you look beautiful in the dress, don't stress. nothing a few alterations can't fix.

If you change dresses and you want to look taller, a higher waistline (empire) would do the trick. If you stick with this dress, I think hemming it and heels will do wonders!! Your hubby will think you are gorgeous either way! Good luck! Let us know what you decide!

I really want something that is fitted and sexy-- like a sheath or mermaid. If I can take pics I'll show you what I come up with so I don't make the same mistake again.
Thanks once again everyone!!!

From the back I think that it look amazing! very sexy, and I think it elongates you with the vertical line down your back
From the front - I think you are right it does cut you off a little, I think it is a combination of the bulk of the straps and the length of the dress
That being said - I would look at your options for altering it as I think with some creative changes it could be the 'one'
Here would be my suggestion - dont touch the back - but make it the feature of the dress. Cut off the bit at the front making it strapless (the bit still goes up the front and bust, just finishes at the top of the dress. I would get straps made out of the ivory fabric that goe from the back of your neck (connecting it to the top of feature up your back) and have the sraps connect the the outer edges of the bustline (essentially turning it into a halter). You would also need to shorten it. The white halter would elongate the dress at the white will travel up to the top of your shoulders insted of cutting off at the bust.
Anyway, thats just my suggestion but I'm no steamstress!! Hope it helps anyway - just something to think about - maybe it is the 'one' and you just haven't digged deep enough just yet
I think that dress is beautiful!!!
I totally agree with Jo&Daz's suggestion. I think her ideas would make the dress fabulous. The back is absolutely stunning so definitely don't touch that at all.
As for the front, the reason you look cut off is probably because the detailing that comes from your neck/shoulders goes all the way down your front to your hips. That's what is elongating your top half, so it's making your legs look shorter and "cut off". If you do the suggestion above, it think it will balance out the front of the dress a lot better and not make it seem so "cut off" anymore. Best of luck!!!
