Capped sleeves are offer a beautiful feature to dress that is otherwise very understated. Boho gowns often hang loose around the ankles, rather than having an elaborate train. A capped sleeve is a beautiful way to add in some detail! Antique lace, beads, and a hint of sparkle could give your dress the extra romantic touch that you are looking for.

3. Lace Ruffles

For a fall or winter wedding, a fitted long sleeved dress like the one above is a great way to go! These sleeves end just at the wrists, giving this bride a ballerina style. Boho inspired gowns are grounded in a late sixties and seventies foundation, but have since evolved to encompass a wide array of fashion elements. This dress is slightly more classic and conventional than some boho gowns, but retains a gypsy-like vintage element because of the antique lace, unconventional style, and flowing lower half. If you like this look, take a peek at the Sareh Nouri Vienna Gown. Stunning!

Flutter sleeves are rare and eye catching. This look is perfect if your wedding celebration theme is whimsical and fantasy oriented. It would go with with large, lush flowers and playful ribbons. The cut bares your shoulders in a bold way, yet is easier to wear because the straps keep the off the shoulder fabric in the right place. A flutter sleeve portion on this style of dress can be sheer and billowy, tight lace, or silky ruffles.
