I’d look into lace boleros for the ceremony and leave the dress as it is. It’s beautiful!

Gorgeous dress! I personally wouldn’t add sleeves to it but I love these little dress toppers/capelets for the ceremony

It looks amazing without anything over the top, as it wasn’t designed to have anything over it. If your ceremony venue demands (or if you would feel more comfortable), I’d go with the sheer/lace bloero or capelet, but remove it for the reception. It looks amazing on you.

I agree with what others have said – get a coverup for the ceremony. The dress is gorgeous and looks fantastic on you!

excitedweddingb :  That dress is gorgeous.  I don’t think the priest will say you can’t wear it (unless it is a very conservative parish).
I wouldn’t alter the dress at all.  I’d wear it as-is at the reception, and add an overlay topper for the ceremony.  Something like this or similar.

I got married roman catholic and the priest didn’t say anything about what I could/couldn’t wear. I had thicker sleeves than that but cleavage. Maybe check?

You look INCREDIBLE. As PP’s have said, just add a bridal bolero/shrug and it will be perfect.
