Take a cue from Grace Kelly and Kate Middleton and wear a sleeved wedding dress down the aisle. Whether you like three-quarter-length sleeves (which hit below the elbow) or long sleeves (which reach the wrists), these gowns with sleeves are timeless and elegant, not to mention fitting for any setting or season. They also provide just the right amount of coverage and have the added benefit of being a comfy choicejmeaning you can say "goodbye" to taking distracting breaks on the dance floor to tug at that strapless neckline. Though they've always been a staple in bridal, this Fall 2017 season marked a major moment for sleeves: From feminine flutter and flounce sleeves to vintage-inspired bell and bishop sleeves (or as Hayley paige adorably renamed them, "dreamcatcher sleeves"), bridal designers sent dramatic takes on the trend down the runway. The result? A seemingly endless supply of dreamy dresses featuring statement sleeves for all kinds of brides.
