After much hassel and a dress disaster I have found a dress I love. I originally wanted sleeves on my dress to the elbow. But this dress is beautiful without them too. Do you think sleeves on the dress will make or break it?

This dress is so gorgeous with such a unique neckline. Don’t change it!!!

I’m gonna have to say no. That dress is magnificent, in part due to the drama of the current neckline/sleeve design.

It’s a beautiful dress even without the sleeves. But I think that it really depends on your arms… I mean, if you have nice petite arms then great. But many women make the mistake of wearing sleeveless when they have bulgy arms.. I’m thinking of having cap sleeves on my wedding dress .. or a small jacket or shawl to go with the dress in case I don’t feel comfortable showing my out-of-shape arms lol. here are some websites that I was looking at earlier for designs of sleeves. Hope that helps. And I think that if you do go half sleeves, then consider haveing a bell design as it would make the dress look more elegant.

I don’t like the idea of making major alterations to any dress. You never know how it will turn out.
It’s a beautiful dress, but if you’ll be more comfortable in sleeves, look for something else.
I considered a strapless dress with a bolero before I found my dress.

@PJ2012: I don’t have petite arms unfortunately. I have lost weight recently and my arms have slimmed down. Maybe if I leave it without and do some toning exercises?

That dress is going to look really 1960s with long lace sleeves. If you’re ok with that, go for it!

Also if it helps. This is the back. Minus the small train.

@EffieTrinket: I like the vintage look but I’m not sure… I’m terrible at fashion decisions!

I’m torn. I think it will look really nice either way, to be honest. Why not post pics of you in the dress as it is, and then in the dress with a bolero on, so we can get an idea of what the sleeves will look like. Either way, that’s a tough one…

@Rachel631: I haven’t got the dress yet. It’s being made. I can take a photo of my arms to help, 😛

I think it’s a beautiful dress! I honestly don’t see there being any problem if it had sleeves. It looks great both ways in my opinion
