Modesty is no longer a thing of the past, and thanks to the new top trend in bridal fashion, sleeves are making a strong comeback this season. We love the return to glamour – from classic silhouettes to elegant necklines to traditional fabrics, a bride can achieve a one-of-a-kind bridal look.

Wedding dresses with sleeves are no longer antiquated; brides who decide on a wedding dress with sleeves are making a statement that they don’t need to bare all in order to stand out. Throw away your misconception about 1980s puffy and over-the-top sleeves on wedding dresses, because Justin Alexander have designed some wow-worthy designs…

A cap sleeve is a great way to achieve a true vintage look on your wedding day. You’ll nail this look with a delicate cap sleeve wedding dress like Style 8730 and 8754. Style 8730 offers a stunning fit and flare silhouette with just the right amount of lace and luxe charmeuse to give you a glamorous look. The V-neckline and graceful lace cap sleeves create a sophisticated bridal day look. If you’re looking for a bit more coverage, Style 8754 does just that, with a beautiful embroidered lace fit and flare gown and a classic Sabrina neckline.


If you’re looking for an updated Kate Middleton-inspired wedding dress, Style 8765 and 8768 are the ones for you. The three-quarter length sleeves offer just the perfect amount of coverage, but you also get to reveal some skin with beautiful peek-a-boo back neckline details.

Another take on the cap sleeve is seen in the distinct detail of Style 8758. The Alencon lace fit and flare gown is emphasized by the floral and fern-like beaded cap sleeves that drape carefully over the shoulders, with added movement as they sway from side to side when you walk. The beading starts at the sleeves and continues beautifully down the V-back neckline giving it that subtle sexiness.


You can recreate Amal (Alamuddin) Clooney’s charming off-the-shoulder look too with Style 8708. The Alencon lace and tulle fit and flare wedding dress features the romantic neckline, and a flattering drop waist. Everything from the soft neckline to the intricate floral lace design will create an iconic wedding day look.


Pump up the sparkle on your wedding day with a pair of carefully beaded cap sleeves like Style 8775. These beaded sleeves will add just the right amount of shimmer to frame your face, achieving a modest and elegant bridal look.


Enchant your fiancé and wedding guests with the dainty cap sleeves on Style 8703. This classic Alencon lace beauty pulls the look together with a feminine V-neckline and modified A-line silhouette. It will put a smile on your mum’s face, and will no doubt leave your h2b speechless as he sees you walking down the aisle.
