Hi Ladies! So I have found THE ONE….and I am in love with the beading. Im going to be getting married in a heritage ballroom and it fits it to a tee!
One concern I had about the neckline, is that it is a “Modern sweetheart”..or so the salesgirl called it. I guess I always had my mind set on a typical sweetheart…so I was thinking of getting the seamstress to add a couple triangles of fabric and beading to make it a sweetheart….
Would you leave it as is, or alter it??? I attached the before (more squareish sweetheart) and a photoshopped version of what it would look like after.

I like image 1 & 3 (can’t tell if that’s before or after though! :))

The classic sweetheart looks so much better!

I’m thinking the first and third are the classic option and I much prefer that.

Yeah, I also like pics 1 & 3. Can’t tell which is before or after either haha.

The neckline in all the pics looks great. I’d leave the dress as is because it has so much beading. Alterations can be tricky when beading is involved. You may end up regreting altering if the beading doesn’t look as good afterwards. You look stunning in the dress as is!

I voted for leave it but I was confused as to what was the before and after. I am not a fan of the squarish neckline. It looks like you were filling in a too deep v. I like the V neckline better.

I am not a fan of the squared off neckline. Go with the classic sweetheart.

Find a really good seamstress to make sure that it’s even possible to change to a sweetheart. With all that beading, altering may not be possible without visabily looking like it was done after the fact.
with detailed the dress is, I would prolly leave it alone.
you look gorgeous in it, pS. Congrats on the dress!!!

I also think the classic sweetheart (from the first and third pictures) is nicer, but only if it can really be done without looking like an add-on, which could be tricky. I would talk to a couple of different seamstresses about how they would do it before deciding, if I were you.

Leave it alone!!! The “alteration” is ugly!

What do you like best? I personally like both quite a bit. The “as is” version is definitely a bit more modern and looking at your last photo, I’d probably say I like it better. But the classic sweetheart is also stunning.

I would leave it as is. It’s a beautiful dress and the beading is fab…. I would be nervous of messing with it and “losing” something of the special-ness about it.
