    I personally love 1 strapped dresses and am looking for one myself!  If you don’t like the strap, what about adding a flower or something to the right of your dress where the waist meets the flare?

    Ooh – its really pretty! I’m sure the strap would look great, but if you’re not crazy about it, I think that a nice necklace or even just a veil would add enough flare. I love the bottom and the train!!

    I think that your dress is gorgeous!  I actually prefer it without the strap, because I honestly think that the skirt of the dress is “flashy” enough to stand on it’s own.  

    As far as “is it THE ONE”, only you can answer that.  🙂  I will say that this dress looks really really lovely on you.

    It’s beautiful!  I think it would look fine with or without the strap depending on how you did your hair. Either way is lovely!

    its hard to tell only seeing the strap from the side and not the front, but from this angle, i would say on strap.  it looks like its too much. and with the bottom have all those ruffles, i don’t think you need to add more to the dress.

    I agree that with a veil and a killer necklace, the simple top will look great.  Gives you a chance to play with other accessories when the dress isn’t speaking the loudest.

    I think it looks good without the strap also, and I must say I adore the bottom of this dress, so beautiful. How about adding a sash or an embellishment at the place were a empire waist dress’s sash or embellishment would go. I think that would look really pretty.

    It so pretty!  I would forgo the strap and focus on a lovely necklace to draw attention to your face.

    I think the strap is way too much. : / I really like the bottom of the dress, but the strap is REALLY fluffy, REALLY near your face. It downplays your chest, and draws attention away from the stunning neckline. So I’d say go without the strap. If you really want to have a strap, I’d say try and jerry-rig one out of organza or something a little less…fluffy. If you’re going down the hair flower route, maybe try a fascinator that’s similar to the bottom of the dress? That would be a good way to help with continuity.

    As for dressing up the top of the dress, I really don’t think it needs anything! : ) It looks beautiful as is, but if you REALLY want to, maybe try pinning a fascinator on (like a corsage/bout), or wearing a nice little jacket/shawl overtop.

    I think the dress looks great on you- without the strap. Go for it!

    Honestly, I don’t think it’s plain at all – the asymmetrical waist and the skirt give it plenty of detail. I think that adding a strap might look kinda funky because then you’d have the asymmetry of the waist as well as the strap, but it’s obviously a matter of opinion. I love the dress as is, it is gorgeous!

    I love it on you. I did think the top was too plain, but because of the detailed skirt perhaps the top needs to be plain so it doesn’t take anything away from it. Are you wearing a veil? If so I think that will make your look and it will look balanced with the dress and compliment the top of the dress. Hope this helps

    Gorgeous! I don’t think it needs the strap. 🙂 You can always wear a nice necklace… but I don’t think it’s too plain.
