    i LOVE lace.. but I have to agree with you that on this dress, yoy might look better minus the lace. I think the lace has just been placed on the dress and kind of distracts from the silhouette and cut of the dress. Is the lace also a different colour to the dress? in that pic it looks like white lace over an ivory/champagne dress which is a bit distracting. maybe remove the sash part along the skirt but leave the bit at the top?

    i think it will be pretty either way, but if you don’t want the lace, don’t have it! i definitely don’t think it’s too simple that way, it’ll be nice.

    I think that the dress is beautiful as is, but you should do what makes you happy.

    I like the lace personally but do what makes you comfortable.

    I think the lace looks out of place on the dress.  It’s distracting and kind of awkward to see it hanging across the skirt like that.  I would remove it, and I don’t think the dress would be too plain without it.

    ETA: I like the lace at the neckline of the dress though – I would keep that.

    I am a lace person…but for some reason on this dress I think it would look beautiful withought the lace going from the hem up. I think all it needs is that little bit at the top of the dress…..it looks beautiful on you!

    I would take the lace off of the skirt and keep the lace/embroidery on the bodice.

    I agree with Tulip61110. Lace can be such an elegant and pretty part of a dress but for some reason (and strictly my opinion) it doesn’t look right on this dress. I would nix it. Do what makes you feel comfortable not what everyone tells you or likes (i.e. family) because this is YOUR day Laughing  I love the top of your dress and rouching!

    First of all—look at you Miss Hourglass Bride! I wish I had a figure like yours!! You look fantastic 🙂

    Second–I think I agree, I think the lace needs to go–if it can. I love the top of that dress and the way it gathers on the side but I do think the lace doesn’t add to the dress like it should or was intended.  I don’t think the dress is too simple without the lace–but then I might be biased because I don’t have a lot going on my own dress either–but I am a girl who loves lace and initially thought I would have a dress with lace on every inch.

    Again, like the other girls have said, do what you want and wear the dress how you want to wear it.  The other people will get over it and you’ll look fantastic on your wedding day!
