So, I put this dress on layaway yesterday but woke up with a bit of buyer’s remorse. I was originally attracted to the dress because of its simplicity – but now I’m afraid it’s TOO SIMPLE! And boring.
I’m having a small wedding at home and don’t want a completely extravagant dress that doesn’t fit the setting. But I still want to wow my fiance! And I’m not sure if this will do the job. Am I being crazy right now?!
On a side note, I was thinking I could spice it up with an interesting veil or accessories. Any ideas?

I think that the front is very pretty, but simple. But to be honest (as you’ve asked), i don’t like the back of the dress. It looks like jersey knit material :/
It is a great shaped dress for you though.

I love the back! I think it’s romantic, feminine, and has a touch of whimsy.
It’s like a softened, more romantic take on the Pippa dress. It’s beautiful!!!

I think the dress looks great on you and the back is fun and flowy!

I like the dress and it is perfect for your venue. It is very romantic. Before I finished reading your post I was thinking the right accessories would make things pop. Then I saw the back of the dress and thought the dress already has a unique feature. No need to try to make things pop. I really like that it is simple in the front and detailed in the back. In my book simple means classic, sophisticated and elegant. And… the dresss looks fantastic on you!

I love the back of the dress! Sooo flattering and sexy on you!! I think the front needs something and some really nice accessories will do the trick!

I love it on you. That is a dress few women can wear. Earrings and a statement necklace would really complete the look.

I think once the dress is fitted better (it looks a bit loose in the back) you will feel a million times better about it… I love simple dresses, and you are one of the blessed few who can pull off the flowy cascading silk dresses like that! It looks awesome!

I actually love your dress! You could def spice it up with accessories but honestly, you don’t really need to. The simplistic elegance speaks for itself. It is beautiful, and not everyone looks beautiful in that fabric. You do. Rock it.

Typically I wouldn’t like this style of dress but I agree that you in this dress makes it stunning. A great necklace would be icing on the cake. I think it is the perfect choice and you can rock it!

I think your dress is really pretty and I love the back!
However, one thing- the material basically hides nothing so I would suggest that you wear proper underwear on your wedding day (no idea which torsolette would work, maybe Carnival Invisible? Not sure if you can see the boning under that dress)

I think you have the perfect body shape for this dress, but I agree it’s a little simple. Pippa made simple very chic, though… so it’s definitely in style! I’d try to find a blingy belt/sash thing to try on if you want to add something. You can also find appliques for the necklines or anywhere on the dress as well. They have so many with pretty crystal designs that may make you say “wow.” Dramatic jewelry and an embellished veil may do the trick for you too!
I think you could rock it without any changes too, but do what makes you happiest on your big day!!!
