    Just alter the off shoulder sleeves so they look perfect and be somewhat constricted. : (5 votes)

    I think you look lovely. And I think you should make it strapless and leave the rest alone.

    I love the off-shoulder sleeves, but you need to be comfortable wearing them the entire day! If that isn’t possible, I’d say go with strapless – it looks good as well.

    I love the bottom pinned up like that, and I also think it’s a lot more flattering strapless with the pinned-up bottom.  Another thing you might consider is to do a looser off the shoulder strap(s)  with some sort of detail, flowers or ruffle or something.

    Are you wearing your wedding shoes in the pictures? If so, the length looks perfect as is.

    Are you wearing your shoes in the first photo? Because if you are, then it’s not too short at all.

    I like the off the shoulder look too, but understand how it could be constricting. Does the one shoulder feel better? I think the one-shoulder look is very chic – but the dress actually looks nice all three ways, so go with what feels most comfortable to you.

    If going to strapless would make you happy, I say go for it.  But I’d leave the rest of it alone.  I’m guessing the simplicity is what drew you to the dress in the first place.

    I like the look of your dress so much more as a strapless.  And I think the pinning makes it more modern and pretty.  Go for it!
