We are absolutely loving the trend in bridal right now toward chic, classic gowns. While there's nothing wrong with a floral bohemian explosion, some brides gravitate more toward the sleek, simplistic silhouette. If you're the type of bride who believes "less is more," then these 8 dresses should be serious contenders at your appointment! Let your consultant know if you fall in love.
First up on our list is a brand new stunner from Maggie Sottero named Selena. Featuring an ultra-trendy scoop neck line, petite straps, an open back, and flattering box pleats, this dress is the ultimate mikado fantasy princess dress. Paired with classic black tuxedos, this dress would look absolutely gorgeous in any setting, but especially one for a bride wanting something just a touch fancier!
If you're wanting a chic yet unique gown, look no further than 9603 by Allure Bridals. This silk crepe sheath gown accentuates every flattering curve, complete with a gorgeously low back and bow detail. Cloth buttons follow the train and a soft yet sexy v neck make this a perfect combination between down-to-earth and fierce.
We can't get over this gorgeous a-line gown from Essense of Australia, featuring a soft tulle skirt that adds a touch of whimsy. The high neckline accentuates collarbones while the open back keeps the entire look classy yet accessible for any season. A beaded belt would add just the perfect amount of sparkle to D2987!
Another gorgeous option from Maggie Sottero is Fernanda, an all crepe sheath gown guaranteed to make jaws drop. The soft, feminine neckline combined with the naturally effortless shape and button detailing through the train make this gown romantic, simplistic, and perfect for a bride who wants to let her body do the talking. This dress is perfect for all settings, whether you're eloping on a mountainside or in a church filled with loved ones!
For the bride wanting a sweet, soft, romantic look on her wedding day, look no further than style 6839 by Stella York. We love Stella York not only for her designs, but also for her quality - the structure of this plunging sweetheart neckline is perfect for any body type. It allows your decolletage to be the star while simultaneously showing off your tiny waist. An airy crepe fabric makes this dress perfect for any occasion, formal or not!
We know we've featured Arleigh before, but she's just So. Dang. Cool. that we can't help but put her in all our lists. She'll probably go down in our All Times Favorites list for sure. This gown is effortlessly regal, the type of luxurious soft crepe that hugs every curve. Combined with a stunningly jeweled illusion back and accented sleeves and this dress just screams royalty. If you want to feel like a true Queen, definitely put Arleigh on your list!
What if you're eloping somewhere tropical and don't want a lot of weight in your skirt? What if you're more of a flowy, elegant, gorgeous-pleats-for-days type of gal? If so, then Shannon from Morilee should be a contender for you. The beautiful chiffon skirt is MADE for gorgeous photos and the sheer back gives a hint of sexy while keeping the dress sophisticated and classic. Add a lace-detailed spaghetti strap and this dress is ready to go dancing (go twirl that skirt, girl!)
Wrapping up our fabulous list is this handkerchief skirt lace ballgown from Kenneth Winston (style BE470)! The super soft and delicate lace add romance to this fun, voluminous skirt while also keeping the overall look full of clean lines. We love the tiered skirt completed with fabric buttons down the train along with the sheer back. This is the ultimate skirt to frolick through a field in!
