“Prom Dress” as wedding dress?

There is a dress for sale near me for a really great price!! Only downside: it’s a prom dress. I’ve heard of some women using prom dresses, but I’m worried this one just *looks* too much like a prom dress. Honest thoughts?

    It’s a beautiful dress! It does not look like a prom dress to me at all. I love the train, and the silver on the top makes it totally unique (thus extra beautiful). Congratulations! You’re going to look stunning on your wedding day!

    If it didn't have a train, I would say it looks like a prom dress. Since this one has a train though, I think its fair game for a wedding. If you love it, go for it!

    I don't think a pron dress should have a train lol. To me I would think it's a wedding dress more than a prom dress. It is beautiful. Of you feel good in it I think you should go for it.

    This is beautiful! And on sale? I say go for it! You can’t even tell it’s a “prom dress”! It’s nicer than some of the wedding dresses out there! Do you, girl! You’ll look beautiful in it!

    I think it looks beautiful and to be honest - when I had my graduation in 2015 I thought that all the girls wearing white dresses just looked like they were wearing wedding dresses Smiley tongue So I can see it both ways.

    If you try it on and it screams "THIS IS MY WEDDING DRESS!!" then I say it's a wedding dress.

    That dress is beautiful!!! It looks very bridal to me. I bought a prom dress for my wedding and everyone I've shown says they would never have guessed. I agree with Amelia that especially alongside accessories/a bouquet no one would think twice about it.

    It's beautiful, and I agree with the others it doesn't scream "prom".

    Once you add accessories like a veil or a bouquet no one will be questioning it.

    It doesn’t scream prom to me. Just more of a formal gown. I love that it has a bustle already at the back - that’s very bridal. I wonder if the person selling it would let you try it on first?

    I don’t think it looks like a prom dress, at all! It’s beautiful- and if you love it and it’s in budget and fits what you’re looking for then it’s perfect!
