For the past 200 years or so, bridal houses and designers have filled the market with countless designs and trends for the bride to choose from, but for those brides-to-be looking beyond the new and bedazzled, we have our collection of classic wedding dresses. Whether it’s the simplicity of décor or the vintage inspiration, back to classics is a great way for a bride to demonstrate her elegant style and sophistication.
The timeless A-line wedding gown has been a go-to for brides like Kate Middleton. Thanks to its form-fitting bodice and defined waist, it’s a good choice for a number of body types. Another style appropriated first by the Greeks and then Jane Austen characters is the sheath gown. The unique cut grazes over your figure concealing any imperfections, putting your beauty on a pedestal, and limits no movements whatsoever.
When it comes to necklines, the revealing yet feminine sweetheart, or the straight-across, thanks to the unique contrast, works especially well with a fitted bodice and flared skirt. Jewel and bateau necklines channel that Audrey Hepburn-esque style and the simple lines are any minimalism-loving bride’s dream.
Sleeves are a lot more than just a way to achieve coverage when it comes to a classic gown, full length sleeves can highlight the feminine frame, and if made of satin, can fill your look with an exquisite glow. Lace or other embellished sleeves give your look that royal wedding vibe and can complete your dress perfectly.
Other stylish additions include trains, whether it’s a small sweep or court train or a gorgeous monarch one, a train is a good way to visually lengthen your silhouette and make your look all the more majestic.
In an increasingly modern world, sometimes it’s good to return to classics, discover our wide selection of classic wedding dresses and find your niche below.
