If its just the ceremony your worried about, have you thought of getting a little bolero/jacket and getting whatever dress you want?

kitkatkels: is on the right track – would you be willing to look at combining a dress of your ideal style with a type of cover up that you could use for part of the day? Sometimes it’s easier than trying to find the perfect dress with sleeves, although I have seen some beautiful modern ones out there.

BHLDN has some gorgeous options: http://www.bhldn.com/the-bride-bridal-cover-ups/?cm_sp=LEFTNAV-_-SUB_CATEGORY-_-BRIDE_LINGERIE_COVERUPS

There are also excellent tattoo concealers that work wonders if you find something you love without sleeves.

I would buy some Kate Von D tattoo make up and put that underneath the dresses as what Mrs. TeaCup showed us!! I am planning on using the make up if my side tattoo is showing (I am wanting to buy a strapless but sometimes it cuts to low underneath the armpit if you know what I am talking about? ) lol
