This includes long sleeve wedding dresses that does not only keep you warm but is elegant in style. This is perfect for the modest bride who does not want to reveal too much skin. Apart from that, it is a perfect idea to disguise those not so perfect upper arms! That’s killing two birds with one stone! Before you feel that long sleeves are too traditional or rigid, do note that they come in different variations. Some designs include lace to add that feminine touch to that overall bridal look. Featuring a V neckline that does not run so deep, it reveals the collarbones that frames the face and flatters the bride’s outlook. Not only is it elegant and classy, Carolina Herrera’s gowns speaks simplicity.
In fact, instead of the usual bareback and cut-outs, it has a sheer back with embroidery that enhances the wedding gown in a subtle way. It spices up the minimalistic gown with that extra touch of femininity.
In contrast to the slightly more traditional looking long sleeve gown above, off-the-shoulder sleeves coupled with the delicate and intricate lace details creates a design that is both sexy and classy. The off-the-shoulder wedding dress featured above is not as flashy since it has three-quarter sleeves that helps to retain its modest look. It is definitely a head turner without being overstated. With a slight touch of seduction from the off-the-shoulder design, it exudes the sensual beauty of the bride without revealing too much. You can never go wrong with lace for this winter season!

A bridal gown is more than just something a bride will wear once. This is what Martina Liana believes as the bride replays the memories of her special day in her mind for years to come. Pictures of her will be passed down for generations and this love story inspires Martina Liana in creating magical and unforgettable gowns. When you select a Martina Liana creation, you wear something far more than just a wedding dress. You make a statement that exemplifies the style, the attitude and the elegance of the woman in you.
With this belief, Martina Liana designed a body-hugging mermaid dress that helps to keep warm in the cooler temperatures of an autumn night. It is paired with a bridal outerwear made of soft, luxurious fur. This bridal outerwear adds warmth and creates a sophisticated look perfect for the autumn winter season without the need to pile on layers!
The body-hugging mermaid dress is designed to resemble a mermaid’s tail in silhouette. It is tight fitting and contours the body from the chest to the knee. It is very much defined and is suitable for women with an hourglass figure because it flaunts the shapely body. Some may find it hard to walk in the dress since it clings to the body all the way to the knees. Thus, brides with pear-shaped bodies should avoid wearing such dresses since it makes the hip looks bigger and this would bring out flaws rather than embracing it.
