IMO i dont think I would like halter straps on that dress. Does strapless just annoying you because youre worried about it falling down? If you just want more coverage have you thought about a bolero?

beautiful dress!! are you thinking of thick halter straps? cuz i was thinking it would be really pretty with those thin straps that are beaded, kinda like that beaded line on your dress.

I think it would look fine, but it might be easier to find a dress that was meant to have a halter top?  and have you tried on dresses yet?  I never thought I’d want a strapless but mine turned out to be!!! =)

P.S.
LOVE this dress!

I don’t think I personally would like a halter strap on that. But if you must, like krista24 said…a thin one might work?

I don’t know if this is the right dress for a halter strap…  It’s hard when the neckline is just straight across.

I agree that it doesn’t look like the right neckline for a halter. Have you thought about think spaghetti straps? That might look a little better, but in all honesty, I think it’s beautiful as it is 🙂

Are you absoultely set on that dress? Its a beautiful dress, but I think addings straps may take away from the dress. There are plenty of beautful dresses with straps. But if you love that dress and like the idea of straps with it, go for it!

have you tried a strapless dress?

i’ve been wedding gown shopping with my friend she’s getting married a month before me. she was like you, she wanted something with a straps, any kind of straps as long as there are straps. then, one day, she took the courage and tried on a strapless gown, ever since that day, she’s been looking for strapless gowns 🙂

give it a try, you might just fall in love with one!

I dont really like strapless very much either,… but i fell in love with a dress and of course it was strapless, so i found a cute tulle bolero with lots of beading from alfred angelo. I felt more “secure” in the dress.

I think that would work just fine with a halter strap as long as the fabric matched the rest of the dress. Your seamstress can probably just tweak a little off the train.

If you can, I would suggest to continue looking for a dress that is already a halter.  Sometimes your vision and a seamstresses vision are not always the same.  Since this is a part of the dress that is so close to your face and will be front and center of all pics you want it to look perfect. 

 I tried on a REALLY beautiful halter dress.  It really looked stunning on.  It did not end up being the one but if you can find a sample I suggest trying it on.  My mom LOVED this dress.  (The model does not do it justice.)http://www.casablancabridal.com/collections/view/4/70
