Whether you’re planning a winter wedding, trying to channel Kate Middleton circa 2011 or just love the sleeved look, these long sleeve wedding dresses are lengths ahead of the rest.
Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses
Ever since the Duchess of Cambridge stepped out onto the steps of Westminster Abbey in that stunning Sarah Burton dress back in 2011, long sleeve wedding dresses have continued to grace bridal collections and prove popular with brides around the world.
From high-octane Victoriana, to sleek and simple sheer sleeves, here are the fuller coverage wedding dresses we’re coveting this year.
Lace wedding dresses have long been a popular choice with brides looking to amp up the romantic detailing when it comes to their bridal look. If it’s a dramatic, Victorian-inspired look you’re going for, a high-neck and broderie detailing complements the full-coverage of the long sleeves as seen at Katya Katya.
If you’re hoping to channel more of an ethereal beauty, the subtle, soft lace sleeves seen at Lela Rose could provide the perfect long sleeve wedding dress look you’re after.
High neck wedding dresses
If lace isn’t your forte, or you’re after full-coverage with a little pizazz for a winter wedding, embellished detailing on a sleek, high-neck design à la Dana Harel may be the dress inspiration you’re after.
Organza long sleeve wedding dresses
We’ve seen a real nod to the Eighties both on the catwalks and in the high street in recent seasons, and this is also true when it comes to bridal designs. Organza sleeves are having a moment. For brides to be wanting to channel the big, bold eighties party with a touch more grace and elegance on the big day, turn to the Sassi Holford 2020 collection.
The devil is in the detail, and that certainly rings true with long sleeve wedding dresses in 2020. While sleek silhouettes and fuller fabrics may be proving popular with the bridal designers as we approach Autumn/Winter 2020, Rebecca Ingram explores blending the two trends with simple, block-colour bodies and beautifully embellished long sleeves.
Three-quarter sleeve wedding dresses
If one of the fuller coverage dresses seem a little too much for your bridal look, then a three-quarter sleeve could be an excellent option. Providing elegant coverage for older brides or those conscious about having their arms out, the sheer sleeve detailing at Marylise is a subtle nod to the new wedding dress trend.
