    @millermelly:  It does look amazing. You don’t necessarily need to add “a little more”” to the dress. Think accessories!!! Head piece, earrings, necklace, bracelet, etc. could make all the difference.

    I wore a simple dress, and I loved it! The dress just had some beading on the center of the belt. I was able to accessorize it with a statement necklace and bracelets. It was perfect for me! Maybe you could look into a more blingy belt?

    I think the dress is perfection! You could jazz it up with a different belt

    That dress looks amazing on you!! It’s beautiful!!! I do agree that it’s a little plain, but I would try it with different belts/sashes.  They don’t have to necessarily be silver bling, I’ve seen a lot with crystal beading so it it more subtle.  Good luck!

    That is a beautiful dress!!  For similar ideas – the Martina Liana 503 is also quite simple and elegant, and Paloma Blanca has several along those lines too.

    I don’t think the dress is too plain, the material is gorgeous and the design – neckline too – are lovely.

    You have to get that dress! I absolutely love plain satin dresses in that style, mermaid/fit n flare.  The veil looks soooo perfect with it too! The only suggestion I have besides jewelry, like the other bees have said, is a sash with something on it.  I know you stated that you don’t like the all bling sash, but what about one with flowers on it? I’ve seen a sash, on say yes to the dress, that had 2 flowers on it and in the center of the flowers were just a little rhinestone or crystal.  It was cute, and I’m not a flower wearing person. She wore the belt with the flowers kinda to the side, not directly centered.   Anyway, I personally love your dress, love that type of veil (satin edge), and especially love them together.  It is just a tiny bit plain, but a different sash will change the whole look.

    You said that you wanted the little extra something to be on the dress.  The only satin dress that I can think of with a little somethin on it is the Casablanca 1994.  But, in my opinion, the Casablanca doesn’t even compare to the simple satin dress.

    I think this dress is gorgeous and so flattering on you. I agree with PPs about accersories to add to it. For the ceremony you could do a lace bolero and for reception and dance a nice statement necklace.

    I agree with the belt part. If you don’t like beading as much, you can try something with lace, or flowers, or other designs.

    That dress looks stunning on you, I think you should go with that one and jazz it up a litte bit! If you REALLY hate belts, you could go with an awesome veil, a really pretty statement necklace, drop earrings, bracelet, or a combination of any and all of those!

     

    Buy that dress! It is amazing!

    My dress was a simple satin dress. It had all over rouching, but it was still very sleek. Its La Sposa Fanal. (I don’t have pro wedding pictures yet.)

    @millermelly:  I think that dress looks absolutely gorgeous on you. Maybe if you add a different belt, like a blingy one. It might make it not so plain, but the silhouette is perfect for you. Good Luck!
