Cap sleeves have a sweet and vintage charm that adds a little bit of extra flair to a wedding day look. Gowns that rock this feature are usually more sophisticated and modest in nature. 

Modern and contemporary styles will also include this detail to their designs quite often. It’s just another route to take and be inspired by when finding your perfect fit. 

Here are 10 of our favorite wedding dresses with capped sleeves.

Overall, the design features a bit of essential Victorian spirit, the skirt is made of a duchess satin, and the embroidery can be found at the hem of the skirt and at the top of the bodice.

And don’t forget to take a good look at that lace, as it is beaded giving it a little extra umph for your walk down the aisle. There are so many different ways to style it, from a classic veil to loose, flowing curls.
