Love the Long Sleeve
One of my favourite highlights from the 2015 bridal collections is the long lace sleeve. Whether you wish to cover up in the cooler months, accentuate your collar bones or highlight your wedding dress bustier shape (sweetheart being a firm favourite b.t.w) – wearing a long sleeve wedding dress needn’t be amish like but in fact incredibly elegant and stylish.
I’ve picked out the Monique Lhuillier Fabienne & Sarah dress below, which are ideal for the bride who wants to show off a longer neckline or tall frame. And for those brides wanting to show off their gorgeous bust, collar bones or shoulders then you’ll love these Pronovias wedding dress designs, Capricornio & Bellamy.
You’ll notice hair & accessories are minimal. Lace and any embellishment on the lace make for a showstopper of a wedding dress, so its best to avoid loud jewellery, hair & accessories. I really love the crystal head pieces from the Monique Lhuillier show as the simplicity of the pulled back hair & bun allow the wedding dress & head pieces to take centre stage, and of course you wearing the dress!
Lace is by nature intricate and delicate so care and attention is the best way forward when handling & storing a lace wedding dress. For that very reason I’d avoid wearing a necklace where any claws could catch on the lace risking a tear & in fact you may need to question if you need the necklace.
So I’ll share my last two favourites from the Pronvias bridal collection and now you can see if you too share in the love for lace sleeves. Let me know your thoughts in the comment box below!
