- Wedding: September 2021 - Australia
awww, thank you! I know this is true – and some people would prefer it with, others without, and some will hate it either way, so I should do what makes me happy. I think I just needed to hear some opinions to help settle my own, if you know what I mean!
a fellow reptile, yay! I get cold SO easily. And ugh, I hear you on the changeable weather, it makes it so hard! I feel like I would probably be fine because of adrenaline and alcohol if I didn’t get the sleeves, but I also don’t think I’d be pushed over the edge to boiling if I do get them, so that didn’t help me make a decision at all, LOL. Normally I’m quite decisive!
I totally looked into these! And I asked my alterations lady about them. She seemed to think finding one that would sit with the lines of the dress nicely would be hard, and I feel like without her support to make it look just so, I’m not brave enough to buy one off the shelf – her reaction put me off a bit, if that makes sense!
oh that’s a good point! I’m all for something different (as long as it suits me, of course!)
aww, thank you! I think basically in the back of my head, I’m thinking that I KNOW most people won’t like them much (which the poll seems to bear out) so I’m torn between doing what people would like, or what I personally prefer. And since people might not like the dress anyway, I should honestly just go with what I love. The only thing putting me off is if it looks tacked on, but most people seem to think they don’t, even if they don’t like them, which is comforting!
aww, thank you so much! I was joking that I should have them with velcro attachments, so instead of a garter toss or bouguet toss, I could dramatically rip them off before the first dance, LOL
oh cute idea! The sleeve length was one she just whipped together on the floor in like 5 mins! I was so shocked! So it wouldn’t have to be that length (although I do quite like the length it is – I tend to shove my sleeves up to there most of the time).
it totally does make sense. It’s a big dress, and the sleeves are just MORE. So I hear you.
This is basically what I think most people will think, to be honest 🙂
I probably do. This might be a nice mid-option. I did originally look for something like that, but couldn’t find anything I liked and ended up buying a cashmere throw rug blanket thing to wrap myself in, haha!
