I LOVE lace and vintage style mixed with simpler elements. That why I love the dress pictured below. However, I have gotten mixed feedback on the dress that has broken me down. My coworker told me it looked like an “ole granny” dress and my sister told me she loved it. I have been told it was too modest, too plain, too fluffy, not fluffy enough, ugly, too old-lady ish and I have been told the exact opposite. Can I see some bees’ opinions? By the way, I have not yet purchased!

I LOVE it. But sarkles aren’t my thing- some people would feel too plain without them. But it also depends on your body tye and venue- I think it would be perfect for something outside.

Sweet, simple and pretty! Guess it depends how it looks on, but pic looks nice.

I love the top! The only part I don’t like is the separate piece for the train. I’ve always thought that was a strange look.

I love it! For some reason, I think especially those types of dresses need to be tried on. I thought I wanted a dress with a keyhole back or a bolero-type top, and it just did not look right on my body. I would say you should definitely try on a similar style of dress before buying, and if you like how it fits, then go for it!

That is a gorgeous, timeless dress! I agree it can’t hurt to try on a similar style, but overall, I think the dress is absolutely gorgeous. “Ole granny dress…” Puh-lease!

I think it’s very elegant and romantic. It is a more conservative style, but nothing wrong with that. I am personally not a huge fan of the pleated cummerbund – the proportions of the dress really need to be perfectly made to your measurements, otherwise it could sit really awkwardly. But I love the lace bodice, I think the v-neck keeps it modern and flattering too.

@ForeverMrsB: This is actually one of the dresses I considered when I was looking at dresses! I love alllllmost everything about it. The only thing I’m not crazy about is the lace pattern. I bet the seller could change it for you, though. I think a more classic lace would look better than that daisy-ish looking one. I think that might be where the “old lady” comments might be coming from.

This is what I have learned about fashion: when you ask someone’s opinion, if you arent wearing/modeling it, they imagine THEMSELVES wearing it. So what you are hearing from the naysayers in truth is this “I would look horrible in something like that!!!“
The only reason why your sister likes it? I bet is because you are similar in looks lol
Me personally? I think its gorgeous- love the fabric and the simple daisy lace pattern, empire waists are so flattering! Good choice!

@ForeverMrsB: I love the style of the dress but I feel like the lace pictured doesn’t match the style? The little flowers remind me of an old tablecloth or a little girls sun dress from the 60s. It’s a really glamorous looking dress to me and I think that particular lace pattern throws it off.
I personally would have it made with a different, maybe more intricate lace pattern, maybe something similar to this?

@ForeverMrsB: love that dress. I honestly think nowadays people automatically think ‘modest’ when a dress isn’t strapless. My dress is very sexy with a very dramatic vneck and I got told that I look ‘too covered up’. ‘Umm. I’ll be hanging out with my grandma and my father in law all day.’ I think people’s expectations for wedding dresses are skewed towards more flesh than a lot of people feel comfortable with.

@ForeverMrsB: LOVE that dress!! Please stop asking peoples opinions though!! Ive never been to a wedding where I thought the dress was what I would like. When your friends are looking at a dress they are looking at what they like, not what suits you or your style. The only person I consulted when deciding on my dress was my Fi. I knew he was non judgemental and would say if it didn’t suit. There must rn someone in your life like that. Stick to asking what they think. Also, I know a few people who bought online and were disappointed. Be prepared for this being a possibility. I presume you haven’t tried it on!?

Honestly? It reminds me of a 60s nightgown.
But who cares what other people think? You like it and you’ll rock it! (And this is coming from someone who got married in an actual, bright pink nightgown. Because I wanted to!)
