Hi everyone! I’m getting into the home stretch here, my wedding is on July 11! I’d like to get your opinions on my dress. It came as a spaghetti strap and because it’s a heavy ballgown (and since I didn’t like the thin straps anyways), I got it altered to be thicker, I believe it’s ½ inch now. And I absolutely LOVE IT!!!!! (see pics below!!) But I also want to feel more princess-y, and I really like the idea of off-shoulder tulle to help with that look. I brought that up at my last fitting and my mom shot that idea down, saying that I shouldn’t have gotten the straps if I wanted that because “it’s either shoulder straps or off shoulder straps not both.” But I’ve been looking online and I think it would be super cute with both, I’m just not sure about it with how wide my straps are and I don’t want to go back to thin straps, and know I definitely do not want strapless with off-shoulder. I’m having another fitting in May with my sister (MOH) and another bridesmaid and will ask them what they think but I also value other brides’ opinions! I’m wondering if you lovely ladies think it would look good with the thick straps and off shoulder! So the pics below are my dress how it is, and a few pics of off shoulder styles (with and without straps) that I like. Please let me know what you think and if it would be a good addition or not because I can’t decide!
