Wedding dresses with bustier bodices push the bust upward and shape the waist. Form-fitting and sexy, modern bustier bridal gowns have exposed boning trim and flattering cups, as seen with Made With Love's ‘Posie’, Adriana Madrid's ‘Celest’, and Louvienne's ‘Jada’. This look is perfect for a downtown wedding or hotel celebration.
When you think of lace, you probably envision the flowery, doily-like type. Modern lace wedding dresses offer an edgier take, swapping pretty buds, and petals for bold leaves and winding vines. Rue De Seine’s ‘Jericho’ and Adriana Madrid’s ‘Adhara’ are romantic, while the lace on SAINT Bridal’s ‘Cole’ is perfect for a fashion-forward bride.
You can never go wrong with a sleek, sexy bridal look. These minimal satin gowns have a slinky, liquid quality to the fabrics, which can be structured, as seen on Adriana Madrid's ‘Celest’ or draped for a softer look, as with Katherine Tash's ‘Cecilia’. The bias cut on Alexandra Grecco's ‘Harriet’ glides over the figure beautifully.
The A-line wedding dress silhouette and has been a popular choice since the dawn of weddings. Modern A-line gowns offer a fresh take on the silhouette by utilizing both structure and movement in their design, creating a powerful but playful look. Louvienne’s ‘Malea’ and Suzanne Neville’s ‘Penny’ both have structured bodices and skirts with some heft, but their sexy slits offer a flirtatious show of leg.
On the other hand, if you’re into the A-line look but are looking for a more ethereal, dreamy look, NEWHITE’s ‘Aceno’ and Louvienne’s ‘Adler’ should do the trick. Their full, flowy skirts are airy and romantic.
We tend to think tulle is never a bad idea for any wedding dress! The addition of textural tulle takes a wedding dress design to the next level. Tulle also works well with other textures, such as lace and pearl beading. The gathered tulle long sleeves on Sarah Seven’s ‘Bronte’ and long tulle bows on Made With Love’s ‘Cameron’ are swoon-worthy. The textured tulle cowl back on SAINT's ‘Owen’ is chic and commanding.
