    It's fine - wear it and don't waste the money you spent

    It looks better than you think

    Not good at all - try to find something off the rack fast!

    @lorie:  I’m glad you’re looking into different shoes and also I think a nice satin sash would be stunning against the lace. You could maybe even just buy a satin ribbon from Joann’s or Michael’s. You’ll be a beautiful bride! I’m glad you feel like you’re finally getting your first real marriage and I wish you true joy and happiness!

    The dress is cute, however I would just change the shoes. Something less chunky. Where is your ceremony?

    You have nothing to worry about. I do agree with pp a sash to accentuate your gorgeous hourglass figure and some different shoes (heel of some kind and a little dressier- thongs do nothing for the dress). It will look stunning!

    Awww hugs… you look beautiful !!!! A sparkly sash would be wonderful and yes change the shoes, find something that may elongate your legs a bit.

    I think a belt and different shoes can help. You probably could call around for a sash and shoes should be easy enough. plus when you get your hair and makeup done – you will look terrific.

    I agree with all the PPs… it’s amazing what even a little heel can do!

    You look great, a nice mix of romantic & playful… the only other thing I thought was, would you maybe consider shortening the inside layer a tiny bit? It might be a bit more flattering if it hit you right under the knee, before the calf starts. But, I know you don’t have a lot of time, so I wouldn’t worry about it if it just adds extra pressure to your preparations that you don’t need. Just a thought!

    I agree with the other, a great pair of fun heels and an awesome belt/sash would really make that dress pop!

    Don’t worry about it. You look gorgeous and you’re going to be an absolutely beautiful bride!

    The dress is gorgeous and you look fantastic! Please get a sparkly pair of thong sandals. My friend just bought a pair from Payless-they have different variations but these would add some sparkle. Add a light shawl, and put your hair up. I like your natural curl.. could see you wearing it to the side with just a flower in your hair or piled on top of your head. I like the idea of a belt but maybe one with a pop of colour? If you are going for a simple look, my friend did a gorgous blue sash that made the dress. Here are the pics.
