Hell, no! The dress is gorgeous as is and few women look good in cap sleeves.

I wouldn’t- its perfect as is. I usually love those sleeves, but I wouldn’t add it here.

Nope. Unless you really want them?

Absolutely not. Your dress is perfect and gorgeous  (and more flattering) without sleeves.

If you really wanted to I would order extra lace from the bodice to make them. You can look on Etsy for options but I think you will have a hard time to get something to match. You could also call the store and see what options they suggest. They may be able to order sleeves that match your dress. Where I went dress shopping they were really good about pinning things like sleeves on a dress to give me a better idea of the look. You could always go back and try this and see if it’s worth the extra money. But the picture from say yes to the dress looks like that’s how the dress comes because the sleeves match the dress.

I normally love a cap sleeve but this dress looks perfect on you as is. Don’t touch a thing!

I do love cap sleeves, but your dress is absolutely stunning and looks perfect as is. I think cap sleeves would detract from your dress.
