I remember the first time I saw a sleeveless bridal gown in church, say 2002....I was shocked. Since then, it's just more and more skin and you guys are so right, some of those brides on SYTTD really do not get that back fat is NOT attractive. But yes, I do think the trend is finally over. Starting to see more sleeves on the new styles, or at least off-the-shoulder necklines, which is a little more modest.

same here, I thought , thats an evening dress and not appropriate for a bride.... a little decorum on the wedding day would be nice again... the ones that have the lace up backs look like saloon girls, then we have the wedding pics where the bride is lifting her skirt up to her knickers to show off her garter.... come on ladies get back to a bit of modesty..

These are all sleeveless, and while none of them are my taste, I don't find any of them particularly immodest. I guess I just don't find arms or shoulders scandalous.

I don't care if you have the most beautiful skin and figure to pull it off, getting married in church should require a certain decorum. Furthermore if you cannot raise your arms to wave "bye-bye" then you might want to rethink going sleeveless or nearly so for your wedding dress.
I hadn't even thought about that (church) but you're right. Marriage in a church looking like one is poured into a nude body stocking like Beyonce, is insane. It's a bit like someone drove by "the district," picked up a streetwalker, stuck a veil on her and delivered her to a church.

I don't find summer clothing scandalous. However, I think that wedding dress design nowadays is simply uniforms with a difference in the bling and the skirt. Kinda like being a server at a restaurant, where everyone wears a uniform and the only difference is the hair and the buttons ("flair?") Same sleeveless, strapless crap. Some wider, some skinnier, some with more bling than others, but the same old sh**.

And it's all because it's cheaper for the manufacturers, so the designers design them all with no sleeves.

When I was looking for my dress I didn't want strapless, because they were so overdone. I loved off the shoulder style and was sure that's what I was going to get. Well, after looking I realized there just wasn't much selection there for styles that weren't strapless, and I couldn't find anything I liked at my budget. I ended up ordering a dress online for much cheaper, thinking I could always add cap sleeves, but then I didn't feel like going through the trouble of finding a seamstress, fabric, paying for the add on etc. It looked fine as it was so I left it. I don't think I looked slutty or scandalous - I did have my heart set on a tulle princess ballgown because I was 23 and could get away with it, and figured that was my only chance in life to wear one
This was my dress on the model, and on me

Some have sleeves, but not popular. So it's hard to see. But why not popular? I don't know, maybe the trend.
I found some dresses with sleeves in Zdshe.com

Brides should have someone take photos of them in their dresses so they can really see what others see when they're wearing the dress. It never ceases to amaze me when I attend a wedding (not to mention hot weather clothing), that often the skimpiest clothing is worn by the most overweight individuals. The last wedding I attended featured an expensive gown worn by a bride who needed a shovel to put the rolls of fat spilling over the back of her sleeveless, topless dress, back where it belonged.

I only like sleeves that are sheer and/or lacy. And I think it's because back in the late-60's and early-70's, long PUFFY sleeves was the look in wedding dresses, and I disliked it so much. I still cringe to remember it.

The sleeveless is still my favorite design but it isn't for everyone.

Love the dress in the photo above, although the wearer looks too broad-shouldered for it.
