My dress was bead city! I love love love beading. I love the look of simple gowns too but I have so much appreciation for the intricacy and “work” that goes into beaded dresses.
There weren’t any rubbing issues under the arms for me because the cut of my dress (low back) prevented this from happening. I would definitely recommend avoiding dresses that have beading around/under the armpits even if they seem comfortable at the fitting.
In terms of how they photograph, I find that the sparkles don’t tend to turn out in pics unless you’re in specific lighting. Rhinestones look chrome and sequins and beads look flat so make sure you’re happy with the style and cut of the dress above all!

I loved my beaded gown! I added additional beading throughout the skirt and had swavorski crystals on my veil as well. They didn’t itch at all. The dress is heavy when you are picking it up but it didn’t feel heavy on me. I loved everything about it. Here’s a few pics.

My dress had beading on the bodice. The only thing that bothered me was the area under my right armpit. For some reason, the way it rubbed against my skin caused some irritation by the end of the night.

BEAUTIFUL!!!!! I am so glad to see a picture of someone wearing it in the beach, as that is where I am having my wedding. Was it comfortable during the ceremony?

All of these dresses are gorgeous! I love seeing what others have chosen! Mine has beading over the lace, but I don’t think these pics show it very well…

Yes it was!! VERY hard to pee but comfortable other than that :P. We had about 30 degree weather but with the water it brought the temperature down 5 or 6 degrees so I was perfect.
