Wow, what a lot of great help everyone has been I expected one or two answers but it gel all of those replies and great feedback has been great.
Well I took the advice and tucked the sleeves in the dress and tried it on. I thought it looked ok but then I took some pictures on my phone and looked and oh my goodness I think it may have looked even worse. I then had a slight mental breakdown and now I have decided to see if I can find anything else with a month to go and very little money, but I will see how I go worse case is I will wear my dress but I know that the dress really isnt me. This forum is great thanks again to everyone for the input. This is a great group of people!

Hey girl I’m sorry the alterations aren’t going the way you want **hugs**
If all else fails you can definitely get a flowy beachy long white maxi dress inexpensively which would be perf for the beach! It wouldn’t have the pretty beading on the bodice but if you’re seriously ready to throw the baby out iwth the bathwater & start over this season is maxi central. Or at least I’m finding maxi dresses everywhere I go! <3

I think you look beautiful and that it will be fine on the beach. Sounds more like a self esteem issue than a dress issue. Love yourself, sweetie. You are beautiful.

@kenty85: Since you’ve decided to try to find something else, I would suggest browsing Macy’s online. Their dresses tend to be simpler and more flowy, which is perfect for a beach wedding. They also shouldn’t break the bank AND you won’t be sweating like crazy because the material is lighter. 🙂 I think you’d look great in a sheath dress.

I would suggest getting a friend to take some better quality pictures where you’ve done your hair and make up, you’re smiling and you’re standing up straight. I think that alone would help you feel better about the dress. avoid the cellphone pictures, they’re never as flattering as they should be.
I’m not a fan of the straps, I don’t think they’re doing anything for you, but otherwise I think you look lovely. You have a great waist, which the dress shows off.
