Adam and I have discussed a winter wedding, so sleeves aren’t a terrible idea. I know it probably brings to mind the term “old-fashioned”, but that’s not necessarily a bad thing. When I think of long sleeves on a wedding dress, sure, the image of my mother’s oh-so-1986 gown with the big poofy sleeves and the feathered hair comes to mind (sorry, Mom. But c’mon, it was kinda Awkward!80’s). But so do these images:
The old Hollywood thing is incredibly appealing to me since I have always loved classic film. So it stands to reason that I would love to invoke a little of that demure, glamorous style on my wedding day.
This is so lovely. I love the bolero, since it would give me the option of going strapless or not. That way if I get warm (you know, from dancing like a fool all night, as I am wont to do once I get a little champagne in me) I can take it off. Big fan of options. I never thought I would like this much lace (or even that kind), but for whatever reason, I really love this dress. Probably won’t end up choosing something like this, though!
This one is definitely not my style (the skirt reminds me of a particularly delicious cupcake I once ate at a Christmas party), but I do like the way the sleeves are sheer, almost creating an illusion on the arms.
I love this one, even if it’s not as simplistic as I prefer. I just think that the bolero is so lovely and creates an almost regal look.
