    Honestly I love it strapless, it looks amazing on you!! You can’t listen to your fiance’s opinion on dresses because when you walk down the aisle he’s not going to be looking at you thinking, “damn I wish her shoulders were covered up”, because hes going to forget all about it and be so ecstatic! also youre super skinny and the strapless fits you well, I could understand if you wanted to cover up something, but you dont need to! 🙂

    Cap sleeves may help keep the dress up while you enjoy your day. Strapless dresses always seem to fall down and it’s a pain to keep pulling them up.

    I added cap sleeves myself and I love them. Everyone said it was crazy and I did it anyway.  The wrap might get in your way throughout the day.  I’d hate for you to feel like your movements were restricted.

    No harm in having both. Like the boys scouts say: be prepared!

    I know cap sleeves are a really big thing right now, but I think you suit strapless the best. The dress has a perfect balance on you. If you do want a cover up I think the shrug is a bit better suited. That said the dress suits you so well you could plop a pair or kiddy fairy wings on and still look amazing so go with what you like best. You won’t please everyone so please yourself.

    I’ve never been a fan of adding cap sleeves, but I LOVE the delicate tulle you’ve chosen for your cap sleeves. I think that would probably be your most comfortable option – a wrap cover up can be uncomfortable/constricting and you might have to keep putting it back in place. It’s gorgeous too though!

    pinkorblue:  I had a strapless dress. It never once needed to be adjusted/pulled up during the wedding  since it was properly fitted for my body

    I think the strapless looks the best. The cap sleeves in the picture do not flow with the dress in my opinion. Perhaps maybe a lace version would look better.

    I’d go with the wrap. I’m not crazy about the idea of cap sleeves with this particular dress (beautiful, btw!). The wrap will keep you warmer too since you’re having a winter wedding.

    I love those delicate cap sleeves! The cover up is nice but I think it would be very restrictive…imagine even just trying to put your arms around FI’S neck for the first dance…

    Personally, I think I’d go straps for comfort as the wrap looks very restrictive (can someone pass me the wineglass in front of me? I’d have an issue lol). Have you considered an illusion v-neck? It could be cut wide to still be more of a cap style than tank straps But the front would be very sheer and the straps could taper down in the back. 

    This example is lace but maybe the shape could work (the third pic is the close up). http://www.wishbridal.com/2015-new-fashion-a-line-lace-wedding-dress-cap-sleeves-illusion-v-neck-chapel-train.html#.VKaR80ZHanM
