What about a tulle shrug that you could continue wearing or take off for the reception? Here are some ideas:

OR

When is your wedding? could you rock a faux fur shrug?  Or one made out of feathers:

It might also be possible to get extra tulle from the designer of your dress and get a shrug made directly from it.

ohsobecca:  my dress had a tulle skirt and tulle sleeves with lace appliques. I think plain tulle sleeves would look great with your dress! Especially since the skirt has that beautiful horsehair braid trim, you don’t really need extra embellishments.

ohsobecca:  I don’t have any suggestions different from what PPs have said (I like the idea of tulle sleeves!), but I wanted to say that I’m wearing the Selena too!!

Maybe speak to a dressmaker first? I bought a sleeved dress online at dressesmallau.com and it was super cheap, it needed some minor alterationa at the dressmaker, but still much cheaper than paying retail! Good luck 🙂

ohsobecca:  I would say add illusion tulle capp sleeves that are heavily beaded and a belt that has the same amount of beading
