This is the finished ‘look’ with the veil and tiara etc.. too much?

Have you actually bought it?

Personally, I’m not such a fan of the layers on the dress, but the upper half fits beautifully and you look very lovely in it. Not too much with the tiara and veil

More importantly though, how do you feel in it?

If I’m being brutally honest, the lace on the chest doesn’t seem to match the lace on the skirt.

I think with the veil and the lace and the lace on the skirt, it’s a bit much.

From the waist up it is beautiful. Waist down not so much.

I love the top of it with the veil and the tiara. I am not so keen on the skirt. It seems mismatched with the elegance of the top.

You have a fabulous figure though which I would want to show off.

The top half of the dress is nice but personally don't like the bottom of it with the frills/layers.

I think it’s lovely and fits very well x

It doesn’t suit your figure imo, it just doesn’t look right

I think it’s the bottom half that just isn’t right

Sorry I'm not keen on the tiara, veil & the top of the dress together I do think it looks a bit much. Have you bought it yet?

Dress is lovely I'd ditch the veil though

PechaKucha Sat 12-Oct-19 12:22:32

Definitely not too much, it's a wedding dress for goodness sake - it's supposed to be 'much'!

GetOffTheTableMabel Sat 12-Oct-19 12:31:25

It’s a little bit much. Tbh, I think a top with that much embellishment needs a simpler skirt and a skirt with such a statement shape needs a simpler top. It is pretty. It couldn’t be described as elegant. Definitely one for a younger bride. (Which it looks as though you might be).
The most important thing though is whether you feel beautiful. If you do, you’ll get that joyful bridal glow and it will look wonderful. If you picture yourself walking towards your fiancé in it, feeling fabulous, then you should get it and sod us strangers on the internet.

From the waist up, it's just beautiful. The skirt is too flouncy though. It's like it doesn't go with the rest of the dress.

Apileofballyhoo Sat 12-Oct-19 12:38:19

Top is lovely, bottom is a bit fussy for me.

ltk Sat 12-Oct-19 12:43:04

It fits you well, particularly on top, so if you love it, go for it. For my own taste, I'm not a fan of the fussy lace across the top of your chest. You do have a fab figure and another dress might show it off better. You don't need embellishment covering you up!

But it is v pretty and it's your damn day. It is you who needs to love it.

Don’t like the bottom of the dress and the tiara and style of veil look really old fashioned. The top half of the dress is ok

Ludways Sat 12-Oct-19 12:47:03

Top half, lovely
Bottom half, lovely
Together, not so much

Racheyg Sat 12-Oct-19 12:48:42

I love the top and bottom but not together.
You have a great figure op x

WhenPushComesToShove Sat 12-Oct-19 12:53:27

Agree with PPs. Too and bottom lovely but not together, they just don't match at all

Sux2buthen Sat 12-Oct-19 12:57:44

Well I think it's beautiful and you look brilliant grin

Loopytiles Sat 12-Oct-19 12:59:12

The top and bottom of the dress don’t go together.

flowery Sat 12-Oct-19 12:59:21

The top is way more fussy than the bottom!

I like the bottom, but it would look much nicer with a sleek plain top half.

IggyAce Sat 12-Oct-19 12:59:48

Sorry it looks like two different wedding dresses have been taken apart and this put together. I say that because I’ve seen a similar top with an a line or mermaid skirt. The skirt I’ve seen with a crystal encrusted sweetheart strapless bodice.
Also the skirt looks white and the top ivory.
