Mix and Match Embroidered Tops with Silk Skirts A lot of brides are beginning to lean towards wearing separates because the individual pieces can be incorporated in their wardrobes after the big day.

If you want that elegant structure in your bridal look, go for the top with butterfly sleeves. We’ve seen a lot of brides who are drawn to the style of the butterfly sleeves because of its shape. And we do think that it makes you stand tall and appear so graceful.
