@mandyhartwell:  That dress is classic, flattering and perfect on you. I’m serious; I really like it! I think when you look back on your photos you will be happy you picked such a timeless gown. That’s my 2 cents.

You could sweeheart the top more and add a big necklace if you wanted to dress it up more. On the big day I’m sure it would look so lovely!!!

I love it! It’s gorgeous! What don’t you like about it? It’s not simple, you’ve got the blingy belt the pleated bust the flowy skirt an the bow in the back. What else could you possibly put on that dress? It also fits you perfectly, I think you look great.

I think the dress looks stunning on you, Maybe the dress regret is still related to not being able to get the first dress you wanted? How did you feel when you put it on?? 

I have dress regret to sometimes, but everytime I try the dress on I remember what I love about it, and how I felt the moment I put it on.

@mandyhartwell:  Well, it is hard not to love something when it is 60% off. I looked up the Belle dress and compared to this dress there is a bit more detail, a bit more ruffles, a bit more bling, but they both seem to be a corset-like, natural waist top with a ball gown like bottom.

I feel like that Belle dress isn’t going to be in your budget no matter how much you love it, adn this has the same general feel. To add a bit more to your look, perhaps you can have super romantic head piece, with flowers or bling. Make sure you have larger, less simple accessories. I think that will help get you to achieving that look you want.

@mandyhartwell:  My advice is to stop thinking about why you purchased the dress. You look fantastic in that dress and you’re going to look even more amazing on your wedding day!  🙂

It is beautiful.  I feel like “dress regret” is one of the more ridiculous aspects of the Bee (no offense anyone).  You will wear it for a few hours, look beautiful and bride-ly, and afterwards everyone will vaguely remember that you wore a nice white dress and looked great.  Getting a good deal is really the way to go, IMO. 


I don’t think it looks “simple” personally, but you could definitely add a statement necklace if you want to be blingy 🙂

@mandyhartwell:  Ohhhhh I love it!! Really, I mean it. I love that dress. It’s not at all simple – it’s gorgeous and romantic and timeless. And it looks stunning on you.

The only thing I would change/add is to cut the top into more of a sweetheart. Otherwise, it’s perfect.

It’s gorgeous and it’s pretty close to the Cinderella 205. You look great!

@mandyhartwell:  So pretty!  I don’t think you have anything to regret.  Its a classic, elegant dress!  If you want more pouf you can add a hoop or petticoat underneath if you want to add something but I don’t think you need to!

@mandyhartwell:  I think it’s lovely. 🙂

Why not pop in a ball gown crinoline to add some showstopping fullness? If you really want, you can also alter the neckline to a sweetheart (to look more like the Cinderella/Belle). 

@bridinmt:  +1 I feel like being on the Bee can create and fuel “dress regret” (in addition to the more well-known culprits–I see you, Pinterest).
