I got this older Pronovias dress for dirt cheap. I pulled the trigger on it waaaay early in the planning process, thinking we would have a small wedding in a small ballroom somewhere in the city (and it was literally cheap enough that I didn't have anything to lose). Now that we are starting planning in earnest, FI says he wants a BIG wedding at a state park in the national forest here. I love the idea, it's very "us". It will be much less formal, though and can't help but have a woodsy theme to it. So. I love my dress. Its a sheath, and not that formal, but it is all charmeuse satin and does have some sparkly beading on the bodice, plus a small train.
I'm worried that it's to flashy for a wedding in the woods. Most of the photos I like of woodland weddings have brides in very free flowing, "looser" dresses. I like those, but I'm 6 feet tall. Lots of billowy fabric will make me look like a yeti.
What do you think? Roll with this dress and rock the picnic tables, burlap and mason jars? Or get something more fitting for the new venue?
Be gentle. This is unaltered and with no foundation garments to flatten the mama cat belly.
