While it's true that short sleeve and strapless wedding gowns are stunning, it's equally true about their long sleeved sisters. And with cooler days setting in (and for all those brides planning fall and winter weddings), we thought we'd give you a peek at some of our favorite long sleeve gowns.
Watch out: if you've had your heart set on a strapless number, these dresses might make you rethink your decision. ;)
This European style lace wedding dress features an off-the-shoulder and long sleeve combination, so you get the best of both worlds. What we love, and we think you will too, is how the lace detailing creates an arc over the waist and hips, which gives the bodice a unique look. The back is just as exquisite with a button up bodice and short train.
Vintage and romantic lovers alike will fall for this long sleeve wedding gown. It features a beaded bodice and V-front and back. Head to the product page to get an up close look at the lace detailing, which is stunning in its own right. This gown could be worn in a variety of venues, from a charming church to a chic vineyard. Perhaps you could even cover up with a cloak for your walk down the aisle (especially for an outdoor winter wedding), then reveal the beautiful back once you get to the altar.
Another one of our vintage-style wedding gowns, this one features a full A-line skirt, long sleeves, and a European-style lace bodice. Nude-colored lining peeks from beneath, giving the dress subdued color. Don't care for nude? No problem! We can customize the lining to fit your style needs. Go for blush, ivory, champagne, or any color you can imagine.
For brides who want to make a grand entrance, this dress is for you. First, your guests will see the stunning lace detailing on the front, as well as the long sleeves. Then they'll see the open back and long trailing train with lace hem. Now the question is, should you wear a veil or a tiara? Perhaps both!
If Emily Dickinson was around today, she would probably get married in this dress. As romantic as one of her poems, this gown features an illusion lace neckline, exquisite lace detailing (look at the skirt!), ball gown style bottom, button up back, and a matching satin sash. For rock star romantics, this dress would also look amazing paired with a cropped jacket. Just remember to show off your dresses' long sleeves!
