However our most powerful ally in the quest for wedding dresses with sleeves has been Princess Kate Middleton. Her wedding in 2011 to Prince William gave the green light to designers that sleeves can be young, sophisticated and beautiful. As put by the designer Lela Rose in a piece for the New York Times, “The royal wedding sort of put a stamp of approval on sleeves for brides who have thought previously they can look dated.” Thankfully we've been spotting more and more stunning wedding dresses with sleeves since then.
While it used to be that brides wanting sleeves had to have custom gowns made or use bolero's, jackets and shawls that is no longer the case. So where should you go to find a wedding dress with sleeves? Our Modest Bride board on Pinterest is a great place to start and get an overview of what designers have available. If you can't afford a designer label and want to shop now, we're excited to announce that we're carrying Illume Gowns on Mode-sty!
