Is a Cap Sleeve wedding gown right for you?

If you are a bride who is torn between a sleeveless gown and a long sleeve gown, a cap sleeve may just be the answer! It is the perfect compromise and is available in so many gorgeous designs–so whether you are a romantic, traditional, boho, or modern minimalist bride, you can find a short sleeve dress you love.

Did we mention that a cap sleeve gown is also super flattering? Because the sleeve fits snuggly, it gives the illusion of slightly wider shoulders, balancing out your body and giving the illusion of a smaller waist. Plus, they are oh-so comfortable and the available detailing such as lace, beading and illusion looks. Check out some of our faves below!
