Grace Loves Lace high neck satin gown with low back and slit

A high neckline (a la Sofia Richie) like the one on the “Goldie” gown creates a long uniform line. A design like this truly makes the bride the focus, all eyes on you! Then, as you make your way down the aisle, the big reveal–a dramatic low-back. We love that Grace Loves Lace thought of everything and added flattering pleats along the waistline to accentuate your curves in all the right places.

all about asymmetry

When you forgo detail, the trick is all in the design, and that’s why minimalist girlies love asymmetry! It adds interest without taking away from the overall simplicity of a look. Take the subtle off-the-shoulder drape on the “Anu” dress that gives it that effortlessly chic feel.

crepe is queen

So many “minimalist” gowns are made from satin, which is great, but it’s not for everyone. Enter crepe–literally every woman’s best friend. It’s universally flattering, has a bit of stretch, and wears more like athleisure than formalwear but looks every bit the part of the bride. If you’re looking for a dress that looks amazing and you can bust a move in, crepe is your new BFF. For a beachy look check out the “Jones” dress with its killer fit and plunging neckline. For a modern rooftop affair, the chic off-the-shoulder “Mila” would be perfect!

So you may not like to sparkle, but every bride wants to shine, right? Check out “Oceania”! This liquid luster, high shine, innovative fabric is serving siren, and we’re obsessed. It’s fitted, without being skin-tight, and it feels like a dream! Can’t you just see the moonlight glistening on this fabric while you’re dancing the night away under the stars? Breathless…

sky-high slits

Skin is always in and we love a leg moment in a wedding gown. Be it a ballgown or a column silhouette, you really can’t go wrong. A slit is a great way to balance an asymmetrical draped design like the “Bella” gown. Plus, it’s always fun to be able to show off those wedding shoes you splurged on!
