No stripes. Beaded sash and leave the corset back.

LOVE THE SASH! It makes the outfit complete and takes the attention off your top.. it also adds the wow factor every bride wants on her wedding day.

Glizty sash, corset back and no straps 100 percent.

alibc:  I think pretty much any color sash will go with your dress, but especially the black. Besides, if you have some black accents in you wedding the black sash will fit right in!

alibc:  If you ask the shop when ordering, the designer can most likely add the buttons at that time. If not, your seamstress definitely can! (plus it would probably be cheaper)

As is! No beading, stripes or sash! Get a beautiful statement necklace!

My fashionable sil saw and fell in love with the striped dress while helping me dress shop.  Unfortunately we are 10-12 hours away. It is a beautiful fashion forward statement dress. It is so distinct,  I think you need to find the closest shop that has it in stock and do a road trip. (My one concern is that in a few years you may wish you had chosen the plain fabric as the stripes might date the dress. ) I like the a sash or belt with either dress, but no bodice details. I think it looks like an afterthought and like it might itch.

If your sweetie is wearing a suit, you might want to look at shadow stripe suits.
