Oooh, I like the scoopy heart neck!  It’s pretty.  I think that it looks great without a bra, but for me that decision would be a comfort issue, not an aesthetic issue.  I can’t imagine going bra-less!

stunning dress! but if i asked for sweetheart, i would probably be a little disappointed in their rendition.

however, overall a very beautiful dress!

Just saw your earlier post.  I really like this, but if you’re not happy with it, definitely take it back!

Oh, I would definitely stick with it! I agree it doesn’t seem to be exactly what you asked for, but it is still absolutely gorgeous the way it is right now, and it is super flattering on you as well!

I have the same problem!  Have you talked to your mom or a good friend who really knows you well about your dress?  Because I really like that neckline, but it’s not what you asked for.  And if you are likely to wear it and be happy and like the fact that it loks a little different in your photos, then you should keep it.  But if you will spend your whole wedding day thinking "This is really not a sweetheart neckline" then it’s not worth it.

You might be able to get them to alter it so it’s more of a wide-set V.  Maybe something more like this one: http://www.designerwedding-dresses.com/dress-styles_clip_image001_0013.jpg

Keep us posted!

I think it looks lovely. It’s not quite what you wanted but you will still look gorgeous and radiant on your day. I say accept it and move on. Focus your stressing on the perfect earrings, shoes or table numbers. 🙂

I am not crazy about the neckline they did. I think I would like a sweetheart neckline better, and it doesn’t seem like it would be that hard to change it. I think you should bring it back ask for a re-do, if you’re not happy with it.

Oh wow!  That really doesn’t look half bad!  😉  I like it!  Not to mention it’s a bit different.  No matter how you cut it, sweetheart necklines are VERY popular these days.  If it still really bugs you, take it back but it’s really not necessary.  No one will ever guess that’s not what you told them to do to spice it up a bit.

I think it looks very flattering and pretty, even if it isn’t a traditional sweetheart neckline. I kind of like that it’s different–makes it look a little more customized.  Also, the dress is really pretty on you!  I say keep it–you’ll be a beautiful bride!

Ooooh gorgeous!!  The dress is beautfiul and WOW to your teeny little waist in that dress!  The neckline is more scoopy than sweetheart, but what do YOU like?  If its gonna be bugging you, then get it re-done.  Otherwise, I think it looks pretty good!

Im not wearing a bra either with my dress.  Dont need it!  If youre uncomfortable, see if cups can be added to the dress, but there isnt a reason to wear one with mine

I like it! It’s not what I would call a sweetheart but I like it. You look great!
