A fabulous addition to your wedding gown, we showcase some of the best-dressed gowns out there… with the spotlight on sleeves!
We all like a little bit of arm candy now and again, and we’re loving the latest fashion trend for beautiful sleeves. Nothing screams sheer class and elegance like a stunning dress, beautifully finished with an intricately designed pair of sleeves. From capped to cropped, to mid-length to wrist-hugging, this style is effortless to wear and works with almost every theme (our favourite look: To the Manor Born…!). Ideal if you’re considering an Autumn or Winter weather, sleeves will lend your look just the right amount of season-savvy style, and the latest penchant for sheer panelling will keep this look seductive!
Phoenix Gowns and Special Day show you how to do sleeves in tantalising tea-length; Pronovias and Eternity Bride showcase romantic lace sleeves accentuating a stunning neckline. We love the lace paneling and bolder detailing on the sleeves of these dresses from Danielle Couture and Casablanca Bridal, and Ronald Joyce, Wendy Makin and Chloe Bridals show you how to dazzle in mid-length lace. We’re struck by the sheer romance and beauty of this Belle by Badgley Mischka dress, showing you just how sensational a satin, fishnet skirt looks when combined with a lace-overlay bodice and delicate sleeves. We love this Allure Bridals gown for its barely-there sleeves effect and plunging neckline; and this gown from Eliza Jane Howell would work perfectly for a vintage-themed day. Kenneth Winston adds a unique and intricate twist on sleeves in tulle and added embellishments, and the full-sleeves in polka dots from Katya Katya Shehurina makes a fabulous fun and flirty statement. For a seriously sensational Maid-Marian look, complete with full satin sleeves, we love the thought of putting on this figure-hugging stunner from Justin Alexander.
