Oh the dress is beautiful. 

The floating button thing isn’t something I’ve seen before but it’s cute. 

if you really can’t stand it couldn’t the just remove it?!

Just have the dress with nothing there?

Unfortunately with the delicate nature of the illusion I wouldn’t tamper with it, you would be possibly destroying an integral part of the gown. Just my two cents as someone who has worked in bridal for four years. I personally think the buttons have a traditional/classic look that compliments the moderna and contemporary look of the dress, you kind of get both the traditional and non-traditional.

I love all of it as is. What a pretty dress. I adore low backs.

I don’t “get” the floating buttons.  But, I’m no fashionista.  If you love it, go for it. If not, I’d nix it. It’s a beautiful dress!

I think the buttons are pretty weird too, but adding something sparkly instead won’t change the reason why, which is the floating-ness of it.  On the other hand, people get necklaces with a back that hangs down in much the same way and no one thinks that’s odd, so it’s probably not a big deal at all.

Overall it’s a really elegant gown.  How well does the netting match your skin tone?  That’s the only thing I’d be really, really worried about.

I think if you had a seamstress add a small beaded applique at the top, it would make the buttons seem more purposeful.

I am not a fan of the floating buttons, applique or not. It looks like a weird, tiny spine.

I think their option of using a different kind of button or with the applique look really great.  Otherwise, I still think the dress is really beautiful 🙂
