Hi all! Would you consider having an off the shoulder wedding dress with 3/4 tulle sleeves and lace applique for a summer wedding. So I love wedding dresses with sleeves but Im not sure if I should try one on with 3/4 sleeves just in case I fall in love with one and cannot wear it due to the temperature being very hot…I am not sure if I will look comfortable if I get too hot (but I am willing to not be bothered with that). I also am afraid having everyone wearing short sleeves or strapless including bridesmaids and me with 3/4 sleeves will look funny in pictures. Average temperature is always around 35deg cel (95fahrenheit) in August where I live, sometimes even hotter. And I still dont know if its indoors or outdoors coz the venue offers both..but im doing it indoors only if the weather doesnt permit and there is like a summer storm or something.

I wouldn’t. I love the look of sleeves on dresses too, but can’t for a July wedding. Wedding dress are already pretty hot- you would die in all the heat in August. It would also look really funny in pictures especially when guests are going to be dressed like it is a summer wedding. Try a pretty strap or a cap sleeve. They would be more seasonally appropriate and still have a similar look of elegance

I wouldn’t. And I would absolutely plan to have the wedding indoors.

thanks for your opinions. Although I have till a day before the wedding to decide if its indoors or out, i would love to keep it outdoors coz of the atmosphere. Yes I will not try on wedding dresses with sleeves. Even my mom agreed with you – i just love the lace sleeves.

I have the same exact issue.. and I am literally trying to decide on that exact dress! My wedding is in early June, and the temp where I’m at could be anywhere from the 60s to mid 80s. I think I’m just going to go for it because I really love the look of sleeves. And I feel like the sleeves on this dress are breathable enough.

We are getting married in July and I’m wearing a strapless gown but putting a 3/4 sleeve lave bolero over it for the Church ceremony (the church is usually always cold and I feel sleeves are more appropriate for church)…and then removing it for the reception.
Have you considered a bolero? It might give you some flexibility.

My mom wore long sleeves in July when she got married. I don’t think it would bother me at all that my guests are in sleeveless And don’t men wear suit jackets in the summer??? DUH!!! Do what YOU want!!! Enjoy ur day!!!!

Our wedding is in August, north-east of France. I can’t predict the weather but it might be around 30C. I have a top which looks similar to your picture – illusion tulle with lace appliques. I just LOVE the look. I ordered it for the ceremony in the church, but plan to keep it on as long as I can.
Actually, the dress you love seems to have detachable top too!
“Layered glitter and tulle wedding dress with Chantilly lace and ribbon. Strapless lace bodice with tulle camisole, bateau neckline and elbow-length sleeves. Back fastened with buttons. Princess skirt with appliqués to the waist, grosgrain belt and a little bow at the front.”
