Love your dress. Look at it this way, you cand embrace yourself after doing what you could and have a beautiful wedding day, OR you can obsess over them and let it spoil your beautiful day. You have worked on them and you made a difference. instead of putting yourself down pat yourself on tieback. You will rock that dress! 🙂

Your dress is really pretty! I would recommend getting a couple of big statement jewelry pieces, particularly earrings and a necklace. The bling should catch people’s eyes and divert the focus from your arms. Also, your fiance loves you and I’m sure will think you are beautiful!

Sometimes when women with “flabby arms” wear sleeves or any kind of cover, it can actually make the arms appear bigger. The dress is gorgeous as is, so I’m sure it will be gorgeous on you. Like PP said, make this a happy, carefree day that you and your hubby-to-be can cherish.

I agree with the others… Maybe get a pretty wrap instead of a bolero? That way you can put it on for some pictures or if you start to feel uncomfortable. I don’t love my arms either, but I think a bolero would detract from the dress.

@Mellykelly:  I am sure you look gorgeous in that!  I mentioned my arms when i was looking, and the lady in the shop said, “your arms are fine–most ladies worry about them and think they are MUCH worse than they really are!”…we are always our own worst critic.  I know she meant it because she could have made more $$$ from me selling a bolero or shrug!

Also, sometimes attempting to cover up actually draws more attention so I say, rock it!
