csskkai :  i know they’re really popular right now, but i just can’t get on the off the shoulder sleeve trend. i always either see 80s or Disney Princess whenever I see a dress with off-the-shoulder sleeves.

I got married a few weeks ago and my dress was great imo. I got loads of compliments. It’s a vintage though so it will look ‘dated’. I was going for classic princess haha and I got that.

My sleeves were beaded and the dress was really comfy 🙂

catskillsinjune :  the 80s and Disney princesses are kind of why I LOVE off the shoulder gowns lol.  I’ve thought about adding off shoulder straps to my gown

I’m still debating adding off shoulder sleeves to my dress and my first alterations appt is in two days! I’m also worried if the restrictiveness of the sleeves is worth the look of them. Following and hoping other brides will chime in!

I will be having off the shoulder sleeves but they will be detachable.
I am planning on wearing it like that for the pictures and the ceremony and then removing them for the reception. Still haven’t decided if I’ll add detachable straps going over the shoulders as well for the reception. The designer suggested I wait to see how it feels once the body of the dress is made (jump aroud, twirl, etc.) in order to determine whether or not it will stay put. I don’t want to be flashing anyone so I might need to add straps lol.

The top will be kind of like this:

I’m adding a topper or bolero or whatever you’d like to call it to my strapless dress. I’m not sure if I’m going to have them sew it on or make it detachable so I can take it off for the reception. As for how well I can move, I guess I’ll find that out in November! Haha. I’m happy to have found something that I think is beautiful that helps me feel less self conscious about my arms.

My dress was off the shoulder-ish. It was only tricky when I was dancing. My (rather short) Dad was an agressive twirler during our Father Daughter Dance. If he were any taller, I would have had real trouble!

Here’s my off-the shoulder! Won’t have the chance to try it out fully for another 5 months, but I’ve tested it a bit when I’ve tried it on. I have a decent amount of arm motion, I just won’t be able to do the YMCA but I’m ok with that! A bit worried about the bouquet toss but I’m sure it’ll be fine!
