    I think it would be really cute if you cut the neckline down to where the beading was, and then add lace over the whole bodice to make it a high neck with a full lace back.

    I know you said you don’t like much bling, so this may be of no help….but It’s one of my favorites! Maybe it’ll strike an idea. I can’t finda a picture of the front, but this bride was all over pinterest.

    @justjade: 

    @edepp2010:  I remember this dress! If memory serves me correctly, there was a picture of the front of it in the “wonderxue” etsy shop. I think it had a scoop/round neck, with the same beading (bling?) around the front too.

    I love the polkadots. Maybe add some lace or lace applique to the bodice all around.

    I think a plain sash would be lovely – perhaps in an everso slightly more peachy shade than the dress.

    I like the lace idea how about a bow belt (bow being in the back) and since you said you aren’t blingy maybe adding some pearls instead somewhere on the dress

    I LOVE your dress!

    Have you thought about making the upper back lace? or front top lace? Or maybe a lace cutout on the back?
