Throughout history, women have tried to make their wedding dress special, to suit the festive occasion, to make old fashioned sleeve gown the beautiful bride more beautiful and the not so beautiful at least splendid to look at. Considering the present time with the current trend of wedding fashion in which the wedding dresses with short sleeves, spaghetti straps or those that are sleeveless are definitely getting more popular.
We can always look at a different perspective, looking back at an old time, doing things the unordinary way and to add a little touch of formality to your wedding day. Perhaps you will be wearing your mother, or grandmother’s, lacy old-fashioned dress. I’m sure they will cry their heart out.
Modern and classic sleeve type wedding dress
the modern touch of a past time sleeve style wedding dress, of course, the modern long sleeve wedding dress need not follow its ancient look from medieval eras which cover everything from top to toe. It can be sexy and hot as well. Have the sleeves made of a lighter mesh material and then pick an off the shoulder neckline there you have a portrait neckline or a low v-neck cut showing your fabulous cleavage.
On the other hand, if you are the more conservative and traditional girl, depending on your place of worship, your family traditions, and your personal taste, wearing a conservative gown can be a way to ensure that you are comfortable on your special day.
A general rule is, if you aren’t comfortable showing cleavage when you go out on a Saturday night, then you probably won’t want to on your wedding day, either! An elegant, long-sleeved gown is the perfect gown if you don’t want to feel self-conscious on your wedding day, and you want your dress to be a just little more modest.
Long and short sleeve
Sleeve wedding dresses can be separated into two categories which are a long long type of sleeve wedding dress sleeves and short sleeve. Long sleeve wedding dresses basically cover Poet sleeve, Bell sleeve, illusion sleeve, Juliet sleeve, Balloon sleeve, and Three-quarter sleeve.
While the short sleeve wedding dresses cover the Petal sleeve, Cap sleeve and the T-shirt sleeve which is quite a hit nowadays.
Considering if you are getting married in winter time, a sleeve wedding gown would be on top of your list. This dramatic look is done best with lace, crushed velvet, or satin. Sleeves should be fitted but not too snug. When it’s cold outside, you’ll be warm and comfortable. Consider pairing your long-sleeved wedding dress with a pair of formal gloves and you are the well-prepared bride on a snowy wedding day.
Though many expect a strapless, or even a skimpy, wedding dress for a beach wedding, wearing wedding dresses with sleeves is a fabulous unusual alternative. You will be the picture of elegance; demure and romantic in long, lacy sleeves. How unexpected.
If you are having a beach wedding at a cooler time of year, wearing a dress that has a little more fabric to it will help ensure that you were comfortable.
Tips and nips
A big no for the girl who is small in stature or petite cutie type, long sleeves just aren’t suitable for you. You should just consider having a sleeveless gown if you have beautiful, well-toned arms and a beautiful hourglass figure.
If you have a square body, go for a bigger sleeve like a balloon or Juliet. Also, the sleeves do not necessarily have to be of the same material as of the dress. Tulle, lace or illusion netting is some of the fabric material which can be used as sleeves.
Out of the boxed
Maybe a Santa Claus wedding isn’t such a bad idea at all.
I’ll call it Santa gown.
But I personally like this type of sleeve wedding dress pretty much. It is vintage but with a touch of sense of modern elegant style.
