Please don’t add that train. 😐

That is the perfect dress for your curves. Stunning!

beanerchic69 :  That dress looks like it was MADE for you! I can’t wait to see how amazing it’ll look after alterations. It’s beautiful, elegant, and compliments your figure perfectly.


I actually think it’s waaaaaay more elegant than the dress with the train in the second photo. The style would clash with your current dress and that train isn’t practical at all.  Adding that to your dress will be costly, take away from it and give you a very ackward bulky bustle. I agree with a previous bee, try a cathedral veil and see if that will produce a similar effect without all of the hassle.

That is amazing!  Try a petticoat and hoop – and a cathedral veil!  Or add a belt!

I think the dress looks stunning on you! If you’re aching for more bling you can do more with accessories. Just remember that the dress is like a supporting actress. It’s one and only job is to make the star (YOU) shine! Yes, of course everyone will look at the dress, but once they’ve checked it out all eyes will be on your face and watching how happy you are! smile

The dress looks great! Just needs fitted by your boobs.

Um, are you insane? That dress is stunning on you. Like, holy curves!! I’d kill for those kind of curves.

Don’t change it at all. I think adding more bling will make it less classy and elegant than it is right now. Also that train is so busy! It’s a lot of tulle which would mean completely changing the front of your dress. Plus, that train will be seen for one photo and the rest of the time it’s either going to be slightly folded or bustled. It’s not worth it.

You look stunning!!! Remember that the floor model might be a bit flat/droopy and the mermaid might be a bit more dramatic once you get your new dress in.  Slight tailoring is also going to add extra vavavoom to your amazing curves.  I agree with the PPs that you absolutely don’t need a belt (it would take away from your curves) or add to the train.  A long train with lace hem would be divine.  Great choice bee!

beanerchic69 :  i love your dress!!! my dress is a bit more flit and flare while yours is mermaid but I got a wonderful hoop skirt on eBay for super cheap and it made a world of difference. The seller had variety of styles too! Me dress is simple as well and I’m considered “plus size” as I’m a 12-14 and hippy. I thought of adding to the train as well BUT I just went with a beautiful cathedral veil instead. It made the difference! That along with the hoop skirt and i got the drama i wanted.

i think it looks great too!! I would add a sparkly belt if you want to change something, but that’s it…I wouldn’t add anything to the train. (and fit the boobs 🙂 )

WOW YOU LOOK STUNNING!!!! I honestly don’t think you could have chosen a better dress. Second  guessing the dress is normal but hot damn there is no second guessing your dress! Gorgeous .

The longer train would get annoying FAST and would not look like it does in the picture 98% of the time. Go for a Cathedral veil if you want the longer look.

You look absolutely beautiful! I don’t think there is any need to “add more”- you will be a stunning bride 🙂

It is an amazing dress, beautiful beading detailing. You look stunning, anything added would only detract!

I have to agree with everyone else. ….you in that dress is a guaranteed showstopper!  Make sure that your photographer captures the look on your FH’s face when he sees you for the first time.  🙂
