Prom Dress?

FI and I have been a couple since our high school days. He loved my senior prom dress and I was thinking of wearing it to our rehearsal dinner. It is an elegant, ivory, strapless a-line. Anyone have any thoughts on if this would be cute or unbearably corny?

    I am wondering how old the dress is myself and about your FI's love of this dress.  I don't know, it could work if it is campy (I think the sea foam and hoop skirts would be a lot of fun.)  I think the campier the better....I wore my mother's wedding dress to her 40th anniversary party and it was fun.  However, said anniversary had a vow renewal at the Elvis chapel and a few of us wore our 1968 gear and hair so it was campy all around.  My parents both got a kick out of it.  (and even got a little teary when I "exposed" myself....[IMG]http://i31.tinypic.com/mwz3ps.jpg[/IMG]

    I can't believe people would wear their deb dress to their wedding.  I'm just . . . wow.

    The dress is from 2002 but it really is a classic style. I'd put a pic up but I am having some technical difficulties with that.

    Yeah, when I read this, I thought maybe it looked too much like a wedding dress already.   And it might make people wonder.

    Heels: I guess my friend's deb dress was a Vera Wang.  So I can see wanting to get more wear out of it.

    Sometimes I feel like people think that brides are delicate little flower princesses who get all dressed up and pretty for one special moment of their dreams, when really they're just normal people who just happen to be getting married. Things shouldn't have to be sugar-coated for grown-ass women. -mstar284
