Wedding Gown Design Styles With Long Sleeves

I have always loved the elegance of Victorian-era wedding gowns and dresses. The wedding gowns then were usually designed to be modest in look, so that the bride exuded a demure beauty and grace that were becoming of brides in that time period. Overt sexy looks were not in fashion, and considered to be cheap! As an example take a look the what Queen Elizabeth of Englang wore at her wedding - a wedding gown that can still be considered beautiful in this day and age.

However, modern brides today want to look great (that is, overtly sexy) - and hence the off- shoulder gowns, the corset waisted styles and the fitted fishtail skirt designs are all in rage in many bridal gown shops. That leaves little options for the brides seeking a more modest, yet beautiful wedding gown.

I took some time to search the Internet for beautiful wedding gowns that are modest (long-sleeved or full skirts for instance) yet modernized enough to look elegant and not frumpy. I call them my Victorian-inspired and Medieval-inspired wedding gowns! :)

I hope you are inspired by these wedding gown picks.

High Collared Wedding Gown

This one has a high collar, with inspired with a jacket design that isn't really a jacket. The sleeves are three quartered length with a full A-line skirt. Simple, smart looking wedding gown.

Medieval-Inspired Wedding Gown

I really like this one because it is unique. It is very simple, yet elegant. And it also comes with a beautiful cover-up hooded golden gown! Perfect for a theme wedding based on medieval times.

Two Piece Wedding Gown

I like the idea of having a two piece wedding gown. A simple white A-line dress inside, and an elaborate heavy lace top piece with a long train. I would like to make the sleeves three quartered though, would make it look better, in my view.

Flowing Long Sleeved Wedding Gown

This one is perfect for a bohemian themed wedding ceremony. It gives a feeling of a brode that is so light, flowing and happy. A young bride would certainly look great in this piece. The sleeves at the elbow area are cut in a way so that it almost flows into the long gown itself. Absolutely beautiful dress.

Full skirted Wedding Gown

Long sleeved laced wedding gown with a colored band around the torso. The skirt is full and reminiscent of the Victorian-era wedding gowns. The embroidered edgework around the hemline of the skirt also makes this piece beautiful.

Lea Salonga's wedding dress looks exactly the same as that. It was designed by Monique Lhuiller...
