Let’s give some attention to the trend that’s somehow managed to combine ’80s vibes with fairy-tale fashion and cottagecore aesthetic — and do it well. We’re talking about wedding dresses with puff sleeves! There was a time in our not-too-distant history where wedding dresses trends favored the strapless neckline. And while it’s still a perfectly good look, there’s just something about a sleeve.

Puff sleeves run the gambit from exaggerated and over-the-top to understated and Austen-esque. If you find yourself somewhere in the middle, we’ve got something for you, too. Below, we rounded up 32 of our favorite puff sleeve wedding dresses in all lengths and styles. Let’s have a look!
