There is only one thing better than a wedding dress with pockets and that would, without a doubt, be a wedding dress with sleeves. Now, we know the weather is slowly heating up here in Aus but we did some calculations and figured most of you lovely ladies on the prowl for your gown are getting in nice and early, so ta-da!
We have been on a roll recently bringing you our fave 25 Embellished Bridal Gowns and 20 Coloured Bridal Gowns. Now, feast your eyes on perhaps our best work yet, a celebration of the humble sleeve. You see, dear readers, all sleeves weren’t created equal and we have only included the best going around from the romantic, full sleeves of Leto’s Piece 28 through to the endlessly sweet detachable sleeves of Made With Love Bridal’s Max Gown.
Don’t worry gals, you can still show some skin with a bit of sleeve with features like deep v-backs, thigh-high splits and uber sleek silhouettes. The Valentina Gown by Prea James counters sweet, sheer sleeves with some perfectly placed waist cutouts. We have a sweet yet sultry backless lace number from Daisy Brides and a deep, deep scoop neck confection from the sweetness behind Alca Line Bride.
We have included a classic all-over lace number from Grace Loves Lace for all you ladies seeking something spesh and a modern take on lace from Amy New boasting original botanical and organic motifs. Karen Willis Holmes brings the bling (fancy beads head to toe?) and L’eto Bridal provides the goods in the form of delicate, Euro-inspired masterpieces.
Bit of a separates fan? Be sure to savour Lola Varma’s v. luxurious Val Blouse and Zoya Skirt combo. We guarantee you will want to pin this sweet set.
Now, we fancy shopping on the couch with a crisp cider as much as the rest of you but in this specific case, we do encourage slipping on a few of these babes IRL. Sydney chicks are spoilt with choice and can find a whole heap of these gems in Love Marie Bridal Boutique, The Bridal Atelier and Hope x Page. Mrs Fray in Canberra stocks dang well half of these beauties whilst The Bride Lab has our South Australia gals well looked after. Duck into Sphere Collective if you are in sunny Queensland and The Bridal Atelier’s Melb store if you find yourself down in Vic. Now, get scrolling!
