I recently bought my wedding dress. It is sleevless but I was really looking for a dress more modest. All the “modest” dresses were so big and made my large frame look even larger.
Could anyone give me some suggestions with sleeeve options that would look nice on the attached dress? And even where I could the sleeve options at. (i dont like the options at my bridal store).
I was thinking of a wrap but the back of my dress has buttons down the back and i dont want that covered up. I do like the see through options that are also on the back. does anyone know wher eyou can get this at? or even where you can get the material for it to be created?

I would get thee to David’s Bridal. They sell premade sleeves that just get attached to the dress. My dress just had wide spaghetti straps, so I had sleeves put on.
You can see them here:
Other options would be a bolero (them being short in the back might not cover up the buttons) or to discuss it with a seamstress. With a little piece of fabric, she might be able to pin it/hold it and show you want some sleeves would look like (cap sleeve, 3/4 length, etc).

check out “capped sleeves” that are more like straps almost. I’m adding those to my dress.

The seamstress who does your alterations can create sleeves for you. It’ll be a fraction of the price of a seamstress at any bridal salon including David’s.
You can have any type of sleeves you want. Here are some examples, though they will look much different on a real person:
