    The stress of choosing who to bring with you, where to shop, and how to know what you're looking for is enough to send any bride-to-be into a tizzy. Add the request that the dress have sleeves and you'll probably want to crawl into a ball and call the whole thing off.

    Deep breaths. I'm here to help. I've rounded up some stunning gowns with long sleeves you can get right here on the web! Consider it my engagement gift to you.

    1. An elegant gown with a lace back, long sleeves, and a relaxed mermaid silhouette that will promptly bring your significant other to tears.


    Get it from BHLDN for $1,075 (available in sizes 0-18).

    2. A ball gown to make you feel as glamorous as a Disney Princess on your special day., Amazon

    Promising review: "I loved this dress! It was the exact design I was looking for and was much cheaper than buying it in a dress shop! The sleeves were bigger than the measurements I gave them, which was fine, but it needed to be altered once I received it, so be ready to have someone that can alter your dress and hopefully at a good price. Other than that I never felt more beautiful than I did in this dress, and it made my wedding more magical." —mickeycrazy1

    Get it from Amazon for $115+ (available in sizes 2-26 and in white or ivory).

    3. A lace A-line sheath dress that will assure you everything will be coming up roses on your wedding day.


    Can't you just picture walking down the aisle of your garden wedding in this rose-filled beauty?

    Promising review: "I had been eyeing this dress for my wedding and finally decided to buy it when nothing else out there could compare. It is so much prettier in person! It is perfect!!! The quality of the dress and the way it looks on you — so worth the price. It’s not heavy or bulky but the lace is not delicate and thin. It does run big and it is very long but if you go to Nordstrom, you can have it taken in and adjusted to fit you perfectly. They really make you feel special when you do come to the store, too." —JohanaD

    Get it from Nordstrom for $998 (available in sizes 00-16).

    4. A gilded three-quarter-sleeve dress, so you can feel like a bride but also dance the night away without any fabric standing in your way.


    Promising review: "I wholeheartedly recommend this piece for the budget-conscious among us looking for a 1950s-inspired, tea-length dress! This dress is so fun and a great value for its price, which leaves room for alterations without giving you sticker shock. The lace is really pretty in person. It's also a very lightweight dress compared to most wedding gowns, so it's perfect for travel if you have to fly to your wedding destination. In terms of the color, the 'champagne' is indeed on the more yellow side, but I have cool-undertoned skin and was really happy with how it looked on me. In terms of the sleeves, my upper arms are 15 inches around at their widest part, and the size 20 was a perfect fit." —emilia

    Get it from ModCloth for $175 (available in sizes 2-26 and in four colors).

    5. A modern three-quarter-sleeve gown that rivals Meghan Markle's royal version.


    This dress looks just like one the Duchess of Sussex wore the day she became Prince Harry's wife, don't you think? All you need now is a stunning tiara and a handsome prince (or princess) to complete the look!

    Get it from BHLDN for $900 (available in sizes 0-18).

    6. A beautiful bridal maxi dress with lace sleeves, so you'll look more elegant than ever as you strut down the aisle.


    Promising review: "I purchased this as my wedding dress. It fits well and the material and construction are both excellent quality for the price. I am small-chested and ordered a small and there is some extra room in the bust. I honestly don't think I'll have it altered or cups put in; I think it will be solved with a backless push-up. Happy with this purchase, and encourage others to try it!" —Clair K.

    Get it from Lulus for $86 (available in sizes XS-S with more sizes restocking shortly, and in seven colors).

    7. A stunning gown with intricate lace sleeves and a train that will make your guests' jaws drop upon your entrance.


    Promising review: "Just like you, I was so nervous about ordering my daughter's wedding dress online. After seeing a dress similar to this in a bridal shop for $1,200, we decided to take a chance. We were so surprised when we saw the dress! Looks almost identical to the picture! My suggestion would be to pay attention to the sizing chart and order the size closest to your largest measurement (hips for us). It seems to be well made with nicely sewn lace appliqués and beautiful sparkles. The train is very long and makes a nice full circle around the bride." —MrsBuzzcut

    Get it from Amazon for $159.90 (available in sizes 2-16 and in 18 styles).

    8. A beaded long-sleeve sheath dress for the fashion-forward bride who really wants to wear something unique on her big day.

    David's Bridal

    Get it from David's Bridal for $598 (available in sizes 6-16).

    9. A wedding dress with a plunging neckline and a trendy cutout in the back that will make your grandma blush — but she can't complain because IT HAS SLEEVES!


    Promising review: "Fabulous dress. Such excellent quality. The fabric is super heavy, it is fully lined with satin, and drapes beautifully. It has a loop on the inside for carrying the short train. The V is very deep so would probably suit a small-breasted bride very well. Very low-cut at the back too, so using shapewear is difficult. A beautiful dress for the right person." —Debbief27

    Get it from Nordstrom for $1,200 (available in sizes 6-18).

    10. A champagne tulle dress, because every bride should have the chance to wear a dress that looks as if it were dreamt up by an actual fairy.


    Promising review: "The pictures here really don't do the dress justice. I tried it on during a BHLDN bridal appointment and immediately had that magical warm-fuzzy THIS IS MY DRESS! feeling. The details are really spectacular, especially on the sleeves (the photo here makes it seem as though it's a 3/4-sleeve, but it's not). When I was measured, the stylist sized me at a 6, which I was surprised by — I'm usually an 8. The dress arrived a week later and it was too small; I returned and got an 8 instead and it fit perfectly. If you order, I'd ignore the measurement guide and go with your typical dress size, or the size you wear for tops, since the skirt is full and forgiving (I have a small chest and waist, and larger hips)." —Anonymous

    Get it from BHLDN for $1,250 (available in sizes 0-10).

    11. A plunging ball gown that features a leafy overlay you are sure to ~fall~ in love with.

    David's Bridal

    Get it from David's Bridal for $1,158 (available in sizes 0-14).

    12. A fluttery bohemian gown for the flower child who wants to seamlessly float down the aisle without sacrificing her own personal style.


    Promising review: "I AM IN LOVE. This dress is incredibly soft, stretchy, and comfortable. I will be able to dance and stuff my face in comfort and style! It has a beautifully detailed texture and '70s style. For reference, I wear a size 4/6 in dresses usually, and ordered a size 2. I am 5'7" and 135 lbs. This is the perfect length and I will be wearing flats." —Anonymous

    Get it from BHLDN for $800 (available in sizes 2-16).

    13. A bridal gown that only looks expensive — gazing at the detailed beading throughout you'd never know it cost under $100 (!!!).

    Promising review: "This dress was absolutely perfect. I wore it for my NYE beach wedding and it was the perfect amount of light and cozy. No need for a bra, which was wonderful. I am short (only 5’2") so my friend and I did shorten the front a bit, but the rest of the dress was very true to the measurements listed. I have gotten so many compliments on this and people are always astounded that it was less than $100 on Amazon." —Cassandra B.

    Get it from Amazon for $69+ (available in sizes 2-22).

    14. A romantic dress with cap sleeves, a swirling vine embroidery, and delicate pearl-inspired beading for a demure bride who still wants to show a touch of skin.


    Get it from ModCloth for $90.97 (available in sizes XS-2X).

    15. A high-neck gown that will make any bride look like she just stepped out of a fantasy land and into her wedding ceremony.


    Promising review: "I am absolutely in love with this dress! I had purchased it a month before my wedding and wanted something flowy, comfortable, elegant, and a little bit bohemian. I had looked EVERYWHERE for a dress and simply couldn't find one that was comfortable, in my budget, while also being strikingly beautiful. Once I put this dress on, I had that special feeling you hear about. I just couldn't stop smiling because I felt like ME in it! It had all the qualities I wanted. It seriously feels like you're wearing a nightgown, it's so comfortable, and the fact that it is under $100 is just incredible. I received SO many compliments on this dress, and everyone was dumbfounded when I told them I had simply ordered it online. That easy. You won't be disappointed—buy it!" —Gretchen A.

    Get it from Lulus for $82 (available in sizes XS-XL).

    16. A beaded beauty of a dress, perfect for a casual dinner reception or a classy affair.


    Promising review: "I love love love this dress. I already had a wedding dress, but came across the Sinclair dress a month before my wedding. So I took a chance and ordered it. I arrived a couple weeks earlier than the expected shipping date, which helped A LOT. I tried it on and it fit me absolutely perfectly. I ended up wearing this dress to my wedding, and what a great decision that was. I felt great in it, and I got a lot of compliments." —Anonymous

    Get it from BHLDN for $350 (available in sizes 0-18).

    17. A dazzling cold-shoulder wedding gown that will keep the couple so distracted they won't even think about getting cold feet.


    Promising review: "Gorgeous! This dress is beautiful. The fit is awesome. I ordered a size 4, which is my usual size, and was nervous it may be tight since I realized it says that it 'runs small' after I purchased it. When it arrived, it fit perfectly. I’m 5’8" and found that the length was perfect to wear with a four and a half-inch heel." —Mils03

    Get it from Nordstrom for $798 (available in sizes 00-16).

    18. A short lace wedding dress, for the casual bride who wants to show a little leg. Ooh la la!

    Get it from David's Bridal for $498 (available in sizes 2-16).

    19. An embroidered gown that would make for a flawless beach wedding look. Yes, you can even wear sleeves in the sand!


    Promising review: "This dress is absolutely beautiful! I was hesitant to order online without trying it on, but its lovely. The beading is just enough and it sparkles in the light sometimes, and I can tell the material is very high quality. Definitely enough that I can see this dress used as a wedding dress or engagement party dress like I'm using it for. As stated this dress runs small so order a size up from your normal! Also I think the quality of this dress very good for the price." —Anonymous

    get it from BHLDN for $275 (available in sizes 0-16).

    20. A stunning dress with illusion sleeves to make you look and feel like royalty as you walk down the aisle.

    David's Bridal

    Get it from David's Bridal for $1,258 (available in sizes 16W-26W).

    21. A separate top and skirt that will let you completely customize your wedding day ~look~ to match the one you've been cooking up in your brain forever.


    Before I settled on my wedding dress, I was highly considering making my own look by combining a separate top and skirt from BHLDN. If you're not finding what you want in a single gown, try your own combos! This lace top combined with a satin bottom is e v e r y t h i n g.

    Get the top for $100 (available in sizes XS-XL) and the skirt for $700 (available in sizes 0-14) from BHLDN.

    22. An affordable jeweled ball gown, because every winter bride should be able to be comfortable, warm, and dazzling on her special day.,

    Promising review: "Beautiful and very good quality lace wedding dress. I was very hesitant to order a wedding dress online, but i had very limited budget. So, I ordered it on Amazon. I fell in love with the dress as soon as I tried it on. Highly recommend this beautiful wedding dress to beautiful brides-to-be." —LittleAngel252

    Get it from Amazon for $100+ (available in sizes 2-26 and in white or ivory).

    23. And a chic V-neck gown that will make you look like a goddess who just descended from an actual freakin' cloud.


    Seriously, this gown is what modern wedding dreams are made of.
