Simple Wedding Dresses With Sleeves

Long-sleeves can be a very popular option during colder months for casual sheath wedding dresses. In particular, there are several styles of long sleeves you can consider:

  • A classic long sleeve is usually straight sleeve made of transparent fabric with lacy patterns. It will suit brides with thin hands.
  • The long bell sleeve has a full flare at the hem and is a very elegant sleeve style. It is also made of lightweight fabrics, according to the type of lace. This style can be picked up by a girl with full hands.
  • Bishop’s sleeve is fuller at the bottom and gathered into a cuff. It can hide a bit of heavy arms and perfectly complement a Victorian wedding dress.
  • A Puff sleeve is a tight sleeve with a puff at the top that adds a fairy tale scent to the bridal image.



Simple A-Line Wedding Dresses

A-line wedding dress is simple and elegant. Moreover, the A-line design is considered universal, and thus perfectly fits any body type. This style is suitable for brides who prefer not to take risks and stick to the classics. You can add any head jewelry and other decorations. In this A-line dress, all brides will look like princesses.


Lace Simple Bridal Dresses

There are various types of lace that can be used and strategically placed on your gown to embellish your figure and make you even more beautiful on this special day:

  • Alencon lace is the most used fabric in wedding dresses and is a needle lace. It is usually decorated with small crystals or pearls.
  • Brussels lace features an outstanding design and floral patterns and often is used for various wedding dress parts.
  • Chantilly lace is another charming type of lace that has a fine netting background and is widely applied for sleeves and overlays.
  • Guipure lace is special by its lack of netting and also has a heavier texture.
  • Schiffli lace is a machine-made one that is used as an overlay or adding. Also, it has no netting background.



Strapless Wedding Dresses

Classics, we can see from year to year in all collections presented by various top wedding designers, are strapless dresses. There are no brands that do not create such models and the fact they are still in high demand among many brides. However, these dresses don’t suit well every woman.

We recommend wearing it for those who have well-sculpted shoulders and arms in a good shape. Note that the decollete is open, so it will immediately attract attention. If you have full hands, we recommend wedding dresses with long or lowered sleeves which are no less elegant and beautiful. The delicate strapless dress is suitable for girls with long and thin necks, as well as for tall brides. Keep in mind that your image will ideally complete luxurious jewelry and one of the updo bridal hairstyles.


Simple Boho Wedding Dresses

The words simple and bohemian don’t seem to belong in the same sentence.  However, there are bohemian-themed dresses that are more on the simple side. An example of this type of dress would be the simple tulle wedding dresses. These types of dresses are on the big poufy side due to the design of the tulle material without being overpoweringly extravagant.

Another bohemian attribute could be a pink casual wedding dress. The reason for this dress falling into this category is the color option. Alternative colors are popular for bohemian weddings due to their ability to be different than typical traditional wedding dresses. You could easily find a simple cream wedding dress at a bohemian themed wedding for no other reason than to be different by changing the color ever so slightly.



Open Back Wedding Dresses

Neither a short wedding dress, seductively opening the legs, nor a white dress with a deep neckline cannot make such an impression as a backless outfit. These suitable dresses emphasize the beautiful posture of the bride and her attractive figure. Overall, there are a lot of different wedding dresses with a cleavage in the back, such as keyhole back and scoop back dresses, and V-cut opens back dresses.

The depth of such a cleavage also can vary. Some brides are brave enough to show their backs completely, up to the line of the buttocks. Others open it halfway, while the rest prefer completely draped with a translucent fabric style.


Simple Elegant Wedding Dresses

If the bride aims at elegance, she will have to give up the gorgeous skirt, corsets, a lot of rhinestones, and other tinsels. Elegance stands for comfort, simplicity, and no excessive decors. This style is the most sought after because on this special day you have to make the most of it. Elegance, comfort and the perfect fit are three elements that will make you enjoy this great moment and forget about everything else. Because you are the protagonist.
