Stunning Wedding Dress with Lace Sleeves + Open Back

Have you found the perfect wedding dress yet? If not, don’t feel overwhelmed or hurried.

The one that stays with you in the back of your mind is usually the one; then you have to try it on just to be sure.

So, speaking of wedding dresses, you have got to have a glimpse of this new beauty from Chaviano Couture. Talented designer Annette Thurmon has been one of my favorites since I stumbled upon her boutique. I’m an even bigger fan since discovering this stunning wedding dress with lace sleeves and an open back. I’ve been dying to share it with you.

I love this wedding dress because it’s sophisticated. Elegant. It covers your arms in the fall and winter months so you don’t freeze, yet it shows off your figure just right. It’s the loveliest wedding dress with sleeves I’ve seen yet and I’ve seen many especially with this being one of the hottest trends. Lace sleeves and an open back is a gorgeous combination.
