While dresses with long sleeves aren't the norm, here's a bridal fashion secret: boutiques and tailors can adapt most sleeveless dresses to include light sleeves.
Some religious institutions require a bride to wear a modest wedding gown, so this request is not as uncommon as you may think. However, the Duchess of Cambridge has created a trend--so expect to see more dresses with lace sleeves and other embellishments in stock soon.
Did you enjoy the elegant train on Kate's dress? Brides planning an Atlantic City beach wedding should take note of Kate's sister, Pippa. Pippa dutifully performed her maid of honor obligations by minding the train of her sister's dress.
While wedding dresses are cleaned before they are preserved, the maid of honor can prevent dirt and sand from clinging to the bride's dress in excess--especially during a beach wedding--by assisting the bride with her train when she moves.
