Not a fan of the over-the-top and once-in-a-lifetime extravagance? Or simply need a stylish dress on your way to the courthouse? Ruffles and bows are not for everyone, and sometimes, a casual wedding dress paired with bridal glow can be all the sparkle you need.
Sober and simple is the way to go, whether it’s an A-cut wedding dress or a mermaid one. Looking fabulous at your wedding is a given, but it’s also important that your gown celebrates your uniqueness and individual style.
Starting with the neckline, every line counts, so maybe ditch the straps and go for a sweetheart or straight-across neckline, or go for the simple yet alluring plunge neckline to highlight your feminine frame. Sleeves are another good way to accentuate a delicate frame, and can really pull the outfit together. When it comes to dress length, mini or midi is a great option for those brides wanting to look elegant but avoiding the trip. Another great (and revolutionary) alternative to the wedding dress is a jumpsuit, not only is it practical, it’s also straight off the bridal runway.
Fabric plays a great deal for those wanting to keep it light, fabrics like satin retain their shape and give your outfit that crisp and chic outline with just a layer or two. Softer fabrics like chiffon give your look that effortless beauty and let you hold yourself like an Ancient Greek goddess.
Casual dresses don’t have to be free of décor. There are times when beads and rhinestones can be too much, but who’s to say they can’t complete a look without over-doing it? An elegant tie around the waist not only accentuates your figure, but adds the finest of finishing touches.
