Long sleeved wedding dresses are having their moment and they’re no longer just for winter weddings.

 

If you are going to be an autumn or winter bride then sophisticated sleeves will certainly help to beat the chill factor as well as boosting your air of bridal elegance. However with chiffon and lace sleeves being the trend de jour, long sleeved wedding dresses can also be ideal if you’re getting married abroad slightly out of season or beside a blustery beach!

 

If stylish long sleeved wedding dresses could be the look for you at your wedding, there’s no need to go over budget! Some of your favourite High Street stores have wonderful collections of elbow and wrist skimming gowns with a pretty price tag to match.

 

So this week’s Friday Five brings you five long sleeved wedding dresses from the High Street to inspire you…

Gone are the days that the only thing you carry down the aisle on your wedding day is a bridal bouquet!

 

Fabulous flower crowns have been taking the wedding world by storm for the last few years and adorning yourself with florals on your big day doesn’t stop there! There’s a growing trend for a whole host of fresh flower wedding accessories and this week’s Friday Five brings you five fabulous alternative ways to wear fresh flowers on your special day.

 

Maybe you just won’t be able to resist a glorious flower crown or halo, or if they are too much of a statement piece for you, how about intertwining pretty petals into your plaits or bridal updo?

 

Why not try something really unique by accentuating your waist with a band of blooms, or have your maids carry a colourful corsage down the aisle instead of a bouquet, or if you’re to be a barefoot bride go for this season’s must-have the floral anklet?
