I really wouldnt suggest doing your own beading on the back of the dress if you havnt had experience with this before. If you want more drama on the back how about adding a sash that has beading on the back like this one

You could also wear a cathedral veil with beading on the back

Could your mom maybe do a scalloped edge or some extra beading?

I love the train! It looks so lush! I would agree with the girls above but not that colour, maybe ivory or a slightly darker shade. If you want that wow in the ceremony wear a very long train I am!

Look for lace trim!!! on the net!


Another idea: I don’t know how to explain the image that I am also thinking about. I have seen it once on the back of a dress. It’s like sash is folded into layers all the way down the center of the dress.

I have seen one streamer stiched in the center running vertical down the back of the dress and that was quite effective. Looked but can’t find it now.

Your dress reminds me of Romona Keveza. Very simple and rich.

you could sew on buttons that match the buttons on the top of the dress all the way down the train to add some interesting detail without too much complicated sewing
