Am I the only gal out there who’s not into the strapless thing? I’m in desperate search of a flowy, day-to-night gown withsleeves to match the rustic/romantic style of my wedding. Any great finds you’ve seen outside of Sarah seven or ivy and aster?

Sleeves were the number one requirement for my dress. I refused to deal with constantly pulling up a strapless dress, so I was on a mad search for dresses with sleeves. Here’s some I found during my search.
Catherine Deane – Lia
Catherine Deane – Lita
Elizabeth Dye – Dusk
Elizabeth Dye – Honeychurch
Elizabeth Dye – Oysters & Pearls
Rowanjoy – Lucille
Claire Pettibone – Sparrow
Vintage Wedding Dress Company
Temperley London – Amoret
Thread – Mabel
J Crew – Mirabelle I actually ordered this dress but ended up returning it. It was very pretty and flowy, but the underarms looked like they were scooped out of the dress and it felt weird
Saja – LD6001 this was a serious contender for a while
Ouma – Savanna until I came across this. I was on the fence about this dress until I accidentally stumbled upon a version of this dress with sleeves and fell in love with it 🙂

Allure 8764. I might be making them more short bc I always did want strapless but love my dress!!!! Maybe make the back open and a deep v like the slip under but def keep some type of straps/sleeve on this. Never thought I’d have sleeves ever!
Like this instead of the keyhole I currently have. Perfect for my winter wedding

The Claire dress at Ruche is really pretty but it’s vintage-y:

This is a link to one design from my Dress Desinger that might work for you:
I have a dress that has long sleeves – so there are a few of us out there 🙂

i LOVE this dress, but it’s Monique Lhuillier, so it’s probably pushing 8grand with the amount of fabric 🙁

@cherryblossomlove: I LOVE the wide open back idea. Beautiful!

My dress is strapless, but I am adding tulle sleeves (like Zara Phillips’ wedding dress straps).

There was that girl, I think her name was Kate Middleton…she had sleeves 🙂
Actually, you’re kind of lucky to be shopping post-Duchess because I’ve noticed that there are more (although not a lot) dresses with sleeves of some kind since her. Here’s just what I discovered on J.Crew:
The other thing that I really wish was around when I got married is http://www.bhldn.com has a section just for bridal separates, so if you can’t find a gown, maybe look into purchasing a beautiful bridal skirt and you can find a top with sleeves to wear with it. If you’re not set on a gown with sleeves, bhldn also has a great selection of pretty boleros.
And last but not least, there is of course the custom route or Etsy.

Mine is similar to @cherryblossomlove: with the keyhole back (you look beautiful by the way). It’s Maggie Sottero’s Bernadette
If you’re looking for more flowy, but like the keyhole/sleeve look, David’s Bridal has a lighter one:
