I wore a 1950s dress when i got married last september.I too dont like my arms so i wore a little 50s jacket that i purchased from 'vivien of holloway' Really fab shop (and on line) that sells everything 40s and 50s (clothes wise.) Some sling back wedges would work really well.

If you go for a coloured bolero you can have matching shoes and then you avoid being too bridal and the premium that sellers add to anything to do with weddings. A friend married in a similar shaped dress and wore a hot pink bolero and Mary Janes , her flowers were pink and orange, she looked fab.

I was going to suggest a VoH bolero in another colour and matching shoes too. Ballet flats would actually be great with the dress. Do you have a petticoat?

Lovely dress! Maybe a chiffon type stole/wrap to cover upper arms without detracting from fit of the dress?
