One final detail before I order my dress online!!
The waistline of the dress…should I stick to the original inspiration:
Or like this with a taupe coloured sash: just s strap or with ribbon
Or like this:
And also, do you think I should have beaded french lace or non beaded? TIA!

I voted for the original waist, because I think it’s most versatile. You can always add a taupe satin ribbon later, if that’s what you decide? I also prefer the original waistline versus the slightly dropped waist style of the third photo, I think the belt makes the dress more flattering. Also if you wanted to add a sash later, I think having that lace scalloping peek out from underneath might look a bit awkward.
And finally, re the beaded lace versus unbeaded – do you have swatches of what the beaded lace would look like? Is it crystal beaded or would it be tonal beading? I am all for embellishment personally, but it depends on the quality of the beading.

I came across some Lazaro gowns and saw this beaded bodice and am in love!! I’m not too sure about incorporating beading in lace though..maybe its either just lace or beading. I dont want it to be too much.. But beading might not suit the chiffon skirt bottom..

I agree with peonyinparis: stick with the original natural waist, and add a taupe sash later (I think the photo you posted looks really pretty). I don’t like the lace-style bodice in the last photo you posted because it looks too unfinished to me.
I do think beading can look great with a chiffon skirt, it all depends on how the beading turns out. I think delicate beading can look quite pretty with chiffon (and without looking out of place). It tends to look more grecian goddess or 1920s-inspired to me (both fabulous styles):

I like the original the most by far. It’s a really pretty dress!
