Glamorous Long Sleeve Wedding Dress
Ok, so we’re not the first to throw “Grace Kelly-inspired” and “wedding dress” in the same sentence—it’s just really hard to deny the enduring appeal of a beaded bodice ballgown featuring a bateau neckline and (you guessed it!) wrist-skimming illusion sleeves. If you’re a glamorous bride curating a vintage-inspired wedding with glitzy extras and all-night dancing, Fitzgerald by Sottero and Midgley may just be your dream come true.
Flirting with the idea of a rose gold wedding dress? We’re here for it. Fitzgerald features exquisite beading in luxurious jewel-toned colorways like rose gold and pewter, which adds a big dose of dimension and sparkle to your sure-to-be stunning wedding photos. We promise you’ll feel like a star in this sparkly long sleeved wedding gown!
Long Sleeve Lace Wedding Gown
Chic and sparkly Mallory Dawn offers cut and coverage in all the right places, featuring long illusion lace sleeves and a plunging portrait neckline. The illusion bodice hits that elusive combo of classic and romantic style elements, a picture-perfect choice for soft glamour and timeless elegance. We especially love the plunging back and neckline on this long sleeve ballgown wedding dress—a little touch of sex appeal in an otherwise demure design.
Mallory Dawn is perfect for the bride who maybe can’t resist a classic princess wedding dress, but is on the hunt for a more intriguing design and modern details. Boho lace gives this sleeved gown a unique cool-bride factor, while the illusion bodice details add a gorgeous dose of couture styling.
Simple Long Sleeve Wedding Dress
Say you’re a big fan of Meghan Markle’s wedding gown. Say you’re not exactly blessed with a royal inheritance to boot. Cue Bethany by Rebecca Ingram, designed for brides with princess-status taste but without the monarchical price tag. This budget-friendly sleeved gown features illusion lace sleeves and a tailored crepe bodice—the perfect fusion of style and affordable price.
Looking to elevate a simple sleeved style? Olyssia from our Maggie Sottero line features chic crepe and lace motifs in a body-skimming silhouette, but with a detachable overskirt for added drama. Opt for this illusion tulle and lace accessory for your ceremony, then change up the look for your reception.

Off-the-Shoulder Long Sleeve Wedding Gown
It’s sleeved! It’s strapless! It’s off-the-shoulder! It’s Porter Marie by Sottero and Midgley, and an undeniably eye-catching choice for your big day. This sexy style features opulent swirls of beading and crystals over layered lace in a dramatic ballgown silhouette. It’s one of those magical paradoxes in couture bridalwear—a traditional silhouette with sexy details and modern design elements for the confident and glamorous bride.
With the array of gorgeous styles available in modern bridal boutiques, many of today’s brides are looking for a truly exceptional bridal look that sets their style apart from classically styled or simple wedding dresses. Porter Marie is designed for just a flair for drama, featuring unique off-the-shoulder sleeves and a sexy sweetheart bodice.

Long Sleeve Boho Wedding Gown
Deirdre by Maggie Sottero is designed for moonlight and barn dancing. We promise you’d be hard-pressed to find a sleeved gown more perfectly suited to the rustic boho bride. This lightweight and comfortable style is comprised of Chantilly lace and chiffon, with soft lace comprising the sheer long sleeves, bateau neckline and V-back. (Our fully lined option Deirdre Marie is available as well.)
Cheyenne by Maggie Sottero is also soft and romantic, but features a modern neckline and sleeves for a unique boho style.
