    Absolutely not! That dress was made for you – you made a great choice! I think adding a skirt will be distracting and take away from your curves and the dramatic lines of the dress.

    ohheytherejess :  First: you look spectacular in that gown!! Congrats on finding a dress that looks like it was made for you!

    Second: I understand your desire for that dramatic tulle skirt and I would certainly go bck to the store where you purchased your dress and see if they have add ons. I’m not sure how well the fit and flare would work with a skirt over it, but the bridal consultant will absolutely be able to let you know….I would say that I’m not so much a fan of the third photo. I think your dress would look nicer with the entire skirt (instead of that half skirt that photo 3 shows). 


    Edit: Just to be clear,  I think your dress is perfect and I don’t believe you need to add a thing to it. But if you’re considering adding an over skirt, I would suggest talking to the bridal consultants so they can give you a better idea of how it would look or what to expect and if your dress would work well with the addition.

    The addtion of an overskir tis very low risk. If you don’t like then just remove it! You won’t know unless you get one.

    Try it, but honestly, I don’t think it needs anything to be WOW!  In fact, I think it may take away from the dress.  There are other ways to be WOW without a big puffy skirt – I think the detailing and the way that dress flatters you is WOW enough.  In pictures two and three, I think the skirts are actually taking away from the dress and picture two is less flattering on you and overwhelms you (granted, your dress would be altered and some of it might be the sleeves as well, but the voluminous skirt seems to drag you down).  I think the skirt works in the fourth picture because it’s a less casual dress and the skirt brings up the level of formality when added to complete something that was missing.

    I love the dress as it is!   If you’re looking for a more “wow” effect, maybe you can get a longer veil.

    Why not try! It’s not like it’s a permanent thing and having different looks is fun. I don’t like that ‘half skirt’ look though, get one that is a proper skirt. BHLDN has some lovely ones.

    I wouldn’t! I think your dress is already wow enough!

    Definitely not! Your dress fits your curves perfectly, don’t hide them beneath a bunch of toule! Your dress is stunning as is 😊

    STUNNING figure!!! Leave everything as is in number 1- don’t add the tulle skirt which will look dated quickly. 

    If you feel “meh’…another another tier to the veil since it’s shorter…a 2 tier cathedral veil would look out of this world. Try on plain- don’t do lace- it’ll take away from the dress. Just try it on or envision- would be amazing.
