Here’s mine, it’s Maggie Sottero’s Dixie with a lace bolero over the top. Whilst I loved my dress, I wanted something with sleeves for the Church. Our Church doesn’t require it but I wanted to, and then I decided that I loved the bolero so much that I’m going to keep it on all day!

Sorry about looking a bit weird in the picture, I’ve lost quite a lot of weight since I bought the dress so the salon shoved 6 car wash type sponges down the bodice/waist of the dress to hold it up so that I could walk around in it, but it still kept falling down so in the photos it’s sitting lower than it will.

Also, sorry the pic is huge, WB won’t let me resize!

i had the hardest time finding a dress with sleeves, so i had mine made. i got married outdoors in feb, so sleeves were a priority! i also just love the classic look of it (with some modern touches, such as major cleavage Wink)

Mine has “cap sleeves”. I don’t think strapless looks that great on me. Almost all Justice of the Peace dresses have sleeves.

Mine was a Vera Wang White dress. I wanted something more traditional and Grace Kellyesque with a nice long train.

@spotted_giraffe:  Oh my gosh, how funny!! I bought the Casablanca 1827, but I couldn’t stand the straplessness (I guess that’s a word?) so I had them add the cap sleeves/keyhole back from your dress! I have to admit, though, that bolero is stunning with that dress! Can you say dress envy??

I haven’t gotten my dress yet, but I can’t wait to start posting pictures here!

Mine has cap sleeves. They aren’t super long, but I also don’t like strapless dresses on my body, and the lines that this type of sleeve created in the dresses work really well.

@prettygirlfromna: i absolutely love yours!



I am getting my dress made with sleeves. I cannot wait. I don’t need sleves but I think it adds so much more style wise. 

if I am going to wear the most expensive dress I MAY possibly ever wear then why not use my WHOLE body as the canvas? why pay for less material?
