After buying my first dress and was dissatisfied, the bridal salon let me choose another gown from there store and transfer the money. I was sooo glad that I got a second chance to find “The One.” I bought this gown 4 months and am now starting to have dress regret again!!! I knew I wanted a gown that was form fitting, elegant/romantic, had bling and made me look taller. Now that I look back at the pics I have, I find myself thinking it is a little plain and not enough bling. Btw I have not purchased a veil, accessories or shoes at this time. Plus our wedding will be in a garden setting. We are wanting a more romantic/elegant theme. With all this said, Do you think this gown will look great for our theme and location? Would you add more bling and where? What color scheme would you choose? Any comments will be greatly appreciated. Sry about the large pics!!
P.S. Thanks bees in advance!!

I think it is a lovely dress and perfect on you! And it is not so over the top that it is too formal but it is romantic enough to transition to an indoor venue as well. Truly a lovely gown!

Your dress looks stunning on you! I think its perfect for your venue. Don’t forget that you still have all your accessories to buy which can help add more bling if you wish.

I think it is beautiful!!! It will look beautiful at your venue and not be too over the top, but still elegant and sophisticated. I think that if you keep looking and second guessing yourself you will always find a problem with the dress you have and be unsatisfied. Just stop looking! And if you want to bling it up, get a blingy bracelet and a stunning veil!

So pretty! I can see it fitting in at an outdoor or indoor venue. How do you plan to do your hair?

OMG I was in the same situation… Garden theme and all! I had changed my dress from DB 4 TIMES only to come back to my true love:) I think that is perfect! Play it up with beautiful chandelier earrings and a bracelet maybe. It is very elegant and garden-y enough:) Ours in in Mesa,AZ a place called Regency Garden and in March. I am going with a b/w theme and maybe a bright pink:) I was seriously in love with 2 dresses,maybe 3. All different styles. In My Humble Opinion this is perfect for you:) Something classy,looks light and airy. You can do a blush pink,maybe a shade of yellow(sunbeam from DB or Canary) and white for your colors. That was my 2nd choice. But now that I went back to my b/w dress,kinda have to incorporate black into it all.

@Keisha In Love: I was planning on leaving my hair down in curls?!
@sooner365: I love the color bush paired with champagne and mauve but also like an eggplant and mint green.
@beachcandy: I was thinking about pairing my dress with some blingy accessories such as bracelet earrings and maybe a necklace.
Thanks for all the compliments!!! 🙂

@bnoel2: I think your dress is gorgeous on you! And I think it will be perfect for your venue. Maybe you could wear some larger earrings to add a little something, or possible a tiara with your veil? I think a necklace might take away from the beautiful beading on the dress’s neckline, but that’s just my opinion.

I think the dress is great, and elegant. Just add jewelry to pop it and you will be all set 🙂
