Long Sleeve Wedding Dresses

Create a moment of magic…with d’Italia.


Long-sleeve wedding dresses are a timeless symbol of sophistication and grace, beloved by brides seeking an aura of regal elegance on their special day. This majestic style holds a special place in the hearts of our brides, resonating with those who desire a classic yet enchanting look. This regal style is a favourite among d’Italia brides.

From the initial design sketches to the final fitting, d’Italia is dedicated to bringing your dream gown to life so you feel truly radiant on your wedding day.

A-line, ball gown, and mermaid/trumpet are all great silhouette choices for long sleeve wedding dresses. If you want a more classic look, go for an A-line dress with long sleeves. If you’re looking for something a little more dramatic, try a ball gown or mermaid/trumpet silhouette with long sleeves. A classic and timeless look, an elegant wedding dress with long sleeves is perfect for a formal or black tie wedding. For a modern twist, try a sheer sleeve or an illusion sleeve.
The best fabric for long sleeve wedding dresses depends on the season and the style of the dress. If you want a more traditional look, go for a dress made of satin, taffeta, or lace. If you’re looking for something a little more modern, try a dress made of chiffon, organza, or tulle. In most cases, for a summer wedding, a lightweight fabric like chiffon or organza is ideal. For a winter wedding, a wedding gown made from heavier fabric like satin or taffeta will keep you warm.
There are a few different necklines to choose from when it comes to long sleeve wedding dresses. If you want a more traditional look, go for a dress with a scoop neckline, V-neckline, or boat neckline. If you’re looking for something a little more modern, try a dress with a plunging neckline or an off-the-shoulder neckline.
For a more traditional look, go for a dress with a bell sleeve, cap sleeve, or three-quarter sleeve. If you want something more fashion forward, try a dress with a long sleeve or an illusion sleeve.
Absolutely. We can design wedding dresses with detachable sleeves, so you can switch up your look from ceremony to reception. Balloon sleeves, for example, can be worn off the shoulder for a romantic look during your ceremony, and then pulled down over your arms for a more modest look at your reception.
