Are you looking for a long-sleeve wedding dress?
Brides want to wear long sleeves for many great reasons, like colder temperatures or more traditional wedding venues. Of course, we’re all for that here at Wedding Pioneer, but we’d also like to add our reason why long sleeves and wedding dresses are a fabulously romantic combo.
It’s called fashion, darlings!
With so many styles and fabrics to choose from, you can create a wedding day look with gorgeous and comfortable sleeves and be the best vision of you as a beautiful bride.
We can’t wait to show you what we found. So let’s get into this!
A Short Intro to Our Long Sleeve Selections
Lace has been the go-to material for long sleeves on a wedding dress for countless years, and we’ve got beautiful examples of this timeless look. But, there’s so much more to explore (including trendy wedding crop tops with long sleeves!).
For minimalists, we have your inspo (think Meghan Markle’s Givenchy wedding gown with sleek and stunning 3/4 sleeves).
We’ve brought the whimsy with lovely long bell sleeves and angelic tulle puffs for the boho bride.
We have long-sleeved wedding dresses for lovers of history inspired by the Celtic and Victorian periods and an empire-waisted dress with sleeves. We also found a dramatic black wedding dress with sleeves for our goth brides!
For any rebel bride who wants to rock a different look, we selected boleros for your ceremony or a long-sleeved mini dress you can wear during your reception.
Rustic Brides Rule in Dreamy Cotton Bell-Sleeved Dress
Sometimes, true boho style comes with a cost, but we like the price point on this rustic-chic homemade wedding dress.
The cotton gauze and delicate patterned lace design make this long-sleeved boho wedding gown perfect for the beach or a barn setting.
Since we’re talking about long sleeves, this gorgeous gown also features our favorite style, the super-romantic bell sleeve!
Flaunt the deep V neckline or soften it up with a simple cami in off-white or a hint of blush pink if you chose a faux floral crown.
This style would also look great with layered necklaces and a cultured pearl drop lariat resting on your collarbone.
Long-Sleeved Chiffon Perfection for a Winter Wedding
This selection’s gorgeous photos and video on the dressmaker’s page have it styled as a long-sleeved winter wedding dress. It’s a perfect look for the colder season, but it’s just as ideal from late fall until the early spring. Maybe that’s why this dress is called the “Pretty Flower!”
It’s a well-made and fully lined garment with embroidered lace detailing joining the bodice to the skirt.
Our favorite details here are the vertical darting adding femininity under the bosom and the delicate flare on the sleeves at the wrists.
Much Love for a Long-Sleeve Wedding Dress
When we see a gorgeous lace and tulle long-sleeved wedding dress, it’s always time to rejoice, and when the dress flatters every figure, our delight goes into overdrive!
The rich ivory color of this dress brings out the warmth and glow in every skin tone, and the lacy bodice has a romantic V-neck (not too deep or daring) with soft, delicate sleeves that move with you.
Two layers of silk tulle go into that beautiful skirt, and every lucky bride who wears this should feel like a queen.
Empire Waist on a Long-Sleeved Earth Angel Dress
Here’s a style that marries fantasy with history!
Grecian goddesses inspire the design with a high empire waist flowing into an A-line skirt. A high slit adds seductive flair to the bottom, while the narrow lacy bodice defines the bust.
Of course, it’s the exquisite cape-style sleeves like angel wings that make this gorgeous bridal look, and we love how the super-long sleeves blend seamlessly into the chiffon train at the back of this stunning dress.
Mermaid Wedding Dress With Sparkling Puff Sleeves
Sequins, lace, and tulle work beautifully in this elaborate mermaid silhouette with long sparkling puff sleeves!
This design is very body-conscious with a plunging V-neckline and an open back, and the long billowy sleeves add elegance to the overall look.
The flare on the skirt begins above the knee, so it will be comfortable to wear, and we love how the fishtail train will swirl around your feet in pictures and on video.
Wild and Historic Wedding Dress in Goth Black Silk
Long sleeves ending with a tip on the wrist and black buttons on the side.
Goth brides become queens on their big day in this wild silk and black tulle gown with historically accurate details!
There’s so much gorgeous style going on with this unique dress; everything from the pearl-covered bustier finished by hand to the regally round, fully-lined skirt.
Our favorite detail is the puff-shouldered sleeves narrowing the arm and adorned with black buttons with lacy tips at the wrist.
Off-the-Shoulder Drama With Long Romantic Puff Sleeves
This dress is customizable.
This off-shoulder princess gown is super-sexy!
The deep V-neck and high-slit require an extra helping of confidence, but with a floating cloud of tulle in the skirt and, particularly, those romantic puff sleeves, you’ll look equally elegant on your big day.
Victorian Wedding Style With High-Neck and Long Sleeves
The Victorian-style wedding dress had a good run with brides throughout the 1980s. Historical dramas like Bridgerton, Downton Abbey, and Outlander are so popular today that historically-influenced dresses like this beautiful Victorian design are getting renewed interest from brides.
With its high lace neck, flouncy bodice, and softly puffed sleeves with lace detailing at the wrists, this romantic wedding dress will have your guests swooning!
Fairy Sleeves on a Celtic Fusion Dress
The natural, earthy materials of cotton lace and jute fiber work beautifully to create this exceptional ivory long-sleeve wedding gown; a fusion of Medieval style and fairytale influences.
You can wear Celtic-inspired jewelry to flatter the rounded neckline and just let this gorgeous garment do the rest!
That wide corseted back amazed us, and those long, linen net sleeves like fairy wings are sheer perfection.
A Beautiful Bride in Long Lacy Bell Sleeves
Confession: long lacy bell sleeves are our fashion weakness! So when we saw this beautiful boho dress with those angelic bell sleeves, our hearts melted.
It’s always your best bet to aim for higher quality when you’re going full-lace from neck to toe with your wedding fashion. This A-line design delivers, and we adore how the hi-lo effect on the skirt falls effortlessly around you into a short chapel train at the back.
Note: this custom-made dress requires an underslip, but the designer sells one separately. Check out all the happy brides who’ve raved about this one-of-a-kind wedding look!
Meghan-Inspired Wedding Dress With Long Mesh Sleeves
Did you know the dress Meghan Markle wore to wed Prince Harry is estimated to have cost $265,000 (and that the Duchess paid for her dress herself? You go, girl!).
While this beautiful design isn’t a carbon copy of Meghan’s super-expensive silhouette with a 16-foot-long train, the Meghan-inspired minimalist details are here. We’re talking about the lovely boat neckline, the graceful mermaid fit, and those long mesh sleeves with sweet satin cuffs adorned with buttons.
Minimalist Style Long on Lace
This lovely dress is proof that minimalism and full-body lace go hand-in-hand to create wedding dress heaven!
Again, this is a high-quality material and a cotton lining, not department store lace that can get scratchy to the touch. It’s custom-made, so a bride can also choose some important details like the style of neckline, an open or closed back, or even the length of the sleeves.
While you might choose shorter sleeves or even a sleeveless dress here, we think the long lace sleeves are exquisite!
Long-Sleeved Kaftan Dress Is Killer Chic!
Take the timeless style elements of a Grecian gown and put them into a highly affordable jersey polyester kaftan with dreamy butterfly sleeves!
This dress is off-white in person, and the designer mentions that the material may be see-through in bright backlit conditions. However, you can quickly remedy that by wearing a lacy bodysuit or a shorter underlay to make a perfect warm-weather wedding look at the beach or in the backyard.
Bonus points for this beautiful dress because you’ll definitely wear it again!
Floor Length Wedding Dress With Deep V and Long Sleeves
Here’s a deceptively simple design that will be a dream to wear. The polyester blend dress and lining fall beautifully to a floor-length skirt, and the hint of lace on the bodice goes a very long way, style-wise.
We like how the matching deep V front and back complement this look, and those lovely long sleeves require no additional embellishments.
Long-Sleeved Casual Linen Dress
So. What’s the perfect look for an elopement or a casual wedding at any time of the year? Check out this super-chic long-sleeved linen dress because it’s everything!
Wedding Outfit for Civil Ceremony Inspired by a Duchess
The designer took inspiration from Kate, Duchess of Cambridge, in making this short wedding suit from a special tweed material called ramie.
The light textured fabric resists wrinkling, and the structured silhouette will flatter all brides.
Lacy Crop Top With Long Sleeves
Hey, rustic rebel brides! Here’s a great wedding day style idea for you. A long-sleeved lacy crop top made with love and care in pure white, champagne, ivory, or even blush!
This soft and stunning crop top breathes and moves with you because of the top-quality materials used by the designer.
Of course, they also offer the dreamy puff skirt shown here (sold separately), but you can wear this look with jeans and cowboy boots if that’s how your wedding day fantasy unfolds!
Off-the-Shoulder Satin Dress With Sleeves
Check out this high-fashion dream of a satin evening gown that doesn’t have an outlandish price tag!
The off-shoulder design is awe-inspiring from front to back, and we adore how the super-long sleeve trend works here. It’s stunning.
Short Wedding Dress With Long Puffed Sleeves
Two layers of dense satin create this dress, and it’s just gorgeous!
This design is a minimalist mini dress look with a standout detail: the beautiful, puffed sleeves that fall to the elbow and become long and fitted.
Wonderful for any type or theme of a wedding!
Gorgeous Crepe & Organza Gown With Removable Sleeves
A soft crepe material creates this couture look with a dramatic flounce neckline and a generous slit on the skirt.
The loose-fitted sleeves add to the style, and you can detach them after your ceremony for more fashionable freedom during your reception!
Wedding Dress Bolero Top Creates Long Sleeves From Lace
This wedding dress topper is in the bolero jacket style so it doesn't' require sewing to the dress.
This delicate lace bolero packs a big style punch!
You get the look of sleeves over your strapless dress with this wedding topper fashion. However, the tulle material offers sheer coverage without taking anything away from your dress underneath.
Gorgeous Cold Shoulder Bolero for Rebel Brides
This high-necked bolero has sexy steampunk influences, and it’s perfect over a silk or satin dress with a sleek and unadorned silhouette.
High Necked Wedding Bolero With Lacy Sleeves
In the 1950s, American actress Grace Kelly wed Prince Rainier of Monaco in a stunning mid-century gown.
This lovely lace bolero is almost identical to the bodice on Princess Grace’s dress, and if you’re looking for a regal wedding dress topper, this could be it!
