Despite the beauty of a winter wedding, you may shiver at the idea of tying the knot in less than favorable temperatures. Luckily, there are so many stylish options for staying warm and looking gorgeous, too! Once deemed traditional, long-sleeved wedding dresses come in a variety of styles to make a chic fashion statement. As Kate Middleton has proved, long-sleeved wedding dresses are more elegant than frumpy. We know you don’t want the cold to distract you from the biggest day of your life, so we’ve rounded up some of our favorite long-sleeved looks for winter brides-to-be to help keep the goosebumps at bay.
1. Lihi Hod’s Zoe Gown
This all-over lace Zoe dress is undeniably chic and romantic with some underlying Parisian vibes. Sheer lace sleeves and a delicate bodice lace-up subtly, but sexily, show off a bit of skin while maintaining a classy look.
2. BHLDN's Gina Gown
Technically two separate pieces, this ensemble by BHLDN emits sophisticated glamour. The buttery charmeuse Gina gown wears elegantly on its own and is perfect for the reception dance floor. When saying “I do” outside, pair it with the dazzling Eden crop top adorned in sequins.
3. Anne Barge’s Brooks Gown
Rich fabric and a dramatic silhouette characterize Anne Barge’s stunning Brooks gown. A voluminous skirt and illusion lace bodice redefine old Hollywood glamour, mixing the perfect balance of sultry and modest.
4. Monique Lhuillier's Rhapsody Gown
This ethereal Monique Lhuillier gown is an ice princess’ dream. Aptly named "Rhapsody," the gown features crystal embellishments that mimic sparkling ice in a bohemian pattern of leaf motifs, complete with a fairy-like skirt.
5. Rembo Styling’s Suzanne Gown
Clean, modern lines and bohemian lace crochet details combine the best of both worlds in Rembo Styling’s relaxed yet structured Suzanne dress. A boatneck leads the eye to crisp sleeves in a simple dress perfect for the laid-back bride.
