@GreenEyedMoon: I think a bit more poof might be good.  Also, a belt?  I love belts, and I think it helps balance a look.  Not sure what kind though, something very plain.

I think the poof would look funny. I think once you are in hose with heels, you will look  great. BTW- you don’t have huge shoulders. Everything looks very balanced.

I think a bit more poof would look great. What a transformation, though! I can’t believe it’s the same dress!

I would have never thought to have pictures done with it unaltered – and I think it’s really a FANTASTIC idea! What a great memory to keep in your wedding album. You could even have her photo beside yours. plus, sweet gift for your mom. That said, I really LOVE the dress altered! i would totally wear that right now.

@GreenEyedMoon:  I agree that you shouldn’t do anything until you try it on with some shoes.

You could even pay additional homage to your Mom by wearing some vintage style heels.

Such a nice idea.  The lace details are gorgeous!

Wow, you just gave me all sorts of ideas. My Mom saved her dress too, and it looks similar to your Mom’s (high neck, lots of lace, very 80’s). I wonder if there’s anything that can be done…hm…
