    I think your dress is really pretty strapless.  If you do go with straps, I think the 2nd option would complement the skirt of your dress nicely.

    I like them both, and they both would work with the dress. 

    Probably depends on what sort of shape you have. If you’re bottom heavy, the off-the-shoulder straps woudl help to define your waist more and balance you out. The v-neck straps would be better if you feel you need more support for your boobs, or want to show them off a bit more. 

    That said, I think with your body and that dress (both are beautiful BTW!) you could wear either. 

    Sorry I’m no help!

    I don’t think you need straps, but the second off-the-shoulder style is really lovely. You could do it in a way that the fabric can be detached for the reception if you wanted that option too.

    I imagine it might be a bit difficult to give you the first pair of straps, since it is a completely differen bodice in the picture.

    I think the off the shoulder are probably more realistically attainable, and I think it would look really good with your dress.

    Okay – having had a look again, I think the off-the-shoulder might not work with the sash. It means two horizontal lines close to each other – might have the effect of making you look blocky.

    The v-neck might work better with the sash. The only thing is – I think you would need to get a sample of the dress fabric and appliques and have the straps made out of that. Otherwise it’s just going to look added on.

    I think both look lovely and once again I adore your dress 🙂 When you go for a fitting they may be able to show you the second with some tulle and you can see how you feel, I think the off the shoulder option would be the easiest to integrate into your dress since the bottom is tulle and you wouldn’t have a hard time getting some to match.  If you put it together like the photo it might cover over some of the (absolutely gorgeous) beaded trim on the bodice though.  Have I mentioned I love your dress?

    I like the regular shoulder straps, but all options are so pretty!!!
