    It just doesn’t scream class. I think you can find cuter reception dresses that are still fun. I’d keep looking

    It kind of says “showgirl” to me, but nothing really terrible. It certainly wouldn’t make me whisper “Oh my god, what is she wearing?” to anyone (or even think it).

    I really don’t think its trashy, I just don’t know how I feel about it for a reception dress.  Where’s your venue?

    I love trashy, so I’m not a good judge for that, I just don’t like the top. If the top were soft as well I think I would like the whole thing, but harsh glitter on the top and soft ruffles on the bottom confuse me. Sorry to be so honest, I do really like the bottom though, especially if you like to show off your legs! It’s “so you” as you said so I doubt any of your guests would be shocked if you busted out in this thing, they’d probably see that it fits your style. If you still like it in a month, get it. But it wouldn’t hurt to keep looking.

    If you can pull that dress off, congrats! lol. I don’t think it’s “hoochy” but I don’t know that it would be good for a reception dress.

    I’m all for wearing whatever you love on the one occassion when you can get away with it!  If you feel amazing in it… that’s what makes it work.

    Will it give any of your relatives a heart attack? In my conservative area that dress wouldn’t fly but it might be totally fine where you live. It is a regional decision I think. In my area women wear this:

     So my wedding dress will be seen as hoochie momma too. My family isn’t mennonite and my church is more liberal so I am pushing the envelope only slightly. I guess you just need to know your crowd.

    Ummm… I don’t know what exactly to make of this dress. It’s a little squid ink/jellyfish.

    I’d be kinda shocked, to be honest. But it depends on your crowd and, of course, you. 🙂

    I wouldn’t call it hoochy but it looks like something a 17 yr old would wear to prom to me.

    I don’t think anything about the dress says bride or even wedding. If you are tiny then I do not think the dress would come of as hoochy, but I just don’t see it at all for a wedding whether you are the bride or a guest.
