For years, strapless sweetheart necklines were de rigueur for bridal style. Today’s brides are throwing that trend out the window, opting instead for sleeved silhouettes in a variety of styles. From barely-there straps to illusion lace details to dramatic bells, the possibilities for arm coverings are practically limitless. Twirl Bridal & Prom Boutique showcased just a small sampling of its sleeve styles during our shoot at Royal American Links.
