it feels very conservative to me

For me personally it looks semi suffocating. Especially if it was worn outdoors on a beautiful day.

I think someone with a slender neck could pull it off. I know I couldn’t, but I do like the lace detail. I feel like it would work for a winter or fall wedding (colder weather) and not outdoors!

I think high neck dresses can be beautiful.  But that one in the pic is a bit too much.

I like them and I like the one in the picture. I would be careful about high neck and long sleeves and voluminous veil all at the same time. It could end up looking like you’re drowning in fabric.

The veil in the picture you posted is too much for that dress, IMO.

I like them but you need a certain body type to pull it off. I tried one on and it looked awful lol

Not the style for me. I have very square shoulders, so anything high necked and I look like a block. As pp said, it looks uncomfortable and suffocating.

If you have a slender neck and shoulders, and small-medium bust size it would suit. Not sure about that exact one. A bit too much around the neck itself maybe.

Love love love them, and that one especially! They are so elegant and vintage looking (think Grace Kelly!) I don’t think it is “too conservative” at all when the high neck part is see through lace with a sweetheart bodice.

Love them! So elegant. But I don’t think your wedding day is about being sexy. Then again just check it’s comfy, I tried one with a high neck illusion mesh bit and came straight up in a rash when it rubbed along my collarbone area.

I like them, but the one in the pic with that veil is overwhelming. It also looks itchy :/

I love them as long as they are on a “romantic” style dress. I think that dress in the picture looks great!

Cute. Looks like it itches. I hate clothing on my neck. As long as it comfortable…
