Too fancy or simple enough?

Hi everyone!! So I found THE dress, have zero doubts about it. BUT as we started planning, I realized I don't want a fancy and large wedding at the picture perfect venue.. I want a simple, close knit backyard wedding.. but I can't help but feel that my dress is too fancy. It's super simple and traditional, which fits me perfectly, but it just feels fancy. We also might elope in Ireland and I feel the same about it being too fancy. I'm not sure how to explain it. Am I being a crazy worry worm or does anyone agree?
Sorry about the crappy photo.. also the boobs will not be as exposed after alterations 馃槄 Too fancy or simple enough? 1

    It鈥檚 gorgeous! It鈥檚 your wedding, big or small, you deserve to look stunning and be the center of attention. I know that even if we had to do a court house wedding, I would walk in with my big ball gown and long train because I only get to do this once!

    Wow!! That dress is gorgeous on you!! I don't think your dress needs to match the venue. If you have zero doubts about the dress, then go with that same confidence when choosing your venue.

    I think this dress is gorgeous and not at all too fancy. I would actually wear this myself to a more casual ceremony. When I think fancy, I think beading, lace, etc. Wear this dress! It looks amazing on you!

    Beautiful!! I'm a firm believer in that the dress chooses you!! It's so classy!! If you want to add sparkle, go with a belt or wear a bracelet and earrings!

    The dress is gorgeous and you can still do simple backyard wedding wearing that dress. I had initially envisioned my FH wearing a white open collared shirt with chinos and he insisted on wearing a suit for our beach wedding.

    Go for the dress you want! My fiance was curious if the style of dress I get would differ on location/weather. Told him nope! Same with my friend, had a country wedding and got the complete opposite of the style of her wedding and was happy she went with what she wanted -not what fit the venue. Get what you want!

    Do it!! It's YOUR dress...you said it perfectly! Zero doubts....if you have a backyard/outdoor wedding, you could put down an aisle runner of some sort to kick it up a notch! Backyard doesn't have to mean jeans and a polo shirt, ya know? I think your dress will be perfect for whatever venue you choose!

    Wear the dress that you want! Even if I thought the dress didn't match the setting (which I don't think is the case), I would still tell you to wear it because it is your day and you deserve to look as glamorous as you want. Heck I tried on my dress the other day and almost wore it to the grocery store because I want to wear it everywhere lol.

    I completely understand. Our wedding was supposed to be semi fancy and i have this huge ballgown of a dress. The wedding is now 50ish people in my inlaws backyard. Im still gonna rock my dress because if it's the one, then it'll work regardless of how fancy the venue is. Plus you're the bride. You should look fancier and better than everyone else.

    NOT AT ALL! You look stunning! what gives it a timeless look is the simplicity of the texture but intricate design at the top and it wraps perfectly with you 馃グ It's your day and what ever your them is you are the bride and as long as you love your gown and it makes you feel amazing own it 馃拋鈥嶁檧锔忦煉

    I think the dress is just PERFECT, for any type of venue or backyard wedding. I think you did beautifully. That is THE DRESS! Plus your the bride no such thing as too fancy. Lol I think the dress is perfect for any settling honestly. And boobs look fine with the design of the dress lol.


    Ps. Please don鈥檛 look at any more dresses. Trust me. I made the mistake. Because when I found THE DRESS I found another dress that looked similar just more glitz and glam and I felt like I was going to end up with two of the same dress! Lol but YOU DID GREAT EVEN IF YOY ELOPE IN IRELAND PICS WILL BE AMAZING. You may not want to minimize your look any more and not LOOK like a bride. Ya know?
