Take it to a seamstress and see what she says.  I’m sure they do that all the time.

I love your dress!!  Personally I’m a big fan of sleeves– I don’t like strapless as much.  I think with this dress, sleeves would look totally natural (not like they were just added on).  Honestly I think you could do cap sleeves, 3/4, or long and they would all look good!  Maybe see if your seamstress can show you what it would look like.

elegantlytrippin :  That dress is so regal! You look great!

I wasn’t sure about having so much of my chest and shoulders exposed, so I added sleeves.

Turns out that was worse, so I cut them off the morning of my wedding.

It’s an expense to have a professional sew them on, but they can always be removed by an amateur bride with scissors. 

And I felt so beautiful and awesome on my wedding day! Hope this helps!

Maybe you can order a plain/ lace topper to go with the dress.

BHLDN has some great ones.

David’s Bridal has great ones too. Here’s a plain wedding topper from David’s that would look great with your dress.
