Lace and Sleeves

I'm going to let you in on a little secret...I let out a scream of excitement the moment I saw that Miss Kate Middleton wore long lace sleeves.  
I think that middle America has come to believe that lace wedding gowns are not in style and are what their grandmothers wore and shouldn't be worn by the modern bride.  Yes, that is a stereotype but it's what the majority thinks.  
After the royal wedding we all know that designers will look to the Duchesses dress as inspiration for their collections, but I'm also hoping that the middle America bride looks to her aswell.  

Feeling inspired ladies?  I know I am!

Sandy - I'm so glad you heart lace everything!

jessica - You're so right! great for summer weddings, but also so romantic for winter weddings too

Ilene - I'm swooning for the short one! I've been searching for a potential dress with lace sleeves to change into late into the reception in attempts to not ruin my wedding gown

Laura - I'm glad I wasn't the only one too! I will be dusting off my sketch book after that wedding for sure!

I LOVED her lace sleeves as well! I think long sleeves are so chic, and these are all stunning! That short number is beautiful.
My mama's dress has long lace sleeves (it is super 70's) and my family was pushing for me to cut it into a short shift for our reception and now I am strongly considering it these are so pretty!

I have always wanted my wedding gown to have lace in it. I think Monique Lhuillier's collection is really really pretty.

Stunning! I adore the first dress. Lace is both delicate and sexy at the same time.
