    Personally, I love it with the straps and I don’t think it competes with your reception dress at all!  My vote is to keep the straps. 

    Both dresses are beautiful on you, by the way.  🙂

    You are so gorgeous!  I prefer it without straps.  That first picture is amazing!

    It would probably be possible to make it strapless but you would have to round out the top of the bodice. Otherwise it’ll look a bit pointy and odd like it does in the profile picture. I voted to keep the straps.

    @aliciaspinnet:  +1 I would say keep the straps, otherwise you’ll need alterations. The side view of your dress looks a bit strange and awkwardly-fitted right now, without straps.

    Hard to say, without in the first pic looks lovely but it’s abvious the dress was’t made to take the straps away. I think the straps are more fitting for the ceremony too. You look great in both btw.

    First of all, you have a ridiculously hot body. Goodness. And both dresses are gorgeous (I esp. like your reception dress).


    Secondly, I say go for the straps unless you can fix the pointedness, the swwop, and the fit overall. The problem with going from straps to strapless is that the latter needs to have more structure/support throughout the bodice in order to hold the dress up. Currently, even if you fix the cosmetic issues, altering to a strapless would still leave the dress fitting awkwardly low and  not structured enough for a strapless neckline.

    both of your dresses are gorgeous! I voted with straps unless you can make it not look so pointy

    Both dresses are gorgeous — but I feel like your ceremony gown looks like it’s missing something without the straps.

    Oh, definitely keep the straps just for how they make your back look – so freaking sexy. 

    I must admit it was hard for me to really focus on the straps because I was looking at your fantastic boobs – and I’m 100% straight! You have a seriously smoking body!

    I agree with the others that the line of the side of the dress, as it is at the moment, doesn’t really suit strapless. Also it would make the back look odd.

    Also, if you’re wearing a veil and your hair down, they’ll be covering the straps anyway.
