Since Kate Middleton married Prince William in 2011, long sleeve wedding dresses have remained a popular choice for brides with Paris Hilton, Lily Collins, Jess Wright and Lara Stone all sporting them on their wedding days.
Whether you’re looking to cover up your arms, keep warm or need a demure dress suitable for church, our award-winning wedding dress designer Veni has created a selection of long sleeve wedding dresses that are perfect for every bride.
In this blog, we take a look at some of our favourite picks from our Spring 2022 collections so you can choose the perfect long sleeve silhouette to suit your styling and theme.
5 fabulous long sleeve wedding dresses
If you’re after classic elegance, style 18617 from our Victoria Jane collection is sure to delight. A striking square neckline, chiffon blouson sleeves and distinctive lace-up back detailing create a simple yet stunning style suited to town hall or second weddings.
Fairytale fans are spoilt for choice with styles 69717 and 69726 from our Ronald Joyce collection.
Style 69717 is our show-stopping gown of the season featuring a high neckline, lace appliqué sleeves, beautiful button detailing, 3D flowers and an organza and tulle skirt. This memorable silhouette is complemented by a sweeping cathedral train and was designed with Italian brides in mind who seek a demure yet memorable silhouette as they walk down the aisle. It’s also the style Veni chose for her daughter Claudia and was recently adorned by Lily Collins and Paris Hilton.
Similar in style - and equally show-stopping - is style 69726 - a V-neck voluminous ballgown featuring an exquisitely floral-embroidered glitter tulle skirt and cathedral train complete with stunning lace illusion long sleeves and back detail. A matching veil also adds traditional bridal princess touches.
The vintage-loving bride will appreciate style 18607 thanks to its exquisite lace illusion sleeves and open back detail complete with beautiful bridal button detailing. We think this traditional fishtail style will look stunning teamed with antique accessories and a bold lip.
Bold boho brides can also opt for style 69725, our stylish fit and flare featuring delicate 3D floral appliqués, fluted illusion sleeves and a plunging v-neckline complete with the most breath-taking necklace back detail. We think this 70s-inspired style will look fabulous paired with a pair of on-trend platform shoes.
Wedding dresses with detachable sleeves
And, if you’re still undecided whether to commit to a full-sleeve, we also have a range of Victoria Jane wedding dresses with detachable sleeves.
First in focus from our Spring 2022 collection is style 18606. This stunning wedding dress has a sweetheart neckline, delicate illusion lace bodice and floaty chiffon skirt featuring 3D floral applique detailing - perfect for the feminine bride who wants a strapless style that she can add sleeves to for church or an alternative evening look.
Another detachable sleeve style with bow tie cuff detail suited to boho brides is style 18613, a striking fit and flare wedding dress with an illusion lace bodice, sweetheart neckline, lace-up back detail and puddle train. A daring thigh leg split completes the look, adding modern touches.
Our final interchangeable sleeve dress is from our Ronald Joyce Spring 2022 collection. Suited to the most feminine bride, style 69715 is a stunning sequin tulle and floral lace applique wedding dress complete with a sweetheart neckline and beautiful lingerie-inspired illusion bodice.
