When it comes to wedding dresses, sleeves have always been considered traditional. However, the trend is changing with sleeved wedding gowns becoming more popular by day as demonstrated by Kate Middleton, Meghan Markle, Kim Kardashian among other celebrities. The style has also evolved a lot.
Traditionally, the sleeves were made of full material. Today, the sleeves feature lace appliques, beading and mesh illusions. These, combined with backless backs, have changed the look of the sleeved wedding gowns from boring to jaw dropping.
Brides with a vintage wedding theme, those who prefer their hands covered or those planning to have their wedding in winter are more likely to settle on sleeved wedding gowns.
With sleeved wedding gowns, you can play around then with several variations. As a traditional bride looking to work with a long sleeved gown you would highly likely take Kate Middleton’s route and go for some sleeves with laced detail. You will have various lace options to work with, from the very delicate Chantilly to the crocheted designs.
To add some sauce to it, some lace applique or laced buttons will give you a perfect princess dress. Beaded detail is also a great sleeve detail to give the dress some sparkle.
For a simple bride, a classic and minimal wedding dress is a good idea. A high neck A-Line with some modern lace or some off shoulder lace sleeves will pull the look. A little detail on the bell sleeves is great additive to give your wedding dress an elegant and modern look.
The free spirited bride will definitely love the idea of an all crochet A-line dress. Crocheted wedding gowns are very simple but also very stylish. To make a statement and be the show stopper for the day, get a backless back coupled with some light sheer with lace applique or beads for the sleeves.
