The summer wedding season may be coming to an end but Autumn and Winter hold exciting months ahead when it comes to a notable key wedding trend this year – statement sleeves.

Cooler temperatures will no doubt make long sleeved gowns all the more enticing in terms of practicality, but brides opting for dresses with intricate sleeves can expect to be right on trend.

Sarah Burton, who designed the Duchess of Cambridge’s wedding dress, resurrected and injected a new life into the idea of laced sleeves on a wedding gown. Not long after, the high street was full of replica dresses.

Notable designers such as Marchesa, Elie Saab and Zuhair Murad have also incorporated sleeves into some of their collections, paying particularly close attention to their beadwork and material. Gather your inspiration from the professionals and watch your Autumn/Winter wedding dress flourish.
