Hi there! Lovely choice!! Maybe adding some light lace sleeves and make it into a V-neck like this Watter’s Wtoo dress? (i know this dress has a different skirt to your selection, but check it out below! I think it has a certain shabby chic/vintage look to it…)

You should visit these two web sites they will show you what I call the ” crem dela crem of shabby chic”, it is shappby chic at its finest. You can pull your dress and groomsmen ideas from these sites. I got almost all my wedding inspiration from these two web sites. Good luck any help I’m here 🙂

I can’t quite put my finger on what is missing from that dress, but it doesn’t feel quite “right” for shabby chic (Maybe the shiney-ness of the bodice material?)  I think of lacey/slinky or ruffley dresses and less “bling” for vintage (But I might be biased because I love lace dresses).  Take a look at Maggie Sottero’s Doreen, Antonia, Natasha, Ella?  (That’s as far as I got on the MS website, I couldn’t go through all the pages!)  Good luck and don’t worry–you’ll figure it out!

oh, didn’t realize the dress was already bought.  Maybe you can pull off the appliques on the bodice and put a lace overlay over the shiny stuff?  That might tone down the shininess.  I am in no way a seamstress though so I don’t know if that is a feasible option!  

OR you can bite the bullet and cancel (losing your deposit)  or maybe post the primavera on the classifieds to see if there’s any interest by another bride–if there’s someone interested in the primavera you might be able to recoup some of your expenses or at least break even since it was 50% off.
