    Proinceas:  I added fluttery lace sleeves to my strapless dress, as I’ve always been uncomfortable showing my upper arms. The shop ordered in some of the same lace appliques at the bottom of my dress for the sleeves. Photos incoming!

    For your dress I would suggest doing something like the sleeves in your photo 3, but made of some lace that matches the lace at the bottom of your dress. You look absolutely stunning, by the way!!

    Proinceas:  David’s Bridal sells jackets and covarge options for wedding dresses…I would try some on with the dress to get a better idea. 

    Your dress is beautiful…I don’t think you need to add straps. I think long sleeves might take away from the drama on the bottom.

    I LOVE the long sleeve lace, illusion neckline of the B&W picture.  I also like lace cap sleeves.

    I would steer clear of the longer lace sleeve. Stick with one of the cap sleeve options if you decide to do it.

    Proinceas:  you could also consider boleros similar to these hayley paige ones. It’s convenient because they’re completely detachable!
