So I bought my dress a couple months ago now. I bought it on the first day I went out to try on dresses, at the second store we visited. At the time I liked it, but was always worried if maybe it was a bit plain. I do love this dress as a dress, but I’m starting to worry it’s not quite enough of a wow factor.
Can I get some honest opinions of this please?
The dress has a corset back (which I never thought I would get)

I think it looks beautiful and the fit is very flattering. If you want a little bit more maybe you can do some flashy jewelry, or something really dramatic with your hair. I definitely wouldn’t regret this dress.

First I will say that I love the way it fits you. I think that it looks great on you… but I do agree with you on the plain factor.
What about adding a crystal brooch?

I really love it! Fits awesome. I would rock a necklace and a bracelet!

Do you have a veil yet? You could definately pop it with a cathedral length veil with some sparkle to it, add a statement necklace + bracelet and you will get the ‘wow’ for sure!

Your dress is gorgeous and flattering to your figure. I agree that you need to get some statement jewelry and a veil to give it the WOW factor.

I think it’s great, but maybe altering to a more pronounced sweetheart and adding a giant crystal applique on the left hip where the material gathers would help?
If not, jewelery!!!!! Statement pieces a go go.
My dress is simple too, but I’m treating it as my canvas for everything else. 😉

@KristenGotMarried: agreed! I think her suggestions would give your dress the “wow” factor

@KristenGotMarried: You can’t see it in this picture but there is actually beading where the material gathers, it’s just somewhat subtle beading.
And thanks for the suggestions! I think I will try to find some statement jewellry for sure.

I agree with PPs. It’s gorgeous and fits you well, and I wouldn’t consider buying a different dress. Instead, do something fabulous with your hair, makeup, jewelry, etc., and you’ll wow everyone!

@adnama: Ah, I do see it now!! Well theres nothing wrong with adding a little more flash to it – sew on some additional crystals or maybe a more pronounced fascinator-type addition if you’d like.
Also, get a jeweled veil! It’d look great with this dress.

The dress looks amazing on you! If you think it’s too plain you can get an amazing veil,mantilla, bubble. etc…and you can you can wear some jewelry you wouldn’t be able to wear with a more detailed gown. 🙂

You could add some embellished straps if you want to wear your hair up or have crazy lion hair if you want to wear it down. I think the dress looks great and your figure and beauty will be the wow factor.

I think it looks lovely! You could easily jazz it up with your hair and jewelery without doing anything to the dress itself.

I like it. It makes you look sooo skinny! It is very flattering.
If you end up wanting more bling you can always get a belt or something like that. I was in a dress shop the other day and this girl had this veil on and I could see it sparkling from across the room. It was amazing and it looked awesome.
