'Yes Please' to the Sleeve

So this week I have been looking at the trend for lace which was worn by both Kate Middleton and more recently Lily Allen.  Both gorgeous dresses and..... both had sleeves!!

I have been moaning for some considerable time now about how brides seem to go for very similar dresses, especially where the top half is concerned.   You and Your Wedding Magazine  editor Miranda Eason also recently expressed her pleasure in the return of the sleeve in her Editor's Letter from the current edition (July/August 2011) of the magazine.

So come on brides let's embrace the sleeve.  There are loads of stunning bridal gowns out there with sleeves from full length, 3/4, short or capped.  Again as with my earlier post I cannot blog about bridal dresses without discussing  Sassi Holford Bridal, who it has to be said is a real favourite of mine.

Here are my Sassi Holford picks for those of you considering sleeves.....

This is Sassi Holford's Samantha dress (image belongs to Sassi Holford)

Or if you want to keep the sleeves short have a look at Sassi Holford's Georgie dress (image belongs to Sassi Holford)

Sassi Holford's Willow dress would be perfect for 'country' themed weddings teamed with a relaxed country style hand tied bouquet....Think pale roses, scented stocks and herbs.  (Image belongs to Sassi Holford)

And finally the Roseanna Dress which would be stunning for a winter wedding teamed with a posy of red roses. (image belongs to Sassi Holford)

So happy dress hunting ladies and please....consider the sleeve!
