What To Know About Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses
It’s no question that long sleeve wedding dresses are a bridal mainstay. Season after season, these elegant designs prove “demure and romantic” will never go out of style. From soft bohemian to vintage chic to modern minimalism, sleeve trends are, in a word, irresistible.
Season-wise, long sleeve wedding dresses are also exceptionally versatile. Lightweight tulle silhouettes can be styled for a summer wedding; satin and lace are perfect for fall and winter weather; and soft crepe is a comfy and flattering choice for any season.
Looking for sleeve trends that break the mold? Personalization is the name of the game. We have dozens of silhouettes available with detachable sleeve options (sold separately) to make your wedding look feel completely yours. Add bell or bishop sleeves, illusion flourishes, off-the-shoulder details, and more. Most of these sleeve accessories can be added or removed between ceremony and reception for a classy “Second Look” vibe.

Looking for bridal dresses with sleeves that make you feel like magic? Get inspired with real bride Stephanie’s review:
I felt beautiful. How cliché, right? I think it is normal to question your wedding dress choice once it is bought and you are waiting for it to come in. I did just that. Once it was wedding day and I put it on with my veil, I had no doubt in my mind that I made the right decision. I felt absolutely at peace and more than ready to walk down the aisle.
My favorite feature of the dress had to be the sleeves! I knew I wanted a sleeved dress for our October wedding, and once I saw the detail and puff sleeve, I knew this was the dress for me. Also, the overall fit was so flattering.
Abbott also has a sister style, Abbott Dawn — two options to personalize your wedding look!
