Long Sleeve Wedding Dress Inspo for 2024 Brides — The One Trend To Rule Them All!  

Whether you’re planning a summer celebration or a cozy winter wedding, there’s no wrong season or time for a classy, dressed-up long-sleeve gown. These styles give you a simple way to instantly upgrade your look, offering a chic and timeless look to the dress of your dreams. Here’s our roundup of the best ways we’ve seen this trend executed — along with plenty of inspiration to help you see your dream come to life! 

The Collection: Long Sleeve Wedding Dress Inspo For 2024 Brides 

Here’s our top list of ways to enjoy a classy long sleeve wedding dress look for your 2024 wedding: 

1. Long Sleeve Lace Wedding Dresses

Lace is always a traditional classic — giving you that perfect flirtatious feel with the perfect level of class (and sass!) You can always dress it up with a colored lace element, or some additional bejeweled touches. No matter what you choose to do, though, you can’t go wrong with the dainty touch of beauty that your long sleeve lace wedding dress can bring to each and every photo! 

2. Long Sleeve Simple White Wedding Dresses

Looking for something more traditional? You can capture the simple, elegant beauty of the bridal look in white with stark-white, long sleeve simple white wedding dresses for your 2024 wedding look. If you’re looking to keep the same main look with a pop of pizzazz, consider going with a slight puffed sleeve, or extra highlight around your collarbones and bare neckline for an extra lift. 

3. Patterned Lace Long Sleeve Wedding Gowns 

Choosing a long sleeve wedding dress that features a patterned touch can bring you to the perfect balance of modern and timeless. You’ll still have the illusion of full coverage depending on the type of pattern you choose, with the fun and spunk that the artistic elements can bring. It’s the perfect way to stay true to your unique sense of style on your wedding day without going too obviously over-the-top! 

4. Bohemian Floral-Inspired Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses 

If you’re looking for a long sleeve wedding dress that still connects to the more modern styles and tastes, look no further than a bohemian floral-inspired choice from your local gown store. These dresses can range from large-scale floral elements to dainty arrangements, giving you a diverse range of options to choose from for your perfect wedding-day attire. You can choose to accent your look with a strategically placed fascinator or a gorgeously embroidered veil. 

5. Light, Gauzy, And Airy Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses 

If you’re looking for something seriously Pinterest-worthy, try looking for gowns with gauzy or layered long sleeves. You’ll look effortlessly light and on-trend, calling attention to your overall look and natural radiant glow. It’s a great choice to consider if you’re looking for something more simple without sacrificing the “WOW” factor that so many brides are after on their big day. 

6. Ribboned Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses 

If you’re looking for a layered or traditional style, try looking for long sleeve wedding dresses with a ribboned long sleeve for an extra dimension of tailored perfection. You can use the ribbons to tighten or lengthen the look as you see fit, and treat them as a separate accessory to your overall look. You’ll generally find these on the prairie-inspired or layered looks, pairing seamlessly with a flower crown. 

7. Historically-Inspired Long Sleeve Wedding Looks 

Sometimes, you want to give a call back to the past. Whether you’re falling in love with 19th century elegance or simply appreciate the look of a low- or midi-puffed sleeve, there’s no shortage of options to explore to help you get the look of your dreams.

"Absolutely in love with our pictures!!!"

"I love my photos so much!

It's amazing! Even though there was hardly any snow for my winter wedding, Lydia still managed to capture some gorgeous off season shots of our big day! I'm absolutely in love with our pictures and we've received so many compliments from family and friends. When I was planning, one of the most common pieces of wedding advice I got from friends was "make sure you get a good photographer" and I'm so glad I listened!!"

"It's worth it alone for the memories"

Lydia was truly amazing! We have never had our photos taken professionally, and she coached us through the whole thing. We have now received our photo gallery back and just breath taking! In tears looking at how beautiful they are! Would definitely recommend using her to capture any occasion! It’s worth it alone for the memories we have from our experience!

- Nicole & Jesse

"The BEST hands down"

Lydia is the BEST. Hands down. From doing pictures for our first pregnancy, to our engagement pictures, to our wedding; Lydia was along for the ride, and captured our love story and family perfectly. We love you so much! Thank you endlessly for everything!!!

"I knew I loved her"

After a very hectic wedding planning process, My husband and I never actually met Lydia in person before she shot our wedding. The minute she showed up I felt like I already knew her, and she made us all feel so at ease. Our wedding pictures are absolutely stunning, I still tear up when I look at them because Lydia really did such an amazing job capturing the whole day and all it’s special moments. I would 10/10 recommend Lydia to literally anybody for any occasion!

"She captured them perfectly"

Lydia captured the best moments during our shoot, we really wanted natural expressions and she captured them perfectly with our 3 boys. We love seeing their personalities shine in our photos!
