Just as brides had pretty much forgotten about sleeves, "lo and behold there was the wedding of Kate Middleton, and she had long sleeves."

Urshel credits the return of sleeves in the 2010s to the Duchess of Cambridge's Sarah Burton dress. She said that Kleinfeld even made a replica version of the dress, and though customers initially showed little interest in it, the store redesigned it four years later, and it was a best-seller. "With bridal, it wedding dresses takes a while" for trends to take hold, she said.

Now, brides feel comfortable to wear a range of sleeves. "What's interesting right now is that there are short sleeves, there are long sleeves, and there are blouson sleeves," Urshel said.

There was a wide variety of fabrics for bridal wear ranging from man-made textiles to natural fibre fabrics. They include ribbed silks, Duchesse satin, lace, tulle, linen, cotton, and polyester-cotton. The wide choice of available textiles allowed many brides to make new wedding gowns for the occasion. They were sewn by tailors, dressmakers, or experienced family members, mostly with the aid of wedding dressmaking patterns. Some brides re-cycled and re-fashioned old heirloom wedding gowns into the latest fifties fashion.

I take pride in offering a wedding dress shopping experience like no other. short evening dresses My focus has always been on the individual.

What matters to you?

What makes you happy?

What dress will give you butterflies in, on your wedding day and in your photos for years to come?

That moment when I nail it, and you see yourself in the dress that ticks every box… That moment can be truly magical – I don’t want you to miss out on that special experience.

So you won’t see me in hospital gowns and face shields, taking your temperature before I allow you in the door! These would technically keep me slightly safer but at the expense of the warmth and connection that makes our appointments so special. For me, that price is too high.

Instead, I have made other compromises. And, as with any compromise, not everyone will be happy with it. Some will tell me I have gone too far, others that I haven’t gone far enough…

That’s dance shoes why my decision process has been led by two questions:

What will keep both my clients and myself as safe as possible?
What compromises can I make to offer the experience I’m used to while keeping the risk acceptably low?
I understand. There is no perfect solution. But I have done my best, and I hope the changes I have made will work for you!

The Science
To keep everyone safe, I am following these evidence-based principles:

Avoid close face-to-face interactions

People are at most risk of transmitting and receiving the virus when face to face. As such, I will be using a combination of social distancing, mask-wearing, and marked areas in the store.

Minimize the number of people in enclosed spaces

The more people in a small space, the higher the risk. This means limiting the number of people in my shop at one time, and also the number of people in a changing room.

Minimize the duration of contact

The longer you are with someone, the longer and higher the exposure rate is. This means changing the appointment structure to an hour.
