I am considering a dress with sleeves as a) I hate my arms and b) I am getting married at Christmas and it will be cold!
I am really struggling to find a dress that doesn’t look dated or is basically a copy of Kate Middletons, which I loved but how could anyone compare to how she looked on the day…stunning!
I really like the Enzoani Blue “England” dress (see pics) and was wondering if anyone has tried it on or seen it in a store? I would love to know your thoughts.
Also if you can recommend any other dresses/designers that would be fab!

There is the allue 8900 which is similar to kate’s but not a ballgown.
or justin alexander 9552 (there is another version too)
or casablanca will customize any of their gowns to have sleeves.Pronovias also has some beautiful gowns with sleeves.
I will tell you that there are a lot of designers that are making gowns with sleecves, but you will probably have a very difficult time finding stores that carry more than one dress, that will probably be a Kate replica. I went to three stores that didn’t even have anything with sleeves.
I did try on the Enzoni you like and I really liked it, it just was too much dress for me, but as a ballgown it was beautiful.

you can attach a shrug similar to the top of the enzoani picture to almost any strapless dress.

Thanks for all the info, I will investigate further! Have/Did you go for a dress with sleeves? I really love the look of the Enzoani, I like most of their dresses but they are mainly strapless.

I did go for a dress with sleeves – I had Casablanca customize one for me. Now I am just holding my breath until it comes in and hoping it fits my vision.

I’m sure it will be beautiful! I am really worried about going to the store as I am plus sized I feel that they won’t have anything for me to try and also you can be pinned/clipped into a dress but sleeves won’t stretch to fit if the sample is a small size.
