Hey bees! <3
I’m starting my wedding dress search and I’d love to see your photos of long sleeve mermaid/trumpet dresses since this is the style I’m leaning towards.
My ideal dress would be lace, long sleeves (stil haven’t decided between off the shoulder or V cut back), and mermaid/trumpet style, fitted.
Here’s some pics of ideas of google lol:
the back but with a fitted bottom portion
love that style but haven’t seen in it trumpet or fitted ^
I am considering going through the replica route due to my budget ($1,500 MAX, but would be prefer to be <$1000), so I’m also very interested in replica dresses. If you ladies wouldn’t mind posting a picture of your long sleeve mermaid/trumpet dress with the price and brand (or if it is a replica, please just say replica and I will PM you for further info so the thread isn’t deleted), I would really appreciate it!
Thanks! Can’t wait to see your lovely dresses!

similar to the 3rd pic you posted, David’s Bridal Style WG3684. Now on sale for $699: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_3-4-sleeve-all-over-lace-trumpet-wedding-dress-wg3684
I’m in love with the same style of dresses (lace sleves, trumpet, open in the back, sweatheart of at least Vneck in the front though) and I’m on a budget too… so I’m eyeing this same dress but in plus size 9WG3684: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_3-4-sleeve-lace-trumpet-plus-size-wedding-dress-9wg3684
Here’s the same dress in Petite 7GW3684: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_petite-3-4-sleeve-lace-trumpet-wedding-dress-7wg3684
And Extra length 4XL3684: http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_3-4-sleeve-wedding-dress-with-all-over-lace-detail-4xlwg3684
On all the pages if you scroll down there are pics of “real brides” (not the model) in this dress. 🙂

check out this one too WG3734. http://www.davidsbridal.com/Product_jewel-off-the-shoulder-3-4-sleeve-wedding-dress-wg3734
It’s a bit more A-line than the other one but I though I’d post it still. An it’s still under 1k and comes in Plus, Petite and Extra length I believe as well.

Have you thought about getting a mermaid or fit and flare dress then adding a lace topper? This would increase the number of dresses that you could look at and probably be cheaper than buying a long sleeved dress.

love your dress! Thanks for posting
thanks for all the links! I had looked at DB’s but found that the long sleeve dresses were out of my budget and the 3/4 sleeve are nice but I just can’t get that thought of the full sleeves off my mind :/ I really hope I can find a dress like this
beautiful! Would you mind sharing the brand or where you got your dress and budget?
I had actually *just* started lookino into jackets/boleros, I’m just nervous about it being obvious that it’s two pieces bit otherwise I would love to make that work! An off the shoulder long sleeve lace bolero over a strapless lace dress would be so beautiful!

Have you looked on Esty ? I just searched ‘long sleeve wedding dresses’ and several came up similar to pictures you have posted.

so quick Q, I was browsing online and saw some dresses for sale that were <$500 but I get the impression that they are replica dresses, am I allowed to post Pictures/links of those dresses? I wouldn’t want to get the thread closed!
