I am so confused! I have been looking for my “dream dress” for months now which i always pictured to be strapless. However I have seen this gorgeous dress, the detail on it is A-M-A-Z-I-N-G, but it has straps with a rounded neck!! It’s completely different to any dresses that I have previously tried and don’t know if the top looks too casual if that make sense?
Also do you think straps are for older women( no offense to anyone!) as I’m only 24 and I have a petite frame!Unfortunatly I didnt get any pictures of myself in the dress 🙁
The dress is the Mori Lee 1836. (Sorry the image is so big!!)
Please vote and tell me what you think!! xx

That dress is absolutely beautiful! I do not think straps are for older women- anyone can wear them!

That dress is beautiful. Definitely not and “old” thing to have straps. The prettiest and classiest brides I have seen have had dresses with straps.

So I voted that it’s gorgeous. But I have the same neckline so I may be biased…

Hmm… I’m not sure.
I think it looks a bit casual in the strap area. But I think most people will disagree. I think it’s just the idea of spaghetti straps; they always seem extremely casual. Like the camisole tops that girls wear. If they were a little different, I think it would be more finished/formal looking… probably just me though o_O

it shouldnt matter about the straps or not it matters how you feel and how your future hubby will feel about it… its your day dont let little things ruin it for you

I think that strapless isn’t so much “youthful” as “overdone.” You will look lovely and stand out from the crowd for going with something a little different.
I also think that a little more coverage usually makes for a more formal, rather than a more casual, look. Will the wedding be in a church? Straps/sleeves really are a better choice than strapless for a church wedding (all else being equal. I know it’s possible for some strapless gowns to be more modest than a sleeved gown with plunging cleavage, but, across the board …). If that’s not an issue, then go with the dress you love. If you love this one, don’t write it off because of the straps!

I think that it looks absolutely gorgeous as is. But you should definitely try something similar on at a bridal store to see if that style suits you.

It’s really hard to know if those tank straps will look casual on your or not until we see you in the dress, but in general, it’s a very pretty dress.

I love straps- I’m 22 and they were a must have for me. I think they are much more flattering than strapless

I think it’s very classy. I don’t think straps are for the older generation at all.
