I like it in its simplicity.  I would not change it.

Leajon: I would try to do what I can to save the dress but only if I can live with the champagne color. If the color is unacceptable then you’ll probably want to buy a new dress. There is just too many thing that need to be changed. If you can afford a new dress then try to sell the one you have so that you’re not out of a lot of money.

If you added lace to the top it would look like a bib. I wouldn’t change a thing to it- it’s so elegant and simple.

Leajon:  If you check ebay for sample gowns you’ll find some there also

Leajon:  I wore a champagne, quite simple/elegant style dress on my wedding day too. It is a personal thing (and I had never dreamed of a ball gown etc) but I really did feel like a bride on the day and the dress got lots of compliments. A bouquet and veil definitely do help!  I guess just remember why you did buy it in the first place? If you really decide you can’t live with it then maybe you can get a pre-owned one cheap in the time you have left!

Oh no, I love that dress! I think it’s so elegant & classy. I definitely wouldn’t add lace to it. Have you tried it with a cathedral veil with maybe some lace on the edge? I don’t know how you couldn’t feel bridal in that dress with a beautiful cathedral veil. I also happen to love the high neck.  But it is about your happiness. What about doing something to the neck like this?

Leajon:  Change the top. Get it altered into a different neckline such as Sweetheart, with some boning if necessary.

Add an illusion neckline so you still get the shape of the original dress.

I think the dress is beautiful! Instead of altering it, I like your idea of getting a preowned reception gown. With only 90 days to go if the alterations suck you wouldn’t have time to find another gown…..
