Simply stunning - discover the perfect plain wedding dress
Simple but effective is the key to choosing a striking plain wedding dress. Think clean elegant lines, stylishly minimal detailing and perhaps just a touch of understated lace.
The beauty of a plain wedding dress is that you can also dress it up or down as much as you like. Keep it contemporary with just an elegant tiara and a matching pair of drop earrings or up the drama with a faux-fur bolero or lace jacket, the choice is yours! Here are four deceptively simple designs that we think fit the bill perfectly…
Shimmering Mikado does all the work here. This clean-cut mermaid style has been designed to elongate the body, with elegant seams that draw the eye down the length of the dress.
There are also feature seams across the side of the bodice and a high sweetheart neckline for plenty of support and coverage.
Lastly, an elegant row of covered buttons at the back runs all the way down to the end of the glossy train.
For understated elegance, try adding a low-key touch of sparkle at the waistline and a pair of statement earrings.
Alternatively, if you’d like to create two looks in one, then Tate is the perfect match for our Raya overskirt. Made from soft gathered tulle, it features delicate lace appliqués covered in sparkling crystals and diamantés. It's also fastened with a glittering crystal beaded belt. Wear it for the daytime and then remove it for the evening to reveal your glamorous party look!
Dayse has a delightfully understated boho feel and combines pretty lace with a clean and simple chiffon skirt.
The lightweight and easy-to-wear skirt perfectly offsets the more detailed bodice, with its fresh new floral lace and three-quarter-length sleeves.
At the back, there’s a low V-neckline and a touch more illusion lace. This is a dress that’s quietly elegant, designed to let your natural beauty shine through.
Relaxed styling is the key here, think tumbling, loosely pinned hair, decorated with perhaps a few hair pins or a twisting floral hair vine. If you're marrying overseas this is the ideal style for a beautiful barefoot ceremony on the beach.
A contemporary classic
Lastly, we have Miriam, a stunning mix of shimmering Mikado and modern detailing. The contemporary bodice, with an illusion neckline and back, has been paired with a stylishly simple box-pleated ballgown skirt.
It also features on-trend, tape-style lace across the waist and at the seams, and striking cross-hatched, illusion tulle at the back.
The detailing here is modern and understated. There's just the right amount of floral lace and chic tulle to complement the sleek Mikado.
Covered buttons, surrounded by a little more lace, complete the look, alongside layers of rippling Mikado. These fan out into the perfect shimmering train, no embellishment needed!
So, as you can see, plain doesn't have to mean simple. These pared-back dresses are striking in their simplicity, and the perfect choice if you're looking for something unfussy, uncomplicated but still absolutely unforgettable!
