get one of these!
