Perfect for cool weather ceremonies, long sleeve wedding dresses are back! But they are much more than a way to keep goose bumps at bay.
Don’t think wedding dresses with sleeves need ever be dowdy; luxurious fabrics, structured shoulders and exquisite cuff details make gorgeous arms and shoulders focal points of your total wedding look.
Dresses With Romantic Sleeves
Take the Juliette sleeve. With a slightly puffed upper arm and fitted to the cuff, it emits classic romanticism when attached to a corset bodice in rich lace applique or a svelte mermaid silhouette. Or for vintage romance, a puffball sleeve perfectly balances a ballroom skirt.

Frills & Fringes For Long Sleeve Wedding
Wrist and cuff accents make arms appear long, slender and graceful, and add a flash of movement to those once-in-lifetime wedding moments such as accepting your wedding band or raising your first glass of champagne at the reception.

Wedding Dress Sleeves That Ruffle You Up
New technology such as laser cutting opens up a world of possibilities for aerodynamic forms and shoulder accents that create drama. Layered, wing-like ruffles in soft, semi-sheer fabrics, or butterfly and batwing sleeves that accentuate sensual shoulders and swan-like necks.

& Shoulders With Art Deco Chic
The sharply cut suit sleeve makes a statement in tuxedo-inspired styles that recall vintage Hollywood mystique a la Marlene Dietrich and Greta Garbo. Ultra-long fitted sleeves ending in tiny row buttons on the cuff emphasize a silk-cut silhouette that brims in female confidence and allure.
