We thought we had seen them all: puffy, poufy wedding gowns, bridal pant suits, short wedding frocks and mermaid-inspired beauties. But, it looks like the wedding gown is still evolving, and this time in a daring direction. The newest buzz on the spring runways for 2016 are sheer see-through bridal dresses. The New York Bridal Fashion week in 2016 saw designers like Vera Wang, Marchessa and Naeem Khan bringing this idea to life with their designs. Ranging from lace-adorned wedding gowns to huge sheer cutouts, transparent, shimmery silhouettes rocked the catwalks.
Some dresses may be described as downright shocking. Entirely exposed backs and silhouettes were seen on the ramps in may designer collections. In fact, I am certain of finding many a wedding guest frowning at this unconventional choice, should a bride make this her wedding day choice. The Daily Mail aptly calls these wedding dresses as “Barely There.”
Most of these dresses are inappropriate for a formal church wedding, as the bride would feel overly exposed in the skin clinging and revealing silhouettes. However, they wouldn’t be out of place on a beach, or at a chic destination wedding. In fact, these choices would have the younger generation at your party swooning over your wedding dress selection. If you have always been the bold one, who enjoys revealing more than the modest cleavage, this new style which has found the likes of celebrities like Beyonce and Jennier Lopez may be worth a try.
So, what do you say? Is this style for you?
Check out these two-piece dresses we have at Best for Bride, that fit the bill. They may not be just as see-through as the collections of Vera Wang, but are splendid choices that blend sensuality with style.
This stunner from the My Lady collection features a see-through bodice and a fit and flare skirt. The sexy bodice has a plunging sweetheart neckline. Vertical lines in silky lace spread all over the bodice and have sparkling embellishments to add that extra touch of finesse to the elliptical pattern. This dress is made of two-pieces, and the skirt is a simpler version of the pattern on the bodice. Perfect for a warm summer wedding, your guests will appreciate your choice.
Now, what if you don’t feel like defying tradition entirely? The Lady Abbie dress from the My Lady collection offers you the balance between a shimmery see-through dress and one that isn’t too daring to offend anyone. This two-piece dress has a strapless bodice with pleated layers that wrap onto one side of the torso. The lighter fabric reveals the midriff in a sexy twist. The skirt then cascades down in layers of pristine white ruffles, completing the masterpiece beautifully. Finest Swarowski crystals embellish the bodice of this pretty couture dress, making it a work of art.
So, what do you say? Is this style that is being called the “sexification” of the wedding gown for you?
