@sweetpea87: I think it would look very pretty with cap sleves, but thats just my personal preference…I think when you get it fitted, you should decide, and spend some time in the store walking around in it…if you still think that its going to be sinking downwards, THEN add the straps…if its properly fitted, you shouldn’t have any issues at all. Good Luck!

I think the cost varies enormously by designer and seamstress, but making my strapless Marisa a 1 shoulder cost 60 dollars for an extra half yard of fabric, and 100 for the alteration.  IMO, well worth it to not be one of those brides tugging her boobies up all night.  🙂

I don’t really like the look of spaghetti straps on wedding dresses, personally.

I think a cap sleeve or a tringle sleeve (thin where it attaches to dress and larger at shoulder) would be pretty.

I had straps added to mine from the extra fabric that came from my hem alteration and it cost $50. But like the others have said it varies a lot depending on the seamstress, the sleeve, and whether or not you have the fabric already.
