So I’ve decided I definitley want a long sleeved dress. However, the choice seems quite limited compared to the usual corset style strapless numbers. I’m wondering if any Bees could recommend any lovely long sleeved dresses for me? My budget is max £2,000 but would probably prefer a little cheaper than that if at all poss.
Thank you! 🙂

You could look into getting or making a long-sleeved overdress/topper to wear with a sleeveless gown. I did something along those lines by combining pieces from two different gowns:

Sleeves are a pain – I wanted a cap sleeve and even that was an head ache! But what about Augusta Jones, Elle?
Or this one if you want something simple? And I think this Rose Clara is lovely if you’re a Grace Kelly fan – just a pity it’s expensive:

Justin Alexander does a lovely one:
Though I don’t know how he translates into Uk prices. I believe his dresses are around the $2-3k mark USD, so that should be equivalent to your budget, buI I’ve heard that UK prices can be as ridiculous as Australian ones, which is no mean feat.

You could get something like this, that snaps in underneath a strapless dress:

I got my sleeves custom made on a Casablanca dress. Casablanca does custom changes to basically any dress. It is an extra charge, but you can find very inexpensive or on sale Casablanca dresses. My original dress was about $900 on sale, and then about $1500 with all the custom changes. I did a lot though – I changed the entire silhouette and skirt and then added a fully lined neckline with sleeves. Just sleeves is probably a lot cheaper.

Try looking at Ellis Bridals. They have a good number of long sleeved wedding gowns, and their prices are pretty affordable, starting at £750.
