one of my close friends got married in a gown with long lace sleeves. It was really pretty and timeless and honestly it is one of the few dresses with the sleeves I have really liked. Sorry for the poor picture quality!

Have you considered looking at vintage patterns and having a seamstress make a dress for you? I thought of having my grandmother’s wedding dress altered to fit me (she was very tall and very thin), but ultimately decided against it.

I had a gown with satin 3/4 sleeves made to look like my grandmother’s wedding gown (as hers was damaged). Just a little advice, satin sleeves do not stretch and therefore it was hard to lift my arms above my shoulders… I changed into a reception gown with draped sleeves so that I would be more comfortable. Good luck!

Pronovias Iman has lace sleeves:

Le Spose Di Gio had a whole collection of these (which are all pretty similar with subtle differences – I like 14 best):

I don’t know how current they are, or if they’re still being produced (I saw 14 in a recent magazine, so they must be), but you can find out or maybe get a used one if you like them. 

I really feel for you, because I know how ridiculously hard it’s been just to find a dress with straps.  Finding one with sleeves will be even tougher.  🙁  I promise if I see any nice ones, I’ll let you know.  I’ve spent the last 20 minutes or so going through my bridal magazines because I KNOW I saw one with long satin sleeves.  I thought it was a Pronovias, but I haven’t gone through their website yet because I might be remembering wrong.  If I find the picture back, I’ll let you know which dress it is. 

Also, if you found a dress with the right kind of straps, a good seamstress could probably build in satin sleeves for you.

Take a look at Temple-ready dresses for LDS brides which are required to have sleeves.

@Ember78:

I second that.

Latter Day Bride and something like… Eternity Bride? online have a nice selection of dresses with sleeves.

I bought a dress off Etsy with sleeves.

Here is my dress…. except that I had ALL the pick ups pulled out, so the dress looks completely different now (but dont have pics of it).
