I had my final fitting last night and now hate the changes I made to my gown. It is an Allure 8861 and I had lace sleeves added with a keyhole back. The lace is supposed to come off of the shoulder but I find myself tugging on it – it feels like the sleeves just don’t sit right. The lace looks like it digs into my arms and makes them look chubby. One of the reasons I wanted to add lace sleeves was to cover that chubby area and I think I made it worse! Additionally, in order to make the lace keyhole not gap in the back, the lace is very tight across my shoulders and I’m not able to lift my arms. I think it just looks odd and people will be able to tell it was an “afterthought”. I’m thinking about cutting the lace off or tucking it into the dress at this point – I spent a lot of money to have it added but I’m regretting adding it. I also had a belt made out of the Allure sash and it seems like the ruching overpowers the belt. I did buy a reception dress to solve the issue of how would I dance without being able to lift my arms but I can’t help wishing that maybe I shouldn’t have started making changes…

I’m going to be brutally honest and agree that the lace doesn’t look right with the dress. I DO love the belt though. I don’t think it overpowers it.
I was going to say – could you post a pic without the veil? I feel like maybe I think the lace sleeves look odd because the veil is so big and statement-y. I think maybe without the veil, it would look really good…
Either way, you’re going to look beautiful on your day.
