I don’t love the proportions of the bodice. Maybe a different belt to rebalance things?

Is that a Mori Lee?  I’ve been eyeing that one. I think it looks fantastic on you! It will look even better in your size and steamed.

When you go in for alterations, maybe see if they can bring the rouching up a bit over the beading on the bust. Even a small change would make a lovely difference. I also see that you haven’t had it steamed yet. Steam is a miracle worker. I’m sure you’ll be happier with it then.

You don’t love it? Who cares. Seriously. You’ll be wearing it for a few hours.

I didn’t *love* my dress but I felt pretty on my wedding day and it was good enough. It’s not like I nitpick details after my wedding.. I don’t think most people do.

It looks good… it’ll look even better when altered. Don’t go through the dress shopping expense and hassle again for something you’ll be wearing for a short time.

I didn’t LOVE mine. it was a lot of stress and work to get it here and “right” and i was so over it I coulda worn cut off capris and been just as happy — If you dont hate it – if they can make it fit (cause fit’s important) don’t stress or have to worry about $ because it DOES look fabulous on you – dress regret sucks (and I never fell in love with any other dress either so I chalked it up to good enough and stopped thinking about it) … now invitation regret?  I restarted those 3 times and still managed to talk myself down.  We start obsessing.. sometimes its good sometimes it only adds unneeded worries and stress..

Can you have a seamstress move the belt higher so it sits right in the middle of your natural waist? I think the way it’s sitting lower isn’t as flattering as it could be, and moving it up might completely change the way you see it

What about adding some small lace cap sleeves. In your original post you said you thought you’d go for a dress with sleeves… You could still add this element in. I think it is a gorgeous dress- your figure looks pretty killer!!

@Rdb89:  

I think it depends on how much money you have to spend and also time.

I would HATE HATE to wear a dress I didn’t love on my wedding day. In fact- I had 2 dresses BOUGHT and then found my third (MY LOVEEEEE). In between the two dresses I bought and my third dream dress- I also had countless “maybes”

If you don’t love it, DON’T SETTLE!!!!

Wow I think it may be too big for you? Is it the same as this Mori lee?
