Can you achieve the vintage feeling by accessories rather then changing the dress? I think it would be a pity to make it strapless as I think the back is so pretty in its current style.

I think making that dress strapless would take away from it.  That dress is beautiful and there is a reason you chose it.

I love the first dress. It has a vintage flair to it with the detail on the back. I’m sure with a few accessories it would feel more vintage.

What about some seriously long pearls? that would be so fun and still add a vintage feel!

EDIT: What about smaller flowers? Those look pretty big in comparison to your inspo pics

@vans_marie:  What about a birdcage veil or a blusher? Not sure what type of veil you were planning to go with to start. Also adding a vintage looking hair comb would help. I’m going to do some searching !

@vans_marie: Perhaps you can pick flowers that are a little subtler? I think that arrangement would be too much for most dresses. When I see you dress, I get more of a Veronica Lake feel… I would go for sating sling backs and perhaps a hair broche that pins your hair to the side.

It’s a beautiful dress how it is, but if its not YOU, you can definitely make it more you! Taking away the straps and adding a lace bolero would definitely give it that vintage/romantic feel!

You could get a lace shrug or bolero, or add some type of belt to it to make it more like the dress you found on etsy.
