Modern-day brides can be fashionable with long sleeve wedding dresses. Who says you can’t play with the design and come up with something sexy and stunning? Long sleeves aren’t just for the modest and conservative. It can also be worn by brides who love its classic and elegant look. If you also want to keep away from the common pack of brides going for spaghetti straps and sleeveless gowns, this is the way to do it.
Using beautiful and intricate lace design as material for the sleeves is totally pleasing to the eyes. If you want drama and exaggeration, choose long trumpet sleeves or ruffle trims on the cuff. The wedding guests and your groom will love it and can’t surely take their eyes off of you as you walk down the aisle.
A long sleeved gown is right for a winter-themed wedding and during fall or winter season. It will keep you warm and comfortable. This style is also very commonly worn by brides who are conservative, do not want to show off their shoulders and arms, and who adhere to strict religious views. If you want to recreate the look of the 80s as a wedding theme, long sleeve wedding dresses hit the mark. Puffy long sleeves are the IN thing during that decade. Ask your mother or grandmother about it and they will confirm about this 80’s fad. However, if you want to look like out of a fairy tale movie or just like Princess Grace Kelly when she married Prince Rainer of Monaco, go for the 50’s look. Nothing compares to the classic elegance of wedding gowns worn during that time. The gown of Princess Kelly was said to be made from Valenciennes rose point lace, silk taffeta, and tulle. The dress remains an inspiration for most brides who want to achieve that princess feel during her wedding day. Aside from floor-length gowns during the 50s, tea length was also very popular. The design of the skirt was full swing, while the shoulders and sleeves are made from sheer lace.
You can also choose to keep it simple. If you do not want too much accent, you can pick out something that has simple lines and cut. Go for an A-line skirt made of taffeta and then use lace for the bodice and sleeves. And if you want to keep your wedding trendy, but not ignoring the traditional modest wedding image, you can consider long sleeve wedding dresses in a very fashionable design.
