@justjade:  that sounds like its shaping up to be a seriously gorgeous dress! So many different aspects to think about. I love the idea of the full lace back, but the cowl is also gorg. So hard to choose! Personally though, I feel the buttons might be a bit out of character… Particularly if they don’t really serve a purpose. Not sure about neckline…a deep v or a scoop would be great.

@justjade:  I think it looks beautiful as is (bateau neckline and original cut-out back)! However, if you’re intent on switching it up, I like the lace back as well.

ETA: As for bling, I think blingy earrings would be better than adding a belt. Is there bling on the shoulders? That could also be another way to incorporate it.

Its going to be gorgeous!  I would keep it simple… Lace or cowl or buttons.  One amazing focus detail makes for a better design especially when you have such as simple sleek silhouette.  

For the front neckline you could try a kind of sweetheart shape, similar to Claire Pettibone Chantilly?  Or a v-neck would look great as well.  Bateau necklines are not the best for a larger bust so kep that in mind as well (not sure what you’re dealing with!) 

For bling, agree that you could use earrings or maybe a hair comb for the sparkle effect.  Or, some very fine and simple beading over the lace?  That’s what im doing with my dress, just enough to give some shimmer when it catches the light, without being too heavy or sparkly. 

Have fun creating!!
