Thin, delicate spaghetti straps are perfect if you want something different from the classic strapless look, while thicker lace illusion straps will flatter the shoulders and support a larger bust. Alternatively, perhaps you’d prefer something in between, with scalloped lace edging or floral appliqués to add interest and prettiness across the décolletage.

To inspire you, we’ve picked a few of our favourite wedding dresses with straps below to help you find the one to suit your unique style…

Simply perfect

Let’s start with sleek and minimal Savannah. This ultra-modern sheath is fitted to perfection, and the unbroken lines of the plain crepe create a lovely illusion of length and height.

Delicate spaghetti straps are all that’s needed here to complement the understated V-neck bodice and attractively dipped back. Plus, there are figure-shaping illusion panels at the sides for a stylish contemporary touch.

Then the final detail is the elegant row of covered buttons that leads the eye all the way down to a smart train. Again, unfussy and unembellished, it pools beautifully on the floor in soft ripples. This is a striking look for modern, fashion-conscious brides.

Mix it up

Kamille reveals a totally different way with delicate straps. This design combines vintage-inspired lace with a luxurious modern crepe skirt, for a look that really is the best of both worlds.

The bodice ticks all the boxes for this seasons’s key trends. There’s sheer lace, exposed boning and super pretty beaded straps. The pattern on the lace has a lovely modern feel, while the bodice is also edged in on-trend tape lace.

At the back, there’s an attractive low V-neck alongside more pretty and eye-catching buttons that help to highlight curves.

Then a crisp clean waistline flows into a classic crepe skirt, finished with buttons leading all the way to the flared train. We love this with a little extra sparkle, so try it with a  glittering belt to accentuate the waistline a little more.

Breathtaking style

Cortez is the ultimate in elegant sophistication. Made from shimmering Mikado, it’s a fabulous A-line style that redefines minimalism.

The bodice features a neat V-neckline with sleek Mikado straps that flatter the décolletage and the shoulders. The wider straps also make this a great style for brides looking for a little more coverage and support.

The stylish low back is totally striking and shows off the back beautifully, with the straps perfectly framing the shoulder blades. Then the chic-covered buttons create a focal point that leads to the majestic full skirt in glossy Mikado. Did we mention it has hidden pockets, too? You’re welcome!

Bohemian luxury

Prettily embellished spaghetti straps often give a design a boho feel, as you can see from delightful Ffion, which combines lightweight chiffon with elegant, understated lace.

The bodice has a charming V-neck with beautifully intricate matt lace, featuring dreamy patterns inspired by nature. There’s also modern tape lace edging and, of course, a touch of detail on the slim straps.

The flattering low back has more lovely lace leading to a smart tape lace waistline. We love this with one of our more boho belts, such as sparkling Estella with its clusters of crystals and pearls.

Lastly, there’s the light chiffon skirt, which flows beautifully and is so easy to wear. Falling to the floor in super soft layers, it’s ideal for an informal garden or woodland setting or a ‘barefoot in the sand’ ceremony somewhere tropical!

Dazzling details

Finally, we come to ‘pretty as a princess’ Rylee. The sparkling sweetheart bodice has a deep V-neck complemented by twinkling illusion straps, all covered with exquisite lace appliqués.

The straps lead on to a delightful illusion back that really is magical, and a full tulle skirt. The floral lace covers the waistline and also tumbles prettily down the top of the skirt. Then, when you reach the stunning train, you’ll find there’s more floral lace at the hem, for the perfect finishing touch.

So, we hope we’ve shown you a few options when it comes to choosing your perfect straps. Whether you go for slim spaghetti, pretty illusion or modern Mikado, we know there’s something you’ll love. Don’t forget, we also have beautiful detachable straps too, so you can actually make any design your dream wedding dress with straps!
