Winter is the perfect time for a black tie bride to wear a bridal gown with long sleeves. There is a way to style your long sleeve bridal look to blend beautifully with your personal wedding style. We’ve chosen five wedding dress styles to show you some of our favorite ways to wear long sleeves as a winter bride. Enjoy!
01: Classic style meets romance in this a-line Casablanca Bridal gown, Wisteria. The design showcases an illusion neckline, back and sleeves, in keeping with current bridal trends, while also utilizing lace appliqués to allow the gown to remain a classic option.
02: This White by Vera Wang gown is a stunning option for a winter bride! We love the detailed beading on the column gown, and a v-neck and v-back design work beautifully as a chic, classic bridal style. These sleeves are perfectly detailed, capturing a distinctly vintage feel while the subtle illusion style adds a hint of modern style.
03: The Deidre bridal gown from Maggie Sottero is perfect for that black tie bride who adores vintage romance. A high, bateau neckline is balanced with a deep v-back in this romantic chiffon and lace design. It would make such a classic look for a winter bride!
04: For those brides who want a bridal gown fit for royalty, this Allure Bridals gown is just the thing! It’s a gorgeous lace and tulle ballgown with sleeves. The lace detailing creates an almost short sleeve look while the sheer long sleeve is adorned with lace appliqués that trail beautifully down to the wrist. This style of winter wedding gown is wonderfully timeless!
05: Not sure you can commit to wearing long sleeves for the entirety of your wedding day? A bridal jacket – like this one by Mori Lee featuring 3/4 length sleeves – or overlay is a great option for you! Lace, beadwork and embroidered details can transform your wedding gown from a strapless design into a stunning long sleeve winter gown – and back again if you would so choose – simply and easily on your wedding day!
