For the Love of Sleeves

I personally love sleeves on a wedding dress- when I married many moons ago, I had cap sleeves on my classic Amsale gown… But, I’m beyond thrilled to see them making a comeback with some of my brides.  Today, we are sharing some of our pretty favorites that may inspire some of you while dress shopping… Love the lace neckline that is carried down into sleeves on this Oscar de le Renta gown.

Here, Monique Lhuillier incorporates different but complimentary lace patterns on the  high neckline and full sleeves on this ensemble.

Here, our bride wore a Chantilly-lace gown and jacket, custom-designed by Nardos Imam. She took the lace-overlay jacket off for dinner and the first dances. And the lace tradition for a wedding day didn’t stop there…a lace hankie made from her maternal grandmother’s wedding gown was pinned under the bottom of her gown to serve as the “something old” .

This bride had simple sleeves added to her Amsale gown for a more formal feel for her formal at home wedding in Charleston, SC.

If you have your heart set on a different look for the ceremony gown, think about something like this little number for your second dress or your going away – by Monique Lhuillier…
