How do you dress up a plain spaghetti strap dress?

Summer, on May 2, 2010 at 6:18 PM Posted in Wedding Attire

Hey ladies, I'm thinking of getting a dress with a jacket and a plain spaghetti strap dress underneath. Since the train is on the jacket and I'll want to take it off, how might I dress up the dress for the reception? And has anyone had any experience with romanticgowns.com? Here is the dress: http://www.romanticgowns.com/collection/product-page.asp?SKU=CopaCabana&en=GoogleBase

    First off I love your dress, you can add lace sleeves to it if you want something you can wear under the jacket that comes with it, most bridal shops will have some long and short lace sleeves that you can try on with your dress. Here's some from DB

    What if you added a sash the color of your BM dresses or another color from your wedding? You could do a wide sash around the waist with a large brooch in the center. Or even just evened out the simplicity of the dress with big jewelry?

    The jacket with the train is totally gorgeous, and has a lot of jeweled accents on it. When you take it off, you have to continue with the theme, so I would add a really gorgeous brooch, something like this: http://forprincessbride.com/store/product459.html

    There are other gorgeous brooches at www.forprincessbride.com. Also, I agree with hidi d.: Jewelry enywhere. Emphasize earrings and necklace. Something like this: http://forprincessbride.com/store/product286.html or around that style would look great!

    I absolutely love forprincessbride! I probably won't wear a veil, but I was thinking of one of their many amazing rhinestone headbands.

    I was also thinking of an obi sash and/or a bolero. This jacket from David's (not my favorite, but I'll buy one little accessory from them) would be great at the reception, I think. http://www.davidsbridal.com/webapp/wcs/stores/servlet/ProductDisplayView?langId=-1&catalogId=10051&storeId=10052&catentryId=6144289 Also, I was thinking of having a shorter necklace for the ceremony (y'know, with the jacket), and then a big showpiece for the reception. Probably only one of those ideas will be plenty!

    Dear Summer B.: thank you for your kind words! We try to get the best of the best for the brides, and at affordable prices. We also include a beautiful surprise gift with every order. I think it's a great idea to change jewelry as you change your outfit for the reception. And again, I have to tell you your jacket just blew me away! Enjoy your wedding!
