Boho, glamorous and unconventional, a sheath wedding dress is the perfect choice for brides who want a dress that feels as light as air but looks totally sensational.

Why a sheath wedding dress?

A column or sheath wedding dress creates an understated silhouette and is often made from light and flowing fabrics. The narrow shape flows straight down from the neckline to the hem, skimming the hips beautifully. It’s the ideal silhouette for lean and petite frames, as well as brides with hourglass figures who want to highlight their curves.

The super sexy style and delicate material also make this a great choice for destination or beach weddings, because it’s cool, comfortable and lightweight. If you’re marrying overseas you’ll need to take your dress with you on the plane too, so a light option is ideal. Just remember to ask in-store for one of our specialist wedding dress storage boxes (available in stores nationwide).

Below our expert bridal consultants have picked two of their favourite new designs to show you why a sheath wedding dress could be the one for you. Enjoy!

Strike a pose

Breathtaking Jessie has all the wow factor that our Signature Collection is renowned for. This stunning sheath wedding dress combines a slinky, figure-hugging silhouette with a new style of Chantilly lace and a luxurious beaded bodice. It really is divine!

A beaded masterpiece

The ornamental beading on the bodice has been created using a new technique to make it extra secure. The finish really is exquisite and will sparkle from every angle as you walk down that aisle.

Statement wedding dress

Comfort and style

The low V-neck back is just as stunning, and features more intricate beading. It is also high enough to conceal your bra and shapewear, so you’ll feel comfortable and supported, as well as drop dead gorgeous!

Low back wedding dress

Distinctive design

The skirt is the ideal finishing touch and features a lace overlay, embellished with more sparkling beading. The figure-hugging skirt is also the perfect match for our clever Wunderskirt. Wear it underneath to kick the skirt out at the bottom and create the ideal shape. A dress this detailed doesn’t need too many glitzy accessories either, so just add our Willa veil to complete the look, and then you’re done!

Make a fashion statement

Next we have Logan, a totally different sheath wedding dress that is just as breathtaking. This elegant design is a look that comes straight from the bridal catwalks, with its slinky crepe skirt, cross keyhole back and unique ‘tape’ style of lace. We’re in love!

A contemporary feel

The bodice has a fashionable plunging neckline surrounded by beautiful lace, which is inspired by the growing trend for tape lace. The panelled effect the tape lace creates helps to draw attention to the waistline and adds support too. The bold, ornate embroidery also perfectly entwines with the taping, to create a striking contemporary look.

At cross purposes

The crossover keyhole back is unique and it’s the perfect showcase for the beautiful lace. This shape also offers plenty of support and coverage, combined with the chic row of covered buttons.

Simply elegant crepe

The classic crepe skirt is the ideal partner to the detailed bodice. This clean-cut, puddle train will flow prettily behind you, while allowing for plenty of movement. We suggest wearing it with our elegant Wunderskirt too, to create a smooth and flowing shape. Then, just add our eye-catching Solstice belt and a smart Alpha hair comb. Alternatively, if you’d like to try a strapless sheath wedding dress, take a look at Landon instead.
