I think you should fit it more to your waist! And maybe a fuller petticoat. But I know some women don’t like the fluff

nearly_mrs_griffiths:  I really like your dress as it is.  I think the a-line shape nicely balances out the sleeves and top of the dress.

A line is a better fit. I agree with kittywolf13:  needs to be more fitted around your waist. Pretty dress!

I’m going to echo the PPs.  More fitted around the waist, with a moderately full petticoat/crinoline.

Your dress is very similar to mine (so obviously, I love it! Great choice!) I added a fit-and-flare crinoline underneath at the suggestion of my consultant, and it helped the bottom come out a bit without giving it too much poof (I didn’t want to look like a cupcake, lol) and it kept the hips from poofing out (the crinoline was snug and fitted around the hips.) It also looks like it could be taken in a bit at the waist, just for fitting purposes, if you want to. You look gorgeous though! Great choice!
