10 Simple Wedding Dresses for the Contemporary Bride
Shop The Story
Simple wedding dresses are all about the unadorned, the unbeaded, the unstructured.
Sometimes, the most elegant wedding looks are the most simple. And even if you’re opting for a minimalist style, you can still find a dress infused with boho and beachy elements that make it unique. If you want to keep things super casual, a lot of brides are also opting for short or T-length wedding dresses right now (especially for alternative ceremonies planned to fit safety guidelines surrounding the COVID-19 outbreak).
If you love the idea of going simple but are worried about the style looking more plain than refined, look for something with a few extra details. Pick a simple lace wedding dress where the silhouette is a bit less structured, for example, or a basic silhouette complemented by a draped neckline. You could always experiment with bold accessories, too.
