I personaly opted for a plain lace and tulle gown and I am going to pair it with a sparkly belt. I HATE when you wear gowns with beading and the beading gets caught on things, or when it hurts your arms as they rub against it!

@MASPA: Me too! The other way around though, my first dress is satin and has beading and my second is lace and tulle .

Personally I opted for a more simple dress. At first I was going to get AA Belle 217 with a heavily beaded bodice:
But then found a more simple dress with an attached beaded belt:
Even though I still second guess getting a simple dress, I know that in the furure when I look back I will be happy with my decision.

I’m not a super flashly person, and before I tried dresses on I was in the no bling camp. I wanted the detail to come from the sillhouette of the dress. All that went out the window when I tried on *the dress*… the only dress with a lot of beaing that I tried on, and it ended-up being the one. This is what I eneded up with: http://boards.weddingbee.com/topic/found-my-dress-sophia-tolli-salvadora#axzz2ZzLS2yKy
I almost didn’t try it on, because it didn’t meet my criteria of no bling, but I’m glad I did! I would say try on both and see what you like. It’s so hard to tell from dresses online, I think you really need to see them on you in person to know.

@DelreeseM: It doesnt have a name…but the designer is Dennis Basso and exclusive to Klienfeld NYC. So you would have to go to new york to get it unforutnately.

My SO says I am like a magpie because I love shiny sparkly things lol! I often wear jeans and embellishes tops on a night out too. Nedless to say my dress is in the sparkly camp. It is beaded lace but quite understated so it just shimmers in the light. I love it and it’s totally “me”.
On the other hand, I have seen some amazing dresses without it where the fabric draping is sensational so I think that, like pp’s has said, you just have to go with what speaks to you.

For me, I want a minimal bling, VERY well structured dress. I want to look elegant not like sparkly snowflake HAHA

I say go for all the sparkle! My dress was VERY heavily beaded and I do not feel like it took away from me at all. While it was shimmering like crazy in person, I found that in my professional pictures and videography it was very muted. Though I do have a few guest pictures where the bling is all you can see 😉 But I love this! My personality definitely matches a sparkly, blingtastic dress, and I certainly wouldn’t have had it any other way on my wedding day! I would say go with what YOU LOVE and what matches your personality.

I’d prefer beaded dresses but the amount of detail kept to a minimal.. the 1’s that are fully beaded turn out to be really heavy and tend to get caught on to the the skirt when I’m trying to de-poof or fix up the dresses…. its really awkward during dress fitting because I didn’t want to ruin the dress or damage it…. it all day possibly scratching myself or make marks on my arms..

If you like an embellished dress, go for it! But do make sure to wear the dress enough to feel comfortable with where the embellishments are placed!

It’s all just theory until you try the dresses on!
I didn’t have an opinion about beading going into my first appointment, but as soon as I had tried on a few blinged-out dresses it was clear that they just Did. Not. Look. Right. on me. I wanted a lace dress with a very second-skin mermaid fit, and it seemed that any sort of 3D embellishment added too much bulk on top of that. Even corded or re-embroidered lace felt too “bumpy” for my taste. The dress I chose has all-over Chantilly lace and point-d’esprit but the texture is very flat, almost like it’s painted on. I love it!
