Strapless still remains queen of the aisle but gowns with sleeves were quite popular this season.  Whether it is modesty for a religious wedding ceremony (see Coverup Options: Boleros, Capes, Shrugs) or just because you don’t want to bare your arms, brides looking for a little added coverage will find a variety of stylish gowns offering sleeves.

From short capped ones to elbow-length and even wrist-length, sleeves were left unembellished or adorned with lace, beading and embroidery.

Here’s a look at the season’s wedding gowns offering some variation of a sleeve:
