Four totally different modern wedding dresses
How would you describe your everyday look? If the answer is more contemporary than classic, then our selection of modern wedding dresses is for you.
It includes everything from slinky sheaths to fashion-forward illusion lace styles and glorious ballgowns. There really is something for everyone!
We’ve picked four very different modern wedding dresses below to inspire you and help you find the right look. 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…
Bruna, a romantic sheath from our Signature Collection, ticks all the trend boxes this season. This figure-hugging style is a real showstopper and is covered from neckline to train with ornate embroidered lace appliqués.
There’s also a pretty Chantilly lace underlayer and the bodice is lined with organza to give the semi-exposed boning that’s a key look for the coming year.
The lacy off-the-shoulder straps sit perfectly with the dipped V-neckline and fall softly across the tops of the arms.
Plus, for that final touch of wow factor, the skirt also ends in an exquisite scalloped-edge, illusion train.
Available in classic ivory or delicate blush, this dress looks amazing with our glittering Estella Belt and our bouncy Margot veil in plain tulle.
The standout features of this design are a beautiful keyhole back and a striking flared mermaid skirt.
Figure-hugging Jamilla also features floral embellished lace with delicate sparkling sequins, while the daring back design is balanced out by pretty cap sleeves that flatter the shoulders.
The keyhole back has been cleverly designed to be super flattering and the dipped back lining gives the illusion of a smaller waist.
There is also a neat row of covered buttons, leading the eyes down to the fabulous skirt and its layers of frothy tulle. Just add a beautiful belt and you’re good to go!
A total showstopper
Kelsey is all about striking contemporary lace. This dazzling mermaid style features a breathtaking illusion back with intricate appliqués that run down the centre in ornate swirls and leaves.
There are also subtle sequins that sparkle prettily under natural light. It really is sensational.
Tear your eyes away from the stunning back and at the front, there’s a classic V-neckline and a bodice decorated with corded lace appliqués.
The skirt then skims the hips beautifully before flaring out in layers of delightful, rippling tulle.
A dress like this works well with a little more detail, so try it with our modern Sapphire belt covered in sparkling gemstones.
All the shimmer
Finally, we have a truly contemporary ballgown and a treat for sparkle fans! Natasha is a Platinum Edition A-line in soft ivory that combines layers of glitter tulle with a bodice embellished with swirling floral appliqués.
It’s also covered in hundreds of pearlescent seeds and sequins and offers glamour and eye-catching sparkle from every angle.
The ornate floral bodice has a plunging neckline, with discreet illusion panels, and a deep V-neck at the back, alongside sheer illusion lace. There’s also a flattering button back for the perfect fit.
This contrasts beautifully with the simple shape of the skirt, which is made from stunning glitter tulle with both ivory and iridescent rainbow glitter, for maximum sparkle. Try this with one of our underskirts to show it off to the full. Then finish with a touch of glitter at the waist and our sensational crystal tiara. For a dramatic Christmas or winter wedding, this dress looks amazing with our Gia bolero too!
