The dress is fab!  If you want to dress it up, I would only switch out the sash for a more blinged out version.  Otherwise, it’s perfect!

Wow! That gown is absolutely perfect with that sash!! It’s STUNNING!!! 

All you need to finish that elegant, regal, classic look is a pair of gorgeous sparkly dangle earrings and a blingy bracelet.  Your choice of hairstyle/headpiece/veil and flowers/shoes will add the finishing touches.  There is NOTHING plain or boring about that gown! 🙂

It looks great!! I think the elaborate veil was a good suggestion OR you can do giant earrings which I’m totally all about.

You are talking to the wrong person about “plain”. I think those are the most gorgeous dresses because it allows the bride to wear the dress, and not let the dress wear the bride. I think you have the perfect figure for that dress, with the right accessories, hair, and makeup…you will look stunning!


Congrats on your engagement 🙂

It’s not too plain, it’s totaly gorgeous and chic! Plus, you can go all out with the accessories if you want. You’ll look beautiful!

I think you look great in the dress! Its simple and elegant. The sash is great with it. Maybe you can wear a more dramatic veil?

I think your dress is STUNNING and looks perfect on your figure! So flattering!! I looove the sash; so if it’s part of your dress, I think you’ll be a gorgeous bride 🙂 If not a part of it, you should totally get it.

I think with a veil, and teh right accessories, hairdo and make up, it totally won’t look too plain.


I wouldn’t add lace or sweetheart bc I think it can take away from the classic look..

The only potential suggestion if you still wanted to alter is maybe do a lower back?

There’s a dress i’ve always loved from David’s Bridal Vera Wang’s collection with an AMAZING back (Twil Gazar Mermaid gown): http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_Twill-Gazar-Mermaid-Gown-with-Grosgrain-Sash-VW351081_Bridal-Gowns-Shop-By-Designer-White-by-Vera-Wang?cm_sp_o=3AE%20vv%20ewyz%20dkzlt%20H05wybwEgwCjCPybpzk%207BcElCjCe8NDviov

You chose it for a reason!

Mine was a very ornate Maggie, but that’s my style.

I think it suits you!

wow, I love the dress and think you look absolutely beautiful! I know you won’t look plain on your wedding day but if you are feeling so, you could always add some flashy jewelery!

The dress looks fine as is imo. But if you would like to alter the sash, I would try out blingy sashes or flower sashes just to see if that makes the dress feel different to you. Also, You could wear the dress as is and use some accessories to “jazz” the whole look up if you want?

I think it all depends what kind of wedding you are having and what you prefer to wear yourself (Modern design jewelry, vintage style, art deco etc etc). I think the dress without the sash itself is like a canvas, and depending on you, you can wear what ever you want, it has really clean simple lines and I think whatever goes as long as you do it tastefully and not overdo it.
