    I think it looks very nice on you without the straps 🙂

    If your dress is fitted properly, you won’t be needing to pull it up all night. I had a strapless dress and had no problem in that respect.

    I am very pro strap!  I added straps to mine and think they would look great in your dress.

    I  like the straps.  I have a similar situation.  I didnt even think about spaghetti straps, but my dress came with some.  Now I am thinking about adding them.  I would love to know what you decide.

    I think this style doesn’t need to be added straps. The dress looks more nice without the straps because if the straps added, it will affect the radian of the neckline.

    You don’t need to add straps to stop the dress from falling down. When it’s fitted, you won’t need straps.

    But a lot of brides end up pulling on their dresses all night anyway, because they’re not used to wearing strapless. If you don’t normally wear strapless, and pulling up the dress would bother you, then you might want to. Or you can just wear strapless dresses around the house until you get used to what it feels like.

    I think it looks great without straps but if you’re more comfortable with straps than I’d say go for it. I personally don’t like spaghetti style straps as I find them informal (always makes me think of tank tops! Haha), if you did consider another strap style I would think halter would look awesome with your dresss though it may bring a vintage-y vibe to it. Good luck!

    If the dress is fitted properly, you won’t need straps. But if you really want them, I would have them be removable so that you can just add them for the reception maybe?

    wowza beautiful dress bee! I’d add the straps just for the “security” and comfort of it.

    I love the dress with added straps. But to be honest I am not a big fan of strapless anyway. However, I think your comfort should be the key. Have you ever had a strapless dress or even shirt before? I know I wouldn’t feel comfortable with strapless even if it was fitted perfectly. Maybe it is not a bad idea for you to try strapless shirt or dress before and see how you feel?
