Beautiful buttons, we love them! Covered or crystal, they’re such an attractive delicate feature. And we’re not the only ones who’ve noticed. Wedding dresses with buttons are currently bang on trend.

The buttons are normally placed along the zip covering running down the back of the dress, with an elastic loop to close over the zip. So they're pretty and practical! There are also a variety of designs for wedding dresses with buttons, including satin covered, crystal, pearl or beaded buttons, so you can take your pick just like a kid in a sweetshop!

Remember, you’ll have your back to your guests for a large part of the ceremony and later on the dance floor. So make sure you give them something pretty to look at, whether it be sheer lace embroidery, a plunging back or dainty buttons. We’ve chosen three of our favourite wedding dresses with buttons to inspire you…

Soft as satin

There’s plenty to love about this vintage ball gown in oyster satin. The bodice is encrusted with fabulous iridescent crystals and beads while the luxurious A-line skirt is simple, stunning and flatters all body shapes. There are also clever hidden pockets for that all important handkerchief and lipgloss!

Crystal magic

Turn around and you’ll discover a delicate row of crystal buttons, running from the top of the bodice and down the skirt. Easy to fasten, they create a glittering and elegant finish.

This is such an easy style to wear it needs very little embellishment. Add extra oomph to the skirt with our layered 153 underskirt. Our Langley veil  comes with just a scattering of sparkle to suit this sophisticated look while the frosted crystals in our Zahara belt will accentuate your waist and complement the crystal buttons. Then all you need is a chic up-do topped off with our Bliss hair pin. If you love Beckett’s elegant satin chic take a look at our Sorella and Destin dresses too.
