      Okay, you Ladies have been so helpful and responsive that I need to ask a final alterations question beofre my appt tomorrow... I always wanted a sweet heart neckline, and it's the only characteristic of my wedding dress list of requirement that my dress doesn't meet. However, I love the scalloped lace edge detailing on my dresses original design and thought is was a nice trade-off.  I've been contemplating altering the neckline to a sweetheart and in a perfect world I would keep the scalloped detailing, but this is an unlikely option based on the feedback from my seamstress after send a pic.  So what to do...keep the neckline as is or sacrafice the scalloped lace and get a sweetheart?

        I love the scalloped lace. But then again maybe I'm biased as my dress has that too! Lol I am slightly worried about the lace detail remaining pressed and stiff (I guess that the word) I have larger breasts and it doesn't lay flat against my chest so I'm worried that would get floppy and look weird. If you have that issue as well then making it into a sweetheart obviously takes care of that concern

        They both look gorgeous...the way I decided was based on my body type! I have breasts that are on the smaller side, so I went with the sweetheart to give me a little sexiness haha! Both look great, but the added detail of the sweetheart on me made me feel sexier, and like I actually have curves lol! If you're larger in the bust and want to draw a bit of attention away or don't need to highlight them, I say go with the first option. :) LOVE the dress though...SO beautiful!!!! It will honestly look great either way

          hmmm... I can't fill out my dress at the top (not well endowed) so I don't know if this is a problem for me, but it is something I recall worrying about when I had on the sample. It semed like the lace had a mind of it's own.  The scalloped lace extends so far beyond the edge of the dress in the front and back, and I don’t know if it has enough support to lay correctly or if proper sizing and steaming/pressing would make the difference.

          This is also why I originally wanted a sweetheart, I thought it would give me more shape up top and match my curves from the waist down. Thanks for your input.

              I love the sweetheart neckline. But go with your heart ...not my choice...I think I may have been the only one who voted for the empire waist. LOL!! I may be just thinking of what worked for my body type and not analyzing the whole picture. Maybe the seamstress can also help steer you in the proper direction. Good luck! Let us know how it turns out.

              First of all, I loveee this dress!!!  Of course you find a dress that's missing the one requirement lol... I think the scalloped detailing in nice, but i think the sweetheart neckline adds a little bit more "oomph" :)  Good luck!
