I should mention, i’m on a tight budget – spending thousands on a dress (while I would looove to) isn’t an option for me. So I have decided to keep it simple and elegant. My dress arrived… but i’m kind of underwhelmend by it. Sure its nice, its pretty… but its a little flat. My wedding is a casual outdoor wedding by a river.
I was thinking…should I try and give it some pizzazz by adding beads/belt/something?
Does anyone have any idead on what can make this dress a little more fabulous? Or should I just start again?

I think its gorgeous. No need to add anything.

I Think the dress is pretty as is!
You could add a big sparkly or colored belt, go crazy with a statement necklace, but it’s beautiful as is as well!

I think that a sparkly belt might give you the ‘pizzazz’ that you’re looking for 🙂 But your dress is really pretty as it is, too!

A sparkly sash and the right necklace. I think it’s beautiful otherwise.

I love it the way it is… im not a huge bling person. What about a colored sash just for that pop?

The dress is gorgeous and it looks fabulous on you! Maybe you can add a different belt to it to spice it up a little bit. I also think that with the right jewelry/accessories, it’s going to make it look even better.

I LOVE it. Seriously. Its refreshing to see something so different from all of the other wedding dresses that all start to look the same. Its sophisticated and classic. I am of the belief that less is typically more though so I am not really a fan of in-your-face looks. I would wear some gorgeous, blingy earrings and leave it at that

Thank you everyone! A belt sounds like a great idea – does anyone have any suggestions for suppliers? I’ve found a few on Etsy.
