    Ok so I originally fell in LOVE with a dress, mainly because Its different and love the open back on it.... I went ahead and didnt get that dress, not very beachy but am wondering if I should gt it altered to look like the one I originally fell in love with or will it be better if I keep the dress how it is. Make sense? Anyways I figured you girls would tell me the truth!!!
    So here is me and the wedding dress... I know I look disgusting didnt know they were taking the picture

            Okay, I saw it...so it would be open in the back but still have the criss crosses of the tie things right?

            I personally like your dress now, I think its very formal and elegant. However, if you love the back of the other dress then I say create the look you want!

            Either way, the dress will look great! Not sure if that helps...sorry i can never make up my mind or help in that dept.

              Yeah at first I wanted to change it but now I am afraid it would just ruin the dress.... Yeah I dont know what I would do to open it LOL Because it I were just to take the privacy panel out it would look good with that style of dress so I would have to kinda get the whole back altered... it would be more of a square open back showing more and less criss corss things!

                I think your dress is amazing the way it is! I would be worried about how the alterations would turn out b/c the it looks like the corset part goes really low in the back. Have you spoken to a seamstress yet about how they would make it open back?

                  if you open the back, you really have to worry about tanlines. I don't think it is worth the stress because your dress already looks great on you. What about getting a beautiful open-back dress to wear another time on vacation or for a TTD?

                      I had them take out the privacy panel in the back and I wish I hadn't. I think the dress would have stayed tighter on me if I had the panel in there because it would have been snapped in on the side. And I was originally thinking she would take the whole thing out, but because it went so low and I didn't want my butt hanging out, she had to leave some of it in, and it just didn't look right. I really didn't like it and wished I had left it alone!
