    I love the criss-cross straps. It gives a bit of intrigue to a simple, elegant dress!

    I like the criss-cross or thicker spaghetti (maybe something that tapers). My worry about the lace is that it might get itchy in the heat??

    The criss-cross would look great! Lace may not be as breathable, even though it is sheer, especially in high humidity heat.

    Personally I find the criss-cross straps a bit dated and not romantic enough for a wedding gown. I think lace or tulle cap sleeves would be lovely, or otherwise go without. If your dress is fitted properly, you shouldn’t have a problem with it falling down.
