    I love love love sleeves on wedding dresses; I prefer them shorter only because I live in Texas and it is HOT 🙂 To me, they look, well, *bridal*: classy, elegant, and way more flattering than strapless dresses! I was so disappointed when shopping for my own dress at the number of options for strapless-opposed brides, especially when I found out they assumed it was for “religious reasons”. Can’t a girl want to cover her bare shoulders on her wedding day?

    I love this site am also a fan of covered or sleeve wedding dresses i think they are more elegant, gorgeous and classy for a reason when i think of wedding i dont think of sexy but simple royal or princess-like dresses. But unfortunately there are alot of strapless and revealing dresses than the covered ones

    I was married 10 yrs ago and the trend toward sleeveless/strapless was beginning. I am a real woman with curves and wanted to be elegant not trashy. I chose long sleeves but have since been mocked for my “80’s style dress with sleeves”. Looking forward till the trend will swing back to “my style of dress”. I had about 80% women loving my dress but they were over the age of 25 & conservative. Young women these days are sluts and all they want to show is skin or at least they are brain-washed into thinking “more skin is chic”. Here’s to the new bride of modesty and class!
