I am looking for a dress for a backyard bbq wedding.
On the first one, I definitely would need to get the straps adjusted–I am pretty flat-chested, and as you can see in this photo, the boobs look pretty deflated the way the top lies in the picture (I think it looks better when I pull the straps up).
What do you think of the dress, and of the possible success of such alterations?
I’m also including an empire-waisted, flowing gown I’m considering.
I have some time to decide, so I could also ditch both of these ideas/wait to avoid dress regret (but what if I end up regretting not getting one of these :-p)
Thank you for your thoughts 🙂

I think they both look beautiful! I like the second one a teeny bit more, but I also LOVE the back of the first one. Two great options!

i like the first one more and think it will go more with your theme. It seems like a perfect dress to dress up or down. For the chest, you can fix the straps or get a push up bra or many other things. It is really flattering on you and makes your waist look tiny. The second one is nice, but I think it makes your arms look bigger than what they really are.

I like the first one on you better, and I think it goes with your theme well. I’m sure the alterations aren’t too complicated, but even without them, you look great!

I LOVE the first one for a backyard wedding! I had cups put in my dress at Alfred Angelo and was AMAZED how much different it looked 🙂 might be worth looking into!

Hello date twin! I love the first dress on you!! It is beautiful and simple. It would be great for a backyard BBQ wedding. I agree that you should look into having cups sewn into the dress. I am having them put into my dress and it only costs about $10-$20.

I think the 1st dress is very flattering on you. Its perfect for a bbq wedding.
No worries about your chest size, wedding dress seamstresses create magic, and they’ll have something up their sleeve for you so it doesn’t look deflated.

Thanks again, everyone! Dare I ask what you think about bustling vs. cutting off the train based on the backyard theme and the style of the dress? I wonder how a bustle with the pleated dress would look.
