I think thin straps like spaghetti straps would not take away from the absolute beauty that is your dress. If you feel more comfortable, go for it.

Also, you might have bad posture (can’t actually tell from this picture), but you certainly don’t have broad shoulders. Also your collar bones are fantastic.

Also also, I love this dress. So whimsical & romantic!

It is really nice strapless though…don’t worry!

You will look amazing either way.

Go with straps if you think you will feel more confident with straps 🙂

I hate spaghetti straps, but you could do a little tulle cap sleeve/strap.  I had removable lace straps made that I wore just for the ceremony.   I think it looks beautiful as is, though!

Straps, I love straps…they’re very refreshing!

However, NOT spaghetti straps! Do a tulle strap like the bottom of your dress. That’s what I had done to mine (photo below):

I think it’s gorgeous! But little cap sleeves, or ones that get wider of your shoulders and then narrow back down would be very pretty, and you could do them in tulle to match the dress. 

Can’t go wrong, either way! Why not have them made to be detachable? Best of both worlds.

Spaghetti straps say “90’s” to me. I would go with something more substantial or a tulle strap if anything. You really don’t need it though, you look great!

I think you should keep it as is!

It’s beautiful without straps! Are you going to be wearing a necklace??

Your dress looks great! I think the problem you have is that you have a lot of empty space on top, a necklace or something along that line would help fill up the space nicely. Don’t go with strap, your dress is very full on the bottom, the empty space on top helps balance out the dress.

Your dress is beautiful, but I feel the same way about myself in strapless, I’ll be adding straps I bet.  I love the straps on this dress http://www.saisonblanche.com/Fleur-by-Sasion-Blanche_p_412.html a little thicker than a spaghetti strap but kind of see-through with the tulle.  I think that would be pretty with your dress.  Which is gorgeous 🙂

I personally wouldn’t put on straps, if I had those collar bones, I’d show them off!!!

I agree about the necklace. If you tired a necklace, I think youmight find that would fill the space nicely. However, I am really a fan of straps and I think they could be really beautiful. Have the seamstress play with several lace options and see what you think
