Stunning sheath wedding dresses
Beautiful sheath wedding dresses have a narrow shape that sweeps straight down from the neckline to the hem and are often made from light and flowing fabrics. Sometimes called column dresses, this silhouette elongates the body and gently hugs curves to create a striking modern look that’s ideal for brides who don’t want to be overwhelmed by too much fabric.
Sheath wedding dresses are a great choice for a destination wedding because they’re so comfortable and lightweight, which is ideal for a warm Caribbean beach or a romantic European city. They also make the perfect second dress. For example, why not wow your guests with a classic princess look or ball gown in the day, then change into a sexy sheath for the evening do?
So, if you think a sophisticated sheath might be the dress for you, you’ll love our Bridal Experts' favourites below…
Strike a pose
Let’s start with Marko, a dress that’s designed to make a statement. This sexy sheath features unique botanical lace, an incredible illusion back and a magnificent, ruffled lace train. It's a design that will ensure all eyes are on you all day long!
The bodice has flattering cap sleeves and a soft plunging neckline, all embellished with gorgeous modern botanical lace, inspired by tropical florals. Turn around and you’ll reveal the wow-factor illusion back. It showcases the floral lace to full effect while providing plenty of discreet support. Try it with matching accessories, like our floral Lorelei comb and crystal Solstice belt, which work beautifully with the pretty lace.
However, the stunning skirt is what your guests will be talking about long after the wedding. Especially with a little added volume from our clever Wunderskirt! Falling in elegant ripples to the floor, the sparkly sequin underlayer and climbing floral lace combine to create a look that’s completely breathtaking.
Sparkle like a star
This show-stopping, contemporary sheath is covered from top to toe in luxurious geometric embroidery, designed exclusively for WED2B. Every detail is complemented by thousands of pearlescent beads, adding a touch of luxury and an expensive ‘heavy’ feel.
Dion is lined in a liquid-like jersey, so it feels unrestrictive and soft against the skin. Plus, clever design details, such as the perfect supportive straps and a neckline high enough to conceal a bra strap, make it super easy to wear. Luxurious, stunning and practical, what more could you want?
The more you look at Dion, the more there is to see. Even the pretty scalloped hem has endless tiny details, designed to catch the eye. Try it with our Estella belt to define the waist and our pretty Evie hairpiece to finish the look.
If you want something truly unique you’ve come to the right place! This sleek, slim-fitting sheath is beautifully layered with intricate Chantilly lace, underneath layers of tulle and ornate lace appliqués. The semi-sheer bodice with exposed boning is straight from the bridal catwalks, while the glittering glass beads add an eye-catching shimmer to the whole design.
Stockton’s attractive V-neck bodice has a contemporary keyhole detail and its bold hem is edged with exquisite lace appliqués. We particularly love the delicate straps and striking crossed back, which add a stunning touch of 1920’s glamour.
Lastly, cast your eyes down to the wow-factor hem, edged in luxurious lace. Sheath wedding dresses are ideal for brides who prefer a smaller train and Dion combines the best of both worlds, with a lightweight, easy-to-wear train that’s totally eye-catching.
A celebration of lace
Finally, we have breathtaking Denver, which really does have it all. This figure-enhancing sheath combines statement lace, light-catching beads and layers of intricate Chantilly lace. There's also an illusion back and ornate double train. Real luxury is all in the details and the multiple layers give this design an expensive feel - without the price tag!
The magnificent double train has an extra-large lace hem, which showcases this gorgeous material to the full. The delicately lined lace puddle train is visible beneath the sumptuous appliquéd illusion train, and they come together perfectly for effortless movement. Pair this with our clever Wunderskirt too, to really show it off to its full potential. Then go to town with the sparkle to finish the look!
