Exciting Sleeve Styles For Your Wedding Gown

Wearing your wedding gown needs to be as comfortable as possible. You don’t want to feel self-conscious about any part of your dress or body on your big day. If you prefer sleeves on your gown, go all out and get the best. Whether you’re looking to make a fashion statement or simply want some cover for your arms, you’ll want your dress to look amazing with the sleeve addition. This post will take a closer look at some sleeve options.

Lace Sleeves

They are naturally beautiful. Lace fabric always comes with unique embroidery. The flowery designs will definitely make your wedding gown a tad more magical. They come in many styles too, as this post describes:

Lace sleeves create the most beautiful, graceful, lean, silhouette. They’re flattering, timeless, and so chic. Barely-there, whisper-soft lace with just a hint of bare skin below, they’re perfect for winter weddings, modest brides or anyone who wants to give their arms a light cover-up.
But not all lacy sleeve wedding dresses are the same.
To give you ideas for your own big day dress, we’ve put together a list of 30 of the most graceful and gorgeous lace sleeve wedding dresses and lace cover-ups you ever did see…

Puffy Sleeves

If you would like your gown to have a touch of vintage design, puffy sleeves are for you. They offer you a modern version of the back-in-the-day bridal look.

Over the past few seasons, nostalgia á la the ‘80s and early ‘90s has infiltrated fashion in various forms, from voluminous tops to minimal slips and bold-shoulder party dresses. Now, the bigger-is-better mentality is translating to wedding gowns with puffy sleeves as a primary focal point. We know, we know, giant sleeves on a wedding dress sounds super old school—thoughts of your mom, aunt, or grandma’s wedding photos from years ago are likely percolating in your memory—and a little too Disney princess for most modern brides’ taste. But oversized sleeves are no longer an antiquated, cringe-worthy style of decades past. In fact, we’re here to report that big sleeves are officially back and in modern form from sleek, Victorian-inspired sleeves to delicately puffed shoulders. Read more at Brides…

Yes, puffy sleeves are back with a bang. Try them for that wow effect that’ll leave your guests in awe.

Small Sleeves


The look of small sleeves is great if all you want is to give your arms some elegant cover-up. Small sleeves vary in length and style but their classy look is unquestionable.

The best thing about sleeves is that they can be added to just about all wedding gowns. Even so, you need the advice of a bridal consultant to help you decide the best look for your perfect wedding.
