Wedding Trend: Lace & Long Sleeves

Wedding dresses and trends have seen many different trends throughout the years and one of the biggest changes we’ve noticed is the style of sleeves. Gone are the days of the pouffy princess Diana sleeves and the dramatic 80’s frills & puffs. Sweetheart necklines took the wedding industry by storm in the early 00’s and made sleeved dresses a thing of the past. But sleeves are coming back in a new way! Not just short sleeves, but long sleeved dresses. And our favorite thing about these sleeves? No poufs needed. Just form fitting sleeves with lace detail, that’s our new fav trend! If you’re looking to try this trend out, check out some of the featured gowns below.
