You can opt for a lace or sheer silk material for a more contrasting and surprising look. If you have large arms, opt for an informal wedding dress with petal sleeves. This style of sleeves is perfect for a more contemporary look, quite similar but more impressive, unconventional and yet stylish than cap sleeves or short sleeves.

    Well, these two dresses you posted here are not quite my idea of dresses with sleeves. Informal maybe, but with sleeves… Where are the sleeves? I expected to see some very nice and extravagant type of sleeves here, but i can’t find the sleeves. The first dress has some kind of extravagant, or better said original sleeves, but the second one has no sleeves. The gloves cannot be considered sleeves, right? I would like I would see what you are telling you are talking about in your article. Well, i don’t see the sleeves, but at least the article is kind of good.
