Whether you’re planning a wedding in the cooler months, getting married in a church where conservative silhouettes are ideal, or have ‘maids in your brides squad that feel their best with a little coverage up top, a bridesmaid dress with sleeves is the perfect silhouette.
No matter the shapes or sizes of your bridesmaids, dresses with sleeves feel timeless and sophisticated whether you’re planning for a trendy, mixed bridesmaid palette, an all-white wedding party, or want to choose a more colorful hue like plum, gold, or lavender. All sleeves don’t have to be the same for your bridesmaids—you can opt for a lineup of all long sleeves or plan for a mix of sleeves shapes like a flutter, short, cap, or puff sleeve. Whatever sleeve shape you choose, the effect is utterly elegant.
From classic silhouettes to modern styles, we've rounded up the latest and the best bridesmaid dresses with sleeves.

Lulu's Navy Blue Long Sleeve Lace Maxi Dress
We don't need to tell you that photographers will be taking photos from all angles so it's important to remember that the back of a bridesmaid dress should be just as beautiful as it's front.
