Choosing the right bridal look is all about embracing your personal style. Sure, there’s plenty of lace, sequins, beading, layers, and frills on offer in the wedding dress world, but if clean lines and unfussy fabrications are more your speed, you’ve got tons of options, too. Minimalist wedding dresses–think simple silhouettes, subtle details, and sleek fabrics like satin and stretch crepe–can make as major a statement as an embellished ballgown. At the end of the day, after all, you should be wearing your dress; it shouldn’t be wearing you.
If the less-is-more thing speaks to you, lean into the minimalist bride vibe! Ahead, you’ll find 11 wedding dresses that are simple, understated, and utterly unforgettable.
