I think it looks gorgeous! Classic, timeless, elegant! Don’t sweat it, after alterations it will fit you like a dream and I bet your doubts will be gone!

I think from the bust to the hem, it’s very flattering & pretty. But I’ll be honest, from the bust up (and it may just be pre-alterations) it looks heavy. Too much on your shoulders and not very flattering for your bust. If this is the dress you dreamed of and you feel beautiful in it, then I’d say to stick it out through alterations. (Though if you wanted to find another dress, there are cheaper options like Church Street Bridal.)

I think that if you convert the straps into a sweatheart strapless neckline and add a sash/belt of some sort to define your waist, it would be perfection.  As it is, I agree with PP and don’t think it’s the most flattering for your shape.  Beautiful dress overall, though, and with some tweaking, it could be gorgeous!

I like at alot but think it may look better if you can lighten up the top by thinning out the straps.

I also think a solid colour sash would look really great

It’s a beautiful dress, I LOVE the bottom. The top doesn’t look right and needs to be altered. I personally think the top is too big and the straps are probably a little too long for you, and they might even look nicer if they’re thinner. It will definitely look better with the right undergarments. A friend of mine got married in a dress with the same neckline, she has a small bust and wore a push up bra and it added a subtle sexiness to it. But that’s her, I know some people don’t want cleavage on their wedding day!

Have you had any alterations yet? Having a dress tailored and wearing undergarments that enhance your silouette makes all the difference. I was shopping for a new dress because mine fit so poorly, and a magician seamstress took care of that. I believe the dress you have can work. Just go and tell her what your concerns are. If that doesn’t work then start shopping for dresses.
