@LilyMarie:  The dress is beautiful and looks great on you.  Sample dresses are always a bit crumpled ot whatever, without the bustle it still looks like an elegant tulip drop.  Once it is fitted to you and is new and steamed it will be amazing.  Plus you got a great deal!
I had the same problem.  I love love LOVE my dress, but I was watching SYTTD and thought I would look back at my photos and thought…did I make the right choice?  Why does it look so dumpy and blah?  But I took some time away, and thought of how I felt WEARING it, not looking at photos.  I remember feeling perfect, because it was perfect.  I remember how my mom and sister knew before even I did that it was the one, and how they could tell by my face before I even recognized my feelings.  I remembered showing my step-mom and MOH and FMIL and they loved it too.  I know no one would lie to me.  Mostly I know that when I am in the dress, I feel like it is the one I want to marry my FI in.  Photos of the crumpled sample do not do the gown I chose justice, because it is perfection.
I think you have chosen a beautiful gown that flatter your amazing figure perfectly.  Take some time away from the photos, or from looking at any dresses.  Come back to it and you will see you were right the whole time!

Amazing dress, it’s so dramatic and looks great on you. I think it’s plenty interesting without the train.

@LilyMarie:  What don’t you like about the back of your dress? If it is the zipper or something like that, you could always make it a corset back or if you don’t like the straight back you could make the back a little more v-shaped. 🙂 Otherwise, I think the dress looks absolutely beautiful on you! 🙂

I think the back has plenty of interest, even after the train is detached. You do still want to be able to move freely.  Honestly, I think the back is very similar to the front. I get to feeling the same way when I look at crappy try on shots of myself in my dress.  It always looks a million times better in person and on the day of. If you felt amazing in it, then you made the right choice!
