Autumn and winter are beautiful seasons in which to get married, but they can get bitingly chilly. Arm yourself against the cold by choosing from different sleeve types—they go with any dress silhouette, be it a ball gown, a mermaid tail, a sheath, etc.

Part sleeves come in a variety of lengths—some end at the elbow (half sleeves) like the below wedding dress from Lillian West, and some the middle of the forearm (3/4 sleeves). The cut of the sleeves depends entirely on the individual dress you choose, but often you’ll find that you can have your dress (and your sleeves) altered to suit your taste.

It’s very common nowadays to see intricate, decorative sleeves, especially on wedding dresses for autumn and winter. Lace appliqué for example is a growing favourite design that looks gorgeous in both full- and part-sleeve lengths.
