So, I purchased my dress (and sash) kind of on an impulse. I only paid $100 for the dress, and $60 for the belt and the dress is now $250 from DB. This is my second wedding, I gained a lot of weight during my pregnancy and I’m not happy with myself.
My plan was to dress up the dress with earrings, a birdcage and cathedral veil, bracelet, and then to change the one shoulder to either be flat with a crystal applique or flatten out the strap and put puffy flowers across the shoulder.
My bouquet will be fuschia, pink, and ivory.

I think it’s beautiful minus the puffy thing (don’t know what it’s called, lol!) on the shoulder strap. I like your crystal applique idea, that would look much better!! 🙂

I do agree with changing the shoulder strap so that it’s flat. IMO the ruffles are too much.

I’ve been married once before and I did a strapless dress and almost kept falling out. It was horrid, so I really didn’t want strapless again. But to be honest, I’m considering taking the strap off entirely if possible.

Daenaria727: I think you look lovely and that dress is very flattering on you! I actually kind of like the shoulder as it is hehe but I think ur ideas are great! I’m sorry you are feeling doubt tho 🙁 the cool thing about this dress is u can really make it your own with accessories! I really like your idea for a birdcage veil as well !

I agree with PP, I think the feature on the shoulder is nice! It would be too plain without it, imo. When you’ve added accessories it will be gorgeous!

I don’t see anything wrong with it. It isn’t my style but you need to remember that you picked that dress for a reason! I think that the real issue is that you aren’t happy with your weight and I understand how that feels….

I think you look lovely. The dress just needs altering so it shows off your waist better (it’s too big for you) and it also needs steaming.
I actually like the strap – it gives it a designer feel. But I agree with flattening it out – maybe removing the bottom layer of the strap.
To be honest, I don’t really like the belt with it though – I think it might suit a slightly wider belt in the same colour as the dress. So rather than adding bling to the strap, I’d see about getting the most amazing belt you can afford.
