For many moons strapless wedding dresses were the most popular style for brides-to-be, but in recent years, the tide has turned with more and more brides choosing wedding dresses with sleeves – both Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle wore long sleeves for their weddings, and when Kim Kardashian and Kanye West tied the knot, she too opted for a classy long sleeved wedding dress.
Long sleeved wedding dresses are a great choice for brides getting married in the autumn and winter, as they provide more warmth than strapless wedding dresses, and save you needing to look for a wedding coat or cover up.
That’s not to say wedding dresses with sleeves don’t work for summer and spring weddings; illusion sleeves are a perfect way to embrace the style without overheating, while bell sleeves will keep you cool when the sun is shining.
Lace wedding dresses with sleeves are a timeless style of wedding dress, perfect for creating a classic bridal look, but if you’re after an edgy bridal look, off the shoulder wedding dresses look lovely paired with sleeves.
For a sexy bridal vibe, pair sleeves with a thigh slit to show a bit more skin, or choose a sheer overlay.
Short wedding dresses with sleeves are a fun option for beach or boho weddings, and have the extra bonus that they help you show off your wedding shoes.
