Alright girls,
Here is my dress, which I'm absolutely IN LOVE with!!! The only issue I have is that we have quite a bit of family that are conservative and I'd like to maybe add some straps or a coverlet or cap sleeves or something to it to make it a little "less sexy". Any and all ideas are welcome ❤

    Hi Kitty! Beautiful dress! I get it with the conservative family . . but I think sleeves would ruin the look. It's ok to look sexy on your wedding day. It's not too much, just shoulders, they'll live lol

    You really think so? I'm SOOO nervous about the back being so low with the sheer part and my shoulders out 😳 But I love it and I know hubby will think I look HOT!

    Crystal straps that connect to a Y style for the back? It’s definitely a pretty sexy dress but it’s gorgeous. Do you feel like cap sleeves may change the entire look of the dress? It’s sexy but I don’t think it’s too sexy personally. But I get where you’re coming from.

    I added sleeves to my dress so I’m not against the idea. But I agree with PP that they will take away from the dress. When you go to the seamstress, you can ask them to show you different ideas.

    I thought about cap sleeves or even something like these pictures. I'm struggling with what will actually compliment or go with the flow of the dress. I'm ok with being a bit sexy, I'm just worried about being too over the top sexy Ideas please  :) 3

    Second thought after having the pictures side by side in a collage the 1st option with the chiffon sleeves is out. That would look silly.

    Could you get it lined? I agree with Biaani. I think straps or a cover up would take away from the dress.

    That's a great idea and so I just asked the seamstress, she says its totally possible. I think I may just end up doing that and foregoing the straps. At least with out the back being sheer all the way down I'm not showing so much skin.

    I don’t think you need to change ANYTHING about the dress, but you could think about adding a cape like this to make it a little more conservative during the ceremony, and then lose it during the reception:

    I worked in bridal for three years- one thing to consider is you could raise the lining on the back a few inches! This dress would definitely be suited to that, and that kind of alteration should be pretty cheap!

    I was wondering if that would be a possibility. I think if I do anything itll be that because I'm just not sure I'd like to totally change it by adding sleeves

    I think it’s beautiful strapless, glad the suggestion is helpful!
