@ohnatto: beautiful dress. as the other bees have mentioned, definitely see a seamstress to tailor it to your body. She may also be able to let out the seam at the waist to give you a bit more length (doesn’t look like there is a hem at the bottom)… part of me is also curious how it would look with a belt – this could also be done to somehow give you length.
Oh as for shoes – have you thought about a flat sparkly sandal?

Good lord that is a special dress. I love it! You have such a gorgeous slende and toned body, maybe get the dress taken in a little?
You have to post pics after your wedding so we can see the whole thing!!

I like the dress itself, but I hate that color. Its just such an unflattering color to me.

Beautiful and different. It is vintage chic and something that bhldn would sell for hundreds. Do what makes you happy. You can add to it w a plain blue heel or gold and some fun earrings. Very fun and love the unique feel. Not something everyone is wearing.

I think it’s lovely, definitely suits your description of your wedding.
A dressmaker would probably be able to make the gathers sit a little flatter – but if not a sash would streamline the join.

It’s beautiful!!!! I love it. Looks much more expensive for sure. I would have it taken in a bit but that shouldnt be hard at all. love it.

@ohnatto: I agree with PP’s about maybe making the shoes more delicate. The reason is that the flats you have on seem kind of heavy compared to the airiness of your dress.
This is a fairly simple option that won’t hurt your feet
Or for something a little more like a sandal there’s this

gorgeous, I would have guessed you found it at a vintage store. I love the back. The only thing I’m not a fan of is the seam line at the waist, if that can be hidden with a thin ribbon braided tulle I think it would make a big difference.

I think that a lighter shade would be better for your complexion …other than that it works perfectly for your theme

LOVE. And do you have redish/strawberry blonde hair? Can’t tell due to the light. I feel like you’d make a great strawberry blonde, Esp. in that dress.

That is a really good idea, because that is the one part of the dress I am not sure I’m OK with leaving as is. I think I will see if someone can cinch the waist in a little and cover the seam with a tulle sash or something.

ohnatto: Beautiful dress, just too short. Unless that’s what you’re going for.

It doesn’t look cheap at all, it looks vintage (and you look fab!)
