Honestly, while it is simple, it is absolutely beautiful!  I think the simplicity adds to the beauty.  It fits your body amazingly and you just look stunning.  I think if you dress it with a few accessories and a beautiful veil, it would be just incredible.

Honest opinion? I think the dress is great. It’s nice to see a dress that isn’t drowning in layers of sparkles, ruffles and pickups.

I love it! You have a killer figure, and it shows it off but without being over-the-top. You look romantic and graceful and elegant.

I think some beautiful hair bling would add just the right touch!

I love this dress.as others have said, totally reminds of Pippa’s dress!! I think that once you have you veil, jewelry, and hair/makeup done, you won’t think it’s plain.

I actually LOVE the back! Spice it up with accessories and shoes. I’m picturing a few thin delicate stackcable bangles and a statement necklace, which you could get away with b/c it wouldn’t be competing with dress due to it’s elegant simplicity. 

And I agree with Katyelle that it IS nice to see a dress that isn’t all sequins, pickups and the like.

I think it’s very beautiful. Have you considered using a fancy (either lace or rhinestone) sash for the middle? You can find some gorgeous ones on etsy.

You are one of the few lucky brides that can TOTALLY pull this dress off! I say rock it. I wouldn’t go over the top with the accessories. I think a big sparkly hair clip and maybe some strands of pearls would be perfect.

HONEST OPINION: I think it’s of course, very simple. The back makes up for the front being so “plain” ( I had to use that word but I don’t mean it in a negative way ) because of all the ruffles, I just love the back. I love the front too, it just depends on the look you are going for and your venue, decor, overall FEEL of the wedding. I could definitely picture this is a smaller/not as formal wedding…for sure. If that is you in the picture, it looks GREAT with your figure. I don’t think I could pull something like that off because the material is a little bit more light weight it would show every nook and cranny and bump and lump LOL. Plus my ‘girls’ are a little on the bigger side so I wouldn’t know how to go about the bra situation. But, I really like the dress and it looks fab on you! Get an awesome necklace or some super great chandelier earrings to dress it up a little if you want 🙂 I like it. My vote: keep it!

that dress looks amazing on you!  i’m going to disagree with some of the PPers and suggest that you stay away from bling with this dress for a small wedding at home.  sparkle is not the answer, lol.  i would go for lace and pearls, maybe some fabric flowers (not the craft store variety…the handmade satin/tulle/organza with pearls and feathers variety) for hair and jewelry.  soooo romantic.
