    Allie, the dress is beautiful on its own.  I think we all have a different opinion so you need to do what you like and the look that you're going for.  The applique is nice but it pulls the eye down, but a gorgeous necklace will balance out the bling.  I like the flower belt the best but it is a more simple look.  Whatever you decide it will be beautiful.  It's a great dress and compliments you wonderfully.  Go for what YOU like best!!

        Thanks all of you :)  i did try on a belt : but i am not a fan of it....something about it makes my upper torso part look "stumpy" (i'm weird I know)... here's another pic of a flower type of applique: i think it's cute .....and it doesnt over do on the bling.....

        Love the flower

        Plain! I love this dress I'm jealous of how great it looks on you . You could do a veil , jewlery or bouquet with bling !

        I like the dress plain but do it with some really blinged out jewelry!!  Your dress looks awesome on you either way!

          awww thanks girllllllss!! :) you are all so sweet.

           

          so the belt is ruled out

          the bling at the seam where the skirt flares out...is also ruled out...

          i think i shall go with the flower applique/brooch at the side....

           

          i think it's not toooo too much...it balances:

          Whoever said that the bling applique takes away the focus ...ur right....i think it kind of does....and because it's not centered it's kinda...off..sorta..kinda ... 

          The flower applique is subtle and nice but still enough bling to shut me up :P LOL

           

          alright!! i have decided....all your opinions helped :) THANK YOU!! :)

            Perfect choice bc I'm weighing in all late in life and was going to say- I love the flower to the side. I'm a bling bride myself but the dress is so gorgeous because of its structure. The appliqu© on the bottom throws off the dress for me too, but the side flower, since its off center, goes with the flow of the dress since it has the rouching switching directions, if that makes sense lol sorry I don't know the technical term. Your dress is stunning and it looks great on your figure. Congrats! How exciting! I recommend adding jewelry to your bouquet if you want fresh flowers or having a brooch bouquet!

              I think that's absolutely the right decision---the flower is the perfect compromise.  If you're looking for bling in terms of neckwear, J. Crew has some great pieces in the store on sale.  I just bought one for 75% off of the original price (in total)!

                I can FINALLY post my professional pictures! Our photographer took 4,000 between the wedding and the TTD so I couldn't decide but I tried to pick the ones that mostly showed my dress. BTW in case anyone is wondering- totally do the TTD. Our shoot was about 3 hours long, we enjoyed the alone time, I felt suuuuuuper sexy, we got amazing shots, and yes- the sand comes out because I wore my dress again at my AHR and I did not take it to the cleaners, I cleaned it in the hotel shower! GO FOR IT!!!!!!!

                 

                Here's my dress that I wish I could wear again. It looks different standing and sitting.
