Weekend Wedding: E-Pic Clothes

I hope you're all having a happy weekend.
When my 100 Photos series ended I thought it would be fun to start another series to have on the weekend. "Weekend Wedding" will be a series where I fill you in on our wedding plans, and maybe ask for a little advice.
Jus & I were supposed to take our engagement pictures (or e-pics as they're known in wedding blog land) today, but Thursday I looked at the forecast and saw that it was supposed to be 60 and rainy. Luckily, our photographer had looked at the forecast and offered to postpone them a week.
In preparation of our shoot I decided to try on the outfit I am planning to wear. As you know, I am dying to wear my gorgeous Vivienne Westwood Melissa Lady Dragon Love Heart shoes for our pictures. Jus & I have decided to stay a little dressy for our pictures and add a little bit of whimsy with our outfits.
Gorgeous, no?

I got my Who Wants to be a Frillionaire dress from Modcloth to wear with my heart shoes and this is the outfit I planned to wear.

As you can tell from my face I'm not entirely sure about this outfit. The dress is way shinier than it looked online and I can't help but think I look like I'm going to the prom. The weather for Saturday is supposed to be scattered thunderstorms and highs in the low 70s so I'm not sure if I'll get cold.
Here are some examples of how I styled the dress otherwise (remember, the goal is to wear my gorgeous shoes!)

Can you tell I was feeling really unhappy/exasperated about how I looked?
So help me out, friends. How do I wear this dress? Or should I skip this dress and try to figure out a different one to match my shoes?

PS Don't forget to enter the giveaway! Hmmm....maybe I should enter so I could wear that gorgeousness for our engagement pictures.

Sorry to say but Im not to keen on the dress, if you really wanna wear the shoes (which are so cute!) then I would get a more stylish/simple dress. I dont know wether it is just the colour or the style of the dress but it does look a little prom ish. When is your wedding? whats your plans so far? Ours is in 2 weeks so getting very close and im getting very excited! hehe!

I love love love the dress, especially with the shoes... I also liked it with the black cardi if you get cold (although, I am not sure about the tights...) Anyways, I really like the dress and shoes, you look beautiful!

i think you should wear whatever you're comfortable in and i don't think you look comfortable in it! definitely wear the shoes though, they are adorable!

i think the best look is the last one with the black cardigan! but hunni, you don't look happy in your dress and you want to make sure you are comfortable for your e-session. i think if you have any doubts then you shouldn't wear it! i think maybe a simpler dress with a red necklace or purse would be cute too!

i like the dress and just the black cardi but i also like that you did some in rain boots. its like that one wedding we saw and thought it was cute. I would mix and match so you get a bunch of different shots

Love love love the shoes, not feeling the dress. I love the color of the dress on you, but I think the shape and style is a little too shiny/prom-y/unflattering. I think those fab shoes need something a bit more simple to show off how cute and eye catching they are.

The color of the dress is great! But, I agree... you kind of look like you're going to a dance. If you did wear it, I'd say do the cardi so it tones it down a little. Love the shoes! I think a simpler dress would make the shoes stand out more.

I hope you post your engagement pics when you get them! We'd love to see them :-)

I love the dress and the shoes .... however let the shoes grab all of the attention and pair them with another dress. You are too cute, and both the shoes and dress are great.

I am so happy you liked Katrin's Cd and the little bunny! I thought you might like her... I wasn't sure which cd to send because they all are a little different (sound style wise). Her first one is more acoustic (one of my faves) and the second is more rock, and the one I sent you is a good mix, but the rock is more bluesy rock and thought you might like that! Enjoy!

Love the shoes, but I'm not sure about the dress. I like it better when you added the black cardigan. From the pictures, it doesn't look like you're very comfortable in it and I would recommend finding an alternative outfit that you DO feel comfy and happy in. I think it will make the picture taking easier :)

you look stunning, and i think the cardigans go well with the dress if it's cooler or if you don't need to be quite so fancy.

The dress looks best with that last cardigan! Whatever you wear you'll rock it!
