    I think it’s boring that EVERYONE has a strapless dress. I think the straps add uniqueness and they’re beautiful, go for it!

    I’m usually a fan of straps, but not with this dress. I’d leave it as is 🙂

    I think those straps would look really lovely with that dress, especially since it already has that beaded embellishment at the waist. I was very glad for the sleeves on my dress.

    It is a beautiful dress and looks great without, but I think you have the shoulders to carry off a nice strap like that.

    Who knows maybe your seamstress can make the straps removeable??? Then you could go without for the ceremony and use thme for the reception.

    I might add straps, but not necessarily blingy ones, just plain ones. I like for the bling to stand out on the waist alone. I love your dress! My sister tried it on and it’s stunning! So sophisticated 🙂

    If you do straps I would definately go with the blingy straps. I would try to keep the width the same or smaller then the bling around the waste.

    I think straps similar to that would be beautiful on that dress!!

    I think straps that match the embelleshment that is already on the waist of your dress would look great!

    I say leave the dress alone…it is so elegant and perfect as it is. Straps will detract from your gown, plain or blingy. Good luck!

    I think straps that matched the blingy waist would be gorgeous! But that dress looks amazing on you either way!

    Hmm… anytime I tried on dresses with spaghetti straps, I felt like they were there more for looks than support, or keeping the dress up.  I guess it’s a bit of an insurance policy, but if that’s why you want them, then I’d say no.

    But, if you just love the aeshetic, they’re definitely pretty!
