Okay, I love my dress to pieces. Only thing I keep going back and forth on is the straps. Sometimes I like the lace looking leaves, sometimes I don’t. I’m debating whether I should alter them to plain spaghetti straps. My mom loves them as is but I’m not sure. I feel like the original straps are too in your face and they take away from the lace on the dress and the belt. Or maybe I’m just thinking that’s the case… I dunno.
What do you guys think? Which looks better?
And here’s a pic of how I’m thinking of changing the straps to. I randomly found it while googling the topic.
Which do you like better and please explain why?

I voted original straps because I’ve never like spaghetti straps… they look like a bra to me lol.

The original straps are beautiful but I think it looks a bit too busy with the detailed straps and the large floral belt. It would look better with the spaghetti straps. Or you could keep the straps and switch to a more simple belt.

I love the detail of the original straps. The spaghetti straps look like they don’t belong, and take away from the look. I think it would be a huge mistake to change them. Love your dress!

The original straps are better.. The spaghetti straps look as though they don’t belong to the dress.. The original ones give this beautiful finish to the style of the dress..
Don’t change a thing! Your dress is so pretty as is!

I love the original straps. I don’t think they take away from the rest of the dress at all.

Original straps! They actually aren’t too wide/obtrusive. Spaghetti straps look too informal for a wedding dress..

I would change the straps – not to spaghetti strap though…maybe to a thin (but wider than spaghetti) lacey strap without all the leaves popping out.

I like the original straps, but I think the belt is too busy. I would change it to something simpler.

The originals are stunning! I don’t like spaghetti straps. I think they press into the skin and create a dimpled effect unless someone has no body fat whatsoever.

OMG I love this dress! Unfortunately with my figure I cannot pull it off. You however look stunning in it. I absolutely think you should keep the original straps, this is one of the main reasons I love this dress!!!
