    Definitely – I’ve been looking for something with a bit of a sleeve since I’m not comfortable with my arms and hate the idea of them being bare. I love that Kate’s dress had the illusion of arms being covered while not completely hiding them – I imagine it’d be less stuffy to wear something like that during an outdoor summer wedding, too.

    I think we’ll be seeing a LOT of lace in dresses inspired by hers, for sure.

    My dress looks nothing like Kates. Nothing. It is lace.

    I’ve had 3 people tell me how similar my dress is to her’s since. Silly. I have a lace mermaid w/ straps.

    My first dress (victim of dress-regret) had a full lace overlay.  I’ve been trying to sell it, but no takers yet.  But here’s hoping!  My new dress is taffeta btw.

    I do no like lace dresses. I do not like lace period. I avoid it as much as possible.

    I LOVE lace.  HOWEVER, it’s not gonna be making a show at my wedding.  

    I love my dress and I’m not changing my mind for anything!!!!  (ok, well, maybe if a Hollywood designer said they’d design a gown and I had my FI’s cousin sketch something…. but other than that, NO WAY! no changies, no take-backs 😉 lol)

    I have a strapless dress with no lace. I’ve always admired some of the lace-sleeved dresses, but it was never my thing. I like the short sleeve laced dresses the best. But I wouldn’t dare buy one as my wedding dress. It’s just not me.

    I love my dress- its not actually lace- its silk with lace cut outs embroidered on.

    An interesting phenomenon, but it would not hold up as research data. There are confounding variables, and you cannot show causality. It is possible that the royal wedding just increased interest in dresses overall, not necessarily lace dresses. You would need to isolate interest in lace dresses over interest in all dresses.Further, lace is such a common element; you’d have to separate all lace dresses, dresses with sleeves, lace applique — especially considering that Kate’s dress had the silk skirt.

    So basically I wouldn’t read too much into it, but hopefully it helps you sell your dress!
