Long sleeved wedding gowns can make a serious style statement. From quiet and conservative to whimsical and romantic to fiercely modern, the past few seasons of bridal runaway shows prove that long sleeves can be just as avant-garde as other, more skin-bearing details.
Opting for long sleeves also gives you more room to play with your own personal style and show off intricate design details. To balance out the extra fabric, a simple updo and minimal jewelry provide perfect complements to a long sleeve gown. Still feel like you’re missing a wow-factor? Select a dress with a daring open back orsultry illusion neckline. (“Business in the front, party in the back” just took on a whole new meaning.)

Lace & Applique
Brides who want a little bit of emphasis on their veil, but wants to control the amount of lace could go with lace appliques. It could go all the way around the veil or be only on the edges.
Beading & Sequence
Brides that want a simpler classy veil and do not want lace should go with a beaded veil. There could be a design on the veil or have the beading disbursed throughout the veil. The beads could be big sparkly and bright or subtle and tiny beads.
Cathedral Length Veil
Brides who want to feel like a Queen can go for a more dramatic veil length. This is a popular trend for royal brides and makes big statement when they walk down the aisle.
