    So I am totally in love with this dress and honestly didn't think I was ever going to worry about this- but do you think my dress is too formal? I of course am thinking if it on the light ivory - not the blue. Anyways, I am getting married here : www.lekliff.com in Puerto Vallarta, Mexico. The venue itself isn't necessarily beachy but it definitely isn't super formal. I am eager to hear other people's thoughts. The dress is Brigham - Blue by Enzoani. Here was the best pic I could find.

        Its beautiful!
        I say, this is your wedding and you should get the dress you want REGARDLESS of where you are getting married. You dont want to get a 'destination dress' just b/c you are having a destination wedding and then wish later you had gotten your dream dress. As long as your groom and the bridal party are in line with what your wearing I think its perfect!

          The dress is gorgeous! My personal opinion is don't let the location entirely determine your dress...I tried to go for the destination dress styles but in the end I've got a beaded ivory dropped waist and having it altered to a sweep train from a cathedral. It's the dress I fell in love with and knew it was the one.
          That being said, I can just imagine the Wow Factor this dress you want would have in your photography against the sand and ocean. I say go for it!!

            If it's the dress you love, go for it! You could always get a less formal dress for the reception.

                It is beautiful! Go for what you want. When I went trying on dresses and I told the salesperson I was getting married in Cuba their first reaction was "oh so you want to look at the destination dresses", and I said no way! I said I would try on those to but did not want to limit myself and to keep my options open. Even though my wedding in on a beach it is still my wedding day - wear whatever you want :)

                    I think it's a beautiful dress and it would look gorgeous against the beautiful blue sea background. If you love it, get it. You don't want to regret it later on.
