Find the perfect cap sleeve wedding dress


Cap or short-sleeve wedding dresses are always a key part of our collections here at AH as we love the delicate detail and light coverage they create. A small lace or silk cap sleeve can completely transform how our brides feel in a dress. Our stylists are here to help find the right sleeve length and shape for you, ensuring you feel confident and comfortable on your wedding day!

The perfect demure middle ground between strapless and long-sleeved


To design a cap sleeve wedding dress that is flattering on the arms, we blend a mix of delicate silk and French lace. They offer coverage, structure and support while conveying an undeniable elegance and radiance. Perfect for a modest yet stunning bridal look.


Designs to stand the test of time


From our Finsbury Collection, our ‘Fleur’ wedding dress is made from premium natural silk, an elegant bridal design with solid silk cap sleeves and v-neckline. These features create a clean modern silhouette that is both flattering and modest. 

For brides looking for a little more detailing, our cap sleeve wedding dress ‘Cleo’ creates interest and depth with its low-back and beaded bridal top, offset by the flowing a-line silk bridal skirt. 

If you are looking for a lace wedding dress with cap sleeves our ‘Aurelia’ dress from our Reflection Collection is the perfect choice. With a geometric contemporary lace bodice and sheer lace cap sleeves ‘Aurelia’ is an elegant and timeless option for the modern bride. 

To create a cap sleeve wedding dress that is unique to you, Andrea Hawkes can also design a beautiful bespoke bridal dress that meets your exact preferences and design details. 

“Cap Sleeves can be a subtle classic shape to cover your shoulders for your ceremony, whilst leaving your arms uncovered. It can be a beautiful design feature to use a French lace or sequin silk for just the cap sleeve on a simplistic silk dress.”Andrea Hawkes
