I think it’s perfect. Is that an actual tulle/net skirt? If so, I would say if you’re really in the mind to do it, go to a craft store(maybe even Wal-mart!), and get some small pearls, and maybe sew some randomly around the skirt? It’d give a little pizazz to the skirt, b/c I think the simple bow is very nice. The pearls in the skirt, would be allot cheaper, and I believe it would be much simpler to DIY for a first timer, than to remove fabric and add fabric. You could also find a nice but simple pearl brooch, and attach it to the center of the bow on the bodice, and that could also help if the ribbon comes loose during dancing etc, that it doesn’t fall down, because it would be actually pinned to the dress, as well as being tied.


But honestly, it’s a great dress, and the simplicity is awesome! May I ask how much they charged you? Or, who you went through?

I’m a huge fan of DIY, but in this case, I would leave it as is – it’s beautiful!

@Barash:  You could always find embellishments and have a seamstress sew it on, it shouldn’t be too hard for a trained one to do relatively easily and quickly! 🙂
