The minimalist wedding dress is one of the most happening trends on the bridal catwalks this year. Although many women still choose the traditional ball gown will plenty of bling, there are others who prefer simplicity to be their trademark on their wedding day.
The most common embellishments that come to mind, when we think of wedding dresses, are beads, frills and lace. While they are nice on a wedding dress, they are not really necessary to look or feel bridal.
Our search through the various collections at Best for Bride revealed the following masterpieces . All these dresses have the following things in common; few beads, no frills and no lace, and yet are stunning in their own rights. Let us take a look at them here.
Our first pick is this splendid T172004 wedding dress from the Jasmine Couture 2014 collection. There are two striking elements: the drape of the bodice to one side, and the signature off-the-shoulder straps. The sideways drape fashions a dropped waist that emphasizes the snug fit and flare silhouette to perfection. The few embellishments on this dress are the soft shining sparkles on the straps, and yet it is undoubtedly a masterpiece.
The next dress on our list is the Morilee 5274 from the Fall 2014 collection. The only embellishments on this Duchess Satin gown are the scintillating bands on the sweetheart neckline and the waistband. A ruched bodice adds texture to the torso, while the smooth flowing train isn’t decorated with frills. Despite the simplicity of the embellishments, it is a magnificent gown that is captivating in its sophistication and elegance.
Few dresses are as attractive as this stunning Alfred Angelo 2509 gown. The beautiful bateau neckline continues into a dramatic drape across the bodice, and ends at the waist. The different textures of the bodice and the skirt have been created so beautifully, that a slender waist is highlighted perfectly in this fit and flare gown. No poufy layers, no beading, and no lace anywhere on this dress; yet it is stylish and fashionable. The modest design makes it perfect for a traditional church wedding, and the silky finish renders it the epitome of luxury.
Last but not the least, is this simple charmeuse satin wedding gown from our own collection. The dress is an A-line gown with a sweetheart neckline, and it drapes beautifully over your sensual curves, allowing your natural grace to shine through. The simple silhouette accentuates your best features, such as a slender waist, well-toned arms, and also draws focus to your decolletage. It can be paired with a lace jacket (which is sold separately), if you would like to dress it up a little more.
