So this is how my dress will kind of fit once some of the alterations are done (hemming it to tea length and taking in the shoulders).
My worry is that when I’m dancing (lindy is a rather bouncy dance) some things will make an unnecessary appearance and when you look down, you can see my bra. However, from straight on, if I bring the neckline any higher (called a temple piece apparently) I fear it will look too high. What do you guys think?
Also, opinions on types of veils would be appreciated.

I think as long as you have a supportive bra, you won’t have to worry about things showing. No one is going to be looking down your dress except possibly your FI if he is taller and he won’t care.

I’m 5’0″ so 90% of those attending are 4-14″ taller than me

you could use some dress tape, like the style secrets stuff they sell at VS:
I know there are cheaper places to buy double sided tape (like target), but I can’t speak for it since I have only tried the VS product.

Oh yes double sided tape is amazing! I would make sure to get the clothing type, not the Scotch kind because it doesn’t adhere to clothing as well.

Those would be great options- if I didn’t break out in hives from dress tape
Do you guys think it looks alright as is? I spent the first 15 minutes of the meeting worrying that you can see the lace of my bra only to be told by everyone in the shop that I was imagining it, it stands to reason that my cleavage problem is the same thing.

It looks like you could wear a bra with good coverage with that dress, it has straps and it isn’t super low-cut and that seems like it would solve any “wardrobe malfuntion” problems…I don’t think people will be able to see your bra. If the dress is gapping at the bust then it is probably too big and should be taken in more. You could also attach the double sided tape so that it holds your dress to your bra, instead of putting it on your skin and that would be a double fail-safe against your bra showing.

I think you’re worrying over a problem that doesn’t exist. That’s not a plunging neckline by any standard and I see now hint of underwear anywhere in the picture. I wouldn’t make it any higher though.
If it makes you feel better, get the dress tape but don’t stick it to your skin. Use it to stick the dress to the top of your bra cups. You can even add more pieces to the straps on your shoulders and stick that to the dress too. That should eliminate any remaining worries and keep things where they should be without any hives.
