For many years, strapless designs were the most preferred wedding dress style. But despite its beauty, lace wedding dresses with long sleeves have now grown to become one of the trendiest choices amongst brides. Some say it was the influence of the Royal weddings, nevertheless, its adoration will not be ceasing anytime soon.
The tide has shifted post-pandemic where many brides-to-be are planning smaller nuptials and setting the tone to be more relaxed and intimate. It’s therefore important to find the right wedding dress that looks timeless but also to ensure that you feel comfortable in your own skin on the big day. Deciding on the sleeve style can add a personal fashion-forward detail that you love best.
A lace wedding dress is graceful and feminine regardless of the silhouette you choose to walk down the aisle in. A-line, mermaid, ballgown and sheath styles can all feature an all- over lace design, otherwise have accents on the neckline, waistline, sleeves or hemline. The right balance of lace comes down to your personal preference so there’s no right or wrong. The display of such a delicate material already elevates your wedding look giving the dress a modern and romantic feel.
Although covering your arms is considered a more conservative look, long sleeves, short sleeves and three-quarter length sleeves are available in an array of elegant styles to suit all body shapes. There’s something for every bride whether you’re drawn to vintage style, minimalist or bohemian style. Choose from intricate lace sleeves, ethereal tulle all the way to silky satin, puffed or embellished sleeves. Sleeves can now come detachable, giving you two luxurious looks in one: one for the ceremony and another for the after party.
A beautifully crafted wedding dress in a classic silhouette exerts versatility and elegance with either short or long sleeves. It’s wise to consider the season and venue of your wedding ceremony so that your dress is fit for purpose. Long sleeves provide light cover-up for the colder seasons saving you time and money looking for a bridal coat. They look just as chic made from lighter materials to keep you cool like tulle and lace for spring and summer weddings. In case that’s too much coverage for you, cap sleeves and flutter sleeves look just as flattering on all body shapes.
