I’m going to my first alterations appt tonight for my ceremony and reception dress and 10 wks till the wedding. Ceremony dress is strapless and I can’t decide what to do for the reception dress. I bought it from a girl for $100 and don’t want to spend tooo much on alterations, but it does need work in the chest/straps anyway. It also has a bow belt just don’t have it on. So what looks better? I like the lace sleeves and I think they’ll be good once they fit right, just not sure right now.
Here’s with the lace sleeves
And here would be without sleevs
And and here’s my strapless ceremony dress for comparison but is a lot bigger with hoop underneath

MrsN14: I’m not loving the dress without sleeves – the bust looks a bit funny without the sleeves. I actually think the dress is most beautiful with the sleeves! I love your ceremony dress too, btw!

MrsN14: I love the lace sleeves plus I think it will be more comfortable to dance in with them! But also it doesnt look like the dress has enough structure to hold up with out them.

I like the sleeves. You’re going to be dancing around and mingling during the reception and the straps will be way more comfortable for that.
