You are the African American girl right? (or the girl with the dark skin right? Don’t mean to offend). I knew that wasn’t you in that followup pic. Your body is incredible in your dress pic!

I think it looks fantastic as is with the lace veil. I don’t think you need to add a shrug. 

Such a gorgeous dress, and it fits you so well.

@SweetGrass876:  First, the dress is beautiful on you.  You’re thin, so you could probably wear almost anything.

And I’m totally with you on the “not in LOVE with it” and being okay with that.  I felt the same way about my dress.  I fell IN LOVE with a very expensive Jenny packham dress (retailing around $5,500), but when I tried it on in person, it was *so* much lower cut than expected and I realized it was made for small-breasted women, and I’m not one of those.  It made the girls look AMAZING, but I had a lot of cleavage and that’s not a bridal look I was comfortable with. My second contender was a Claire Pettibone dress that was around 3,000…and althoug I also loved that one, once it was on, it felt a little casual somehow, almost more like a nightgown, since it wasn’t structured.

My third favorite dress was a Wtoo dress that was beautiful in pictures in very much my style (a little vintagy), but it wasn’t the most flattering.  It made me look a bit heavier than the others, because it had a lot of 3-d flowers that stuck out from the dress. But it was the cheapest, by far, so even though I could afford the others—I figured for 2 hours of wearing time, I would just go with the cheapest.

I didn’t regret it!

I think you could def add a shrug to give you that key hole back top that you’ve always wanted. I would look at tulip bridal and see if they have anything that should match the lace.

The only thing is is that with the lace top your lace trimmed veil might be too much all together. I would go with a plain trimmed veil if you do the lace top.

The dress is stunning on you, just amazing. I had a wonderfull gown too, but the photographer didn’t catch it as i wanted, i can’t see my beautiful train in any of the pictures, and in most of them there is only seen till the knees, it sucks right? luckily i had a bridal session few days later done by another photographer and it went just great.
