If you’re getting married in Autumn or Winter, you might be considering a long sleeve wedding dress.
And why wouldn’t you be? Long sleeves can look incredibly chic and elegant. And they’re also practical – a solid choice for the bride who’s always cold.
That said, long sleeve dresses can also be soft, romantic and suitable for the warmer months, particuarly if you’re opting for lighter or sheer fabrics and draped or off-the-shoulder styles. There’s also a variety of sleeve lengths to choose from, whether you’re opting for three-quarter length or full, making this dress choice more versatile for the seasons than you might have realised.
