    devonrenee :  The sleeves are a design feature that make your dress distinctive; I wouldn’t cut them off.

    Leave the sleeves! Either do 1/2 or 3/4.

    I think you need to do something with the sleeves. Won’t you get hot with long sleeves in the summer? And I mean this in the best way, I don’t find the full length sleeves flattering.

    I agree that the sleeves are kind of what makes this dress. I wouldn’t eliminate them.

    The sleeves give the dress an elegant feel.  I think they are integral to “the look” so I would not remove them but I’d shorten them.  I think the back looks great as it is.   It already shows a lot of skin.  Congratulations on snaffling such a bargain

    I voted cut them off. If you are getting married in the summer, any sleeves might be hella-hot.  I think a cap sleeve might actually look nice on this dress too!

    I can easily picture that dress without the sleeves and it will be gorgeous. I vote cut them off.
