I have to order a dress soon and I’ve narrowed it down to two choices. One I’d describe as soft and elegant and the other I’d describe as fun and flowy. The thing is, its important to me that I add sleeves because I’d feel more comfortable with them and don’t want to feel self conscious on my wedding day.
I’ll try to attach pics of the two dresses that I’m interested in. I sure could use some advice on which dress would look best in sleeves and the type of sleeve (lace vs. sheer). I’m thinking 3/4 length or longer. The one dress is shown in ivory but I’m planning on ordering it in white if thats the one I choose.

I love the second dress and I would go with sheer sleeves.

I think the second one would look better with the sleeves. I think that the detailing in the first one might be a little lost if you put sleeves on it, while the detailing in the second dress just pops. 🙂 I love the sweetheart neckline! Beautiful!

I really like the first one on you, sheer sleeves! Both are beautiful though!

The second dress makes your waist look tiny! I would go with sheer sleeves.

Thanks for all your comments and suggestions. Well after some second guessing and another marathon dress shopping session, I AGAIN came back to these two dresses and picked the 2nd one! Its ordered! Its DONE!
I think because I only intend to wear a dress of this kind once, picking the “one” was kinda stressful! lol.
The dress should arrive in Jan/Feb so we should have enough time to do the sleeves for the wedding in May. The only thing is…they ordered the dress in a really large size. For example, I tried on dresses two sizes smaller than the size they ordered it in and found them to be loose so I’m wondering if maybe they got the measurements wrong? Has anyone else experienced this?
I know its easier to take a dress in rather than let one out but…could this be taking it in too much?
