So, I guess we can thank Kate Middleton for ushering in the trend of the modest bride, cuz honey child, sleeves are in! More and more wedding gowns are coming with sleeves already attached (novel idea, no?), and it's making it easier and easier for modest women everywhere to get bridal gowns that don't need to be completely altered to meet modest specifications. Gone can be the days of choosing a strapless, sleeveless wedding gown and building it up--makes me kind of happy that I have yet to get myself one of these bad boys! With these fresh-off-the-runway gowns from Monique Lhullier, Oscar de la Renta, Theia, Temperly London, and Marchesa, I see a bright and modest future in your bridal dreams. Now all of these are not necessarily perfection in the way of full on modesty, but hey, we gotta start somewhere.

And now for some real brides (that I found on Pinterest) who totally and completely rocked the modest looks at their wedding--and they're not even on OnlySimchas. See, real women do like sleeves!
