We know it’s been years since she revealed her show-stopping gown, but Kate Middleton set a trend for long sleeve wedding dresses that shows no signs of slowing. Although, sleeves are such a stylish and practical choice that it’s really no surprise brides have fallen in love with them!
Long sleeve wedding dresses are perfect if you’re going for a vintage style but they can also be just as fabulous as part of a contemporary look. They’re ideal for winter weddings too, when a little coverage is oh-so important. Alternatively, if you’d prefer not to show off your arms on the big day then they’re the style to go for, whether that’s three-quarter or full length.
We’ve picked out some of our favourite long sleeve wedding dresses, but if you want more inspiration, why not check out our celebrity-inspired wedding dress feature too, which includes the Duchess of Cambridge!
Paris is one of our most popular long sleeve wedding dresses. With its stunning illusion neckline and sleeves decorated with gorgeous lace appliqués, it gives beautiful glimpses of your arms and décolletage while offering plenty of coverage.
We love the luxurious metallic-trimmed lace of this amazing fit and flare dress. Combined with the voluminous skirt it creates a look that’s both contemporary and classic. The silhouette also works wonders at showing of your waist without restricting movement – perfect for dancing the night away!
Turn around and the back is just as beautiful. There’s an attractive symmetry to the lace which frames the back and shoulders just so, with the chic line of covered buttons creating a glorious focal point.
A stylish silhouette
Want just a little coverage? The ‘barely there’ sleeves on this sensational lace embroidered wedding dress are just the thing. Combined with the sexy, figure-hugging sheath skirt they create a stunning contemporary dress that’s perfect for the modern bride.
The sleeves in this dreamy design offer just the right amount of coverage around the shoulders and the wrists before giving way to a sexy open back, finished with a row of pearl buttons. We just love the exquisite detail in the gorgeous Guipure lace!
Perfect for body-confident brides, this design will reveal your stunning curves while the illusion back wows everyone as you walk up the aisle. The dress does all the hard work here, so there’s no need for an underskirt. Show-stopping hair and a simple pair of pearl earrings is all you need!
Be a trendsetter
This Platinum Edition fishtail is so on trend right now. The layers and layers of appliqué lace are continued onto the sleeves and enhanced with beautiful beads and sequins, all finished off with a stunning scalloped lace train.
Ultimate sophistication and glamour
The illusion back is guaranteed to impress! Layers of Chantilly and embroidered lace appliqués have been embellished with crystals and pearls. A concealed zip with covered buttons means the beautiful back design isn’t compromised by fastenings.
The layers upon layers of lace give this dress the most exquisite look and the intricate beading is absolutely beautiful! The fishtail silhouette helps to create the perfect hourglass shape, whatever your figure. Wear with our 190 underskirt for extra definition and an even more curvaceous look.
