Need dress advice

Hi everyone! I bought a simple wedding dress because I’m hoping to get a belt made from saree fabric added (I’m Indian). I wanted something modern, elegant and simple- I’m not a glitz and glam type of girl. After stewing on things for a bit, I am sort of regretting not getting something with a bit of lace at the top, and I’m second guessing my choice to keep things simple. I know I want the belt, which will probably be red and gold, but do you think it’s still possible to get lace added during alterations? If so, where do you think I should get it added? Thank you in advance! Need dress advice 1

    I agree about waiting to see it with the belt - but with that being said, I think it would be somewhat easy to add some lace trim on top as well as lace straps?

    I think the dress is beautiful! I agree with the others, I would wait until you've added the saree fabric to see how you feel about it.


    Then I would ask a seamstress about how to go about adding to the dress. Plus you could always do a more over the top veil to add some texture to the whole thing.

    I would wait also till after you get your belt done. Could you try your dress with a shrug or bolero that you can take off? Your dress is beautiful.

    Omg I loooove your dress! How soon are you having your belt made? If it were me, I'd wait to see how it looks once the belt is on and then go from there. It might jazz it up enough that it puts your mind at ease about adding anything else. Otherwise, (and take this with a grain of salt since I'm really no expert here) maaaaaaybe a seamstress could do a lace overlay over the whole bodice?

    In regards to trying to give it something more, instead of adding lace you can wear a statement necklace. Your dress is beautiful, so this could add to it without literally adding to it. If you google search “statement necklace with wedding dress” you can find lots of examples such as the following Smiley smile adding lace would be beautiful as well, but I’m not a seamstress do I wouldn’t know where to add it... maybe trim
