    You look stunning in that dress!  I prefer it with the back lowered, but have you decided what undergarments you’re going to wear on your wedding day?  That could determine whether or not you are even able to lower the back.

    ETA: When I say prefer, I mean marginally prefer.  Both you and the dress are gorgeous in all the photos, and I agree with PPs that you really can’t go wrong either way!

    I actually love it so much more with the back the way it is now! That is one gorgeous dress!

    It’s beautiful either way, but I love the shape of the v with the back lowered. But whatever you decide, it looks gorgeous.

    I like it much better as-is, personally.

    It is perfect as is!!! It will also keep it nice and tight around the bust 😉

    I think you may face some structural issues if you lower the back of the dress. I would keep it as it is. It’s beautiful.
