    Right this is my dress

    But I don't like the flowers on it on the side, which I said from the start but love the shape and siloette but want more detail.
    To take the flowers of will need something else to cover so have been looking at appliques . shop lady recommends the one on this one

    But I think I prefer this one

    But I also want to get more appliques to continue the detail down the back and into the train a bit like on this one

    But obviously the detail coming from the side bustle bit. Along the cresses?
    What you think?

    I think do whatever you think will make the dress yours :-)

    I have a flower on mine also its being taken off and a brooch put in its place as im having a belt it wont need anything big to replace the flower (but definatly.needs something there or it looks like its missing something)

    I love the shape of your dress btw :-)

    I think you should go for the look you like the best. There are so many options available. If you like appliques I'd go for that. If you're unsure you could also try a belt, sash, or broach.

    I think be VERY careful with applique. If it isn't sewn on EXACTLY right then the stitching will show and it will ruin the look of your dress.

    I think whatever you choose to put on needs to be the same place the flower was as the dress flows so lovely down from the hip area that is the feature, I think it would look a bit lost if you put your appliqué higher up by the bust. But obvs it's totally up to you! Maybe they could just put a bit more sparkle up top if you want more up top?

    The applique I mean on the 2 and one is not the under busy bit, but the but on the hip.

    I like the middle one as its the right kind of area to swap the flower for. I don't think you'd need anything on the back though :)
