We've Got You Covered: Why You’ll Love a Bridal Gown with Sleeves

One of the things we're hearing a lot in our bridal department is, “I don’t want strapless!” It’s true that this trend has taken over the bridal industry with a vengeance over the last few years, and for good reason: strapless necklines are universally flattering. However, more and more brides are growing weary of this trend, and are looking for something new. Enter the bridal gown with sleeves!

Wedding dresses with short sleeves

Say “Hello!” to wedding dresses with sleeves.

Of course, there are several different sleeve lengths to choose from. Today we’ll be talking about wedding dresses with short sleeves and wedding dresses with cap sleeves, but stay tuned in the coming weeks for new posts on other sleeve lengths. Now, you may be a bit wary when you hear the words “sleeves” and “wedding dress” in the same sentence. Don’t worry; current designers have gone to great lengths to create styles that are fresh and current, without being too overly trendy or the dreaded ‘m’ word: matronly. (Don’t worry; it makes us shudder, too.) By far, the best thing about the new-school wedding dresses with short sleeves or wedding dresses with cap sleeves is that they effortlessly mesh classic, vintage-inspired styles with modern designs, and there’s something brides love about that old-meets-new effect.

The term “cap sleeve” can mean different things to different people, so use your best judgment when choosing your wedding dress with cap sleeves. Here are a few more of our favorite styles:
