I think this dress would look beautiful with cap sleeves! I also think it’s a beautiful dress with lots of personality and any extra pizzaz could come from your accessories: veil, jewelry, bouquet. I love it!

@alabiak: I would honestly ditch the jacket as well as it makes it look a little dated.  The dress itself is beautiful and I think cap sleeves in a similar material will enhance the dress.  I don’t think you have anything to worry about and the cap sleeves will work wonderfully.

I also agree with cap sleeves.  I don’t think it necessarily needs anything extra, but it could just be a matter of personal taste.  I think you could bling it up with some accessories.

Dress shopping is rough.  I don’t think the majority of people have the Say Yes to the Dress moment.  It’s also hard b/c the sample sizes don’t fit a lot of brides, so it is hard to visualize.  Plus, there’s all this pressure to have the perfect dress that you have an emotional reaction to . . . it makes it hard to be 100% sure.  But your dress is gorgeous!  You will be enthusiastic about it once it fits you!

@alabiak:

I LOVE that gown!  It is exquisite!  I bet when it does fit you right, you will love it!  I bet once you decide on your hair and jewelry it will be perfect for a winter wedding.  If after all is said and done and that you feel that you want/need more altered -you could definitely change things up a bit then, but from what I see -Gorgeous!!!  FWIW-I got married in November and my mom paid a fortune to buy “sleeves” that came to a point on my hand.  If it is cold where your wedding will be held, you may want the little bit extra from the sleeves?!
