Well, I don’t really see a bow, do you have a picture of the back?

And I absolutely LOVE the sweetheart neckline idea (I think they are so flattering and feminine).  Maybe instead of the sash you could get a great rhinestone bridal belt (they sell some really pretty ones on etsy.com). I really think this dress suits you, and maybe if you’re not a fan of zippers (I’m not either I have the corset lace-up back) you could have them install the corset back.

I think the detail on the bottom of your dress looks beautiful! It reminds me of a sparkly winter wonderland :o)

Maybe a fingertip length veil, without too much detail. They have some that have small rhinestones spaced around on them that pick up the light when you move and I think they are gorgeous!

And I don’t think you would have to change your wedding colors at all. No matter if you had an ivory dress or a white dress. What would be the difference? I say go for it!

i like the overall shape of the dress and think a sweetheart neckline would work, but I personally don’t really like the sash/bow! i don’t have any great ideas about what to replace it with however. . .maybe a beaded ivory sash to compliment the beading at the bottom of the dress?

you could shorten the bow instead of losing it completely. replace the bow with flowers at the small of your back atelier aimee style. or replace the sash with beading around the waist to match the hem of your dress. the material of the dress hangs heavily on you; a fit and flare type dress might have suited you better to define your body.

 

strapless dress calls for upswept hair; unless you are having an informal wedding on the beach, in the backyard, etc.

 

good luck,

Its hard to tell, do you have any pictures from a straight on angle to the front and back showing the whole dress?

Okay, so just looked at the other thread and pictures:

Ohhhh…I don’t like the bow at all! And the tails of the bow are much too large. I would say remove it completely!

@JPtoBE: i could tell the bust area was material, not mother nature. : ) do you love the dress? a good deal is secondary.
