happyrish :  

I love the general look and  feel of the dress, – I wouldn’t  have called it a halter neck  I don’t think , just a very deep  plunging V.

I’m not a fan of sternum-baring dresses, particularly in a wedding dress so whilst I think its a beautiful artifact, that  plunge  is just too ‘look how much skin I’m showing’ for me

I think it’s really up to you and the image you want to project. This halter in particular gives me a more informal vibe – nothing wrong with that, just depends on your desired look. I wouldn’t think anything different for a bride with a halter.

There’s a similar airy tulle Lazaro with a deep V top if you want to take a look. Style 3751

When I hear “halter neck” I envisage a fairly high neckline and bare shoulders, which can look lovely.

I agree with PP that this dress is more a deep v-neck, and I’m not a fan of wide cleavage/bare sternums in wedding dresses.

I guess a good rule of thumb is, if you think it *might* be inappropriate then it probably is!

You should try it on and see how it looks on you!

I wouldn’t notice much about the style of neckline, I would just notice how deep it is and how much skin it shows. To me it shows more than what is tasteful.

Have you even tried this dress on? your point about it being inappropriate is kind of moot if you don’t know what it looks like on you yet, it might just look awful, you never know.

I wish someone would/could explain to me why, after living with someone for however much time before being married, the goal of what to wear as the bride is “looking sexy”.

It’s a nice dress, I would alter it so the neckline wasn’t so deep.

Girl…if you love the dress, and if it looks good on you – wear it! Especially if you have a smaller bust like the model, I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this. Everyone on this site gets their panties in a bunch over dresses that are “too sexy.” I think this is a good middle ground and this is your one day to look exactly how you want. I think the dress is beautiful and I prefer dresses that aren’t the same old thing (lace, mermaid fit, strapless, etc).

ann.reid.9277 :  just because OP decided she likes this dress doesn’t mean she went into dress shopping wanting to look “sexy”…and even if she did, so what? This is every woman’s one day to look like the version she sees of herself in her head, to be a little extra or over the top. I think this dress is surprisingly simple and stunning and has way more personality than every other run of the mill, lace strapless dress we see on here. And I think it’s sad that just because my husband and I might have lived together before marriage or were “old news” that it somehow implies I can’t go all out to look my version of my best on our wedding day.

witchypoo13 :  I don’t see anyone ‘getting their panties in a bunch’  I just see a range of different women giving their honest opinions, which is exactly what OP asked for

witchypoo13 :  I will quote myself from a post that appeared a while ago- “If your fiancée knows they’re there, who are you trying to surprise with the reveal?”

Skin can be amazingly alluring and “sexy”, and also boring. Same with so-tight-how-did-she-ever-get-it-on looks. Interesting choice of phrase with wanting to “go all out”.

I don’t understand your comment about not looking for something sexy. Does that make a difference?

happyrish :  For me personally, yes, any neckline that ends below the entire breast is too low and definitely more revealing than a sweetheart. Will you be dancing with uncles, cousins, any kids? I generally love halters, but this one would be too much for me. I wouldn’t feel comfortable in it.
