Long Sleeve Dresses for Wedding Guests
As we get into the fall wedding season, the long-sleeved dress is not just a great look; it's practically a necessity! Choosing a dress with a little arm coverage is a great style for a fall or winter wedding guest. Fortunately, boutiques and stores recognize that the long-sleeve silhouette is a fantastic look. We personally can't remember ever seeing a season where there were more long-sleeved dresses in short, midi, and maxi lengths ever offered.
The best thing about these looks, is that 3/4 sleeve and long sleeve dresses are versatile for all sorts of fall events. The long sleeves are the perfect choice for daytime through afternoon or for an outdoor fall wedding. The sleeves give a refined and modest look for church ceremonies.

Choosing the Right Dresses with Long Sleeves
Long-sleeve dresses for wedding guests come in so many lengths that it's easy to find one for every dress code. There aren't any hard and fast rules, but often you'll want to stick with longer or mid-length gowns for more formal events. Go with a shorter hem for daytime or afternoon. However, as you'll see, it's more about the style of the dress, some maxi dresses are more casual and perfect for daytime, while some short dresses have embellishments, or lace that make them completely appropriate for evening. Here are a few of our current favorites for long-sleeved fall wedding guest dresses.
Red Satin Long Sleeve Midi Dress
This dress is one we think is fantastic as we head into the winter wedding season. The rich garnet red satin fabric is a festive and modest style with long sleeves. This is great to wear to a winter wedding and for work holiday parties. From Astr the Label.
Pink Long Sleeve Dress
We think this mauve pink style is the perfect choice for late fall or early spring weddings where long sleeves are still warranted. The sparkling pink fabric makes this elevated for evening.
Green Velvet Long Sleeved Gown
Dark green velvet is a beautiful fabric to choose for winter weddings, and with the addition of sleeves and deep v neckline in this silhouette, this dress is ideal for a winter formal event like a black tie winter wedding.
Rich Chocolate Satin Long Sleeve Midi
Bronzes and browns are becoming the color of the season. These long balloon sleeves and satin fabric add elegance to the whole look. This is a perfect choice for a late fall wedding.
