The strapless dress is the Queen Bee in the wedding dress clique. As gorgeous as she is, she often requires some attention. This is usually in the form of a bold necklace or cover up to give some added detail.  That’s why we’re so obsessed with sleeved dresses, as they do all of the hard work for you! They bring a unique touch whilst being feminine and extremely flattering. With the various sleeve options out there, there’s definitely one (or more) for you to fall for. Well, it certainly looks like the strapless dress has a rival on her hands!

Elbow-Length Sleeves

This length strikes the balance between casual and elegant. The sleeves look beyond fabulous with embellished or detailed dresses. Slanted or embroidered versions give a little something extra and still give ample space for a bracelet or two.

Long Sleeves

A long sleeve looks wonderful with short dresses. They are crying out to be worn at a City Hall wedding. Delicate lace sleeves are another option and ideal for vintage themed nuptials. They provide great coverage but in a soft and romantic way.
