Wedding Dress Trends

As wedding season is in full swing during the autumn and spring seasons, every bride to be can't help but trawl through the latest trends to find the perfect dress. The modern bride will observe there has been a rise in long sleeve dresses allowing the option for with intricate lace patterns, illusion sleeves, and the option for an exposed back or high to low neckline. We've selected our top long sleeve trends for the modern bride (and even some inspiration for an elegant look as you walk down the aisle!)

Some girls dream of the princess ball gown look. Whether it is with lace, tulle or satin, nothing is more princess like than taking a Grace Kelly dress inspiration, a sleeved ball gown style. Some of our picks for this sort of style come from Hayley Paige and Zuhair Murad. For a lace top and tulle finish for the bottom Hayley Paige will have you covered, whilst for more of a traditional style, Zuhair Murad's Vanina dress with a satin skirt is the way to go.

A popular concept complementing long sleeves is a front leg split, which lets you get away with extra sexiness and convey that extra added mystery. Pronovias is definitely the designer of 2017 offering lace and soft tulle dress choices with leg splits.

A long sleeve dress also allows you to opt for an elegant cut, and a backless style. Galia Lahav is the choice for this sort of fit, typically with lace, and elaborate cuts for all. Our favourite choices show different designs of backless options from those slightly covered, to those with more exposure.

The final two details which we love when selecting a long sleeve gown are bell or off the shoulder sleeves (we may be cheating here slightly with our favourite choice as it isn't completely long sleeve!) and two-piece sets. Bell sleeves emulate a bohemian type, relaxed feel, more so for an easy going feel. Whilst, off the shoulder conveys a hint of sexiness and class. Our favourite choices for a bell sleeve are by Pallas Couture, off the shoulder option by Berta and a two-piece by Galia Lahav.

No matter what ivory, off-white, cream, blush or pure white dress may catch your eye, don't forget to make sure your teeth are as sparkling as your dress. An at home DIY teeth whitening system could be just the thing for the busy bride-to-be, so your smile will be shining brightly on your wedding day.
