Trends we love: Wedding Dresses for the minimalist bride

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.

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.

Dress to impress: How to dress for a wedding

Weddings are occasions to shine and look fantastic at. Although it is the bride who will steal the show in her fantastic bridal attire, it doesn’t mean you have to tone down your glamour quotient. As a wedding guest, make sure you dress your best, and get noticed. Here are some fashion tips to help you look fantastic at the next wedding you attend.

Bring on the accessories

Step out in style in a fantastic pair of heels, and give everyone the opportunity to look at you from Toe-to-top, for a change! Accessories are a fantastic way to transform a regular dress into something spectacular, and the best part is that it doesn’t have to break the bank. Experiment with statement jewelry, or invest in a killer clutch. Go with the latest trends and buy bold and bright accessories that add instant glamour to your look.

Stay Away from White and Black

When you have a whole color spectrum to choose from, why should you opt for the one color that screams “Bride”? White is the bride’s color, and don’t attempt to steal her thunder by appearing in white. As for black, we have seen enough of short black dresses at every occasion. You can be certain that there’ll be at least three other women in black, so don’t join the queue. The only time you will be excused for wearing black is if you have a super-stylish formal black gown that is so unique, you won’t face competition from anyone.

Bright or light, dress for the weather

Choose colors that match the vibe of the season. Also, don’t forget that your dress should be appropriate for the weather at the time. Choose bright, bold prints or cheerful pastel colors for summer and spring. If it is a winter or fall wedding, embrace the beauty of the cooler climate and go for classic, dark tones. This is the chance to bring out your precious silk scarf or stylish stole, and enjoy the attention it gathers.

Make an effort

via Best for Bride

A wedding is a special occasion, and however casual the style is don’t dress in anything you can be seen in on the street. You do not need a new outfit, but keep it formal or semi-formal, dress up in style, wear makeup and try to look good. Also remember that there will be families attending the event, so avoid dresses that are too revealing, too tight or low cut, that it can make you uncomfortable wearing in front of company.

Bring out your style with modern twists on classic dresses

Dressing up for weddings doesn’t have to be boring and always classic. This is your chance to let your personality shine through, with fantastic twists and elements that are your own idea. If your dress looks too plain, add an interesting scarf or pair it with a stylish jacket and you are set to go.
