80 Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses for Every Bridal Style

Winter brides take note

JP Yim

These days, a long-sleeve wedding dress hardly equates to an overly conservative or worse, boring bridal look. While the silhouette is traditional—and famously donned by royals like Kate Middleton and Meghan Markle all the way to celebrities like Kim Kardashian, Allison Williams, Ciara, Olivia Palermo, Miranda Kerr, and more—modern variations are absolutely breathtaking for your wedding day.

If you’re for a clean and classic look like The Duchess of Sussex’s custom Givenchy gown designed by Clare Waight Keller, a minimalist design is right for you whether you’re hoping for a replica of the famous boat-design, desire an impeccable high-neck silhouette, or want a modern version with a touch of lace or cut-out design. A minimal wrap-style silhouette or off-the-shoulder design is gorgeous, too, especially a fashion-forward version with tuxedo-inspired details or voluminous sleeves.

Traditional brides will love a long-sleeve wedding dress with lace whether you mimic Kate Middleton’s Alexander McQueen design by Sarah Burton, Kim Kardashian’s custom cut-out Givenchy gown crafted by Riccardo Tisci, or Nicky Hilton’s high-neck Valentino couture wedding dress. There are various types of lace to choose from, too from delicate Chantilly and guipure lace for the most feminine of tastes to crocheted lace designs fit for a bohemian bride. For a little extra sparkle and shine, metallic lace details feel unexpectedly glamorous in silver or gold.

For the bride craving whimsy, glittering beads, romantic appliqués, delicate lace trim, or intricate embroidery (Allison William’s contemporary ball gown by Oscar de la Renta is a stunning example of all these details) is exquisite in the form of a long-sleeve wedding dress. Whether as a fitted mermaid silhouette or full skirt with an elongated train, extraordinary details will make your wedding dress pop. For a little extra drama, a daring illusion-style gown will undoubtedly turn heads while metallic accents or a colored sash will appear equally attention-grabbing.
