Objectively, I don’t think it’s too plain. The lace bodice looks really pretty, and a less complicated dress just means you have more scope to accessorise. Definitely investigate a more ornate sash, maybe with some jewels. You could do a necklace with that neckline too. And if you want to wear a lace appliqué cathedral veil, then you should definitely stick to a simpler dress.

The most important thing is whether the dress flatters you, that you’re comfortable in it, and feel beautiful.

No it’s not too plain, its simplicity is what makes it stunning. I love it 🙂

I really like it, personally, and to me, it isn’t plain at all. Yes, the skirt is simple, but it’s very sleek and elegant.

That being said, you don’t sound thrilled with the dress, and if you haven’t purchased it yet, and you’re already having doubts, you should try on a few others to really gauge your style. 

Wear whatever makes you feel pretty. There are a million reasonably priced dresses out there that are major stunners, so don’t let price fool you into getting something/not getting something.

I do love the dress though, I think it’s very pretty, especially with a beaded sash, like you said.

I agree with the previous posters. I love the simplicity of the dress. I am sure you will look beuatiful in it.

I had a similar issue, I went dress shopping and convinced myself that I want nothing more than demure, elegance on my big day which is kind of odd because I consider myself pretty trendy. I bought the first dress which was very simple, no train, but pretty and within a few weeks I had major regret. I kept having this nagging feeling of wanting more for my dress. It was my big day and I wanted to feel fabulous not just ho-hum. So I went back and got something that made the “little girl dreaming of her wedding dress” side of me smile from ear to ear! If you’ve got doubt and can start looking again I say give yourself the chance to do it!
