Elaborate, embellished gowns and shimmery shiny ones were all seen on the bridal catwalks for Spring 2016. However, it was the minimalist wedding dress style that stood out, and really impressed us. Many design houses focused on simple but refined details in minimalist wedding dresses, offering a welcome choice to the brides who don’t want to be drowned in layers of fabric. Soft, minimalist gowns were the forte of Houghton, Randi Rham and Amsale design houses and many brides have been swooning over the delicate beauties they created for brides this year.
We love minimalist wedding dresses for many reasons, some of which include
- The straight cuts and simple sheath silhouettes allow a bride to flaunt her naturally sexy figure
- Sometimes, it is the subtle details and simple embellishments that are more attractive than elaborate and exquisite designs
- With the focus on few key features, the dress is graceful and the few details are emphasized.
- It is perfect for the confident modern woman, for whom simplicity means style
- The natural shape is an update to the traditional wedding dress silhouettes
We have splendid minimalist gowns in our bridal collection at Best for Bride. So, why don’t we head over there now, and take a look at some of our favorite picks from the lot.
Mori Lee 5307 Organza gown
This gown has just the right amount of details. With a simple fit and flare silhouette that snugly drapes over your sensual curves, the embellishments are kept to a minimum and aren’t overwhelming. A soft sweetheart bodice allows you to show off your toned shoulders and collar bones, while light lace motifs add a dainty touch to the dress. The back is simple with a low cut neckline ending in a strand of satin buttons that extend to the derriere. At the natural waist is a small strand of crystal embellishments that add subtle sophistication to the pretty dress.

Glamorous, yet minimalist, this gown glides over your natural curves, carving a fresh look.

The low cut neckline in the back is encrusted with crystal beading to create an enchanting effect.
