bumblebug :  I was admittedly extremely nervous to buy online, but honestly it was the best decision I have made so far in regards to wedding planning. This dress is the most beautifully intricate and delicate dress I have ever tried on (and I went to five bridal boutique appointments before buying online). Also I had it within six weeks of ordering! I understand what you mean about being nervous finding a flattering dress without trying it on first, but this particular dress is very flattering probably on all body types. What I did was try on similar styles in boutiques (I already had my eye on this one months before), so I could get a good idea of which silhouette etc. I wanted before I purchased online.

I am obsessed with sleeves! I don’t have many pics back from our wedding yet, but here are a couple where you can see them (…the 2nd photo being from a photobooth after a few glasses of chardonnay wink). I can’t wait to see yours with the sleeves added, it will be a STUNNER!

That dress is beautiful!  I love Claire Pettibone. May I ask why you want to add sleeves?  I’m curious just because Claire Pettibone dresses are works of art, so I’d be hesitant to alter it in anyway especially with trying to match the lace etc. 


Good luck and keep us posted!
