i chose allure 8755 and i love it. i altered the neckline to a sweetheart and changed up the strap a little bit…but throughout this whole time i can’t decide whether to keep the strap or take it off. i’m afraid of being it being too much of a ‘trend’ and i have always pictured myself wearing a strapless dress. on the other hand, it is unique and i don’t know of many brides who have this style. let me know what you think!
p.s. it’s still in the process of alterations!

Keep it, it is beautiful and unique. I think it adds to the dress which is simple and elegant.

Keep it! The strap makes the dress! It’s BEAUTIFUL!

Keep, I think it balances the dress and adds a perfect amount of unique detail and sparkle 🙂

@greener11: Stunning dress. I couldn’t decide for a minutre between whether to have the strap or not. In the end I decided on no strap…

The strap is the detail that really makes the dress, in my opinion!

For what it’s worth, without the strap would beg the question – would you desire a belt at the waist then?

I think it TOTALLY completes the dress. Otherwise, I think it would look like a totally different dress if you took it off.
You look great, BTW!

I say keep it! My dress will have one shoulder strap & I worried about it being too trendy as well, but I think it totally makes the dress.

I don’t usually like one strap dresses, but I love this look! I voted to keep it.

It’s pretty, but I’ve never been a fan of one shoulder dresses. I have a thing about symmetry. I agree that without would be more timeless, but it certainly doesn’t look bad with it. Follow your heart, I don’t think you can go wrong either way. It is unique, but a cool blingy belt could be awesome too.

Normally I don’t love one-shoulder dresses, but I’m making an exception here. 🙂 I think you rock it, and it elongates the line of the dress, making you look taller.

thanks for all of your comments! i thought about a belt, that was my other option i was thinking of! but it’s a corset back and i don’t want it looking funny back there. i have found some on etsy that can be custom made so my seamstress can sew it on. it would be a whole new dress then!

@greener11: You should know that what people are telling you is that not every girl can pull off a one-shoulder dress and YOU are doing it! The belt thing? It’s super trendy now and looks great on, but why not go for the more unique? You look fabulous!
