It looks gorgeous as is. Let me add that I also like the sash just no stripes.

The dress look gorgeous on you. I would not add any beading to the neckline. I like the sash a lot though. As for the stripes, I am not sure. I like both with and without.

I like the belt, definitely no stripes!

No stripes. I think it’s too much (but then, I’m also not a fan of that Hayley Guindon striped dress). I am totally team belt, no additional beading. The bodice has that lovely crossover on the bust, and beading would take away from that flattering effect.

Maybe you can do no belt or a striped organza sash for the cermony and jazz it up with some sparkle for the reception? I think belts can be a pretty budget friendly way to change up the look of the dress with minimal commitment.

I vote for Glitzy Sash with no stripes and no neckline beading.

I like the dress with a sash but I don’t like the stripes. It looks great on you 🙂 (I voted for it on your other thread!)

I think–yes sash, no beading, no stripes, and I would leave the corset alone.   Your dress is beautiful on you!!

Sash, no beading, no stripes. I think the glitzy belt adds a nice pop, and will replace the jewelry. I agree that a zip covered with buttons would be really nice, I think a corset back on this is a little too much going on

I also like the stripes. Depends on the look you are going for and also your personality. The dress with no stripes is very beautiful, especially with the glitzy belt, but also very traditional bride. The dress with stripes is very bridal while at the same time different, unexpected and more couture. Do you wanna play it safe, or go for something different?

If you’re not 10000% sure about the stripes (which I do like), then I wouldn’t do them! I think you’d really have to be sure to be confident in your choice and pull it off. 

I vote no stripes, no neck beading, but yes to the sash! Looks gorgeous!! I think the neck beading will compete with the airy beauty of the dress, and the sash (if you do one).

I love the dress as it is, without the stripes or sweetheart beading. All that bad boy needs is a nice belt!

I think you should go with the plain dress (no stripes), beaded sash, and corset back.  Regarding the corset back, it definitely wouldn’t hurt to ask your seamstress what your options are for hiding the corset.  You could at least find out how much it would cost and see if it is an option for you.<br /><br />If you think that a fully beaded sash might be a little much, then why not look into ribbon sashes with beaded details like this:  https://www.etsy.com/listing/180659613/wedding-belt-bridal-belt-rhinestone?ref=sr_gallery_36&ga_search_query=ribbon+beaded+sash+white&ga_order=most_relevant&ga_search_type=all&ga_view_type=gallery<br /><br />That way you still get a little glitsy detail without it seeming overwhelming. <br /><br /><br />
