    I knew I wanted a dress with straps, so I know how you feel, BUT you look absolutely stunning in that strapless dress. If I could pull off strapless like you, I probably would have!

    I think strapless gowns are a bit overdone these days, I am all for you adding straps! As a few PP’s have mentioned, though, you should definitely go with your gut feeling rather than what a bunch of strangers, well-intentioned though we may be, post on an internet forum.

    One suggestion I would make to you: have your seamstress do a mock-up of the straps you are thinking of getting, with inexpensive fabric, and then try on the gown with the mocked-up straps pinned on it so that you can really see how it will affect the neckline, your shoulders, etc. (Try it on with the pearl necklace, if possible). That way, if you don’t like how the straps ultimately look, you can be confident in deciding not to get them – and if you do like how they look, you can be confident about how they will look once they are made up in the real fabric and sewn in place.
