I honestly wouldn’t change a thing. You are the bride, therefore the dress you wear is bridal enough. I think it is unique and stunning, but it really isn’t that crazy or out there. I would compliment the dress with a floor length veil with ribbon edging, and a chunky pearl bracelet. Do a soft low updo for your hair and simple pearl stud earrings.

AML8:  I love that dress! Just pair it with a veil. I also think a plain gold necklace like this would look stunning, and play off the gold details on your dress:


Maybe a gold trimmed veil?

I also think you shouldn’t change it. You bought this dress for a reason becasue it’s the dress you wanted to get married in… you will look bridal because it’s your wedding day! I also agree with the previous poster about the gold trimmed veil–you might as well bring out that accent!

don’t change the dress if you love it, but if you’re worried about looking bridal,  veil will do wonders.

It’s beautiful and you will certainly look like the bride. don’t you DARE ask someone to cut up that dress. Are you planning on a headpiece of some kind? A veil will 100% make you feel like the bride.

I like it. Wearing a veil and holding a bouquet will mean no one has any ideas that you don’t look like a bride!

Go full-on traditional bridal with your hair and accessories: updo, tiara, veil. The style in the model’s photo is subdued and elegant because they want to sell the dress, not the girl. You can find accessories with gold touches and it will all work well.

Throw a veil on and bam you’re bridal! I like your dress, it’s different and unique. Don’t worry about what others say!

Don’t change anything! That gown is just as bridal as the next! I would see more where you were coming from if it was a bright red mini-skirt dress or a black tutu dress with a Los Vegas feather headdress or something…. those things are more non bridal (although cann still be easily worn as wedding dresses). Your gown is gorgeous the way it is and those telling you it’s not or that it’s not bridal enough don’t know what they’re talking about.

I love it! It will be bridal because you are wearing it! Are you planning to wear a veil? I like the suggestions @bridey77 posted! 

It’s very regal!

AML8:  Omg I love that dress!  Don’t change a thing. Who makes it?

I agree with the others,  just wear a veil if you want to wedding it up a bit more.  

I have always dreamed of wearing this Maggie Sottero “Gianna” but as I’m a curvy Dirty Delete, there is no way I could make it happen lol.  Your dress rocks!
