Wedding Dresses with Sleeves

source


There were many suggestions that when Prince William and Kate Middleton wed that  the style of the wedding dress that she wore would influence wedding fashion for the next few years.

 Alison McGill, the editor-in-chief of Weddingbells Magazine: "I think her choice to wear long sleeves signals a big goodbye to strapless wedding gowns."

Veronica Di Santo-Abramowicz, of the Toronto-based Ines Di Santo label opined "Kate's dress will influence so much of the bridal style that we will see over the next few years. It always happens that when a person of royalty or high stature gets married, this sets trends for several years. For example, Princess Diana's gown and Carolyn Bessette's gown are two noteworthy brides that come to mind."



Those who predicted that Kate's dress would set the trend for years to come seems to have come true. Not only in lace detail but also in with the many brides who are choosing to wear a dress with sleeves.  Please enjoy the beautiful examples of some gowns with sleeves that are fitting for any "Princess" on their special day!

Short Wedding Dresses

"A wedding offers the opportunity to express your own individual taste and personality. Wedding dresses come in a variety of styles. If you're more modern than traditional, perhaps a short wedding dress is right for you. The right short dress can convey sophistication and understated elegance while still keeping you at the center of attention." ~ S. Herlihy

So if you are not going with the traditional long wedding dress, check out these beautiful short style dresses.

5 Styles of Wedding Dresses

One of the biggest decisions you will face as your big day approaches is the perfect wedding dress. The process of shopping for a wedding dress can be a fun adventure, but it can also be stressful and overwhelming. You may have no idea what you are going to wear but the important thing is to relax and remember there are as
many different kinds of dresses as there are different kinds of brides.

The style of your wedding dress is the single most important factor in creating your overall look on your wedding day.  Wedding dresses can range from sleek and simple to grand and elaborate.  The style you chose for your wedding day will depend on your own personal taste and the statement you want to make on your big day. 

Mermaid or Trumpet Style

Mermaid or Trumpet style wedding dresses hug the curves closely and are a great choice if you feel like to want to accentuate your curvy figure. Women that are petite may find that it shortens their appearance and so may find this  unappealing. This is a beautiful shape for the fit, yet curvy girl.

A-Line or Princess

A-Line wedding dresses are wonderful choices for almost any bride. This flattering dress shape balances out top heavy shapes and helps hide some tummy bulge. This style is also known as the Princess Wedding Dress style. A most forgiving style, it's a great choice for most brides.

Empire

This is a very forgiving wedding dress shape, great for many body types. Classically it has a high waistline and the seam is just underneath the bust and the fabric below the waist falls gracefully to the floor. Slim brides with small busts tend to like this shape as well and pregnant brides find this the most comfortable shape to wear.

Sheath or Column

The Sheath, which is also known as the Column wedding dress runs pretty much vertically from the shoulders down to the floor and the hem does not flair out, like it does in the A-Line, Empire or Ball Gown. These dresses are usually body-hugging wedding gowns and work best for slim brides with balanced figures. It is also suitable for petite brides on the slim side since it tends to elongate their shape. If you are not super confident in your shape, you might want to mark this one off your list, as you want to be happy and confident on your wedding day.

Ball Gown

The Ball Gown wedding gown is also called the Fairy-Tale wedding gown, or the Cinderella wedding dress. Usually paired with fitted bodices, these gowns flare out from the hips, adding drama and over-the-top glamour. A fitted waist is ideal for this shape and petite body types might find these dresses a bit overwhelming to their small frames.
