Long sleeved wedding dresses are making a comeback, but the style has dramatically changed for their latest incarnation. Full-material sleeves have been replaced by illusion mesh, lace and intricate beading to create a truly feminine look. When coupled with a plunging cut on the back, the latest long sleeved dresses are truly awe-inspiring.
