I’d search your local fabric stores. They might have a beaded ribbon you can sew on the top or under the bust line.

You can also make some flowers out of fabric to add to the dress. Martha Stewart has some great tutorials.

Maybe add a pretty sash in your wedding color? You can find a pretty brooch and add that to give it a little something more and maybe some crystals for the top? Take it  to your seamstress and see what she can do for you maybe? It will be a little extra cost to have her do it for you, but probably nowhere near the cost of buying a custom made dress from a shop

i had this same idea (buy a plain dress and spruce it up) until i found my dream dress…

i was going to use my mothers wedding dress and take the lace off of it and put it on my dress, sentimental and a dress i designed?
