Who is wearing long (or 3/4) sleeves? Either as part of the dress or as an overlay (topper)?
I would LOVE to see some inspiration and ideas. The first store I went to had ZERO dresses with sleeves, I was a little disappointed. I’m getting married in December, so I’m not worried about being too hot! 😉

This is my dress, by Needle & Thread. I purchased it online from BHLDN. The stores in my area had almost nothing with sleeves, and what little they did have were outdated styles.

This is my dress ! Bought pre owned but martina Liana is the designer. Dress 690
I would reccomend going to a boutique and trying on dresses and see what size fits. Then go on preownedweddingdresses.com and search according to budget

Morilee, Stella York and Tara Keely all feature dresses with long sleeves. I have heard brides on here say that they don’t find the long sleeved styles as flattering. You may have to try on several to see which style and length work for you. I find that 3/4 quarter sleeves tend to draw attention to your waist since they end at your waist line. If you can’t find sleeved dresses to try then maybe you could buy a topper to try on over dresses or consider a dress with a jacket(Allure and Pronovias have a few). If you are willing to pay a fee( I think it’s $150?) the salon can request the designer ship a sample for you to try. If you buy then the money goes towards the purchase, if you don’t then you are out the money. Blush by Haylet Paige has less expensive versions of the Hayley Paige Remminton and Elysia in her new collection if you are a fan of those dresses. Good luck on your search for the perfect dress.

yes I did! I had originally gotten another version of the dress in ivory from ebay, but it was way too small and I couldn’t find it anywhere in the right size. I found that the dusty rose color actually looks better with my skin tone anyway!

This is my Watters Willowby dress called Amelie.
Here’s a topper I tried from BHLDN http://www.bhldn.com/product/marnie-topper
Rebecca Schoenveld has a ton of great toppers! This is just one of them I tried on at a store in Chicago. You can also buy from her online. http://www.rebeccaschoneveld.com/

Dresses with long lace sleeves are becoming more and more common (judging by Pinterest anyway) so I’m always pleased to see a non-lace one.
This is one of the rare ones. Justin Alexander Signature:
