Ok, so there is no doubt that everyone has a love affair with wedding dresses. It’s just something instilled in us from childhood, or maybe even the day we are born. That might be why people have so many options—from wedding dress fabrics to designs and even colors (yes, there are plenty of black wedding dresses out there, and some of them look incredible).
Everyone loves the anticipation that builds up while imagining how the bride will look on her wedding day. When it comes to dresses, many live for the glitz and glam, the ruffles and tulle, as these make the most elaborate gowns. But we are firm believers that sometimes less is more—so here are ten simple wedding dress designs that we LOVE!
Simple Wedding Dress Design #10: Essense of Australia D2477
Nothing screams romance more than a beautifully demure off-the-shoulder neckline. And, we love how simply divine D2477 is. A plunging sweetheart neckline, dainty off-the-shoulder straps, and a trumpet silhouette make this simple Essence of Australia wedding dress reminiscent of Old Hollywood style.
When you want simple with many daring details, the Danielle Frankel backless silk sheath is it. The luxurious silk fabric hugs your curves; simple straps provide support, and the dramatic low back with tie detail is purely unexpected. This is comfort meets high-fashion with a dash of sex appeal.
Simple Wedding Dress Design #8: Watters Opaline
If looking like a Princess is your dream wedding day look, Opaline by Watters is for you. Opaline is chic, stylish, and sophisticated—without too much fuss or too many frills. A delicate V-neckline, spaghetti straps, lustrous satin, and full A-line skirt make a decidedly modern fashion statement.
Simple Wedding Dress Design #7: Carolina Herrera Irena
Simple has a different definition for many people, but for us, it doesn’t mean boring. This stunning Carolina Herrera wedding dress named Irena is pure perfection. It’s simple in many ways with no beadwork or lace, but this design is full of style and glamour with a fashion-forward one-shoulder neckline featuring a dramatic bow accent on the shoulder.
Simple Wedding Dress Design #6: Pronovias Enza
Channel your inner Sex and the City vixen with the Pronovias Enza gown, a fairytale ball gown with a genuinely majestic ruched bodice featuring a slight asymmetrical neckline. We love how glamorous the Pronovias Enza gown is. You don’t (always) need wedding gowns with feathers to make a powerful statement, and simple wedding gowns certainly don’t have to be “plain” and boring.
Simple Wedding Dress Design #5: Ines Di Santo Starling
A whimsical beauty ready to make your wedding day dreams come true, the Ines Di Santo Starling gown is sure to delight. It’s effortless without being dull or lazy. Its billowy sheer long sleeves, corset bodice with delicate lace appliques, an off-the-shoulder neckline, and its straight skirt are absolutely divine.
Simple Wedding Dress Design #4: Vera Wang Sophisticated Wedding Dress
This Vera Wang Audrey Hepburn-inspired wedding dress is a classic and iconic look. You’ll be a vision of pure heaven wearing this gown.
With its high, scoop neckline, slim A-line skirt, and sophisticated design, you’ll feel glamorous, confident, and elegant on your wedding day.
The key to a simple but stunning dress lies in focusing on the small details rather than going for lots of glitz and glam. If you love to dance to your own beat while keeping things tasteful and chic, these gowns might be right for you!
This Marchesa Notte gown features a simple bodice with a fun and flirty skirt, making it a fashion statement that is effortlessly you.
Simple Wedding Dress Design #2: Eddy K Gwyneth
Not your average simple mikado wedding gown, the Eddy K Gwyneth gown is classic elegance in the front and a party in the back. The simple V-neckline with its fit-and-flare silhouette is elegant, and the tulle bow in the back is unexpected and fun—a truly magical, bold, and elegant wedding dress.
If chic and sophisticated is your style, you’re going to fall in love with the Pronovias Katheryn gown. Made out of soft crepe fabric, this gown hugs your curves and has a modern feel. We love the long sleeves, sleek silhouette, and low back. And the unexpected beadwork on the back is just the right romantic touch.
