    I think that since it is so structured adding too much bling would kill the look.  Maybe add to the threading only, and a little to the lace at top and bottom.

    I don’t think this dress needs anything more than what it already has. If you add too much "bling" it’s going to look gaughty.

    You can string on little ones of the AB crystlas. Or even the sequins. Mine has sequins which sounds super icky but they’re subtle bling. Originally i had told my mom i wanted more bling andw atned to add more. Now that a few months has gone by, i’ve decided that with my jewelry, hairpiece, etc, i got enough going on. I want peopel looking at ME sparkling, not my dress necessarily. I think your gown has a lot going on, but if you were going to add some, I’d place it carefully and i’d use specific AB crystals.

    tag117 is right. adding more than what’s happening now will make it very easy to look gaudy.

    There is no option for leave it alone, but that’s my vote. It’s already very pretty, why risk making it too much and regret it?

    I would replace just some of the crystals, the ones that go over the embroidered parts.
