    I think your current dress looks totally amazing on you.  I wouldn’t change a thing.

    Your Fiance probably doesn’t know what he’s talking about.  It will be totally different when he sees you in the dress.

    You look great, but get a ballgown if that’s what you want. I’m 5’1 and everyone says fit and flare works best. I purchased a slim A line which looks beautiful and has all the details I love, but I look like a broom to myself too. I have a more rectangular kind of silhouette so it made me look like a bridesmaid or something and did nothing for my figure or height.

    I ended up getting the ballgown I initially wanted, with a slightly higher waistline. It made my figure look fuller and curvier. 🙂

    I think you look great in your original dress, I voted you keep it as is.  What I think you should do to help ease your mind is go to a boutique that carries detachable skirts and try one on over your dress.  I feel its important to be true to who you are and your style on your wedding day.  So after trying the skirt if it makes you feel best then go with it.

    Do not touch that dress! It (and you of course) look perfect!

    I think you look beautiful. I’m very indecisive as well, one day I like something, another day I don’t. I always asked my baby brother for his opinion because I never could decide. Now when I’m picking out a special dress or the like and I’m not sure, I send him pictures of me in it to help me decide. I think you should stay with the dress you have, but if trying on a overskirt would help you decide, then do that. 🙂 Don’t worry about your Fiance, if he’s anything like my husband he probably won’t realize your dress looks like the one he said he didn’t like, and has probably already forgotten he ever said that. You look so pretty, that’s all he’ll think about.

    Do what makes you feel happy and comfortable!  I love your dress as is, if you want the opinion of a stranger.  It’s truly gorgeous!

    cheesefries :  Love it!

    This one works, I would be afraid to get the fuller one without trying it on because depending on how gathers are sewn with tulle, sometimes they can add bulk there that’s not easy to wear for shorter women. 

    I do think a super full skirt would look amazing, but if you can’t try one on, I would go with the one you did try  on.
