If your event is casual enough I think it works. I love the dress! I would try a different veil with it though. You look great in it though!

I think that it looks gorgeous on you….definitely not “cutesy.” I think that it is perfect for the setting of your wedding and KNOW that you would get a ton of compliments on your dress. And your guests will probably remember your dress; whereas, a lot of us can’t say that. I say go for it and rock that dress!!!

The dress is cute, but I don’t think it’s very flattering on you.  It makes you look short waisted and short- it needs to come up higher on your chest, and the waist needs to be lower.  A long dress, something with a drop-waist, might be better on you.

I also think if you’re going to go short, you need to wear something shorter- that length is no good.

The dress is very, very cute.  Problem: you just said you don’t want to be cute.

Hmm…I know how you feel about not being satisifed with your first choice.  I currently own 2 dresses myself!

If you’re looking for somethng more glamorous, I say keep looking for another dress or find other ways to “glam” it up with makeup and sexy shoes 🙂

Best of luck!

I love it!  But I’m biased since I am going with a short dress.  Long dresses just aren’t my style.

I love a tea-length dress. I really wanted one for a while, think about how cute you will be with some peep-toe shoes.  Super cute.

I think you will look amazing on your wedding day, but if you want to look sexier, consider wearing that dress for the ceremony and ordering a longer sheath-style dress for the reception. Bridesmaids dresses are much more affordable and can be ordered in white, so you don’t even have to spend a fortune on it.

Aww, that dress is so sweet and lovely. I’m envious!

Just from your facial expressions, it seems to evoke your personality very well (obviously I don’t know you and am just going on appearances).

My vote is to take the dress slightly shorter (show some leg) & definitley a different veil, some va va va voom shoes & you will feel like a million bucks in this dress. It’s a beautiful dress and you will feel differently once it has been fitted just for you. There are so many gorgeous dresses out there, it is hard not to have dress envy once in a while:-)

That dress is adorable (not in a childish way, in a very sophistocated way).  The veil, however, totally makes you look like a midget in that dress.  A shorter head ornament (as opposed to hood ornament) whether it be a short or birdcage veil will make that dress look fabulous.
