It doesn’t look feminine enough for me 🙃

Re: The Shirt Waist Wedding Dress

I don't care for it.  The top just looks like a casual white blouse.  I know if I were getting married and going to the expense and trouble of picking out a long gown, I would want something that looked pretty and special - not something that looked every day and ho-hum.

Split the skirt up the front, put on a pair of slim pants and it looks like something Lucy would wear on her show.

 

Actually, I like it for a second wedding or a formal affair.

throwing in the term 'housecoat' helped!

 It's Naeem Khan. More surprising is that there is an entire line of wedding pantsuits! Some are quite nice but they all seem appropriate for second weddings and/ or mature brides
