I do not think your dress looks cheap. But I know most people say that sequin are what makes a wedding gown look cheap. So maybe that’s what’s bothering you. Sequins are not hard to remove but are time consuming. Maybe ask a seamstress to help remove them and add actual rhinestone appliqué.

I think you’re thinking too much about it, your dress is beautiful! I don’t think it looks cheap at all. You’re looking at it a lot more often and more closely than anyone else will. I do the same thing with my e-ring. I find a lot of “flaws” in it that no one else sees because I see it all the time and become a ring critic. πŸ˜‰ Your dress is lovely, in IMO, nothing needs changing! πŸ™‚

I agree with thte other bees, it doesn’t look cheap. Also, I think sometimes “less is more”, and it looks plainer at the bottom which offsets the detail at the top.

By the time you’ve got a cathedral length veil with it it will be breathtaking

Can you post a picture of you in the dress?

The way you have photographed the dress makes it hard to evaluate. A full length picture would help.

It looks great, not cheap at all! But I think removing the sequins would probably help – would it be better if they were those clear shimmery ones like on the lace you have, rather than silver?

I would definitely ditch the sequins.  My Chinese dress adventure wound up having the same sequin treatment all over the bodice after I had repeatedly said NO SEQUINS and NO SILVER embellishments at all.
