    It’s a beautiful dress and I actually think you look fantastic in it. I feel like raising the neckline will definitely help. It just looks a bit off. I would probably go with a thinner belt instead of the ribbed one. It looks too harsh against the lace.

    I think it’s beautiful. I like the ruched waist. If you wanted to, what about adding in a thin rhinestone belt and have it attached? I think it would look great without the straps as well. It is truly beautiful and you look great in it as is. I would do a drop necklace and drop chandelier earrings.

    You will look like a doll once u have accessories, veils, makeup, beautiful hairstyle all on you.    As for opinion, I think your dress will look great with sash like this: http://www.etsy.com/listing/127157413/luxury-couture-rhinestone-and-pearl?ref=sr_gallery_5&ga_search_query=bridal+sash&ga_ship_to=ZZ&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery   Veil lenght: Because your dress does not have long train, it’s best not to wear a floor lenght veil and not to wear a lace veil because it may distract the detail of the dress. Maybe a two tiers ?     

     

    Jewelry: this set will look stunning on you.

    No..just add the belt in the middle of the sash. Have them sew the belt on so it looks like part of it, too.

    Beautiful dress! I agree–add a thin rhinestone belt to the middle!  I think you’ll fel much better after alterations and you’ve made it your own.

    I think leave it as is! It does look like the straps could come up a little bit though.

    Great dress!

    I think you look beautiful!

    That said, you look petite and a wide band breaks the verticle line of the dress, which can make you look shorter rather than the tall, lean, elegant look. I initially thought a thin crystal belt would be ideal but it looks like you have beading across the top and so if you do a belt it would need to match the top beading as far as color/sparkle level etc. Instead, it may be safer to do a thinner band. 

    Doing delicate jewelry with sparkle will bring attention up to your face as well. 🙂
