Cheeky Boho

Boho goes va-va-voom with this flowy wedding dress with long sleeves. A column of tiny pearl buttons runs down the center of the skirt, letting you reveal as much leg as you like. If you love everything about the dress but the plunging neckline, layer a lace or satin camisole underneath.

Colorful Sleeves

While wedding dresses with long sleeves aren't quite as popular as strapless options, you'll still find plenty of dresses in a wide range of styles and colors. This glamorous blush and lavender dress features a large-scale floral print across the entire bodice that continues through the sheer sleeves.

Overlays, Cover-Ups, & Jackets

You really want long sleeves, but you just found your dream dress and it's totally strapless. What's a bride to do? Find a topper, whether a tiny lace bolero or a full-length matching jacket like you see here. This idea works particularly well for when it's important to be covered up at the ceremony, but not necessarily at the reception.
