Long Sleeve Bridesmaids Dresses

Updated on June 15, 2013

Bridesmaids Dresses for Fall and Winter Weddings

Choosing dresses for the women in your wedding party is almost as difficult as finding a wedding dress. It is especially difficult to find long sleeve bridesmaids dresses.

I know, I was married in the middle of winter. I was lucky only to have a maid of honor so I didnât have to worry about finding dresses that would fit different styles and body types. I only had to worry about my best friend and me. I wanted her to be comfortable, look beautiful and not freeze to death as we hustled from the church to the reception hall. I looked everywhere for a long elegant classic dress with long sleeves. I couldnât believe that the bridal shops only had strapless and spaghetti strap gowns on the racks. It was December! We eventually settled on a two piece gown with a halter top and long skirt.

It wasnât exactly what I was looking for but it was the perfect color and we found a beautiful sheer bolero to wrap around her shoulders when we were outside. She ended up losing it half way through the night because she was having such a good time and perfectly warm on the dance floor.

Here you will find a variety of long sleeve bridesmaids dresses, three quarter sleeve formal dresses as well as a few jackets and boleros.

Choices

It may be a little harder to find long sleeve gowns but you do have a variety of styles to choose from. Some of the different sleeves are lace, sheer, and ¾ length.

You should take a few things into consideration when you are selecting the dress. It should look great on all of your bridesmaids and you want to be thoughtful of their opinions. It is your day but celebrating with family and friends is what make the occasion so special. You don't want your maid of honor to think back and only remember how uncomfortable she was that day.

Long sleeve dresses are not just for fall or winter weddings. You can wear them in spring and summer. They are a great option for more conservative bridal parties or for a bride that wants her wedding to really stand out from any other.

There are many gowns made of light weight, breathable material in beautiful pastel colors that will work great for outdoor weddings and warmer weather.

Why a Winter Wedding

I really enjoyed getting married in the middle of winter. We were living in the south at the time so it wasn't too cold. My husband and I were young and in love and we didn't want to wait until spring.

I didn't have to worry about my makeup running because of the sweat dripping down my forehead or mosquitoes swarming around our heads while we were trying to take our wedding photos. The air was crisp and cool. It was one of the most amazing days of my life.

We were also able to take advantage of a honeymoon suite on a beach in Florida at a fraction of the price because it was considered the off season. The water was too cold to go swimming but we didn't care.Our room was beautiful and we were about to celebrate the holidays for the first time as husband and wife.
