    I would have preferred straps, but the dress that I chose did not come with straps and I think it would have looked weird if I added them.

    Fiance loves my shoulders and said he hoped I’d get a strapless (and I’m sure he doesn’t know about the trends), so even if it wasn’t the trend I probably would have gone with a strapless. My dress did come with a bolero that I’ll probably wear during the ceremony (I’ll do a poll one of these days, lol).

    I did not originally have a preference either way, but I loved the cap sleeves on my dress and I love that they set my dress just a little bit apart from all the strapless dresses out there. (Not that those aren’t lovely.)

    I had the choice of spaghetti straps but my girls are big and those suckers kill my shoulders.

    I find that since I am tiny on the bottom but huge on the top that strapless looks most flattering on me.  Not sure why but I feel good in it.

    @cincychick35: I’ve gone for strapless but tried this dress on and thought it looked great at the time but when looking at photos afterwards thought the straps actually made me look frumpy , well my arms look fat from the back

    I had my straps made to be detacheable. So no straps for the first look and ceremony; and straps for dancing. It was so easy and gave me the best of both worlds (for all of $5)

    I opted for straps–I think they’re my favorite part of the dress:) But I’ve seen a lot of brides with this same dress that took them off. This is the best pic I have of the straps on me…

    I have straps on mine. There would be nothing cute about me in a strapless dress…the girls would make a run for it lol. I don’t have any pictures yet though, its sitting at my mom’s house 900  miles away until I move 🙁

    I don’t have pictures on this computer but mine has straps. I find strapless dresses incredibly uncomfortable so I didn’t even bother going there. Nothing worse than hiking up your dress from the armpits the entire day. Lol.

    @aubiegirl: I love the dress – gorgeous.

    I anticipated buying a strapless dress, because I think my shoulders and specialladyfunpillows look great in a strapless style. But I ended up with a kind of v-neck dress. Oh well!

    @ohheavenlyday: Beautiful dress!!

    Mine is strapless.  I am usually not really comfortable with strapless, and I was SURE I would end up with spaghetti straps, but somehow my mom and friends talked me into strapless.  *sigh*  We’ll see how it goes.
