Let’s get up close and personalized! Sleeves are a major part of the form and function of your dream wedding dress, so best to find the true-to-you variation that feels like magic. When shopping for your perfect gown, there are plenty of ways to personalize your wedding dress sleeves with our unique sleeve variations.
For example, there’s seasonality to consider, so how will you adapt your gown’s coverage to the elements? Then, there are vintage details to mix and match: a long sleeve or bell cuff might just be the 60s-era throwback you’re looking for.
And of course, romantic embellishments help to make your wedding dress feel absolutely and undeniably yours. A delicate cap sleeve treatment, dreamy layer of illusion, or sparkly lace motif are just some of the possibilities!

Personalize the Sleeves on Your Wedding Dress, Dreamy Ball Gown Style
A fairytale ball gown wedding dress is an all-around smash hit for your big day. It’s timelessly romantic, fierce and feminine, and ultra-flattering for virtually any body type. And the best way to put a personalized spin on this true-blue classic? Opt for Orlanda by Maggie Sottero, then choose the dreamiest sleeve variation for your fancy.
A strapless ball gown wedding dress is popular for good reason. The bodice is designed to complement your décolletage and waistline, and (of course) let that straight-out-of-a-fairytale skirt take center stage.
If “effortlessly chic” is more your style, opt for delicate off-the-shoulder sleeves in illusion and lace—a soft and feminine way to add a touch of “undone” to your bridal aesthetic.
And finally, for a romantic look with a little edge, consider exposed shoulders with long, lacy illusion sleeves. We love a unique wedding dress aesthetic subtly inspired by the Jean Paul Gaultier designer era—bold, feminine, and perfectly on point for your glam bridal style.
Choose Sleeve Options Styled to Boho Perfection
Behold: two irresistible ways to personalize your wedding dress: boho-chic in bell sleeves or summer-ready in sleeveless. For Benson by Sottero and Midgley, may we suggest donning these sleeves for photos and ceremony, then removing them for cocktails and reception?
Or hey, keep those sleeves on all night! They’ll look incredible on the dance floor. We are SO psyched to see it all go down in your dreamy, girly, wanderlust-y photo gallery.
