Hi Fellow Bees,
I have purchased the Wtoo Celestine along with a fabulous belt (pictures below…. i promise it looks much better now. Pictures are from when i ordered the dress.)
Here is my problem: I really wanted to add a removeable strap(just one) to the dress. I need some ideas. My orginial idea was a strap with some chiffon flowers on it;however, that will not work with the beaded belt i have purchased. I have also thought about using the belt for the strap.
On a side note: What do you think about changing the neckline to a sweetheart? Do you think it will work it is a chiffon top?
Any help and suggestions will be greatly appreciated!!

Hi, I’m thinking about doing the same thing with my dress (add one strap). So I contacted someone on Etsy.com who actually creates one (or two) straps. She’s done it before. I’ve been talking to her, she was super nice, but to be honest, I haven’t been able to make a decision :p The quote she gave me for the strap I wanted in organza and the same diamond white color as my dress, was about 120. Like I said, I’m not sure yet weather I want to add the strap or not, I would love to, but I’m not so sure it’ll look good on my dress and I don’t want to pay an extra 120 for something I may end up not using.
If it helps, here’s the website:
It doesn’t have to be like that strap, but the seller would work with you, to make it how you want it.
You could also talk to the person who is making your alterations and see what she has to say. You can even ask her to pin a piece of fabric or the belt to see how it would look as a one strap. I think that’s what I’m going to do once my dress gets here.
