    Cap sleeves would look really cute with your dress.

    I love cap sleeves and am planning on doing this also. I don’t want to look like like typical strapless bride!

    My experience probably differs from yours as I am a fairly heavy set person a normal size Australian 18, but cap sleeves on some dress actually made my shoulders looked broader! I tried my dress with both cap sleeves (they had little ones in store you could tuck into your dress) and without and my maids and I agreed that I actually looked thinner without! However my experience is probably different because of my size. I say if you have always wanted cap sleeves, go for it!

    I say go for it. Cap sleeves matching the lace of your dress would really make the look more individual.  I agre with you, sleeves really help to frame the face.  I added a bolero to my dress and I prefer 100% the pictures of me wearing the bolero over the strapless dress pictures.

    I think you could definitely pull off cap sleeves!  I’m not a big fan of strapless dresses, either.  Your dress is lovely as is, but I believe it would be lovier with cap sleeves.

    Add them! 🙂 I want to add sleeves to my gown as well. I think they add a bit of romance to a gown.
