    I think it is a beautiful dress and you look great in it! You looks always look at pictures and add something  to the dress if you want! I bought a very casual dress for a good price and am adding a strap of beading and crystals to add something to it! I think if you love it, dont get rid of it just because you changed venues!! I think it would be great for your new venue!!

    I would get a crinoline to wear under it- they’re cheap and it will giveyou the fullness you’re looking for. If you are worried about it being casual, I wouldn’t shorten the train. 

    I think the dress is fine for your new location. It won’t be a huge production to transport it, and it will be comfortable to wear in august. Try it with the crinoline and see what you think!

    I think it’s a beautiful dress and it looks great on you! I don’t think it’s too casual for a ski resort at all. If you want to “glam” it up, get some nice accessories that you love and consider a fancy-ish updo. But I think it looks lovely, and you loving the dress and feeling comfortable in it is the most important thing!

    I think it is beautiful and elegant! But you’ll rarely, if ever, hear me suggesting getting a new dress when the person has a beautiful one already.

    I think your dress looks beautiful on you, but I did vote to modify it. I love the idea of adding something under it to make the skirt puffy.  I think that will jazz it up to make it feel more formal.  It’s a georgeous dress and looks great on you.

    I think a full crinoline would really change the look of the dress.

    That dress is gorgeous – look how happy you are in it! That says to me you chose the right one!

    If you want to make it more ski resort, how about a shrug? I’m thinking like what Kate Middleton wore to her reception, but more in a bolero style, since I’m thinking the resort will not be really cold in August.

    Here is what Kate wore. Actually, her dress looks like how yours would with more fullness to the skirt.
