2YorkiesMama:  Congrats on finding a pretty dress at that price!

I do prefer most of your modifications.  I think the sweetheart neckline really changes and improves the look of the dress.  If you like the blush colour and it’s more you or matches your colours, I say go for it, but both work well IMO.  I prefer the crystal beading on the original sash, as the flower applique might be fighting for attention with your bouqet and it might just be a bit too much.  Is that the size it will be IRL?  You may want to try it on with a teeny hoop or some layers of tulle underneath for more poof.  Good luck!

2YorkiesMama:  I agree with PP. I like all the alterations except for the new sash. Could you do a pink sash and reattach the crystal applique to the pink sash?? Or maybe just another pink sash with different crystals? I don’t know to be honest but if the pink is more you, I would try to find a pink sash but without the floral details so it doesn’t clash/be hidden by the flowers you carry (or any other object if you aren’t carrying flowers). The dress is beautiful. I’m sure whatever you do your dress will be gorgeous!

I one hundred percent agree, I love all the alterations except for the floral applique, it just doesn’t feel like it’s working with the dress to me.

would you wear the pink sash on its own without the floral applique? disclaimer: im not a fan of beaded or fancy sashes particularly with lace. you’ll hae bouquet, jewelry etc, its enough going on. i like the pink though.

2YorkiesMama:  What a great buy!  I love the sweetheart neckline.  I like the pink sash, but I think a plain pink satin would be nice so it doesn’t compete with the other details.

2YorkiesMama:  Love all of youre alterations! Unlike previous posters I like the flower pink sash I think it adds a sweet bit of whimsy to the dress. 

Also I think adding a mermaid crinoline would defintiely give you the shape you desire. 

You’re totally on the right track!!

I prefer all three of your alterations. I wasn’t 100% sure about the floral applique at first but actually really like it and it suits the rest of the dress.

100% yes on the sweetheart neckline.

Get the pink sash added but maybe have the applique be pin-on-able? If you’re not sure about it.

Look into a slip if you want a more ‘flared out’ look!

I like the neckline alteration and the pink sash. The floral app looks a bit juvenille to me. It distracts from the prettiness of the lace in my opinion.

I agree with the other PPs! I love the new neckline, but I would prefer the blush sash without the floral element.
