You could add a bolero. My dress came with a lace bolero that you could take on and off- but I knew I’d keep it on the whole time so I had snaps added to the bottom of it  and inside my dress so that it would stay tucked in.

If this is something you’re interested in- check out etsy for handmade boleros. Good luck!

I’m in the process of adding sleeves to my dress so unfortunately I won’t have pics until the next fitting (April 1st).  I knew I was going to have them added before I ordered my dress so we ordered extra material from the company so the colours/shades matched. 

I almost went with a bolero but I was worried both about matching the shades/material and also if it was a hot day out, people would be trying to get me to take it off even though I’d be wearing it to feel comfortable with my arms, not to keep warm.  I really do like what OoOTifsterOoO did though!  I never thought to tuck in the bolero to make it look like part of the dress. Very pretty.

I added sleeves!  Sorry for the pic of my back but I think you get a better idea with this shot.
