Orla Kiely Par for the Dessert Course Dress from ModCloth

You know what you rarely see on wedding gowns? SLEEVES! Sure, you can always find a nice bolero or lacy jacket to pair with your strapless dress to give the illusion of sleeves, but finding a gown with the sleeves already attached isn’t always the easiest task.

We hunted down seven inexpensive sleeved dress options that are pretty sweet… with a few exceptions, these are all way under $500.

Comments on Wedding dresses to crush on: 7 sleeved gowns

  1. I’m so happy to see this! Arm modesty is important in a lot of cultures and all too often people who want to even make a gesture in that direction don’t have very good options. But these are all super cute!

  2. A note on ordering a dress from China – order a size up if you’re in America. I’ve ordered several pieces of clothing from “off-shore” websites, and they always run small.
    You can always have the dress tailored down, but tailoring it to fit larger is a bit more of a challenge.

  3. Or- if you have a strapless gown- there is a shop on Etsy that sells removable straps, cap sleeves etc……it’s called ‘Rosemarydesignsbride’
    They have a number of styles- or will custom make them to match your gown
