Should I wear a strapless (off the shoulder) Wedding dress or a dress with straps and/or shoulder covering?

A strapless dress can be very alluring and attractive but you need to be confident wearing it.

Practice your every movement for the Ceremony and afterwards, while wearing a sample dress and have someone else count the number of times you consciously or even unconsciously adjust the garment.

As a Celebrant, I have seen a variety of dresses and all brides look absolutely stunning, but my humble observation is that ‘off the shoulder’ (OTS) strapless dresses will slip up or down and will require frequent, if not constant adjusting even if well fitting and supported by the correct undergarments.

I had one bride let go of her groom’s hands during the vows so that she could adjust her strapless dress.

I am told that fashion models overcome the problem in photoshoots, largely by great design in dresses, very specific undergarments and most significantly, the use of ‘glue’ but even then, they are still restricted in movement.

So that while OTS is fashionable, every time I see a bride or bridesmaid, wearing one, the frequent tugging on the dress can become very distracting (for her & others) and could even impact on your wedding video and photographs.

Imagine turning to your beloved groom to take his hands and suddenly your dress distractingly slides upwards on your arms; and later when you are dancing or go to throw a bouquet, you discover that you have to quickly adjust the dress to avoid embarrassment.

The only way to reduce the movement of the dress, I am told, even if it is a perfect dress with correct undergarment fit, is gluing, pinning to other garments and restricting movement.

In contrast, even a small amount of shoulder support/covering eliminates all the problem and can add eloquence.
