29 best long sleeve wedding guest dresses that are seriously chic for every season

Long sleeve wedding guest dresses are a chic and sophisticated option for the nuptial attendees among you. It’s no secret that 2022 is set to be a big one for weddings, with postponements and new engagements occurring in their masses over the past two years. So, it’s likely you’ve got at least one romantic celebration on your social calendar for the spring or summer. 

With that in mind, it’s a good idea to start thinking about wedding guest dresses right about now. Especially if you’re looking for something specific, like a long sleeve dress

Whether you’ve been invited to a church wedding that specifies a conservative dress code (we’ve got more modest summer dresses here), you don’t like showing your arms or you’re after a winter wedding guest dress to keep you warm, the best long sleeve wedding guest dresses will be a chic and sophisticated option. And forget what you thought you knew: long sleeve cuts can still work on summer wedding guest dresses and at autumn weddings, too. Simply look for lightweight fabrics, floaty silhouettes or elasticated cuffs that can be pushed up and remain in place should the warm weather prove too much.

For those wanting to get their legs out but who don’t want too much flesh on show, a long sleeved mini dress is the perfect compromise. Or maybe you just love a statement sleeve, in which case, there are plenty of puff shoulder, bat wing and wrist-tie designs out there. And for black-tie weddings, sheer sleeves keep things elegant. There’s also three-quarter length sleeves!

With so many options, it can be hard to know where to start. Enter: our guide to the best long sleeve wedding guest dresses for every budget. Particular highlights? We love this off-the-shoulder floral mini dress from ASOS that keeps arms covered while still flashing a bit of shoulder. Elsewhere, those after something slinky should make a beeline fro Ghost who have some stunning long sleeved styles. Case in point: this satin knee length button front dress.

If you’re not afraid to stand out, this printed dress with cut out back detail from Mango’s party collection is top of our wish-list. It’s even made from recycled polyester. If you have a little more money to spend, this Roksanda vibrant yellow midi dress has cape-like sleeves that cascade down past your wrists for some real drama.
