Beautiful dress.  Its understated but very elegant.  It is perfect for your wedding and venue.  If you want more bling, I will do it w/ accessories.  Nothing more.

It’s not really for us to say if it’s your “the dress”.  If you love it (or don’t), the venue doesn’t really matter that much.  It’s a bridal gown.  it’s formal enough for any place you could ever choose to get married.

FWIW, I sold my unworn dress regret dress and bought another second hand designer dress online and my total loss was that of a relatively inexpensive bridal gown.  I don’t regret it a bit, but I did risk eating quite a bit of expense if everything didn’t sell as neatly as I was hoping it would (and did!)

i really love your dress! But if youre second guessing yourself and have plenty of time to look, then why not! I’m sure you’ll go back to your origional because theres a reason you chose it! and then after looking around youll feel better about your decision or youll find something you like better!

To your comment of “I’m scared about that moment you enter the church and everyone is looking at you, at you dress choice.”…

When I was shopping for wedding dresses one of the sales ladies said something to me that stuck with me throughout the rest of my dress shopping quest and that was “when you alk down the aisle you want to have a dress on that makes people say “gasp, look at that girl” not “gasp, look at that dress”.  I thought it was great advice and it charged my perspective on my dress quest completely.  With her words in mind I set out to find a dress that accentuated the features of my body I liked the best, was beautiful but didn’t compete with ME, and that most importantly made me FEEL beautiful, sexy and special.  It wasn’t easy but I found it 🙂 (Rivini’s Kennidi with a crystal beaded belt instead of the chifon sash it comes with.  I LOVE it). From the picts you’ve definitely picked a beautiful gown that looks fantastic on you, but if you’re not “feeling it” and want to, then maybe its worth trading it in for one that makes you feel amazing.

Choose a dress that pleases you and trust your decision. What “they” think does not matter, can’t please everybody anyway. If this dress felt right from the beginning, then maybe it’s the one!
