    Its a pretty dress, but I dont think you like it! You have plenty of time to keep trying on dresses. If you were pressured to buy the dress in any way, then its probably not right ๐Ÿ™  Keep looking and find your dream dress!!

    I looked at your picture before I read your text, and I immediately turned to Darling Husband and said, “Wow! Isn’t that dress beautiful?” Seriously, you found a stunning dress! It’s OK to want something simple that isn’t bedazzled–I was the same way, and I loved my simple wedding dress! The bodice is incredibly flattering on you, and I love the flowy skirt. I think you’ve found a keeper, so I don’t think you need to keep looking or worrying!

    @lanipapillon:  I think it looks very nice on you, however if you’re concerned about it, I’d do one of two things.  Either try on some dresses and see how you feel about other styles and the dress you purchased.  Or if you are worried about it being too plain, consider either a dramatic sash or accessories.  The dress has simple clean lines that you could add drama with the right accessories, but I think that perhaps trying on a few dresses could help you feel better about your decision whether you keep it or not.

    It’s a very pretty dress and and simple enough to add some details to give it a little ‘pop’ but still keep your original idea in tact. Why don’t you try to add a sash with some sparkle? It really can do wonders for a dress.

    I think you look beautiful in the dress. The bodice is very flattering. I agree with the idea of trying to add a bit of somethin’-somethin’. Maybe a lovely brooch or you could even try it on with a simple/elegant necklace.

    If you’re still feeling like you missed out on another dress, go try on a few bedazzled or ruched or lacy dresses. It might help settle the anxiety and realize you’ve already found your dress! 

    It really is a gorgeous dress–but you are the one that has to wear it, be comfortable in it and feel as beautiful as you look Smile

    I love your dress. You could wear a beautiful veil with it if you want but if you aren’t happy with it go try on a bunch more dresses. I tried on over 130 before finding “the one”. There was one dress I wish I had bought and just had the train chopped off for my rehearsal and it was very simple. Simple is great. ๐Ÿ™‚

    I think it looks gorgeous on you but if you aren’t sure then keep looking! I vote to hang onto it though personally…

    Love the bottom half but the bodice is not very flattering. Being brutally honest, so sad to say something like that about a wedding dress when the money is already spent, but you’re a gorgeous girl! It’s just not right if you don’t knock ’em dead out there.

    The neckline looks asymmetrical – is one side actually higher than the other, or is it just photographed from a weird angle? If it is truly asymmetrical, I’m not a huge fan of the bodice. (One of my boobs is already bigger than the other – I certainly wouldn’t want to accentuate that!) If it’s just the camera angle, and the dress comes to the same height on both sides, then I think the dress is really pretty.

    However, what I think doesn’t matter. Do you like the dress? From your post, it sounds like you regret not pushing your boundaries a bit when you were trying on dresses. If you can monetarily afford to keep looking, then I recommend going out and seeing if you actually end up liking what you’d initially ruled out.

    I basically agree with all the other posters.  It’s a beautiful dress (I prefer simple dresses myself) and its very flattering.  But if you can afford, maybe you should look at other dresses just for piece of mind.

    I think it looks gorgeous on you. I agree with previous posts… if you feel the dress is too plain I would try added a sash. They have some gorgeous ones out there with various degrees of “bedazzlement” (if that’s even a word… lol). I felt the same why about my dress… felt a little pressured and that it’s too simples and am also second guessing it. But what I have decided to do it get some awesome accessories, some fabulous shoes and make it work. I don’t know about you but I can’t afford to buy dress #2… and plus my mom purchased it for me ๐Ÿ™‚
