    I think it’ll look great either way, but I feel like the one shoulder look is a little trendy, like you might look back and go ehhhh..  the cap sleeves are classic!

    I think you should leave it alone, which is probably what all the “Other” voters who haven’t commented think. If I had to choose, I guess I’d go one-shoulder. I think cap-sleeves, no matter how well-done, always look like last minute additions. They never seem to look like they belong on the dress.

    Either cap sleeves or don’t add anything! Maybe dip the neckline?

    Sorry, but I really dislike those cap sleeves. I’d do nothing to it.

    Added cap sleeves, especially if not made from the same material as the dress typically end up looking like a home ec project. Also, with the tulle one one shoulder + your veil would be too much going on (so much sheer material in so little space). 

    Plus, strapless dresses are perfect for showing off a fabulous clavicle and lovely set of shoulders. Plus it really elongates your neck, making it look very elegant. I actually adore your veil + strapless the way the model is wearing it. Sometimes less is more.

    I think of the tulle sleeve as more etheral and whimsicle and your dress seems more classic and traditional. I love it as it is!

    I picked the cap sleeves but it was influenced by your veil choice. I prefer less tulle around your face, so that it doesn’t distract from you. Also I really like cap sleeves. lol

    @jessyrez:  You are so cute (and I love all of the photos accompanying the explanations).

    It sounds like you really have your heart set on doing the asymmetrical tulle look, so why don’t you? It won’t look bad, and it’s more of a style preference for those of us with dissenting opinions, anyway. 

    Besides, my biggest issue with the one shoulder was it being too busy with your veil, but I found a similar example that shows how a one shoulder can work with a birdcage and not look too cluttered:

    @jessyrez:  I’ve never seen that before; I quite like it. Whatever you decide to do, please come back with photos so that we can see!

    Although I like the one-shoulder in the models’ photos, I’m not so sure it’ll look so good in real life under normal lighting. I think the cap sleeves are the safer bet.
