    I LOVEEEE that floral satin sash! and the lace applique sleeves are gorgeous but i’m not quite sure that goes with your dress?  By the way I have almost the same veil! ๐Ÿ™‚

    Welcome! I think your dress is absolutely stunning! You really look incredible. I think the bling sash takes it from beautiful to Wow! I would have been so frustrated with the womano telling you there was no point in trying a sash, each dress looks different on each body. To calm your doubts are you able to go back and try it with a sash? It really is gorgeous!

    Another vote for the bling sash- I think it’s the perfect way to draw attention to the smallest part of your body and give you a defineable waist. The dress has amazing detail already, so I wouldn’t add anymore lace.  You look great in the dress- fantastic choice, really!

    I think your dress is gorgeous as is.   What about adding a beautiful necklace to give you some bling?

    Bling or satin sash for the win!  The applique straps are optional…it doesn’t really do anything to improve or diminish the look, but if you want straps, these are better than the cap ones.

    I love the lace straps, but I would go with a plain sash–grosgain or organza ribbon. still, even with neither I think you look fantastic!

    Absolutely love your dress on you and I think the bling sash really completes the look without competing with the lace and beading already on the dress. So that gets my vote. You look beautiful!

    First, the dress looks amazing on you! If you were to add a sash, my vote is for the blingy one. The two other sashes seem to detract from the amazing detail on the dress.

    I also vote for no straps because I don’t think they add anything to the “wow factor” of the dress; but if you want them for support reasons, then I would sugges the floral applique straps because they are pretty and dainty. 

    Good luck!

    I like it with a bling belt.  But make it a little thicker than the one in the pic.  I do love the way the dress fits you though.  And it def shows your curves!

    I think a simple, blingy belt would be the best for this dress design. It would definitely do a lot to accentuate your tiny waist! And I love the idea of adding sleeves. Don’t have dress regret–you look BEAUTIFUL!!
