You can always get a topper with sleeves to go over your dress! Check out BHLDN.com-they have some beautiful toppers! This dress is AMAZING – it looks absolutely stunning on you. I think when you see her again in person your worries will disappear!!!

It’s gorgeous. It’s just the stress of having to pick one dress among millions. If you get another you might regret that one, and so on and so on. You just have to commit. I panicked about my dress almost up until the day, but on the wedding day I realised it was perfect! Also, long sleeves are pretty but can be uncomfortable. I tried one on and couldn’t raise my arms.

So many brides want sleeves until they actually try a dress on with sleeves. Sleeves are really tough to pull off without looking matronly. Of course supermodels look good in them because they look good in everything! 🙂 but even the picture you posted, the model is pulling up the dress and she has her hair down and casual. If she was standing straight with an updo you would prob like the dress less. 

Although most people say not to try on dresses once you have bought a dress my advice is to go against this and actually go try on a dress with sleeves (or have you already done so?). That way you will know whether you actually want them or if it’s more of a fantasy. 

Your dress is really pretty and you look great in it.

indecisivebride2017 :  If you are thinking sleeves you should look on Etsy for just sleeves, overcoat, or bodysuit to wear with this dress. It looks amazing on you but you need to feel AMAZING in it. I would say try it on when you get it and see how you feel. You want to feel your best so only you can decide. Good luck!

I was having almost exactly this kind of feeling about two weeks ago with my dress. I was like, i should have sleeve. So I went to try on some dresses with sleeves. It just wasnt right. sleeveless or strapless are the only options for me. So, if you have the money to spend, you should try some dresses with sleeves to be sure if they fit you. in case they do and you love it, go buy another dress. you can sell the first one or wear it for th ceremony. BUT. if sleeves doesnt really fit you, you will be even more convinced about the first dress. also, sometimes what we think we like and fits us, just simply doesnt work. The key is to put it on and feel it yourself.

I think the dress is gorgeous! But maybe, if you ordered early enough, wait until your actual dress comes in and see how you feel when you try it on??? Trying on a sample size is not the same as your actual dress. I felt the exact same way. It’s so hard NOT to look at other dresses when you’re flipping through bridal magazines and just waiting for your dress to come in. Plus, you have to remember that these girls are models, standing on boxes and are practically sewn into those dresses (according to my bridal salon). I thought of altering my dress by adding straps, sleeves, you name it, I thought of it. And I decided to wait to see how I would feel when my dress came in. During the entire planning process, I have been the relaxed bride and haven’t been particularly picky. However, when I tried my dress on when it came in, I instantly knew it wasn’t THE dress and started to cry (which was very shocking to me). Everyone in the bridal store, (mom’s of other brides, my mom and sister, the owner of the store) told me that I looked beautiful and that the dress was absolutely gorgeous, which it really is. But then my mom told me, no matter how gorgeous I looked, if I didn’t FEEL beautiful in it, then it didn’t really matter, so she told me to get a new dress. So I got another dress that day and I’m in love with it. I’m so happy I did, because I tell you…a huge weight was instantly taken off my shoulders. I even thought about keeping my first dress and wearing two since they were both so very different. But at the end of the day, I love MY dress so much, I decided I don’t need the first one anymore. The dress you picked really is beautiful. You just have to decide that if on your big day, when you put that dress on and look in the mirror, are you going to feel beautiful or will you say….”eh….I really wish I would have picked something different.” But that ‘s just my two cents.
