20 Long-Sleeved Wedding Dresses

Sure, we were all inspired by Kate Middleton’s long-sleeved wedding dress, but you don’t have to be a duchess on your big day to rock the look. Long-sleeved dresses can be totally modern and fun and can look rad or royal. These chic and totally classy dresses are perfect for a boho wedding, a modern wedding and everything in between. Plus, they are great for all cool-weather nuptials — ’tis the season. Check out these 20 dresses for an unexpected wow factor.
