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!
