    Those straps would look stunning on your dress! But your dress is absolutely stunning with or without the thicker lacy straps! Gorgeous 🙂

    I reallly like your dress the way it is. Since it’s a fuller on the bottom the thin straps on top just work for me. Love

    Just beautiful on you! I honestly like the thin straps a lot on you. The thicker will change the delicate balance, esp with that neckline IMO. 

    But I’m sure it will be pretty either way.

    i added straps to my strapless wedding dress. When i first got it altered they took quite a bit of train off and i saved the excess fabric. The seamstress used the excess train fabric to create straps for the dress, so it matched very well.

    I like the spaghetti ones, but I  think they’d look better crossed at the back. More secure feeling too.

    Your dress looks beautiful! I think it would look just as nice with either straps

     Yaay another Stella 6347 bride!!! :+)

    I’m worried too as the sample gown straps kept falling, but I figured was because too small and once in my size would be ok?? 

    Did you find once in your size they keep wanting to fall off your shoulders? :+(

    Heres me in sample.  You look GORGEOUS by the way!!

    elderbee :  ooh love this idea (I’ve got and gown and concern about the straps) you think that’s an easy alteration?? The straps on the gown are really very dainty and pretty would look great in criss cross in back! Thanks for the idea….mine will be in mid March gonna run it by my seamstress! :+)

    I’m not usually a fan of spagetti straps, but in your case, I think they look really good.  They give the dress a delicate feel to it.  And they look great on you.

    I think color might be an issue since there’s white, ivory, cream, pearl, and on and on and on! I would have whomever is doing the new straps definitely work on it in person so they match!

    I would look back at the Stella York ones- you mentioned that some were very thick.  They can be made thinner pretty easy and might give you just the look you like.  I think it looks great with any of the strap options
