I like the skirt and the buttons (they look like pearls), but the bodice isn’t doing it for me.  If you can take it to a reputable seamstress who has done wedding dresses before, maybe you can have it made into more of a sweetheart or something (have a rush order and explain your situation).  Or, you can buy a new dress if you truly aren’t happy with this one.

Tixi:  I think the dress looks great! It’s a casual wedding, and you’ll be barefoot, so I think it’ll look great. Like PP’s have said, do whatever you feel the most comfortable with. I think the points are interesting in a cool and not distracting way.  Maybe the fact that your wedding is so close is giving you the jitters! I think that if you had more time to let the “marinate” you would find yourself happier with it. Good luck!!! You’ll look beautiful!

I think it’s pretty. I personally would smooth out the points like other ladies said. I think a sash would be good for it also.

I think is a very beautiful dress and looks pretty on you. If you feel unconfortable with the pointy bits, you just need to make a correction with a tailor and make it sweetheart neck line and it will be a softer neck line. Im been honest I love the dress.

Sweethearts are boring.. I think this dress is very fashion foward. The neckline is unique and very flattering on you. I wouldn’t change it!

Hey, you’re probably off getting married soon, but I just saw this post and I LOVE your dress! Great detail. Classic but a little funky. Definitely some art deco going on. I think it’s awesome. Hope you wear it and love it.

I think your dress is very pretty and perfect for a beach wedding.

I love your dress but the pointy bust is, well, not to my taste. Is there ANY way you can get a seamstree to modify it? Throw extra $$ at her if needed, just to get it done in time.
