My FI and I are having a very small wedding with a brief ceremony and then dinner in a private dining area in a fine dining restaurant. The dining room has a very old world feel to it with a large mahogany table and french doors opening to a private terrace. We are keeping decorations very simple with just a few vases with flowers down the centre of the table. Keeping that in mind, can I please get some opinions as to whether this dress would be in keeping with the theme I am going for:
I’m just not sure and I keep doubting myself.

@Vikstar: I think it’s a gorgeous dress! It looks elegant to me, so it seems appropriate for the mood you’re setting. Question is, is it you? And would you feel comfortable and confident wearing it? I only ask because you said you had doubts. I feel that this is an important question when any bride is dress shopping, as if you love it and it makes you feel good that shows. Conversely, if it isn’t something you love, and you’re just picking it to match a theme, that might show too.
But yes, to answer your question I can see it fitting the event. 🙂

It has a Gatsby feel to it but I think it plays nicely with the theme you have in place.

@Snapdragon2804: Thanks for your thoughts on the matter. It does feel more “me” than more of the bridal type dresses I’ve been looking at. I’m not the type to be a poofy princess or a lace girl with a 6ft train. I think I would feel much more confident in it than anything else 🙂

@Vikstar: Then I would say it’s a great choice. I think it’s beautiful and fits your theme.

Oh wow it’s beautiful, I even checked the price thinking I might want one for myself but I can’t imagine where else I’d wear it because it’s so glamorous. It definitely has that 30’s thing I can’t get enough of.

Aww, thanks ladies I really appreciate it! I ordered it blindly a few days ago and it’s on its way. I just hope that I don’t look horrible in it!
@Bebealways: Thank you! The price is amazing, hope the quality is too.

I love the sequins on the dress. Its perfect for the theme you are going for…small intimate ceremony with dinner at a fine-dining establishment.
