Ball gown appropriate?

Hi all! 


So we decided to compromise and have the ceremony outside and the reception in a ball room. The only thing is the dress I picture myself walking down the aisle in (haven't bought/tried on yet) is a ball gown. Would it be ok for an outdoor ceremony? 


This is the dress I've been drooling over.

I think it would be fine!! Lots of brides do an outdoor wedding with a ball gown. Beautiful!

First of all welcome to Project Wedding and second of all the dress you are drooling over is gorgeous! To answer your question, I believe it would be appropriate simply because that is what you want! Even though the dress is a ballgown, it still has a relaxed feeling to it and would look perfect in my opinion for a beautiful outside wedding. I was going to originally wear a ball gown and I had an outside wedding, but after trying on dresses, ballgowns did not suit me at all. Here's a little inspiration!

I agree with the other ladies about the dress you posted being completely fine for an outdoor ceremony, which is BEAUTIFUL by the way. 


Looking forward to seeing more of your planning come together and we are all here for any help you might need.  : )

I think that it would be great for outdoors. My "Aunt" wore a white ball gown at the Fruitlands Museum and vinyards when she got married and it was all out doors and it was a beautiful evening under the stars!


She was amazing in her dress.


I don't think it would be as great for a beach, but then again I have seen them in beach weddings too.

I agree with the other ladies, go for what your heart desires . I think it will be fine for the outdoor ceremony especially since its moving right inside into a ballroom.

I don't think it really matters what is "appropriate".  If that's what you want then get it.

It looks like you've got your answer.  You must come back and post pics of your dress shopping experience!
