I want to add bling…any suggestions or anyone that has done it to this dress???
Has anyone added beading all over to lace before? If so, how much did it approx cost?
What piece would you use in center? what coloring of stones? Or just beading all over?

This dress is brand new within the past 2 months so I doubt anyone will have pictures of added bling throught the dress or anything like that. This dress is the non bling version of Allure c200, however c200 doesnt come in that beautiful champagne colour! Just a bit of advice, which you do not have to take if you disagree, but this dress is a standout because of the champage colour and soft lace, adding bling everywhere on the dress will make it alot more busy and possibly too much. A beautiful full bling sash will define your waist and break up the lace.
Cost of adding bling can be very expensive depending on how much you want but look at shelling out at least $600+ if you are looking for someone who will do an amazing job (and the beading won’t fall of half way through the night).
Whatever you decide I must say you look absolutly STUNNING in this dress

Thank you sooo much for your advice!!!
Few more questions…if you have time!
What if I did a subtle adding of beading all over…maybe each middle of flowers? Do you think it will still give it away? The champagne color is what wins me over, however, with my venue I just wish for sparkle picks up throughout the dress similiar to how they have on every 3rd button on the back. They dont even have to be as big oc clusters. Any advice super appreciated!
Do you like the applique used in this photo or think a different one? I am not a fan of belts – so looking for something without the band or belt effect.
Thanks again!!! 🙂

This is a beautiful dress- and you look amazing in it!! If you want more bling.. accessorize! Get an awesome head piece, sparkly shoes, add sparkle to the veil, wear long dangly blingy earrings, or a bracelet on your right hand… I think the dress is perfect as is, though. If it aint broke… don’t fix it!

@Forever23: Hi! This message is probably a little to late but I have the perfect idea for your dress! I dont think you should wear a belt, you should just add in crystals in the middle of the flowers, itll be subtle but still pick up alot of light and look blingy when you walk and dance. I also think you should add some crystal beadings on the edge of the sweetheard neckline, I think that would be gorgeous! and ofcourse, accessorize and it will all fit in!

I am about to order this exact dress, but I was wanting a deeper Sweetheart neckline and add a panel to fill in the shear part…. Which you have already done! I also want a little bit sparkle added to the top. Did you have the dress altered for the sweetheart neckline, the paneling? What did you end up deciding on the bling?
I don’t think I know anyone with the exact same taste as mine, but you sure do!!

Hi! That was a sample dress. I did end up buying the dress. I have not filled in the slit yet.
I am torn. I have my 2nd fitting coming up. We did a make shift fill in for the 1st one and I almost thought it became boring. If you add bling – def. fill in the slit. I tried on a lot of different bling and in the end …I decided it took away from it which is CRAZY as I LOVE BLING.
I think i am going with very blingy jewerly, shoes and veil — all sparkly! Then leave in the slit. I am bringing all my shoes and jewelry and veil to the next fitting to see if I like that idea. IF not – then I will go back to filling it in and adding bling. LOL
It is such a beautfiul dress!!
