One of mine is strapless, but will have a lace coat over top.

My reception dress is being created as I type!  I am adding sleeves and whacking off the bottom to make it a swing dress (50’s style!).  As soon as it’s done I will post pictures!

I should have thought of posting this before I bought my dress. I HATE strapless dresses. Could be that I have big boobs and they just never fit right. Here is my dress:)

@MASPA:  I love yours.  I meant to respond to your dress splurge thread!

Here’s mine:

 

My “dress regret” dress that I sold (I still like the style, but it wasn’t as nice in person and I decided against having so much dress on for my half-outdoors Vegas shindig) also was not strapless.  Strapless is fine, and I tried on a couple that made it to the short list, but I wanted something more unique, and it seemed like 99% of the gowns on the racks were strapless.  One shop owner told me that girls come in with lots of ideas, but she ends up selling the same A-line strapless dress all day every day.

Here are a couple more non-strapless dresses that I loved when I was doing my shopping.  They aren’t the latest lines b/c this was last year.

Mine is strapless, however I am having a lace overlay made for it similar to the one below which will be removable. In the pic there is a shawl (which I ordered for the seamstress to make the jacket out of) around me to give a small idea of what it will look like.

@stargurl101:  Both are beautiful.  I loved that Rosa Clara, but thought one might need Kate Moss arms to pull off.

I’m glad to see this thread! I don’t know if this is just a uk thing, but everyone seems to have a strapless dress these days, so much so that every wedding I’ve been to I haven’t noticed a difference lol.

However, since Kate Middleton got married I should imagine that may start changing. Not sure whether that’s a good thing or a bad thing for me as on one hand I was thinking I might be a bit unique by having straps/sleeves but guess by next year it might be the other way round haha.
