If your everyday look is more contemporary than classic then that should also be the vibe for your big day. And, you’re in luck, as there’s a wealth of choice when it comes to modern wedding dresses. Our exclusive WED2B collections include everything from slinky sheaths to fashion-forward illusion lace styles, so there really is something for everyone.
We have four brand new modern wedding dresses to reveal today. Each one is chic, stylish and full of understated contemporary cool. Walk down the aisle in one of these and you really will stand out from the crowd…
Sleek and seductive
Let’s start with gorgeous Landon, our first ever strapless crepe sheath. Strapless necklines are totally on-trend and the boned sweetheart bodice adds a touch of romance to this sleek design. Stretch crepe is also the perfect material for modern wedding dresses, as it hugs the figure and creates an unfussy but super flattering silhouette.
The entire bodice is covered in exquisite embroidered lace, which continues onto the hips. Then cast your eyes further down and you’ll get to the beautiful trailing skirt. The contrast between the soft ivory crepe and the lace cut-out train is just breathtaking. Our simple but elegant Willa veil is a great match for this design. Plus, for a bit of extra sparkle, you could try it with our Estella belt and our Petal tiara too. Alternatively, if you’d prefer a sheath with straps, take a look at Hayden or Richmond instead.
Our next style is a Platinum Edition sheath with plenty of fashion-forward details, such as a plunging neckline and boned bodice. Rocco is made from soft tulle, which has been decorated with delicate lace appliqués layered onto vintage-style Chantilly lace. The two different styles of lace combine to create a beautiful textured effect. The leafy floral appliqués are also embellished with clear sequins, tiny ornate pearls and iridescent beading that trails prettily down the dress.
The long train on this design is just stunning and is perfectly finished off with an ornate lace hem. To really show this skirt off in all its glory, try it with our Wunderskirt, which is designed to sculpt and shape while creating soft volume at the hem. It also looks fabulous with our sparkling Layla belt and our beaded Rococo veil. If you like this look, make sure you also check out Syrah and Kennedy, two more modern wedding dresses with an on-trend sheath design.
A bohemian sheath
Daya, a new sheath style by Heidi Hudson, features a contemporary high boat neckline made from illusion tulle with a beautifully ornate beaded edge. There's also gorgeous tiny beading all over this dress but no lace. So if you’re looking for a lace-free dress, this could be the one for you. The elegant floaty sleeves are also super flattering and super dreamy!
Add some sparkle
This dress also has a stylish thin belt to accentuate and complement the waistline. Alternatively, if you’d like a little more sparkle, you can simply wear one of our glittering Amixi belts over the top.
Layers of soft tulle
The volume at the bottom of the skirt is created from layers and layers of soft tulle, which will swish beautifully as you walk. Try this boho beauty with a couple of our Calli hair vines too, worn with tumbling tresses for a thoroughly modern but romantic feel.
Elegant design details
Finally, we have Augusta, a new design by Anna Sorrano. Lace is a super versatile material and, used carefully, it’s the perfect embellishment for modern wedding dresses. Here illusion lace has been used across the bodice and the plunging neckline. There are also clever side panels that perfectly flatter the figure.
The wide embroidered straps, with stunning scalloped edging, look gorgeous but also provide plenty of support.
Turn around and you’ll reveal the show-stopping lace back. The contemporary design of the lace is ideal for modern brides who want something that’s classic with a contemporary twist. Wear this with our lace-edged Saffron veil, which complements this design perfectly.
A modern marvel
This fitted sheath silhouette is ideal for showing off natural curves and the lace appliqués, that continue down to the floral lace hem, really are delightful. So, if you’re looking for a traditional bridal style with a stunning modern feel, look no further!
