    I think it’s beautiful and not remotely boring, it’s got a lot of detail and I think it’d look great with a mantilla veil

    Your dress is beautiful the way it is!! I wouldn’t change anything about it! It is definitely a good cut for you. As far as the veil goes, I would probably go with the veil that doesn’t have lace, but that’s because I tend to like simpler veils better…but that’s just me.

    Ok seriously that is a BEAUTIFUL dress!

    Just remeber this: When you’re trying it on in the salon, you’re surrounded by shades of white/ivory/champagne so EVERY dress looks ‘plain & boring’ after seeing them all together. It’s like a ‘bridal lace sensory overload’.

    Also, the photo of you in the dress has a bland background that’s the same colour as the dress. You blend in so much it’s not funny! It really sucks all the life out of your picture. The pic on a whole looks ‘ho hum’ cos it’s like a big picture of ivory!!

    Also, on the day you’ll have your hair, makeup and flowers, your bridesmaids will be there and you won’t be standing in a bridal shop. Your dress is gonna SHINE.

    Trust me!

    The dress is classy, beautiful and you’ll look stunning. 

    If you’re really not convinced fine some accessories you love and hopefully that will make you feel a little more confident. I think a Cathedral veil would add drama and bring everything together perfectly.

    Yes, it looks like many other dress profiles out there. But who cares? It looks great on you! And like the other ladies say, with the right accessories, you can get a very unique look even with a dress many other people might be wearing (which in your case I doubt). Think about the veil, flowers, other hair accessories, jewelry, pops of color, crinoline etc. You can modify until you feel comfortable in it. But if you’re more of a person who’d rather have a more modern or “unique” dress, well, then maybe it isn’t right for you?

    I think it’s classic and lovely. If your Mother thinks it’s kind of ho-hum, then I’m not sure what exactly she was expecting. Your dress beautiful!

    It’s definitely not boring!!! I actually think it has quite a bit going on and would opt for a more simple veil (though I love me a mantilla veil so maybe just not the two tiered one?).

    I like this dress a LOT! Boring is the last word I would use to describe it. The bottom is absolutely gorgeous and it fits you so well!
