Seeing long sleeve wedding dresses on a real person instead of a model is always a helpful indicator of if it would look good on you.

The type of wedding dress you choose is up to your personal style and your wedding vision, but it’s nice to see photos from real weddings to give you inspiration. Below are some of our favorite examples of how real brides styled their long sleeve wedding dresses.

Embracing Textures: Tulle and Lace Long Sleeve Wedding Dress
