For many brides-to-be, a top priority is finding a wedding dress that feels timeless but still speaks to their personality. A classic gown that nods to one's unique style is the most reliable way to ensure you'll feel in your own skin on the big day. One silhouette that consistently checks off these boxes is the long-sleeve wedding dress.
Gowns with long, fitted sleeves have been a favorite for centuries thanks to their versatility and elegance. And while you may consider a dress that covers up your arms as a more conservative look, modern brands like Danielle Frankel and Floravere have proven that long sleeves can go a lot of ways (minimalist, bohemian, architectural, Victorian-inspired...you get the idea). From intricate lace sleeves to ethereal tulle all the way to sleek satin—there are so many choices for every style and body type.
Read on for the best long-sleeved wedding gowns.
