Pippa28:  It depends entirely on what kind of sleeves they are. Pics would be helpful.

I love sleeves.  I like a more modest wedding dress.  I am so glad srtapless is trending out!  I want to show skin to my husband, only, after teh wedding.  I wanted to look pretty on my wedding day, not sexy.  My dress had cap sleeves, but I had a late spring wedding.  I love long sleeves too.  Just look at Grace Kelly or Kate Middleton if you want to see gorgeous sleeves.  Kate and Grace are above.  Seriosly, could you be more breathtaking than those two?

Pippa28:  Sleeves are definitely lovely and I was really into them! I ended falling in love with a strapless but sleeves are AMAZING!

I think sleeves are gorgeous! I’m opting for off-the-shoulder straps for my dress. The only problem with sleeves in my opinion is that it seems to me like if you get sweaty from heat or dancing the night away they could get uncomfortable. It might be more versatile to get a sleeveless dress and a lace bolero or something.

Have you tried on any dresses yet? Because that can change your opinions a lot too 🙂

The ones you chose are so nice and not matronly looking at all!! I usually don’t like sleeves but those two dresses changed my mind!

Well, neither my wedding nor my reception dress are like the dresses I always see. I opted for spaghetti straps for the wedding dress. The reception dress is technically sleeveless, but there is no chest showing at all. I did want to be sexy but still classy with a vintage flair. I did not want the usual sleeveles ball gown, mermaid, etc. dress that I see all the time. I march to the beat of my own drum, though. Both of the dresses you put up are totally lovely!!! Follow your own instincts about what type of dress you want, and like the best! Good luck!

I think sleeves really add elegance to a dress. I wouldn’t look at either of those dresses and think matronly! I think they’re gorgeous & elegant!

Those dress are beautiful, make sure you can lift your arms up in them though.  I found I couldn’t lift my arms up in off the shoulder dresses.  Don’t worry about not seeing anyone else wearing something similar, that’s the best part, it’s unique!  I haven’t seen anyone wear my dress or really anything that looks like it and that’s one of the reason I love it!
