I think the top is lovely – perhaps a pretty belt (matching your wedding colors?) would add more shape and give it some oomph? And to boot, what a steal!!!

When I looked at the picture, I thought “too simple” but when I read your comment, I thought “Throw a sash on that thing and call it a day!”  In all seriousness, there is a lot you can do to dress it up.  If you’ve lucked out on that price, stick with it.  You have NO idea how much it will open up the rest of your budget!

I think it is lovely! I’m a simple kind of person so I love it as it is – but you could easily jazz it up with a belt, lovely shoes and so on! The good thing about a simple dress is you can make it whatever you want it to be!

I don’t think it’s too simple at all, but I guess that is my taste.  Intricate dresses, ornate rings, etc. look great on some people, but just aren’t me and make me feel silly.  If you like it, and you think it reflects what you want in a dress, then I’d say you got a fantastic deal!  You can accessorize if you want, but I truly believe you’ll look your best in something that makes you feel confident and beautiful.

I definitely don’t think it’s too simple!  It looks lovely!  You can always accessorize it with a sash/belt or some awesome statement jewelry.

Yes it is a simple dress, but it has really nice detailing on the bust. If you want to accessorize it more, get a sash with some bling (that will cost more than the dress!!-can’t believe your bargain!!), or make your jewelry the statement.

There’s NOTHING wrong with getting a dress from ebay- you are saving a boat load of money! (I’m going to try to sell mine on eBay afterwards.) Say “the dress is going to be a surprise” if you have to.”

i think it looks great! I also prefer simple dresses and I think you’re looks really good on you. If you like it, wear it. And you can brag that you got your dress for $45!

See – you know what your priorities are!  That is what is important.  Have fun planning the playlist, or tasting the meal selections – don’t torture yourself with dress shopping if you dont’ want to! 

A bunch of my friends didn’t show anyone their dress before the wedding, except their moms.  You would not be the first girl to keep her dress under wraps if you feel like your friends are going to give you crap just because you didn’t go through the whole bridal boutique dress shopping experience.  Just do what you want.  I’d suggest scouring Pinterest for ideas on a way to cover your shoulders – people post all kinds of beautiful shrugs, boleros, and capes that I never would have dreamed exist!

Your dress looks BEAUTIFUL! For what it’s worth, I’m not sure your dress needs a petticoat, but if you love it then do it!

@Otterly:  It’s a beautiful dress and as others have suggested there are things you can do if you want to jazz it up a bit. There are many vendors on etsy who make sashes and boleros. Jewelry and a veil will also change the look.  What is important is that YOU love the dress. Not what everyone else thinks you should do. Bottom line you’ll be just as married at the end of the day in the $45 dress as an $800 dress, so go with what you like and what fits your budget!
