Hello everyone, I’ve done an extensive amount of researching and I can’t seem to find the dress I am looking for. I will admit, I am being picky. But don’t I have the right to be?! After all, it IS my wedding day!
I am looking for a lace, NON-strapless dress. It seems like a majority of the things out there are strapless so that already makes things harder. As if I am not limiting my options enough already, I am only 5’1″ so poofier dresses tend to look better than the sheath ones. Has anyone seen any nice lace, non-strapless, a-line dresses around?
I need all the help I can get! Thanks!

@eliiizabeth: Have you gone to bridal stores to try on dresses yet? I had my heart set on a similar look but when I started trying on dresses I realized that wasn’t what I wanted:)

@franstef: Agreed, go shopping! Maggie Sotterro and Casablanca are two very common designers around the Bee. It might be a good place to start your search.
I have a lace, A-line Casablanca, but it’s strapless.

@eliiizabeth: Keep in mind that you can add straps to strapless dresses, too.

How many have you tried on? Is there anything you liked, but wasn’t really “the one”?

it might be worth trying on some strapless lace dresses and see if you can have sleeves added.. or wear a lace bolero/jacket type thing

@eliiizabeth: Local stores are always the best. If there’s any designers you’re particularly interested, use the store finder feature on their website (they almost always have one) and find a store that carries them! Or just start Googling “bridal salons near *where you live*” and visit them all.

HERE ARE A FEW I CAME ACROSS….
Also If youre still not having any luck, perhaps there is a strapless lace dress out there that you love or really like, ask the consultants about possible adding straps? A lot of people dont realize that that are so many changes you can make to a dress to really make it yours. You just have to ask.
