Re: Non-Traditional Wedding Dress

A wonderful option. Even were I a young, blushing bride, I'd much rather have this or some other type of non-specific dress than some flouncy, overdone bridal number. Even the most beautiful among them would just not be my choice. Besides all that, they're an incredible investment of money for something likely to be worn only once. Conspicuous consumption weddings are just unfortunate as far as I'm concerned.

Re: Non-Traditional Wedding Dress

I almost see a white belt with it.

The back, as is, seems unfinished without something.

 

Plus...how would you wear the hair for the

back neck embroidery to be highlighted?  Updo?

@NYCLatinaLaw   I feel the same way.  Doesn't have that "bridal" vibe to me either.

Re: Non-Traditional Wedding Dress

I cannot tell if it is sheer lace (a la those tacky Pnina Tornai gowns) or a design on the material.  I like the silhouette but not the fabric.

I don’t care for this. Maybe it is that it seems stiff and formal to me and wedding gowns should be a bit softer? Not sure. 

 

Maybe a nice dress for a hostess at a tea room...?

No, I don't like it at all.  Too structured.  Doesn't look like a wedding dress at all.

 

Kind of reminds me of a nurse's uniform or when nuns wear a white habit.

Re: Non-Traditional Wedding Dress

I like it so much better than many of the more modern dresses brides wear.
