I personally am not at all a fan of spaghetti straps and think it’d be a bummer if you attached them to this gorgeous dress – but a deeper sweetheart would be lovely!

no alterations. you dont need boobs to hold up a strapless dress, you merely need a well fitted bodice.

it’s gorgeous – don’t add straps.  I like sweetheart necklines so that gets my vote.

i say you nix the straps, as well.

and does your neckline already dip in a little bit? i like it like that.

my dress has a “semi-sweetheart”, i’m not a fan of the deeper dips but thats just me

gorgeous dress!

In my honest opinion I think alterations will ruin the dress. Its gorgeous as is

I think between the different textures on the dress adding straps willbe more challenging then it is worth.  I agree with pp that emphasizing the sweet heart a bit and just getting a very good alterations to tighten the bodice and it will look amazing.  I like the dress and you will be a beautiful bride.

Hi! Beautiful dress!  It looks great as is, but, if I were to add straps, I think maybe a soft halter going around the neck may look nice made out of tulle and a sweetheart neckline that is a tad deeper.  Just an idea.  Also, seamstresses can always add cups for extra oompf, if so desired.  You’re engagement picture is really cute, btw, you guys look great together!

I agree with the other bees: I would not add spaghetti straps to your gown.  If you want or need some type of strap or sleeve, I would consider making cap sleeves out of a similar organza (?) or chiffon (?) fabric that is ruched on the bodice of your gown.  Because of the horizontal ruching on the top of your dress, as well as the very eye-catching sash you’re wearing, I don’t think I would attempt to have the neckline changed in any dramatic manner.

I think a deeper sweetheart would look better than a V and show off what you’ve got– but I’d skip the straps, you don’t need them to hold things up, and the dress is already stunning as it is!

I think it looks great as is! You could always pair with a little lacy shrug if you feel uncomfortable.

I think straps would be too much on top of all the textures. I would leave the neckline as is. I think if you rouche* it more, it may look messy. Maybe add some push up pads for extra form. I used pushups and it looked natural still.
