Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses for a Winter Wedding

Perfete Blogger / Saturday February 5, 2022

Is a winter wedding calling your name? The beauty of freshly fallen snow, dark color palettes and the cozy feeling of the season are a few factors that draw couples to celebrate their wedding during the winter months. A winter wedding also means long sleeve bridal fashion and cold weather-inspired accessories like fur shawls and muffs. Stay warm and enjoy the snowy season with these long sleeve wedding dresses perfect for a winter wedding.


Trumpet Sleeves

An ethereal, boho style isn’t just for barefoot summer weddings. Wedding gowns with trumpet sleeves provide the boho look with a billowing sleeve while also giving you as much (or as little) dress coverage as you want for your big day.

Lace Sleeves

Love the look of a long sleeve wedding dress but worried about being during your wedding. A breathable lace pattern can make a design statement as subtle or dramatic as you’d like for your big day while still providing air flow for when you turn up the heat on the dance floor.

Asymmetrical Draped Sleeves

Not all sleeves are created equal. In fact, who ever said you have to have two sleeves to wear a long sleeve wedding dress? Toss symmetry to the wind and opt for an asymmetrical wedding dress. Perhaps this looks like two different sleeve styles or maybe just one long sleeve. There are no rules to how a dress is supposed to look.

Cold Shoulder

Show off your shoulders or collar bone while also having a long sleeve wedding look you will love. A cold shoulder sleeve starts on the upper arm, typically just below the shoulder and can offer a straight or plunging neckline. This is a popular style you don’t want to give the cold shoulder.

Detachable Sleeves

Love the look of a long sleeve gown but don’t want to commit to the look for your whole wedding? A wedding dress with detachable sleeves offer two looks in one, giving you all the beauty of a sleeved look without the full day commitment. Stay warm with full coverage during your ceremony then convert to a sleeveless style, perfect for turning up the heat on the dance floor.

Full Coverage

Long sleeve dresses are great for winter weddings to keep warm, especially if you plan to take outside photos. If you are going for warmth, want a modest style, or both, long sleeves pair perfectly with a full coverage neckline and back.

Plunging Neckline

Having a long sleeve wedding dress does not mean your entire wedding look has to offer full coverage. Pair a plunging neckline with a long sleeve style for your desired coverage.
