K-labree: That is a vey pretty option! I will definitely see if something like that is possible. My only concern is I don’t want conflicting lace patterns on the dress so I will have to see what the alterations dept could do!
SellyJo: I think you and the other bees might be right about how constrictive the wrap might be! Thanks for the example, it was very helpful!

nursegurnett: i think the straps kill your dress. It looks like straps were put on a sleeveless dress.
so if sleeveless is not an option, I would continue to look for dresses. There are plenty of dresses with sleeves, that look like they were made to be with sleeves.
on a side note: I think it’s rather rude and controlling for your fiance to try to dictate your dress. you are not showing cleavage or anything disrespectful in your dress.
i understand respecting your significant other, but there is noting disrespectful about your dress.

nursegurnett: you could also do a sheer shrug which would be less restrictive that the wrap. I think the cap sleeves looks fine, they do not take away from the dress.

I actually really like the cap sleeves on that dress, but if you are unsure, I would get a pretty coverup that way you can decide on that day if you want to wear it/take it off.. or wear it for the ceremony and take it off for the reception!

nursegurnett: Sorry, I meant that last link only for the shape because most illusion v-necks have more of a tank top cut like http://www.angeldress.co.uk/v-neck-tulle-lace-a-line-sleeveless-illusion-back-floor-length-wedding-dresses-p378493.html Again, that one has detailing but you could do just the tulle on it’s own.
I agree you definitely don’t want two lace patterns. It may be worth trying on and tucking in the plain tulle to see if it works with your dress. I just thought it may be a way to technically provide some cover and comfort but look like it was always part of the dress (which I just have to say is gorgeous!)
