Are wedding dresses with sleeves a big no?
I’m still looking for the ideal dress, at first I started looking for a ball gown, ever since I was a little girl I always said I would get married in a huge ball gown but I’m not a little girl anymore, my expectations were not realistic and I fell in love with a totally different wedding dress. In fact I have two favorites at the moment and both of them have sleeves. I love how they look and I think they will be kinda helpful since the wedding will happen very close to winter and it might get really cold. The problem with the sleeves is that I have yet to see someone I know get married in a wedding dress with sleeves, when I showed some friends the dresses I loved they were almost horrified, they told me that I was young and had to show some skin. I go through all the threads here where the brides to be show their wedding dresses and no sleeves. Is it too old fashioned?

Pippa28: It depends entirely on what kind of sleeves they are. Pics would be helpful.

I love sleeves. I like a more modest wedding dress. I am so glad srtapless is trending out! I want to show skin to my husband, only, after teh wedding. I wanted to look pretty on my wedding day, not sexy. My dress had cap sleeves, but I had a late spring wedding. I love long sleeves too. Just look at Grace Kelly or Kate Middleton if you want to see gorgeous sleeves. Kate and Grace are above. Seriosly, could you be more breathtaking than those two?

Mrs.Sawyertobe: I live in the UK and traveled to London just to get a glimpse of Kate on her wedding day, she looked gorgeous and I loved her dress. I love your cap sleeves, you were a really beautiful bride, that’s how I want to look like on my wedding day, beautiful and not sexy, there’s plenty of time to be sexy after the wedding.

Pippa28: Sleeves are definitely lovely and I was really into them! I ended falling in love with a strapless but sleeves are AMAZING!

I think sleeves are gorgeous! I’m opting for off-the-shoulder straps for my dress. The only problem with sleeves in my opinion is that it seems to me like if you get sweaty from heat or dancing the night away they could get uncomfortable. It might be more versatile to get a sleeveless dress and a lace bolero or something.
Have you tried on any dresses yet? Because that can change your opinions a lot too 🙂

The ones you chose are so nice and not matronly looking at all!! I usually don’t like sleeves but those two dresses changed my mind!

Well, neither my wedding nor my reception dress are like the dresses I always see. I opted for spaghetti straps for the wedding dress. The reception dress is technically sleeveless, but there is no chest showing at all. I did want to be sexy but still classy with a vintage flair. I did not want the usual sleeveles ball gown, mermaid, etc. dress that I see all the time. I march to the beat of my own drum, though. Both of the dresses you put up are totally lovely!!! Follow your own instincts about what type of dress you want, and like the best! Good luck!

I think sleeves really add elegance to a dress. I wouldn’t look at either of those dresses and think matronly! I think they’re gorgeous & elegant!

Those dress are beautiful, make sure you can lift your arms up in them though. I found I couldn’t lift my arms up in off the shoulder dresses. Don’t worry about not seeing anyone else wearing something similar, that’s the best part, it’s unique! I haven’t seen anyone wear my dress or really anything that looks like it and that’s one of the reason I love it!
