Vanessa + Terry’s breathtaking free-spirited wedding has us feeling like we tumbled straight into a Moroccan market. Their day had no shortage of oriental rugs, boho poufs, rattan thrones and wild details, and we will be double tapping these images for days. The most inspiring detail is perhaps the vintage scarf canopy focal piece… can’t take your eyes off it? Us either. So prepare to get swept away into another world in these lovely images from Raquel Benito and *weep* over this bride’s sweet surprise to her hubs.
Sleeved wedding dresses have been the rage for a few years now, and with reason: from cap to long sleeves with a tattoo-effect, sleeves in wedding gowns no longer mean being conservative. These beauties from Mon Cheri that we will be sharing today are proof that you don’t need to go strapless to make a stylish statement.
For a very long time, it used to be that sleeved wedding gowns, even short sleeves, were the synonym for traditional or even boring. Girl, has that changed! We’re seeing year after year sleeved wedding dresses on the hottest runway shows, so rest assured this trend isn’t going away anytime soon. Mon Cheri’s designers perfectly balance their sleeved dresses with intricately beaded details, slim silhouettes and on-trend plunging necklines in the front and back that redefine sexy.
Mon Cheri has four different bridal collections: Martin Thornburg, Sophia Tolli, Enchanting by Mon Cheri and Modest by Mon Cheri, each carrying sleeved wedding dresses designed for every type of bride and wedding style.
We are big fans of sleeves because of how flattering they are on any body type! Cap sleeves offer a touch of modesty while also attracting attention to the ultra-feminine collarbone. Check out Operetta style 118261A and Galene style Y11892.
Three-quarter length sleeves that hit around the elbow offer a vintage romance feel with both moderate coverage and the ease of a shorter sleeve. These Mon Cheri dresses are perfect examples of this best-of-both-worlds sleeve: style TR11840 and Gabrielle style Y11702.
Long sleeves can make a powerful wedding day fashion statement when crafted from sensual sheer illusion or form-fitting lace, contributing to the overall design. See these effortlessly exquisite long sleeved dresses: Mara style Y11876 and Clara style 217222.
Head on over to Mon Cheri to peruse all four of their bridal collections — the variety of styles is incredible!
