If your wedding isn’t until June, you had plenty of time. Most dresses take between 3-9 months to order, and most can be rushed as well for an extra fee. 

However, the dress you chose has a great silhouette to it. A longer train is a great idea. If you wanted  more volume in the bottom you could always add crinoline underneath.

I think church weddings and looooong trains go great together, go for it!

an off centered emebellishment/decoration (flower, bow, etc) on the waistline would be nice.  I’d say a sash but maybe not with a corset back.

You could maybe do some sort of a sash that flows out into a train?  I’m thinking of my own dress, maybe you could do material that wraps around the hips and goes out into a train.  It also has a corset back.

Not too sure what would work…just an idea!

My dress changed alot from when I tried it in to the finished product, Don’t stress. It will come together and look beautiful!!…. Here it is when I first tried it on… Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket And the finished product…. In white, altered neckline to a sweetheart, made the strap go diagonal across back, and added a brooch. It looks like a totally different dress!!!! Photobucket Photobucket Photobucket

@k.ross: I did the same thing…talk to the shop and see what they suggest. What if you add some crinoloine/pedicoat underneath to make it poofier? You could also add a blingy belt/sash and maybe a dramatic detailed veil?
