Simple, elegant & plain wedding dresses

Traza Luna Novias V-neck ballgown wedding dress London

You know what they say: less is more! Choosing a simple, elegant wedding dress is a great option if you prefer the minimalist look and want to keep clear of all the glitz and glam. Simple dresses may sound toned down, but their exquisite design, stunning structure, cleans lines and effortless beauty are all you need to let the bride shine. Plain wedding dresses are also timeless, and perfect for brides who want a design with both traditional and modern elements.

If you’re keen on wearing a plain wedding dress, here’s what you should know!

  • They’re less forgiving so it’s worth investing in a good set of underwear before you begin wedding dress shopping.
  • If you are a lover of accessories, wearing a simple wedding dress is ideal as you can go all out with styling and create loads of different looks!
  • If you want to highlight your shape, wearing a plain wedding dress with less layers is best. Remember, pick the silhouette that flatters you the most, rather than going with the latest trend.
  • Plain wedding dresses will have high-quality fabrics, but it’s the fabric that makes these dresses! If you’re having a warm destination wedding and want a figure hugging dress with minimal layers, try a stretch crepe style. Or if you fancy a little more luxury, go for a stunning satin gown. Whatever you decide, make sure you choose the fabric that feels right for you.
