Ideas please!! Lace dress add straps?

I am really loving this dress!!! it has lace witch i love but the bottom trumpet adds a modern twist.  I want to modify this dress slightly.  I don't like the point and the bottom where the lace ends i want that straight.  Also i need more coverage on my shoulders ( church wedding).  I thought about a Bolero but I am not sure i want to go for that look.  PLease help with ideas... High neckline? cap sleeves? V neck? elbow length sleeves.?


Does this look like solid lace to you? or applique?

Love the dress! Not certain about the ribbon but I think that's just me :)


You should ask them about the lace, they probably use a different kind. For the shoulders you kan use a wrap/scarf?  I am not sure a bolero would do the dress justice.

Maybe something like this photo 2890333-1Birnbaum and Bullock: Marlene wedding dress


Maybe something like this on top? 


 


I agree with you about the bolero.  I have mostly seen them paired with solid lace dresses or plain satin gowns kind of a extra kick to the dress.

Stunning! Most certainly the back! 


Are the shoulders covered enough?
