Do you have a picture of you in the dress?

@Dawn1234:  slow down – first, just because your dress isn’t selling on ebay doesn’t mean that it’s not a nice dress.  i bet it’s really difficult to sell a dress on ebay – you should try websites that cater to selling used wedding dresses like preownedwedding and oncewed, etc.  second, i second the pp’s request for a pic of the dress – there’s really no way of knowing if it’s the right dress for you or not.  third, i would say to try the dress on again and see how you feel in it, if you’re still unsure, then maybe going to the store and actually trying on the other dresses, even the ones that didn’t wow you, might show that you that the one you have is the one you want.  i usually don’t recommend doing this, but it seems like you need to do a bit more dress shopping and that you haven’t really done any yet.

@Dawn1234:  I think its a beautiful dress.  I do understand why u can think ‘gypsy wedding’ but its far more elegant than the dresses on that show!!! For me personally, I prefer a more fitted silhoutte…however, the dress does look amazing on you!!! I think you should stick with it for now…especially since you cannot find anythign else that interest you!

Maybe instead you should consider some alterations…tone down the ‘poof’ by removing some of the layers underneath and remove the picks ups. a few alterations can work wonders!!

Honestly, the dress looks amazing on you. Fits you perfectly, and very flattering. I agree with Khloebee, I think removing the pick-ups would go a long way to making the overall look more ‘elegant’. It’s hard to tell from your photo, but the dress has an illusion panel/sheer sleeves right? With beading? Then I would definitely try and simplify the skirt to balance out everything that’s already going on up top!

You bought a dress so far out from your wedding date (2014, correct?). The dress you bought is beautiful, and it looks so lovely on you. What you need to do is ban yourself from looking at pictures of dresses. You have your dress. You fell in love with it for a reason!

 

 

Now, if you’re looking for an excuse to buy a new one, just go do it.

I agree with @peonyinparis: take out the pick-ups if you can, because that will make the dress far more elegant, and draw the attention to your small waist and the bling up top.

The shape and fit of the dress is perfect on you though – it’s just the detail that may need changing.
