Honestly, you look lovely in it, and it’s such a classic style. You’ll never wince looking back at your photos! I see a lot of room available for some great accessories. Maybe a dainty and sparkly set for the ceremony, and then a great statement necklace for the reception?

It is a beautiful dress and it looks really flattering on you! I love that belt!

Not that you need to, but it is possible to still get a dress for May. I had some serious dress regret, found a dress I really loved and just bought it off the rack this weekend, 5 weeks before the wedding, getting alterations done ASAP.

@Valeriemariaaa:  I think this is normal! I was also a DB bride, and even though I loved my dress, as time went on I started to worry that it was too plain. Remember that your hair and makeup will be done on the big day, which will make a big dfference. I also added a sparkly earring and necklace set that I found on Etsy, which really helped! I know this isn’t for everyone, but I got a little bit of a tan before the wedding (nothing too extreme, just a little color) which really made the white dress and silver sparkly jewelry POP.

@Valeriemariaaa:  I would go for a statement necklace, but that’s not a style everybody enjoys though. Your dress is ”simple” enough (in its shape and fabric) to allow you to have fun with accessories, so if you think a simple, discreet necklace will look too plain, by all means have fun with statement items if it’s more your style ! Wear colored shoes ! etc.

I agree, the dress is beautiful on you.

I don’t have any advice for you because after almost 3 months of ordering mine I’m still second guessing my choice. I wonder when my dress comes in May if I will hate it. It’s so the complete opposite of what I thought I would buy. Felt rushed to buy it. And it’s not a cheap dress either!!

I feel your pain. One thing that did help me though, I had my hair and makeup trial a few weeks ago and I really loved the way I looked all glammed up. I tried to envision myself with that face and hair wearing my dress and the more I think about it the more I realize I just might love how I look that day.

Once you get dressed up and you’re in your dress you might feel 100% different.

@Valeriemariaaa:  My dress is really simple too. Sometimes I second guess that it is too simple but, that is just my style. I am dressing it up with a dark gray sash and perhaps a lacy bolero. 

I do think the dress looks beautiful on you. However, I also see that you are in CT. If you really want to try on other dresses that will be ready for you wedding, I highly suggest going to Vows/Bridepower in Mass. They bring in designer dresses and sell them off the rack at seriously reduced rates. I bought mine there and took it home that day. You may also realize that your dress is the perfect one for you!

@Valeriemariaaa:  Also a DB Bride here! I agree I would switch up the sash I tried on the same sash the white on white didn’t do it for me but when I swapped to a bolder sash (I went with a champagne/tope color sash) I was in love. I think you’re having the same problem the sash just disappears like it’s not even there. I think the dress it beautiful on you and the perfect statement necklace kind of dress!

I agree with the different sash – try something else and see if you love the dress more with that simple change. I regretted my first dress the minute I got it…I ended up finding the dress I loved to death and knew it was the one and never looked back. People joke that I went through so many dresses, but I wasn’t bridezilla, I just knew it wasn’t what I wanted – it was what other people told me I wanted. Be sure you make the decision for you. 🙂
