@MrsRevolutionize:  Gorgeous dress!

I think (as a former costumer) that adding straps should be VERY easy! Lace or beaded or tulle.

@MrsRevolutionize:  beautiful dress!

I added straps to the original design of my dress. I love capsleeves and It helps to “balance” my look since i’m a bit bottomheavy

I added straps to my dress as well since I just don’t feel comfortable in strapless dresses either. Here are the designer’s stock photos, and then some of mine with the straps added.

 

The front and side views are from an earlier fitting but those didn’t really change at all. The back is from the final fitting. I picked it up this week and am really excited on the whole…but I have a tendency to nitpick and be overly critical so I still have a little hesitation/reservations about how the straps turned out. Hopefully day-of with hair, make-up, and excitement I won’t think twice about it!

@MrsRevolutionize:  Ooohhh… such a pretty dress! I’ve found (at least when asking at bridal salons) that most dresses actually come (as if they send it along with your dress) with tiny spaghetti straps at the very least that you can attach if you so wish. And that’s what I did! I just added the tiny straps that came with the dress so that I could have a bit more “stapped-to-my-body-ness”. It’s that little bit of a help that will keep my dress from falling down all night while I boogie on the dance floor. 🙂

Here’s my dress without straps (and in a size that obviously does not fit me):

And here’s my dress with spaghetti straps (and not altered yet):

I added straps to my Martina Liana dress and I loved them!

My Maggie Sottero Karena was orignally halter.  Changed the straps completely…it actually looks like the Karena Royale with straps added.

I’m interested in seeing these as well… I’m considered a bolero for the church portion.

My dress was from Casablanca too. Since I wanted straps (and it was originally strapless), the owner of the bridal shop told me about how Casablanca lets you combine dresses and helped me place my order with the top of another dress. I was really nervous about how it would look, but it turned out even better than I could of imagined.
