Keeping it simple is still a huge trend, thanks to the oh-so-chic Duchess of Sussex and her pared-back wedding day style. Forget froufrou and frills, for on-trend brides, it’s all about simple wedding dresses and modern minimalism.
So, if you’re looking for a pared-back silhouette, sleek lines and the barest hint of sparkle, then read on. Our expert stylists have picked three dresses below that totally nail the minimalist trend, whether you want to look romantic, sexy or boho. These are dresses that really are fit for a 21st Century princess…
Blaise is a masterpiece of alluring minimalism. This figure-hugging sheath design is made from smooth crepe with just one or two subtle features to complement the clean lines.
Blaise, available in sizes 10 to 20
The bodice has a seductive plunging neckline with a discreet illusion panel, so it stays just the right side of revealing.
Up close and personal
Look closely and you can see how exquisite the crepe is. The bodice also features flattering princess seams, which follow your curves and enhance your shape.
At the back, there’s an on-trend scooped back and delicate spaghetti straps for extra support. The only extra detail is a chic row of covered buttons, which follow and accentuate your curves while drawing all eyes down to the beautiful skirt.
There’s no need to wear an underskirt with this understated design. There’s no need to dress it up at all! But if you do want to add a little embellishment, our elegant Aurelia tiara combined with our sparkling Estella belt are the perfect match. And, if we’ve inspired you to try out more simple wedding dresses, we think you’ll love Magda, Sara and Amore too.
Refined and romantic
This beautiful A-line design is deceptively simple. Its understated styling and uncomplicated, whimsical feel that will ensure you look amazing as you walk down that aisle.
The stylish pleated waistband is bang on trend but also highlights and defines the waist perfectly. We love the draped shoulders too, which are great for softy covering and flattering the tricky upper arm area.
Look closely and you can see the neat pleating on the beautifully soft chiffon waistband.
The low down
Turn around and the simple styling continues with a stunning plunging back. It’s revealing but still offers plenty of gentle coverage when combined with the floaty sleeves. Wear with long flowing hair and a delicate halo to complete the look.
Softly does it
The soft chiffon skirt has a rolled hem finish, which gives it a clean and simple feel. There’s also no need to wear an underskirt, so you can float down that aisle feeling gorgeous, unencumbered and totally free! For a similar look but with a bit more sparkle take a look at Tanya or, for a high neckline like Meghan Markle, try Sussex.
We love the directional gathers on the bodice of this boho Heidi Hudson dress. They’re stylish but also super flattering. The soft chiffon skirt is just the icing on the wedding cake!
The understated sweetheart bodice here can be styled up or down to suit your look. Here we’ve kept it simple, with just a delicate floral halo and tumbling tresses.
At the back, there are more dainty pleats to highlight your nipped-in waist. For an even more eye-eye-catching look, why not add our crystal-covered Solstice belt too?
The soft chiffon skirt is as light as air and flows beautifully down from the gathered bodice. It’s the perfect style for a barefoot beach wedding, as there’s no need for an underskirt and it will keep you feeling cool and comfortable all day long. Alternatively, if you adore simple wedding dresses like this one but would prefer a bit of lace, try Eve.
