I need some help!
I loooooove my dress (finally! after a terrible episode of dress regret) and I love it as a strapless but for the ceremony, which will be in a cathedral, I need some sort of shoulder coverage. Even just a strap.
This is my dress:
This is the back… I’m on a stool so I look crazy tall 🙂
I loooove illusion necklines too though, I just don’t know if it would work with my dress since there’s already so much lace already? And I’ll be wearing my hair down…
My veil will have lace trim from the hip down.
I could add an illusion neckline like this? In the form of a jacket that could be removed…
Or a shell jacket like this…
Or I could just add simple straps like this…
I think sleeves look really pretty but think it’d be too much lace? Especially with the lace trim on the veil?
PLEASE HELP ME!!!!! :)))

I would add a delicate cap sleeve so you’re covered but not too much. If your dress needs hemming then they can use extra lace from the length to create a matching cap that you can take off (maybe use snaps) for the reception then you’re not taking away from the original dress. I think an illusion neckline or bolero would be distracting from the beauty of the dress as it was designed!

I second the idea of a cap-sleeved keyhole back

Tulip Bridal does some boleros that create a keyhole back look.
The only concern I would have with them though – and any lace bolero, TBH – is matching the lace on the bolero with the lace on thedress, which would be near impossible.
I wouldn’t worry about it being “too much lace” though. Otherwise there’d be no dresses with attached cap sleeves or long sleeves – and we know that there are many dresses like that.

Alternatively (I know, more options!), you could try a non-lace jacket, if you didn’t want to try and match the lace:
This one is by Pronovias:

Lady, you look STUNNING in your dress! I love the idea of the illusions neckline, but really, you are going to look fabulous in whatever you add to it! 🙂

@AlicialovesJose: what about sheer tulle straps like these? as some people have commented, it might be hard to find the right lace to match and i think the tulle would be something to add without being too much lace.

Personally, I’d move away from lace and toward the tulle. A poncho or capelet would be so fashionable and elegant? Are you wearing a plain veil like the one in the photo?
Light in the box has so much stuff for cheap…
In all honesty, though, a tulle capelet or poncho would be about the easiest thing to make if you were feeling crafty. One or more layers of tulle cut into a circle, cut a circle for a neck hole. Embellish to taste…

I wouldn’t add an illusion neckline or the lace overlay since it would be lace on lace – too much lace. I think a nice strap like the first picture of straps would be lovely!
