Puff sleeve wedding dresses might seem like an outdated 80's trend (thanks Seinfeld!), but designers this season are giving them a comeback. These dramatic sleeves made a statement on runways by being paired with either sexy corset bodices or clean and modern gowns. Designers even showcased puff sleeve wedding dresses with detachable sleeves, which gives brides the option to change up their look.

These puff sleeve wedding dresses are totally the new illusion lace sleeve.
