I really think it looks totally fine without anything!! Tust me, I feel your pain, I’m self conscious of my arms too.. But I’m looking at you, and it looks perfectly beautiful without anything covering them up.

I think it draws more attention to your arms when you try to cover them up, whereas right now it’s just nice and everyone will be looking at you and your dress, not your arms.

@BENSBOO:  You look stunning in that dress.  I definitely don’t think you need anything covering your arms, plus you’ve got an amazing tan that I’d want to show off.  If you think you’d be more comfortable, so try on a few wraps, shurgs and boleros; you can always remove them later in the evening if you want.

You look gorgeous!  I don’t think you need to do anything to cover up your arms.  I wouldn’t want to wear a bolero because it would cover up the beautiful beading on the dress.  Have you thought about just wearing your veil all night?

I think you look great! I wouldn’t worry about covering up. No one is worried about your arms 🙂 They’ll be too busy looking at all of you.

you look great, your arms look great. Only get a bolero if you think it will really bug you on the day – but seriously you look gorgeous.

You look GORGEOUS!!  Honestly… you don’t need to wear anything over your dress.  People will be focusing on YOU and your happiness – not your arms (which, by the way, look absolutely fine).  Congrats on finding such a flattering dress.  Enjoy it!

I think you look stunning! I will say though, if it is something that you will be worrying about all night get a cover up. The last thing you want is to feel anything less than beautiful on your big daySmile

OK, I feel like an idiot repeating stuff I’ve heard on wedding shows. But in this case, its definitely true. As a fellow bride who is VERY self conscious about her arms, I can tell you I have found that sleeves just draw attention to them more. I promise you, I did not believe this until I tested it for myself. But its like the color contrast or the width of the fabric…something about it just draws the eye like a target.

So I personally say, rock your gown as is. It looks beautiful and you have a really great silhouette in it. The focus is going to be on your waistline and that gorgeous beadwork. You look well proportioned and fabulous. Nothing to hide!
