It depends entirely on the dress and how the beading is attached.  If you’re going to go that route, take it to an excellent seamstress, and be prepared with a backup plan in case it doesn’t work.

I am having quite a few alterations made to my dress- it’s a Madeline Gardner- I searched the local knot boards and found a seamstress that came with many great reccomendations.  I can’t speak as to the quality of David’s Bridal, but I can tell you that when she took a seam ripper to my dress, I didn’t have a panic attack because I trusted all the positive reviews.  I have an amazing crystal sash picked out on Etsy- something like a Lazaro I fell in love with.  I am sure that you can find something that will add a bit more bling to your dress which then would cover up any remaining holes (as the rouching can’t be completely steamed out).  

Good luck!

I am having the seamstress remove all the beading for me.  I have no worries about hanging strings.

@cherryblossomlove:  Sorry to leave you hanging, been sick all week.  Yes, I am having Suzanne do it.  I actually asked if when ordering the gown they could have the designer/maker just not put those things on (save everyone the trouble) but I guess my line won’t do custom orders.  So anyway, Suzanne will be doing it for me.  I have total faith in her-another Bridal Boutique recommended her as a seamstress even.  Also I have seen some of her custom work for non-bridal gowns (http://ruffledblog.com/fashionable-modern-lds-elopement/) and I think she is really experienced and will be great!
