    I absolutely love lace-ups. Many of us buy are dresses way in advance of the wedding and the lace-up allows the dress to fit perfectly regardless of any minor changes in weight and without alterations. That being said, I actually chose a dress that doesn't lace up. I was considering having it converted, but I think my dress would loose a bit of its charm if I did. But, I was originally planning to purchase a different dress that was lace-up. My mom watched the sales person lace it up and then repeated the process herself to make sure that she knew how to do it.

        Oh ya I also wanted to add that certain dresses just look better as buttons and others better as lace ups, especially ones with a fuller bottom, like a ballgown look better as lace ups.  More sleek clean lined dresses look better with buttons. I'm actually suprised at how many women on here prefer lace ups. I could only imagine how well they fit, I never tried one on so I dont know. I am hoping though that my dress creates that skin tight feel too.

              I love buttons; they were actually a requirement in my dress selection. I didn’t try on a single lace-up/corset style dress. I didn’t think it embodied the look I was going for.  I do have real buttons though which might get a bit time consuming, but I’ll have plenty of help!

                I finally had an opportunity to try on my dress. (I've been waiting for it since the middle of August!) I fell in love with it all over again. Best part is I don't need any alterations. It was a perfect fit! My veil and hair pins also came in so it was a happy day.

                    Well stated kellygrrrl

                     

                    that is mt exact opinion and my dress has a hidden zipper also, though I wouldn't have been a againt button up either.

                      Ya I love your dress so much ! I think we have similar style. What are some other decisions you have finalized on, I would love to know
