Simple or Busy Dress?

I'm having my dress custom made. I told my dressmaker that I wanted a different material and ruffles at the bottom. BUT NOW.. I think I changed  my mind. The layers just don't speak GLAM to me. What do you ladies think?


My Dress is going to be a combo of these 3- Mermaid with a long (PUffy) train...


I m having my photo 1154868-1 The Bling and the Bow


I m having my photo 1154868-2The V Shape top and Bodice


I m having my photo 1154868-3The thick/layered material with layers at the bottom.


Should I just keep it all one material with the bling?

I wouldn't use more then one material! Simplicity is the new black. Bling it up as you wish but don't make it too much where you look back 10 years from now and say what was I thinking haha. I fell in love with this one dress that was CRAZY and my mom talked me out of it. Now I look back and thank her because the dress I ended up with is going to be perfect for my big day!

def. one material but question how much are you blinging it? one of those dresses you posted is in an aire barcelona and I was initialy going to wear an aire barcelona and those have a bit of jewelery under the bust and they have textural differences (mine the skirt had alternating swiss dot and lace soooo pretty wish I could have had 3 dresses) and even with that the jewelery looked very pretty so it depends on how far you are going.

Be very careful with how much bling you put on this dress. With the way you want it, I would suggest just a brooch. Anymore bling than that I believe will be too much. You don't want overkill. Also, when you look back in 10, 15, 20 yrs from now, you don't want your reaction to be "what the heck was I thinking"...lol

that's exactly what is stopping me from from making that final decision. I'm pretty fashion forward where in my opinion get away with crazy looking things but I don't want to look back at my pics and be like ewwwwww?! KWIM?


I want to bling the bottom of the bodice with a strand of crystals an possibly the top right underneath the boobies (sorry i don't know the official dress terms) and the knot on my bow...


 


is that still too much?

If it were me, I would either do the bling or the bow. Not both. For me, both is a bit too much.
