There are so many wedding dresses to choose from. Unfortunately, they seem to love them all, so how is a girl to choose one? We’ve put together some of our favorite dresses that easily match the most important wedding themes to help you find your own.
Traditional wedding dresses are a large umbrella. But if you love a wedding with all the usual trimmings and celebrations, one of these dresses might be the right solution for you.
This simple bodice with V-neck (top) would look good alone or with a veil in chapel length. As a Bonus, it’s good for brides of all ages. If you want to add a little more romance fairy tale to your look, think of a princess dress with sweetheart neckline (bottom, left) or a dress with lots of details of soft lace (bottom, right).
If your traditional wedding is a bit more formal, try dresses with more structure and Details. At the top, this glamorous and flared dress features a transparent shrug of the shoulders and a belt decorated with jewelry. Below, these two trumpet dresses have an explanation Detail. The one on the left has a beautiful one-shoulder neckline (skip a necklace and just wear chandelier earrings), while on the right is all about the pintucked texture. Either would be nice to a traditional ballroom wedding.
If you want your traditional with a healthy side of va-va-voom, here are some ways to incorporate more sexy Details into a traditional dress. If you wear a long, detailed sleeve, like this pearl number (bottom left), opt for a deep V-neck or a spectacular back (bottom right).
Vintage weddings are about mixing old-fashioned elegance with modern sensibility. Whether your wedding takes place in a rustic farmhouse or in a historic house, we believe you will love these beautiful options.
The unusual silhouette of this peplum lace wedding dress (top) makes it the perfect blend of vintage and Modern. Because there are so many fantastic Details, keep your accessories to a minimum so you don’t distract from the architecture of the dress.
These two strapless dresses (bottom) are very gently vintage, with Loop belt (left) and geometric stripes (right).
If you prefer a more sophisticated vintage, take a page from Claire Pettibone’s book. This dress from a current collection (below) has long sleeves made of lace, a floral belt and a great natural movement through the skirt. Also, this dress needs a little more than a refined bun to make it absolutely Shine.
People often Group vintage and Retro, but this theme certainly deserves a full-fledged category. Nostalgic with a “wink”, this look is all about flirtatious and playful fashion with style notes of the 1950s and 60s.
Of course, long dresses are proven for a Retro wedding. With trapezoidal skirts says nothing Retro like a mid-calf dress with lace with scalloped edges (top). And in aqua? All the best! Or stick to the traditional bridal white and embrace a pair of kicky kitten Heels and a birdcage veil (below).
If you don’t want to go with the length of the tea, but like the silhouette of an a-line, just find a dress that hits you at the ankles (bottom left). Belt and horizontal Details will help to extend the overall look (this dress has a floral embroidery that cascades along the skirt).
Of course, your idea of Retro could be more Marilyn than Sandra Dee. In this case you will find a great change with a pencil skirt hem. I’m dying on this gorgeous lavender beaded dress with its square neckline and its thin belt (bottom right). Even if it’s a bit formal, you can even wear this dress for a wedding in the courthouse with dinner and drinks afterwards.
More than any other theme, retro loves appliques and lace embroidery. This strapless Blush dress (below) features “3-D” flowers bursting from the rows of lace to the hem.
Modern weddings are perhaps as difficult to define as traditional weddings. Modern wedding dresses are no longer just stark white covers (though, yes, you can). These dresses are very different from each other, but they all have a small advantage, from lace corsets to the simplicity of a hard-line. All of these dresses would be great to your modern business.
This is true. This Blush dress (above) could be designed differently and easily fits a traditional or vintage Event. But between the jewelry and the daring lace corset, this look is certainly romantic-gone-Modern.
The beautiful simplicity of these two aforementioned statement reverse are more examples of a softer modernism. On the left side, the V-back is strongly inclined and is highlighted by structured cap sleeves. On the right side, a column of pearl buttons runs along the entire satin to the end of the train.
For brides who love a simple column dress, you should look no further than this texture and the pleated sheath with a notched neckline (top). This dress could go anywhere, from a destination wedding on the beach to an urban roof.
At the bottom, this beaded neckline and knotted waist perfectly underline this otherwise simple dress. Brides who don’t normally go super-girly would feel comfortable in this sophisticated dress.
Boho weddings embrace a relaxed and relaxed atmosphere, loving simple style. And these dresses certainly offer a breath of fresh air with their flowing skirts and nature-inspired Details.
The unique neckline and the ruffles around the hips make this ethereal coat quite magical (top). But you will never feel more comfortable than in this cotton wedding dress (bottom left). It has an empire waist and a loose skirt, which means you can skip the Spanx and enjoy a lot of wedding cake (and shouldn’t that be a key element in choosing a dress?). Boho brides can also go very relaxed and easy. This lace Overlay would look divine at a forest wedding, wouldn’t it?
