You look stunning!!!!  That train, OMG!  

I actually prefer it with the sleeves.  I think it makes the dress look really classy.  I feel like it gives meaning to the lace detail across your shoulders, without the sleeves I feel like that looks a little out of place.

I love the sleeves! I would agree that leaving them on for the ceremony and taking them off for the reception would be a great idea! The dress is beautiful, I looove the train.

I like the sleeves. I think without the sleeves the line of lace along your back looks out of place. The sleeves bring it together.

I normally don’t like sleeves but I think they complete your dress!

The sleeves give your dress that extra wow, the top half struggles to keep up with your gorgeous train without them. I’d leave them on for the whole thing!

First of all, I have to tell you that your dress is absolutely beautiful, and flatters your figure in a gorgeous way! I love the delicate lace design!

I would say no sleeves. I think it takes away from the overall design, and almost makes the dress look more “matronly” when without the sleeves the dress looks anything but “matronly” with the daring back.

I like the way the sleeves look in the front, but they look uninished in the back so I would say no sleeves.

I think the sleeves pull the lace around your back together. I would vote sleeves for the ceremony, no sleeves for reception. That dress is incredible, you look amazing!!

Sleeves all the way. What a pp means by ‘matronly’ l cannot imagine. They truly make the dress. 

(Nor, l have to say, do l see how sleeves can possibly be described as ‘tacky’. Waist deep cleavage, crotch high splits, see through bodices maybe, but sleeves……?)

I love the sleeves but because they clip off you could always take them off if you get too warm at the reception!
