    That’s my dress, too! I’m thinking about having the length cut off from the hem turned into removable straps. I love the strapless for the ceremony, but I’m a little worried about the dress falling over the rest of the day. The image I have in my head has straps that are gathered in the front and spread out a little wider in the back. I don’t know if it’ll be possible; I haven’t had any fittings yet.

    I tried on that dress too.  IIRC, it’s pretty structured in the front, so you shouldn’t have to worry about it falling down. What about a bolero?

    Loved that dress when I tried it on! Just in case you’re wondering, it’s very structured. Plus, if you got it with the bodice, it helps keeping everyhting in place. PLUS the dress is super light. So you’re right when you say it’s more about the looks. 

    I have the same dilemma with the strapless. For that dress I’d do spaghetti straps. Something really delicate that doesn’t outshine the dress. AND you have a beautiful neckline and shoulders, so don’t hide them!

    I think cap sleeves or beaded spaghetti straps would look really nice.  Definitely do two to keep things symmetrical.
