Straps or strapless? It’s a big decision! Strapless can obviously look stunning but it’s also a more revealing style. So, if you’re firmly in Team Wedding Dress Straps, we have plenty to offer.
Straps or strapless? It’s a big decision! Strapless can obviously look stunning but it’s also a more revealing style. So, if you’re firmly in Team Wedding Dress Straps, we have plenty to offer. Straps are ideal for providing a little more coverage, whether that’s from delicately embellished spaghetti styles or wider illusion lace numbers. They also add interest and detail around the décolletage, drawing eyes upwards, and provide extra support for bigger busts.
Our bridal experts have chosen three brand new designs below to show you the different styles of wedding dress straps available, from Syrah’s slim spaghetti versions to Karolina’s super romantic lace style. We hope you feel inspired!
Emery is a deceptively simple A-line style, available in either oyster or ivory satin. This look is all about the clean-cut silhouette, which accentuates the waist and showcases the shimmering fabric that provides all the wow factor you need.
The elegant satin has ben draped cleverly across the bodice to sculpt and highlight natural curves. The simple straps also provide plenty of coverage and support, while looking attractively delicate, and the V neckline draws attention to your décolletage.
A sculpting bodice
Take a closer look at the beautiful pleats too, which are super flattering and totally luxurious!
The pared-down style at the back helps to highlight the glorious satin, while the row of sophisticated covered buttons is an elegant focal point.
A stately elegance
This understated design looks amazing just as it is but, if you do want to add a touch of sparkle, try pairing it with our beautiful Estella belt. Our Regency tiara also has the stately elegance that this dress demands.
Shimmer from head to toe
Take in the full length of the dress and you’ll see how beautifully the shimmering satin falls to the floor before ending in a stylishly simple train. For a little more volume we recommend wearing this skirt with our 163 underskirt too. And, if this dress has made you fall in love with satin, take a look at Tara and Felicia as well. Alternatively, for a similar style without wedding dress straps, take a look at Clare instead.
Karolina showcases a totally different style of wedding dress straps. These lacy lovelies are the perfect match for this romantic Platinum Edition style, with its classic sweetheart bodice and perfect princess skirt.
Be my sweetheart
The sweetheart bodice features exquisite lace and the attractive appliqué straps are both pretty and supportive. Alternatively, you can also remove them to create a strapless style, if you prefer!
Beautifully beaded embroidery covers the bodice and trickles down on to the skirt, complementing the fully appliquéd lace hem.
The perfect fit
At the back there’s luxurious satin lacing to make sure the bodice fits like an absolute dream. The lace straps also frame the shoulder blades perfectly.
Putting on the glitz
This dress is absolutely stunning but a modern-day princess deserves a little extra glitz too! We love this dress with our sparkling Nova belt and our fairytale Perla tiara. Our satin-edged Loulou veil is a classic princess style, just finish it off with our regal Odetta veil topper and you’re ready to go.
A breathtaking skirt
And last, but certainly not least, there’s the fabulous train, with its stunning lace hem. You can also turn the volume up to the max by doubling up on our 153 and 163 underskirts. Finally, if you’re not sure about walking around with a full train all day, ask your seamstress to add a bustle. This will allow you to hook up the back of your dress when you’re ready to dance the night away!
Delicate sparkling straps
Syrah is a beautiful sheath style, available in both ivory and champagne, that’s covered from head to toe in stunning lace. The thin spaghetti straps really are one of the highlights here and show how the right straps can add beautiful detail as well as stylish support.
The sweetheart bodice is sexy yet modest, and the on-trend plunging neckline features carefully placed illusion panels. Fashionable brides will love the half-width boning too, which is totally on-trend this season.
Sequins, pearls and beads
Look closely and you’ll see the statement lace appliqués, which have been embellished with clear sequins, tiny pearls and iridescent beading that continues prettily down the skirt.
The attractively dipped back features illusion lace finished with a neat row of covered buttons. The luxurious lace also continues prettily across the hips, highlighting your natural curves.
This sexy fitted design looks fabulous with a little more sparkle. Our glamorous Leonie belt is the perfect accompaniment, along with our elegant, full-length Willa veil, secured with our Lorelei veil topper.
Layers of stunning lace
The skirt also features a stunning lace hem, as well as a Chantilly lace under layer, for a seriously sumptuous feel. There’s no need to wear an underskirt with this fabulous fitted style either, so you can save your pennies for glamorous accessories! Lastly, if you love this look, we think you might like Orlando and Wyatt too.
