    As long as the sleeves you add go well with dress, it should be fine and is a good idea. Delicate straps, like in the third picture, might look good. The dress coverage looks great on you, though, so sleeves and straps might not add that much to what’s already there. 

    There are cap sleeves that David’s Bridal has that lots of other brides have used for their dresses. Personally, I don’t think those sleeves would work with that dress, so looking at other cap sleeve/sleeve options may be a good idea. The sleeves I am talking about can be seen on dress style 9V9010. I mention that only because I see those sleeves used a lot with dresses other than the dress style I mentioned, and it’s not unusal for them to not look good together.

    Your dress is so pretty and detailed. I feel like straps would take away from it, not add too it.
