2015 Wedding Dresses with Sleeves
Mori Lee Voyage by Mori Lee 6795:
If you’re not completely set on sleeves
, consider ones that are barely there. This Voyage by Mori Lee combines the glamour of old-Hollywood fashion with modern style. The body is satin, creating a sultry look. The fitted silhouette showcases a feminine silhouette perfectly, highlighting your womanly figure, and the touches of lace and beading give it a bit of flair. Doesn’t it seem like this dress has cap sleeves and fabric-free arms? Look closer…If you’re searching for a knockout number (for $725!), this is the style for you! Blu by Mori Lee 5306:
This affordable designer offers a similar commitment to sleeves
, but they’re a bit more visible. It’s ultra-feminine with lots of appliqués on chiffon fabric. The result is a very soft, elegant look. The natural waistline is showcased perfectly, adding a subtly sexy element to the gown. Illusion arm coverage and a deep-v neckline provide a flattering fit on top. Turn around to show off a heart cutout, outlined in lace, and button details. The “wow” factors in this design just don’t stop! Mori Lee 2701:
This fit-and-flare is one of my favorites. Check out the unique V-neck with its scalloped edges. The bodice is decked out in detailed lace, and the waist is highlighted with delicate beading. Hourglass girls, this is your dress. And how much do we love the shape of the arms? I like how they’re fitted at the top and slowly flare out—very retro. Mori Lee 2725:
A lot of long-sleeve bridal attire can look alike, especially at the neckline. That’s why this Mori Lee style stands out. Its illusion, bateau top is something I haven’t found in other 2015 lines. If you’re set on a sweetheart, this gown still gives you that flattering cut. I also love the abundance of lace on the fit-and-flare bodice. Turn around and see the illusion back and line of buttons.
Allure Bridals Allure Romance 2808:
I adore this design—doesn’t it remind you of a very popular pin on Pinterest? Designers are paying attention to what brides are pinning, and this dress proves it. Lace and satin combine to create an elegant look that shows just the right amount of skin. The front is fairly traditional, featuring a fitted silhouette with lace details. A deep sweetheart neckline is balance by illusion sleeves. The back features an open panel and button details. The vintage elements create interesting contrast that set this gown apart from other styles. And how about that blush belt? Now that’s a finishing touch. Allure Modest M532:
Some brides appreciate coverage—it can be quite beautiful, after all. For a more modest approach to this trend, M532 is a wonderfully structured option with ¾-length coverage on the arms and a scoop neckline. Notice the beading that lines the neck? Those are the details that make Allure unstoppable. This sheath silhouette hugs the body, but not too tight. Don’t miss those chic buttons on the back! Allure 9213:
Can’t get enough lace? Consider this Allure Bridals gown. It really evokes the vintage-flair wedding dresses with sleeves have. Its sheath silhouette hugs your curves comfortably, and the sweeping train is everything a bride loves. It has a high back, but it’s constructed with lace so your skin peeks through in the most romantic way. Add in a deep V-neck, and you’ve got one very sexy design.
Willowby by Watters Heidi:
In my opinion, this embodies everything Bohemian attire should. The line of buttons on the front is something I haven’t seen, and the keyhole back is perfectly placed. If you’re a bride with eyes on a flower crown and ‘60s-inspired style, this Willowby gown is exactly what you’ve been looking for. These three designers are taking on wedding dresses with sleeves the right way. Would you wear one of these styles? Why or why not? Let us know in the comment section! You may also like...
