To Sleeve or Not to Sleeve

To sleeve or not to sleeve - that is the question. According to stylists, Ivanka Trump may be bringing back the sleeved wedding dress. When Miss Trump contacted Vera Wang to design her wedding gown, she requested sleeves to suit her Orthodox ceremony. Wang then channeled icons past who had donned sleeves for their weddings, and modeled Ivanka's gown after Grace Kelly's, invoking the traditional and elegant "lace and royal factor."

I have to say, I kind of like the look. With my friends all buzzing with engagements, dress shopping, and wedding planning, I think in the end "unique," translates to "memorable." Kudos to Ivanka for stepping outside the trend box, who knows she might have even started a trend herself!

I'm in love with that look. Lacy sleeves are so 'bridal' abd beautiful (in my opinion).

I loved it because it was so different then what most brides are doing these days. Plus she is beautiful, so it wasn't too hard to make the dress look amazing.

I loved her dress the moment I saw it! I always thought I might want something like that, with lace on the arms and back, to feel covered and comfortable but still beautiful and even a little sexy-- just not too sexy! and this does that completely. she looks so elegant and timeless as other commenters have said, and yes, definitely memorable!
