@baletrina: BAHAHA that’s the best figurative language ever. 

@natalila: I think baletrina meant that the angels wings were made by Swedish nuns, not Kate Middleton’s lace.

I am overjoyed that she wore sleeves, and hope that this means designers are paying attention. I’ve had the worst time trying to find a wedding dress. I’m a little older than most brides and I have upper arms that aren’t the best. I would be completely self conscience in a strapless, sleeveless dress. I looked on the knot recently doing a dress search-the result, 3459 wedding dresses, of those only 90 had sleeves. That sucks!! And I know all about boleros and wraps and yada yada, but it just seems that the bridal design for the last decade has gone way to far in the other direction, and I seriously think that brides who want and or my case need sleeves, need to start speaking up, and let the big designers know this is what we want.

It is certainly a look, not as “fun” as say, a strapless, one shoulder form fitting gown.  I found her to look positively regal, and I think the Romona Keveza dress of the same likeness gives that impression as well, but maybe it’s because she is also wearing a crown and the train is really long.

It was still stunning to me, and everything came together so perfectly, it will be the perfect picture to look at many, many years from now. So for her, the sleeves were absolutely perfect.

As others say though, it all depends on the intricacy and the fabric and how it looks with the rest of the dress.
