I think it is the colored bow to be honest.  Add a blingy belt, pearl belt, or white sash and you will be fine!

yes, but I think with a different sash and the right accessories, I don’t think it would look so young.

Shinytoy :  it’s a very pretty dress but yeah, to me it looks too much like a little girl’s dress. If it didn’t have cap sleves, a pink ribbon an have a v neckline/plunging it would be a lot more grown up! πŸ™‚

Allure has a line of modest wedding dresses called Allure Modest. One of the Duggar daughters wore one as her wedding dress and it was quite lovely. You can find them online. I don’t remember if it’s at The Wedding Shoppe Inc. or RK Bridal so check out both.

Shinytoy :  I look at the dress you initially posted and I see some cause for concern: it just doesn’t seem well finished. For example, the placket on the back.

I think there are additional alternatives that would meet your requirements, but with better quality and a touch of sophistication.

I love it! Reminds me of Jane Austen. To look older you could probably drop the neck line a few inches. Wouldn’t show cleavage but wouldn’t be so high.

I think adding a train, adding sleeves and switching up the belt will do wonders. For me I would also give it a V-neck and a deep V-back. A lot will also depend on how you do your hair and flowers and all so try to give those things a sophisticated edge.
