Congrats, your big day is coming! There’s a famous saying, “Less is more.” And this can be just as true about your wedding dress. Weddings are known for being all about glitz and glamour, but if you’re a self-proclaimed minimalist, you may be looking for something a little different. Fortunately for you, it’s easy to find bridal gowns of all types — even ones that fit a lower maintenance lifestyle.
Your wedding dress is supposed to “feel” like you. This means you’re not required to have a bejeweled Cinderella gown just because tradition says so. Sometimes, simple and chic is just right. There are several bridal shops in your area to choose from, or you can browse through wedding dresses online. Below are some of our favorite, minimalist bridal styles to pick from.
Simple maxi dress
Lulu’s Infinite Glory White Maxi Dress is currently going for $89. It’s sleek, and it has a darted, triangle bodice, adjustable straps and maxi skirt with a flaring mermaid hem. Additionally, this dress has a scoop back with a hidden zipper/clasp. Simple bridal styles like these pair well with statement jewelry. Not to mention, think of all the money you’ll be saving with this cheap price! (Luxury honeymoon instead?)
Romantic beach dress
Reformation’s Violet Dress ($298) is slim fitting with a full skirt and ruching detail on the bodice. The loose fitting, off-the-shoulder straps and sweetheart neckline give the dress a more romantic vibe — making it perfect for a beach wedding. This dress is great for a soft, flirty but minimalist look. Thank us later!
Cute and pregnant
Calling all pregnant brides! For $375, you can purchase the Short Lace V Neck Maternity Wedding Dress from Seraphine. This dress is vintage inspired with feminine French lace. Fully lined, the floral lace forms a flattering A-line silhouette, allowing plenty of room to move, as well as a flexible fit for every stage of pregnancy. The length gives the dress a playful feel, and the dress turns to reveal a deep V back, mimicking the V neckline in the front. Lastly, this piece comes with a detachable sash that can be secured in a stylish bow at the back, accenting your empire waist.
Designer wedding dress
Watters is a well-known bridal collection that includes various designer dress types to fit your style. One in particular — the Naya dress ($380) — is a go-to dress for any bridal occasion, including your wedding! Simple, short wedding dresses are “in” right now, and this trendy white dress is perfect for brides who want to walk down the aisle in something new and eye-catching.
Curvy and sexy wedding dress
There’s never anything wrong with showing some leg! The Curve Beatrice Bardot Drape Wrap Wedding Dress for $225 is perfect for plus size brides who are looking for a touch of sexy on their big day. Turn up the heat with a high-cut slit, off-shoulder neckline and a stylish wrap skirt.
OK, we know. This isn’t technically a dress, but let’s be honest: this jumpsuit is stunning. For those who aren’t into skirts and the like, you can change up your wedding day with the Cuffed Off-the-Shoulder Stretch Crepe Jumpsuit ($219.95) from David’s Bridal. This fit is defined by crisp lines and features a wide leg and pocketed pants.
