A wedding dress is perhaps the most carefully chosen dress a woman will ever wear. Our gown collection gives you plenty of options to choose from and you are sure to find a wedding dress that is just right for you at BHLDN! Plus, our online shop makes finding “the one” a breeze. As you narrow down your favorite wedding day looks, think about silhouette, style, neckline, and season. Keep this same mindset as you search for your perfect bridesmaids dresses and mother of the bride dresses to complete your bridal party!
One especially well-loved bridal gown style is that of a long sleeve lace wedding dress. (We probably all remember how Kate Middleton perfected this iconic look!) Part of the appeal is that there are both aesthetic and practical reasons why you might consider choosing a lace wedding dress with long sleeves. Not only do the long sleeves provide arm coverage – which might be appreciated by some brides who don’t want to bare all – this style can also be more seasonally appropriate in colder months. A lace wedding dress with sleeves will also help display the beauty and intricacy of the lace pattern itself. Finally, lace long sleeves can embellish and elevate just about any wedding dress in unexpected ways for an unforgettable appearance. Just wait until you see your wedding photos!
Our color charts online have been adjusted to display color as close as possible to the color of the actual fabrics. However, camera resolution and computer monitors can mean the color may vary slightly between the photos and the actual fabric. Colors are subject to the actual dresses you get. We suggest you order a fabric swatch to view colors in person.
Remain on track as well as you'll be impressed at your outcomes. Consume well, beverage a lot of water and as you progress, merely picture your groom seeing you for the first time in your wedding gown and viewing his jaw drop in speechless silence.
This article is a liar. The reason that wedding sizes are different from regular American sizes isn’t that we’re “more athletic” or any such nonsense. We’re as sedentary as we’ve always been, if not more. Also, that’s stupid, because if we were more athletic, we’d have smaller waists, not bigger. The real reason the sizes are different is because of vanity sizing. (look it up.) Marilyn Monroe used to wear a size 12 on average, but her measurements would correspond to a modern-day size 6 (size 4 if you shop at the gap and other “generous” sizers). You see, over time, clothing manufacturers have assigned smaller and smaller numbers to the same measurements to try and flatter their customers. I remember when I was a teen I wore a women’s size 5/6. Now, 20 years later, I’m 20 lbs heavier, but I still wear a women’s 5/6. I haven’t gotten any more “athletic”, believe me. And I try on my size 5/6 pants from the 90s and I can’t even get them over my thighs, much less zip or button them.
In our Plus Size Wedding Dress Julietta collection, we embrace the idea that beautiful isn't always a size zero, committing to our vision of making gorgeous wedding dresses every woman can feel special in. Designing specifically for the curvaceous bride, we create meticulously crafted dresses that make a fantasy wedding accessible for plus-size, trendy ladies who appreciate fine style.
If a full-on lace gown isn’t your thing, you can still choose a dress with lace highlights. You will look just as dream-like to your partner walking down the aisle in a non-lace wedding dress that has a lace neckline, lace panels, or lace embellishments. And, of course, there are always traditional lace veils – which can be worn no matter what material your actual wedding dress is made from.
If you saw any bridal shows in the last few months, capes are one of the biggest trends right now in the fashion design. Capes can be a great addition to a wedding dress because they can be worn instead of veils. Some capes are long, spreading all the way to the floor, covering the long back of the dress. These capes can give a unique, royal look to your wedding dress. Capes can be made out of lace or any type of material that will compliment a white gown color.
