In 2011 Kate Middelton married Prince William, all eyes were on Kate to see which designer and what dress she would wear. The royal wedding showcased a young sophisticated bride in a beautiful gown with sleeves designer by English designer Sarah Burton, creative director of Alexander McQueen. Since then designers have been embracing sleeves and the trend has been called “The Kate Effect.” Thanks to Kate we’ve seen a lot more options for brides who were previously out on their own if they wanted to cover their arms.

Designers have been embracing sleeves and the trend has been called “The Kate Effect.”
It used to be that if you wanted to wear sleeves on your wedding day you’d need to add them yourself by either: finding a bolero, having them made, wearing a topper, or wearing something underneath. Now you may still have to do that if you fall in love with a strapless dress, but thanks to the Kate effect you now have a more reasonable chance of finding a dress with sleeves. Today’s fashion forward bride also has the freedom to truly express her personality and taste with statement-making pieces and styles. Below are some of the trends and options if you want to cover your arms. Also, on our Pinterest board “Modest Bride” you can find many more wedding dresses with sleeves.
