Is this good enough for a wedding dress? 1
I’m getting married in October. Only 16 guests. I got this cheap dress off of Amazon. Is this good enough for a wedding dress? I’ll add a nice belt and a veil. Maybe a petticoat

    It's lovely! I think all it really needs is a nice steam and a veil if you'd like one!

    Yea! Anything can be a wedding dress! It's white, it's long, it's lacey. All things traditionally wedding dressy! You look very nice, and you can add a blingy belt or other accessories to the whole look to really bring it all together. No one is going to look at you on your day and be like "why is she wearing that dress?". Be confident! It's your day and if you love it, you don't need to live up to the expectations in your head that you think everyone else has.

    If you love it, it's by definition "good enough!" I think it's beautiful and looks perfect on you. I bet it's comfy too which is a bonus. I personally don't even think you need a belt, I love the look without it and would probably just add whatever jewelry/veil you like, but whichever way you decide to go I think it's a great choice!

    "Good enough" is subjective. If you love and it feel great in it, then of course it's good enough! It looks great on you

    The dress is fine! As a former Bridal/Lingerie Shop owner for 12 years and a professional bra-fitter I am just going suggest that you get fitted for a long line strapless bra. It will bring in the side of top/chest area and Will push up and position your breasts a little better so they rest up a little at the top of what appears to be the built-in bra area of the dress. In this picture you may notice that your breasts now rest at the bottom of the chest area. A good fitting, long line strapless bra will give the entire dress a better fit —- no belt neededSmiley smile Feel free to call me at 812-322-1500 if you would like to talk about itSmiley smile.

    As long as you feel beautiful in it, then it's a wedding dress! And not that it matters, but I love it on you!

    Looks great! I think a petticoat might make it feel a little more bridal to you!

    See a seamstress, good amateur or pro. As above poster pointed out, the bust and midriff fit is off.
    2-3 inches total taken out of the shoulder seams, lift the whole back one inch, and the front one to two, see what lookes best. This, and a good bra, will bring you from a low slung/ not supported bust, and a neckline that should be base of throat ( just below the hollow) but os now a dipping line, and Raise the top curves of the underlining up where they belong. As a result, the midriff wrinkles will disappear. A gown lift at the shoulders, then the right bra, will do wonders for fit.
    I like the dress, but make the best of it. 🙂

    Hi there,

    Oh my gosh! I think that dress is the perfect wedding dress for you! A little bling belt will add just a touch of sparkle. Great choice!
