    I think that the extremely full skirt is making you look larger than you are. Also, the skirt begins in a weird spot…sort of making your torso look short. Too much dress, in my opinion.

    Goodness I don’t like your poll options – why on earth would you trash that beautiful dress?  Is this a thing I’ve never heard about?   

    I think when you’ve got it laced up nice and snug it will be gorgeous on you!  I love the ruffles and the waist.  Very pretty!

    It’s hard to tell when it’s not laced up, but it’s a gorgeous dress!!!

    I agree without it being laced up it is hard to see how it fits.  I think the concept of the dress is great.  I have seen it look good on many people, but without seeing the fit it is hard to say exactly.   It would be a definate fun reception second dress.

    Agree with minniemluv. I’m not so sure I like this dress for you, but really in the end what matters is what you like. But I say nay.

    That is a huge, heavy gown for a reception dress, but it is a fine dress and what you do on your day is up to you.

     

    I guess I think of a “reception dress” as a very light, easy dress. That one is one  some people would change OUT of, rather than into, after a long day. Plus the lacing and getting it on is going to take a considerable amount of time.

    But you will look good in it, so you should do what makes you happy.
