    @amberkathleen:  I think with flashes and in pictures, beaded dresses does stand out more. Maybe you can opt for something in between? Like a heavily-beaded belt instead?

    I think alot depends on the theme, location, time of your wedding. For a morning wedding you would go more simple but for a night time glam theme you would opt more for beading.

    You can have both, you know. Part of looking good in your wedding dress is about how you wear it (and not so much the details). If you feel like a heavily beaded gown would outshine you, then go with the unbeaded. But, if you have the personality and presence to pull off a more beaded gown…then by all means.*

    *Disclaimer: I actually prefer simpler, unadorned dresses, where it’s more about the cut/fit/style details. So, I am in no way trying to talk down about people who don’t go for heavy beading/embellishments.

    I love bling, but I can’t stand any beading near/around my arms, or I get chaffed like crazy.

    I’m opting for super light beading, enough to add detail & bling without making me look like a christmas ornament!

    It all depends on how YOU feel in the dress. if you feel beautiful you will look beautiful

    @amberkathleen:  Not necessarily. The way you accessorize your dress also makes it more “you.” You don’t have to shy away from jewelry if you want to wear a beautiful blingy dress. πŸ™‚

    I’m a fan of embellishment, but I also love fabrics with ornate detail that speak for themselves – really delicate French laces, organza petals etc. Solution – I’m a two-dress bride, my first dress is lace/tulle and my second is embellished (beaded, embroidered).

    I wore a sequin wedding gown, so heavily beaded sounds right up my alley!

    Don’t worry about the dress stealing focus, nothing can take away from a glowing happy  bride πŸ™‚
