I like the lines of it! The thing that gives me pause about a prom dress is that they are often of much lower quality fabric and beading. It’s hard to tell from the picture, of course, but it looks like the skirt might be a stiff lower quality fabric.

Have you tried looking at evening wear designed for an adult? Like at Nordstrom?

I think its a great idea. I would definitely buy a prom dress to wear as a wedding dress – what does it matter what its ‘classified’ as? The word wedding lets the designers/stores ramp up the price.

My aunt’s friend wore a white prom dress that she found on clearance.  If it makes you happy, go for it.

Not crazy at all, you’ll get the color you want and not spend a fortune. Win win!

I don’t see a problem with it (: If it means you’re getting the colour and design you want then go for it!

I have a friend whose cousin got a blue prom dress to wear as a wedding dress! It was STUNNING! I say go for it, unless you’re a very young bride. If you’re 18-22, someone (or everyone) might make snide comments about “getting to wear it twice”.
