I love the first one Smokie with the train and the back that looks like a bow!

I don’t like the bow bunching either. Can’t you order it with a different back?

I think the bow is kind of awesome, but it is the biggest design statement of the dress and if you hate it I think you should keep looking. The other parts of the dress are not that unusual so it shouldn’t be too hard to find a similar dress without the bow.

I agree with snmcdowell.  I like it.  But if you don’t you should keep looking.

The bow is my favorite part of hte dress.  But it’s a statement so if you’re not into it, keep looking.

The bow really isn’t me so I’d have to vote no. My train was a little too overwhelming so they let it out a bit – it’s a shame they can’t do that for you! My vote is to keep looking.

I really like the bow – I think it’s quite dramatic and classic. But the most important thing is that YOU like it…only you know your personal style and what you’ll feel best in on the day 🙂

I really love the bow, myself, but I’m sure you could find another dress like that one without the bow.

I like it, but it’s definitely supposed to be the "wow" factor of the dress, or the "main course" so if you don’t like it keep looking. There are many dresses with styles similar to the front without a honkin bow in the back. Good luck!

I kind of like the bow too. I like dresses that have something unique about them. But like the other ladies are saying, if you don’t like it, I’d find something else. Where’s your venue?

Yea, I totally understand not liking that bow.  I’d keep looking. The front is beautiful and it seems like something you should be able to find without a gigantic bow.

The bow is my favorite part!  I’ve heard people say that they cried when they put on their dress and that’s how they knew it was right-the bow doesn’t seem to be bringing you tears of joy… 🙂  Find one that is 100% you! 🙂

I agree that if you’re not in love with a major feature of the dress, you should keep looking. From what I can see, the front is very flattering on you, and the drop-waist style isn’t too unusual, so you should be able to find some alternative dresses.

Here’s a few I found:

Allure 8610 (sorry, no direct link, but you can search by style #), Allure 8504, Alfred Angelo 803, Casa Blanca 1950 and I’m sure there are many more out there. You deserve to have a dress that you’re perfectly happy with.
