7 Statement Sleeves Your Wedding Dress Needs


We’re calling it, statement sleeves are the next big must-have for any up and coming bride. Whether they’re long, three-quarter, bell-sleeved, or anything in between, a pretty sleeve can elevate a dress into something spectacular.

Take a look at all of our favourite statement sleeves and get ready to take inspiration from a whole range of fabulous designers.

1. Bell Sleeves

Bell sleeves have been an ongoing trend for a while now, and it doesn’t seem to be going anywhere anytime soon. For good reason though, because these sleeves are so effortlessly chic and always manage to look stunning. They’re the perfect choice for any Bohemian bride, but if you love these sleeves and aren’t going for the Bohemian look, then this Lillian Khallouf dress, with the blouse bodice, is a winner.

2. Puffed Sleeves

Puffed sleeves give us some major Cinderella vibes, so they’re literally perfect in our eyes. They create a gorgeous vintage look, and if it’s a fit for a princess, need we say more?

3. Sequinned Long Sleeves

Long sleeves are always a great option, even when they’re simple, plain material, but add some sequins and you’ve got a whole new look that screams glam.

4. Lace Sleeves

When it comes to your wedding dress, you can literally never go wrong with lace details. It’s a classic look that’s hung around for ages and continues to be a common recurrence. Lace is effortlessly girly and innocent, and you can really play around with the pattern and type of lace.

5. Patterned Sleeves and Floral Motifs

A little different to the lace designs, patterned sleeves are another way to really up the ante on your standard long-sleeved dresses. We are absolutely in love with this Galia Lahav gown, and the coloured sleeve details that the bride used from her favourite painting of her groom’s. How romantic!

6. Feathered Sleeve

Adding some feather detail to any dress creates that perfect Hollywood glam, and there’s no reason why you shouldn’t include it in your wedding. Take a look at this Pallas Couture dress that is just perfect for all of our #extra brides.

7. Bishop Sleeves

The bishop sleeve puffs out from the shoulder and closes back in at the wrist in a thin cuff to give a sweet, romantic look. Galia Lahav is back again with another stunner statement sleeve, and his use of tulle just makes it all that much better.
