    That’s a LOT of dress! πŸ˜‰ But it’s beautiful, and you will look gorgeous. I’ve seen very informal and very formal dresses at afternoon weddings, and tbh, I didn’t judge the bride for her choice at all.

    it’s your wedding, you can wear whatever kind of dress you want to – it’s the one day we can use that excuse freely and over and over again, so i plan to take full advantage of it!

    The dress is gorgeous and if that’s what you want to wear go for it!  I absolutely love my dress and would wear it no matter what kind of day or what kind of venue we decided on.

    I don’t think anyone will think you’re over dressed for your wedding! You’re going to look beautiful in your dress, and you’re going to wow your guests, regardless of what time your ceremony is. πŸ™‚

    I don’t think you can be overdressed at your own wedding πŸ™‚  I had a 2:30 pm ceremony and wore a formal dress.

    I also don’t think you will be overdressed. I am getting married at 1:30 in the afternoon and I am wearing a beaded lace full ballgown with the biggest crinoline (7 layers of tulle) that I could find). It is your day. You should wear what you feel pretty in.

    Like the other bees said, can’t be overdressed if you’re the bride. πŸ™‚ 

    I was worried a bit about the same thing; our ceremony is at 11:30am. Hell, it’s not every day I get to wear a fancy dress!! 

    Enjoy your dress and have a blast!

    I went to a wedding recently where it was a brunch and the bride was in a super fancy dress. My mom went dress shopping with her and said her dress was “too fancy for a morning wedding.” But she was beautiful on her wedding day! She was happy and confident in her dress, and it showed. I think brides are allowed to break the rules, it is your day after all!
