I am so in love with long sleeves on wedding dresses! I recently went wedding dress shopping and found it surprisingly that not too many designers or clients are fans of long sleeves. Maybe it’s too old fashioned but I love it! And ladies I DID find my perfect long sleeved romantic ethereal dress. Anyone else a fan of long sleeves?

    I want to see a pic! Who is the designer?

    I had such a hard time finding a long-sleeved dress with a ballgown skirt for my wedding in 2017. Had to go to 8-10 shops and finally created the look I wanted through separates.

    I did want long sleeves...but with the dates of my wedding and it being outside, it would be terrible! I hate being hot lol plus I dont wana look like a cherry in all my photos from being hot haha I am still getting my little white buttons on the back of my dress! That is the one thing i wanted so bad for my dress to have..they're so cute.

    The designer is Willowby. I actually came across a few long sleeves with ballgowm skirts but I wanted a more A-like skirt with tulle.

    I love the little lace up button details all along the back! Glad you found that detail on your dress Ashley! Pics?

    I am a huge long sleeve fan! At first, I was kind of reluctant but after trying a few on...then finding "the one", I just completely changed my mind! They are perfect regardless of being too old-fashioned for some people's taste.

    My mom really wanted me in one originally. I did consider an off shoulder long sleeve one

    I thought I would not go with sleeves and then chose a dress with long sleeves! I love the elegant look of it!

    I love sleeves! Cap, short, 3/4, long, illusion, lace, split...bring on all the sleeves! I wanted a winter or early spring wedding, but FH wanted August, so we settled on June. I was secretly happy when we made the decision to change our date to October because now I get to wear all the sleeves!

    Yes!! All the dresses I would look at were long sleeved. When I saw the dress I will wear, I knew right away it was the one. We are getting married in a couple of days but the temperatures where we are going are much cooler so no problems wearing the dress!

    I’m a sleeveless bride. But recently, I’ve seen some sleeved wedding dress that are really pretty. I think I always viewed long sleeves as a 1980’s vibe. But some are actually nice looking.

    I went into dress shopping wanting long sleeves. I thought they were beautiful, but just standing under the lights when looking in the mirror I was over heating. My sister stood next to me under the lights to see if the lights were hot or if it was just me. Sadly it was just me. Since my wedding is outside in the beginning of October the chances of it being in the 80s were too high. I had to let my fantasy of long sleeves go, so I wouldn't overheat.

    Temperature regulation will definitely be a deciding factor for us brides. I am always cold! I’m not quite sure why, so I think even with sleeved I might get cold and my wedding is in April. Have you decided what style of dress is calling out to you?

    It was extremely difficult to find a non-sheer long sleeved dress as I chose to cover up my arms that are full sleeve tattoos. I found one by Sottero Midgely that was age appropriate and fit the bill!

    I LOVE long sleeves. I’ll probably be that crazy lady who orders a custom dress from Etsy!
