30 Wedding dresses with puffy sleeves

When it came to choosing my wedding dress, the one feature I was 100% sure I wanted it to have was sleeves. I began to spot a common theme across my pinterest board – every wedding dress I saved boasted puffy sleeves. Some short and off the shoulder and others big and billowing. Worried you’ll look like a Jane Austen heroine? Don’t be, all of the dresses looked anything but dated. Another reason to fall in love with a wedding dress with puffy sleeves is that occasionally the sleeves are detachable so you can switch up your look between the I do and the dance floor. Whatever bridal style you picture yourself being: easy breezy boho or traditional princess, scroll through my pick of 30 wedding dresses with puffy sleeves. I promise you, every one of them is the puff of dreams…

  • In my mind I picture myself in a simple, elegant dress like the Jesue piero one. I didn’t know wedding dresses like that actually existed – i’ve certainly never seen one in any of my 9 appointments. I thought i’d have to get a white evening dress. it’s stunning. ruby
