    i am really loving the bow! If you like the bow as well, then it’s definitely “YOU.” If you want to please everyone else, can you make the bow a little smaller? I’m sure it might be expensive to do that, but it could make everyone happy. Or maybe even make the ribbons under the bow not so big. I thinks that could be a big part on why everyone finds it to be so overwhelming on your dress. Good luck!

    Did you love the dress when you decided on it?  If you loved it, then trust yourself.  If you were on the fence about the bow and it’s bugging you, then your budget is the main deciding factor.

    Please don’t remove the bow, I really like it and it really adds to the dress. I’m not a fan of bows, but I do love this one on you and I love the way it really accents your waist!  Please don’t let the other post change your mind when you loved the bow in the first place!  If you were going to do something to it, I would maybe remove the 2 long ends, but LEAVE the cute bow and waist wrap around so you can see more of that pretty skirt.  But just know, you look beautiful!

    Personally – I’m not a fan of the bow.  I think it is too big and hide / detracts from the beauty of the skirt.  I think I’d prefer the dress without it but it is your dress and your day.

    I like it – don’t argue with the designer! It looks great!

    (Edit – I’m obviously not the designer, I just meant they knew what they were doing when they made it!)

    I don’t like it but I DO really like a sash on your dress/you.

    I think (if poss) you should keep that sash, get rid of the bow and put a nice jewel embellishment on the front.

    I like the bow, however it covers parts of your dress…

    My suggestion: Keep the bow, but make the ribbons shorter! 🙂 What d’you think?

    I love the bow! And more importantly you said that you like the bow – so I definitely vote to keep it! If you look confident and happy nobody will be thinking about the bow, they will just be happy for you.

    I think if you could shorten the trail on it. And some how get the loop parts to stay up.

    I too love the bow, but would get a smaller one, just a smidge! I keep literally moving my head around to try to see around it for the detailing on your gown! =) But I do love it!

    I’m not inherently anti-bow and think that that particular bow could be pretty . . . on a different dress. It just doesn’t seem to be in keeping with the material and style.
