14 Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses For Your Big Day

14 Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses

No matter what season you’re getting married in, we love a long-sleeve wedding dress. From elegant and classic to something boho-chic, there are tons of different styles to choose from.

One of the best parts about having a long-sleeve wedding dress is that many designers are offering sleeves as a detachable option. So you could have a romantic strapless gown for the ceremony and add lacy off-the-shoulder sleeves to spice up your reception look.

We’ve rounded up some of our favorite long-sleeve gowns by style so you can get inspired and find something that truly speaks to you.

Simple Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Bo Lee Belinda Wedding Dress

We’re starting with some simple yet elegant designs for the minimalist bride. This Belinda gown is beautiful—made of dreamy crepe fabric and featuring a sheath/column silhouette.

The gown has classic accents like a square boat/bateau neckline and natural waist. A semi-sexy slit in the skirt and a simple court train completes this contemporary look.

Tadashi Shoji Dawson Wedding Dress

Another stretch crepe gown, this time by designer Tadashi Shoji. The Dawson gown features a fun textural accent with a dramatic twist at the bottom of the plunging neckline.

The fitted long sleeves are extra long with small ruching at the wrists. We love how the skirt drapes beautifully into the soft train. A small slit in the skirt allows the bride to feature her flirty heels.

These styles prove that you don’t need a ton of embellishment to look amazing on your wedding day.

Lace Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Watters Frances Wedding Dress

There’s something simply romantic about lace, so naturally we love incorporating it anywhere we can. In this case, designer Watters decided to construct a stunning long-sleeve, all-over lace gown.

The Frances gown is covered in Thicket lace paired with the designer’s custom Vala lace applique and hand-beaded accents. The high neckline is a classic touch for this romantic gown and comes in an ivory-blush color for contemporary flair.

For extra coverage, add a lined slip under the gown or keep it sheer for a touch of sexy.

Allure Bridals 9366 Wedding Dress

Timeless elegance is the perfect way to describe this lacy ball gown from Allure Bridals.

The champagne/ivory gown, inspired by royalty, features a plunging neckline and a lace and tulle skirt.

Our favorite part—the long sleeves made of illusion lace.

It’s charming with a hint of sexy.

This bride looks like a fairytale princess and we’re in love with the whole design.

Glamorous Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Justin Alexander Carson Wedding Dress

Long sleeves can also be a way to add some glitter and sparkle into your wedding-day look.

Just take this stunning gown by Justin Alexander.

The Carson gown boasts regal flair with a circular cut Mikado skirt and crystal buttons down the cathedral-length train, but the main attraction here is the sleeves.

Starting at the v-neck, the illusion bodice is adorned with crystals, moonstones and pearls that continue down the sleeves.

The unique linear and lattice pattern is so eye-catching—your guests (and your groom) will be wowed by this gown.

Vera Wang Lys Wedding Dress

We can always count on designer Vera Wang to delight us with her feminine-edgy designs, but this Lys gown takes the couture cake.

Covered in iridescent beading, this gown is sparkly and sophisticated.

The dropped Juliette sleeves and corset bodice with pleating create a contoured silhouette, showing off the bride’s natural curves.

A daring plunge back and spectacular circular train are the grand finale to this stunning gown.

Off-The-Shoulder Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Jenny Yoo Bradley Wedding Dress

An off-the-shoulder gown instantly adds a touch of sexy, but these long-sleeve options are ultra romantic as well.

The Bradely gown by Jenny Yoo boasts intricately embroidered florals and an elegant Mikado skirt. We love how full and flowy the gown appears, as if the bride is walking on a cloud.

The sheer, fully-boned bodice features a structured fit and the invisible off-the-shoulder neckline is supported by illusion tulle. The dress is truly dreamy and we love that this style comes in plus size.

Rivni Lilibet Wedding Dress

If you’re going for sexy couture, this Lilibet gown by Rivini is an amazing option. We love how unique these off-the-shoulder sleeves are—they’re barely attached to the strapless trumpet gown.

The full gown features romantic 3D flowers, lace and beading. A low back and chapel-length train complete the look.

Unique Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Pnina Tornai Love Wedding Dress

The bow trend has definitely caught the eyes of many bridal designers, and we love how this large back bow creates a unique twist for an otherwise simple long-sleeve wedding dress.

The Mikado A-line Love gown by Pnina Tornai is stunning with a high neckline, low V-back and a modern accent: pockets!

It’s a dreamy look for the bride craving regal sophistication.

Pronovias Lenkois Wedding Dress

Another unique long-sleeve option is the Lenkois gown by Pronovias.

The gown is full of romance with a 3D sequin applique bodice and a dreamy gossamer tulle skirt.

What makes this gown super versatile are the detachable peasant-style sleeves.

The design means that you can get two looks in one from ceremony to reception.

Vintage Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Sottero and Midgley Abbott Wedding Dress

Long sleeves on wedding dresses have been trendy for decades, meaning it’s the perfect way to add vintage flair.

This puff-sleeve Abbott gown boasts beaded lace and beautiful crepe fabric. According to the designer, Sottero and Midgley, the design was inspired by it-girls of the Renaissance era.

It’s simple yet sophisticated and we love how it makes a statement without a ton of showy embellishments.

Karen Willis Holmes Cassie Wedding Dress

Another gown, another era.

This time, we’re featuring a gown from the 1920s and 30s.

This Art Deco-inspired gown, named Cassie, has many stand-out features.

We love the high neckline and dramatic cut-out back, and the elegant sleeves are both modern and vintage in one.

The fine beaded belt is a delicate and sparkly touch.

You’ll definitely want to keep the Cassie gown on your list.

Boho Long-Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Rue de Seine Eden Sienna Wedding Dress

To wrap up our long-sleeve dress inspiration, we have bold, free-spirited boho gowns.

This design in particular, the Eden Sienna gown by Rue De Seine, is from the designer’s 2022 collection.

The gown is embellished with Rococo embroidery with bold column and floral motifs.

The boat neckline pairs nicely with the deep back and godet inserts on the side skirt provide lots of movement for the bride.

We love how the textures and colors play well into this desert-inspired gown.

Wtoo Connelly Wedding Dress

For our final gown, the Connelly dress by Wtoo, we’re seeing a mix of sophistication with boho flair.

The ivory gown is princess-esque with a dramatic tulle-and-organza tiered skirt. The high neck and long-sleeve bodice features beaded graphic lace for a boho-chic moment.

We picture this feminine gown for a destination wedding in the mountains.
