    I feel like the cap sleeves make the dress look more juvenile than it does without them. I love cap sleeves in general, but I don’t feel like they go with this dress.

    When I saw the first two pictures, I thought, ‘Oh that dress is pretty.’  When I saw the last one without the sleeves, I thought, ‘Wow, that’s a beautiful gown!’  I just think the gown is so beautiful on its own; however, you should be comfortable, so if sleeves make you feel better, wear them!

    I can’t believe that I am in the minority here. I LOVE your cap sleeves. I think that it makes your dress look different from the typical strapless gown. You are so beautiful in that dress!!!

    I love the capped sleeves, but the dress is beautiful either way. You’re thinking right about jewelry too–if you do sleeves I would stray away from a standout necklace because it interferes with the stunning collarbone area and lean towards standout earrings. With strapless, the necklace looks fine.

    And not that it matters, but I would have never guessed your age in a million years. You look absolutely incredible.

    ETA-a necklace, like a pearl one you talked about. Not the chunky one. Takes away from the graceful look.

    I like capsleeves normally, but in this instance I think they take away from your dress. You don’t need them! It’s gorgeous without them!

    Usually I am all about sleves because they add something visually to the dress, but in your case I really think that it looks better without the sleves. No sleves makes your veil look very pretty.

    I love cap sleeves with that dress…maybe something simpler but yes…very romantic!

    I like the sleeves, but I may be biased because I added cap sleeves to my dress too. I’m 100% with you on feeling naked without them. I say go with what makes you feel comfortable. I think people always look their best when they’re comfortable and confident in what they’re wearing.

    I vote no sleeves and a chunkier necklace. I think you have a very pretty decollete (I hope that isn’t weird to say hahaha) and the sleeves block that a bit.
