From Pinterest searches to Spring 2019 New York Bridal Fashion Week there is one wedding dress trend that stands out: sleeves! Brides in all seasons are embracing sleeves and we’re thrilled. Sleeves allow for a little something extra, and with an Anomalie gown, you can really customize your wedding dress to let your personality shine through details like sleeves.

What type of sleeve is right for you? Let’s peek at five sleeved wedding dress styles we’ve seen Anomalie brides in recently.

Cap sleeve wedding dress

Classic Cap Sleeves

Cap sleeves are certainly nothing new in the wedding dress world, after all, Jacqueline Kennedy brought them to icon status with her wedding dress back in the 1950s! Anomalie bride Haley shows off this classic look above. Brides have been adding cap sleeves onto off-the-rack strapless gowns for years. By crafting your gown from scratch with Anomalie, you can work with our team to seamlessly integrate a cap sleeve into your dress design without it looking like an afterthought.

Romantic Flutter Sleeves

Calling all super girly brides! Adding a flutter sleeve to your wedding dress will take your gown from basic to ultra-romantic. A ruffled sleeve allows for gorgeous draping as seen here. Try a beaded flutter sleeve to add weight and intricate detail to your gown.

Cool Off-the-shoulder Straps

Off-the-shoulder sleeves are the epitome of effortless cool. Whether you give the illusion that you’re wrapped in luxe tulle, or let your sleeves take on a more casual, shoulder-baring vibe, this is one way to highlight your neck and shoulders while still having that interest and detail that makes a sleeved gown stand out. Rose’s champagne-hued gown is accented by sheer, draped off the shoulder straps.

Modern Long Sleeves

For the bride who prefers a more modern, structured look, long-sleeved wedding dresses are a trend to embrace immediately; they’re ideal for brides in spring, fall and winter weddings. Lacy long sleeves can look sexy without revealing too much! Anomalie bride Kimberly created a boho look with sheer lace sleeves on top and an ethereal chiffon skirt on bottom!

Dramatic Bell Sleeves

A bell-sleeved wedding dress is perfect for the bride who really wants to make a sartorial statement. From glam to boho, if you’re a bride who wants to stand out, bell sleeves are definitely for you. Anomalie bride Bonnie took her bell sleeves to a glamorous level with this custom gold wedding dress with a nod to the 1970s.
