    Those are some extensive alterations. Is it too late to find another dress with the lowered back? Maybe the shop could request a pattern change from the manufacturer to lower the back and no beading   At least you wouldn’t risk ruining the lace.

    Are the gemstones just sewn on or entirely attached onto the lace? If they’re stuck on the lace would be damaged, unless you can hide it with a simple sash. 

    The back is probably doable since it looks like a buttoned back, you can have a scalloped hem around the edges. Just make sure the straps are able to hold up the front properly!

    Your alteration ideas make pretty much my dream dress! I say do it if possible, it would really suit the Santorini vibe

    tessaravb :  Did you go through with your alterations? I’m thinking about something similar and wanted to know whether this worked out for you and how it looked?

    Or if any other bride had made something similar?
