    I think it will look much prettier with a sweetheart neckline. The current neckline looks a little harsh and a sweetheart neckline will help soften the look:)

    I think I prefer the sweetheart neckline.

    I usually stray away from neckline alterations, but I do feel like this dress would be gorgeous with a sweetheart!

    Sweetheart all the way. Much more flattering!

    I, too, am usually saying to keep a dress as-is, but I agree a gentle sweetheart neckline would soften this style beautifully.

    I have the san patrick resina myself and the neckline is similar…I think sweetheart neckline is given to much emphasis honestly, sure it looks nice but the gown you have is gorgeous the way it is because of the eyelash lace at the top (it is nearly exactly like mine).  I initially bought a dress with a fairly deep sweetheart and my chest drowned in it,….I’m personally leaving mine as is because its unique and beautiful.  

     

    Here is a pic of mine for reference…

    (fyi the cups look silly because I had on a reg bra with straps tucked in, my rack isn’t normally lumpy like that I promise LOL)

    There have been bees who have had alterations where they were able to keep the original lace edge detail

    Money Mouth@kaleidoscopicmind:  Hi dress twin! I just got my dress last week and got a quote for alterations O-M-G I’m having the sweetheart, low v-back, bustle and taking in an inch, sooo expensive!  Are you wearing a peticoat?

    I’m a Rivoli bride and I did both.  I kept the lace intact to act as an overlay and had the bodice cut to a sweetheart – Best of both worlds!  And it’s true, I don’t understand why, but my seamstress also had difficulties with perfecting the bustle for my Rivoli.

    @kaleidoscopicmind:  WOW!  the bottom of my dress is much bigger than yours and my bustle (a 10 point) plus all the other stuff (cups sewn in, side seams, length shortened and there are literally 10-11 layers under there to be taken in at waist seam) was only $425.
