    I like it either way, but strapless really shows off your shoulders!

    This was my runner-up dress and if I had gotten it, I would have gotten it strapess. That particlar strap on the dress didn’t seem fitting of a wedding gown to me; it reminded me more of a nightgown/slip strap, than one that would be on a bridal gown. Just my 2 cents 🙂

    That is my dress as well… I went strapless.  I felt more bridal in the strapless at my seamstress fitting.  

    However, I wished I kept the straps.  The dress was a perfect fit at my final alteration appointment but however, 3 weeks later at the wedding, my dress was gaping in the front more than my liking in some movements so I had to toss out some of the photos where it looked funny.  I was bummed because those photos were darn gorgeous except for that darn gapping sticking out at the bust.  I feel the straps would have hold everything in place since its a somewhat low cut.

    I plan to do a recap and a post follow-up on my alterations soon.  I am just waiting for more photos to come first.

    I think the straps are a nice detail.

    I prefer the straps. The v-neckline makes you look slimmer and taller. Plus, the straps are very thin so you can still show off your shoulders.

    I’m not a fan of the thin straps. I think strapless looks much better, and classier. I do like the thicker straps on

    Pepper15:  ‘s dress. Those seem more suited for the style of the dress, the thin ones look out of place.

    Strapless looks younger to me.

    Without the straps accentuates your figure more. I would do strapless.

    Strapless has been very trendy for quite a while, but straps of some sort seem to be more and more trendy. This dress looks amazing and on you both ways, but I think the straps do somewhat soften and narrow your shoulders and they balance out the whole look.

    Either way, great choice. You will look beautiful!

    jamie_lin: what about straps for the ceremony and strapless for the reception?  It looks beautiful both ways!
