    I would leave it alone. But on a different note – you don’t seem entirely satisfied with your dress (based on this and other posts). Are you thinking of looking elsewhere, or just trying to make the best of it? (I love it on you – I’m just trying to read between the lines!)

    i know this, um, totally disagrees with my prior post about shortening my own train, but i feel like there are SOOO many dresses out there, that every bride should be able to find her perfect dress without having to do too much to it.

    if youreally love the dress and want the lace, do it. but if you really just love silk-overlay, maybe you should keep looking for something that fits that bill more closely.

    I think you’d be taking a bit of a risk by adding lace to the dress.  Then what happens if you DO add it, and decide that it looks bad?  That would be really awful!!!!  Also, if I were not over the moon about my dress, I’d still be searching for the right one…it doesn’t have to hit you like a ton of bricks that it is "the one," but you do have to feel like a million bucks and the most beautiful woman alive in it…so keep that in mind!

    I agree with the others, and in particular with KatieBug – it is a big risk altering your dress in such a dramatic way.  It’s a beautiful dress the way it is.

    I agree that keeping your dress (relatively) the way it is would be a good idea.  The lace overlay is a fun idea, but I’m not sure how well it would work with the style of dress.  And I would think it would drastically increase the overall price of your dress!

    Have you thought about adding a ribbon to the waist (similar to picture #2)?  The picture is small, but it looks like it could handle a ribbon.  If you didn’t like the ribbon, it’s not like you’d ruin the dress.
