I am less than four months from my wedding now and working on alterations for my CT2406 dress. So far, I decided to turn the neck into a slight sweetheart but I am also considering adding a cap sleeve.
Curious what you guys think. Do I leave it as plain sweetheart or add the cap sleeve?

I generally prefer dresses with straps, but I think your dress is gorgeous without them. I agree with adding a sweetheart neckline. 🙂 You look lovely in your dress!

Have you tried on other dresses with cap sleeves? I find they fall off my shoulders, so it might be worthwhile seeing if it works for you first.

copperbird90: Good point! I saw a pair of custom-made cap sleeves on etsy for about $50…like them much better than the ones David’s Bridal offers. May go down to Davids though this weekend just to try on a cap sleeve to see if I like it on me.
WeddingLovingWeasel: thank you!
We are doing a slight sweetheart, rather than full on sweetheart. Due to the heavy beading on my dress, the seamstress is “cinching” the center of the straight-breast so to say to create the look of sweetheart. It is pinned as such in my picture above. It’s slight but I feel it gives more shape
