    I don’t agree that you must have petite arms to wear sleeveless or that brides with bigger arms have made a mistake by going sleevless.  I think sleeves, though covering skin, can actually add bulk to the upper body depending on the shape of the neckline and the body type.  I am always very relieved at how beautiful plus size brides look in their sleeveless…it makes me feel confident about wearing mine.

    I think sleeves for modesty or simply design wouldn’t ruin the dress at all.  I do think the dress is lovely as is though!

    That dress is gorgeous as is!  It doesn’t really need sleeves, but if that would make you more comfortable, then I say go for it!

    I’m going to go against the flow and say that I think this dress would look splendid with a fitted, elbow-length lace sleeve. Especially with that deep V in the back … it’s already lovely, but I think adding sleeves would be beautiful. (And it wouldn’t ruin the neckline – it wouldn’t change the neckline at all.)

    I think that adding sleeves would be difficult because it would be too hard to match up the lace to what the dress is currently made of.

    As for the sash color, I think it really depends on the look and feel of your wedding.  That said, I really like the champagne color you mentioned as well as numbers 5, 42 and 55.  Blush was the main color for my wedding.  🙂
