While we’ve been loving long sleeved wedding dresses since Princess Grace brought them in in 1956, (and Princess Kate brought them back in 2011), these sleeves are more than just long and lacey.

They’re beaded, sequinned, embroidered and scalloped. They’ve flutter sleeves, fitted sleeves and flowing sleeves. They’re capped at the shoulders, nipped at the elbows or grazing the wrist.

They’re ornate, embellished, and dramatic.

And they are beautiful.

Serious wow factor.

If you’re looking for a subtle look, you could opt for something as simple a lacy capped sleeve, or if a show-stopper is what you’re after, a jewel-encrusted sleeve on a backless gown would be just epic!

Let us know which gown is your favourite – we’d love to know!
