Love a dress with long sleeves? We’ve gathered 12 beautiful gowns.
Just because you want a long-sleeved wedding dress, doesn’t mean that you can’t bare those stunning shoulders! These gorgeous lacy sleeves and illusion neckline are layered over a simple spaghetti-strap dress.
Wedding dresses with long sleeves often include sheer options. This dramatic gown features sheer sleeves and neckline, all embellished with luxurious embroidered details.
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.
This gorgeous wedding dress features bishop sleeves, which are essentially cuffed sleeves that are slightly wider and gathered towards the cuff. Paired with an embellished sash, this type of classic dress requires little accessorizing.
Brides ranging from boho to modern are loving the latest in highly-textured wedding dresses. This bohemian dress features floral embroidery and beading down the length of the long 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.
The shirtdress silhouette is one of the biggest trending styles this year, from casual day looks to wedding dresses. This urban-chic wedding dress is styled with a popped collar, updo, and a thin belt to emphasize the pintucks around the waistline.
This svelte lace wedding dress has a body-skimming style and fitted sleeves. To make this dress even more dramatic, the designer added a turtleneck. We think this may become one of our favorite winter wedding dresses.
This short wedding dress has an adorable pair of bell sleeves that showcase different lace patterns to create a hippie-chic vibe. This type of dress is great for anything from a woodsy wedding to a quick elopement at city hall.
The beaded long sleeves of this ritzy wedding dress are accented by feathers on the cuff. With feathers also covering the knee-length skirt, this fashion-forward gown is definitely for glam brides.
Elbow & 3/4 Sleeves
Elbow and 3/4-length sleeves offer a lovely compromise for brides that want additional coverage, but don’t require long sleeves. This show-stealing princess gown has a buttoned-up lace overlay with fitted elbow-length 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.
