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.
