Gorgeous long sleeve wedding dresses for those cold winter months!

So Starbucks have brought in their Christmas drinks therefore it´s safe to say that the summer months are officially over and winter is well and truly here– bringing with it increasingly chilly weather. Although long sleeve gowns are are for a gorgeous look all year round, they definitely have their moment to shine this time of year and we are absolutely loving them! Getting married in the long winter months does not mean for one second that you have to compromise on style! More and more we are seeing brides opting for the long-sleeve wedding dresses and it´s easy to see why! Move over, strapless and halter neck styles- it´s all about the long sleeves!

Tulle sleeves are a great idea for combining lace with other details such as appliqué flowers, beading or sequins!  Silk tulle is the perfect option for an elegant and feminine look.
