Help, is my dress too plain?

A while ago I started dress shopping. Since we have limited stores here, I picked this one out visiting my fourth store, that was not an AA but this is still the dress I got:
We planned to have a beach wedding, so I thought this would be perfect. I had a lot of bling sewn on, so it looks prettier than in the picture.
However, now we're gonna have it inside instead.
I went to try it on again yesterday after it had been altered and I want to cry. I feel like it's waaaay to plain, but my options are limited.
Since I am a plus size bride, they dont have as many gowns to try on as for petite brides. And I refuse to buy a dress because it looks good, it might not be flattering at all on.
My dream dress is a typical ball gown, either lace or pick ups and big and poufy, everything this dress it not. I want more on the bottom and back.
I tried to let my sales consultant sell me another dress, but she and my maid of honor says this is right.
So now we are talking about adding appliques or pick ups, but I don't know what to buy to make it look right..
I am just so sad right now.
They told me to add a pretty veil and accessories but its still plain..
I look at other wedding dresses here on tpf and on other sites as well and I just want to rip my hair out.
I found a perfect dress at Davids Bridal but all the beading made my armpits hurt..
Any suggestions?
Oh, I nearly forgot to post the dress image.

Sorry you are feeling this way. I think the bodice could use some rhinestones maybe of some sort

I can totally understand how your feeling that its plain. I am a glitter freak myself. Also, I had a similar problem. I am not a plus size bride but I'm also not a petite bride. I'm a "fit" bride but not so fit that I don't have flab. So I end up looking fat in some dresses and not fitting in others. When I finally did find my dress, it was at a social work sale. They had dresses for $75, and only thing wrong were maybe a tear here and there. So my solution was simply finding a dress of the early 40s, 50s- which I did and look fab in. I would suggest that you should try it on another day, when your perhaps not so stressed. If you still don't love it, and can't afford a new one, then I would say to kick everyone out and really look at it by your self and think about what you could add or take away that will make you love it. Maybe adding a pettie coat under to give it a little poof? More bead work? A colored sash?Also ask yourself what do you all ready love about it? Good luck !
