@Miss Circe:  beautiful dress. Is the top going to be ruched first and then have a lace overlay?

Wow but there’s some fab frocks here!

I adore dresses with straps. So much more flattering for so many brides. Over here in England, strapless dresses are in the majority but quite honestly, you have to have a very particular figure and a particularly well designed dress to carry strapless off perfectly.

It doesn’t help that our weather is universally unreliable in the UK but I’ve seen so many brides shivering in strapless white frocks and suffering from the accompanying blotchy effect that cold has on the skin or finding themselves constantly adjusting the dress lest they fall out of it. Or worse, as a friend of mine did, not realising just how much the corset boning would hurt – she was horribly bruised – or how much “overflow” was visible behind her. 

I’m totally not prudish or conventional about these things but I still get an awkward feeling when I see the pictures of brides getting married in church in what appear to be burlesque outfits given the amount of “frontage” they are revealing!

I seriously hope that the mania that the wedding industry has to pour everyone into a strapless dresses soon has its day.

@justjade:  Yes I think so Smile I’m changing it to have a drop waist as well. I’m really looking forward to seeing how it progresses – keeping my fingers crossed all turns out well

@eeruhlig:  

I love the straps/sleeves that people had added to strapless dresses!  

Straps or sleeves were a requirement for me when I began searching for a wedding dress too.  The dress I fell for was strapless so I’m having cap sleeves added! I look forward to seeing how mine looks, especially now that I’ve seen how amazing yours- and others in this forum turned out!

its so lovely to see all of the strap love on here!! the dresses are all stunning!!!

 

i knew i wanted some sort of straps – i think im too wide in the shoulderd to pull too strapless. i have no idea who the designer is – just that i feel like a princess in it! 🙂
