Definitely straps if you’re keeping the deep V otherwise you really would look naked on top. Very gorgeous dress btw. Now let’s see some pics of you in it! ๐Ÿ˜‰

@Riley85: Thanks, and congrats to you too! ๐Ÿ™‚


We’re getting married in Sweden, so I’m struggling with the plans for that – much more complicated than what I had thought it would be! And oh I wish I was in your shoes, already having a wedding dress! I’m still looking for one; I want sleeves so that makes it harder. But despite the difficult parts, I love wedding planning so far – have so much fun with all the DIY projects I come up with! ๐Ÿ™‚


Are you getting married in the city or somewhere else?

The straps are gorgeous! Plus, it saves on a TON of complicated alterations to make it a strapless gown. Keep the straps!

Keep the straps! The sweetheart is relatively deep and the straps make it just right for a hint of sexiness, removing them would be too much skin, IMO.

Keep the straps! I love me some straps, I was dead set on straps but ended up getting strapless go figure… but seriously straps are elegant and gorgeous!

Beautiful dress!  I think you should keep it the way it is with the straps.  I hate when girls do the dress tug up.

@Riley85:  KEEP THE STRAPS!!! My dress was originally strapless and I ADDED the straps! I got so many compliments on the straps, I think part of the reason being that strapless has be in style of quite some time now and it’s always refreshing to see something different!

KEEP THE STRAPS!!! Straps were something I really looked for in a wedding dress because of both the look and the comfort factor. I think yoru dress will look better with straps and you’ll be more comfortable and you can wear a bra with straps!

There aren’t enough brides flauting the straps these days. Those are gorgeous and I think you would be doing that beautiful dress a disservice if you got rid of them. ๐Ÿ™‚

I am a straps bride. I think it elongates a shorter girl. Looking at this dress I can’t see how they would alter it to a strapless sweetheart with this deep v without really changing it drastically. Keep it the way it was designed to be, it is beautiful
