    You should go for what you want, but if you want to know why I voted number 1, I think shoulders look nice with the cap sleeves, and you also look nice and curvy up top if you know what I mean. It’s just more flattering all around imo. Something about it says “bride”. 

    The second one with the sleeves rolled in looks a little bit more like a tank top. Kinda makes you look smaller on top than you are in the middle. It’s not a bad look, it’s just not as bowchicka-bow-wow as the first.


    It’s a beautiful dress by the way!

    I personally like all three. 

    People are probably loving the original look of the dress because that’s, well, ITS look!

    I totally changed the look of my dress after buying it. I’m a big believer in a dress being ‘you’. Do what you think is ‘YOU’ and suits ‘YOU’. Have confidence in “YOU” ๐Ÿ™‚

    Aww, I did vote for #1, but I think it’s obvious that you’re in love with #2! Look at how happy you are in that pic! And you sound over the moon just talking about it. Definitely go for #2 if that makes you the happiest (which I think we both know it does :P) you look stunning either way!

    i LOVE the cap sleeves! #2 looks good from the front, but i feel like the back doesn’t look as good with them tucked in as it does in style #1

    I do like #1 the best, but then I love sleeves.  My second preference is #3.  However, the all look nice and as PPs have said, you should go for something you’re comfortable with.

    Whatever float your boats.

    Can’t wait to see the look of you in the dress after alternation. ๐Ÿ˜‰

     Very pretty dress!! I think a tailored version of number 1- I see how the extra lace would bother you, I would just get that shortened a little, like you said.

    I think 2 looks amazing! Totally goes with you frame! Not a fan of 3 though if im honedt but only as I think it makes it more of an evening dress then a wedding dress.

    Love that idea of just taking the hanging lace bits off the sleeve! I’m sure it’s going to look gorgeous when it’s all done ๐Ÿ™‚
