Through the decades, there has been one style of wedding dress that has remained timeless - the long sleeve wedding dress. Adapted through each style era, long sleeve wedding dresses have been worn by style icons like Audrey Hepburn, Marilyn Monroe, Elizabeth Taylor, Grace Kelly, Kate Middleton, Olivia Palermo and Poppy Delevingne. Depending on the dress's silhouette - and your personal style, of course! - wedding dresses with sleeves can range from chic and classic or whimsical and romantic, to fashion forward and contemporary or all-out boho. And today, we've picked 20 of our favourite long sleeve wedding dresses to inspire your own!
