9 bridal gown suggestions for a low-key affair
Some brides fantasize about going down the aisle in a fairytale gown, but for others, an easy maxi dress paired with a pair of sandals is a far more enticing way to say, “I do.”
Fortunately, there are no limits when it comes to wedding dresses any longer (especially in light of the pandemic and ever-changing laws), so you may forgo the tulle and lace and pick for something more laid-back if you’re planning a laid-back day.
Here are some non-traditional bridesmaid dresses that fit into a less formal dress code…
Silk Wedding Dress by Whistles Eve
Whistles debuted its first wedding line in 2017, and their classic Eve gown has since been a popular choice among brides. This contemporary silk piece will look smart on most body shapes if you’re seeking for a timeless, elegant dress that won’t break the budget.
Dora Reformation Dress
Brand ‘Cool Girl’ Reformation is recognized for their elegant, retro-boho aesthetic, and their earth-conscious Dora dress is a must-have for a garden wedding. It’s made of linen and falls somewhere between a mini and a maxi, making it spectacular enough for your wedding day yet versatile enough to be worn for many summers to come.
Babette silk slip dress by Belle & Bunty
A silk slip dress is a terrific way to cling to the white-on-white tradition without feeling hemmed in by a hefty, form-fitting garment. This gown is simple but lovely, with a single tie sash.
Faithfull The Brand Kiona Dress
For the fashion-forward bride, it doesn’t get much cooler than saying you’re wearing Faithfull The Brand on your wedding day. This light, square neck style is bang on trend and has an easy, breezy attitude that suggests you’ve just rocked up from the beach.
Feather trimmed dress by Arlington Minelli, size 16
If you want to add some glitz to your big day but don’t want to arrive at the registry office looking overdressed, you’ll still feel a million dollars in this strapless number.
