Keep it simple with a minimalist wedding dress. This type of dress is elegant and beautiful, and will allow you to be comfortable on your big day. With a variety of minimalist dress styles, you have several options for keeping it simple yet classy. Pair this type of wedding dress with a lace or sparkly veil to add a pop of texture, or keep it minimal with a short and sweet veil. This style of dress is also great for incorporating vibrant flowers that will catch people’s eye.

Ball Gown

A classic that will never go out of style, a ball gown wedding dress is sure to be a knockout when you walk down the aisle. Feel like a princess as you take on this amazing dress style and feel confident in knowing that all eyes will be on you. With a variety of options, a ball gown wedding dress can come in all sorts of textures and tones to suit your preferences.

Tiered dresses are fun and trendy, with many possibilities to consider. Tiers come in a variety of layers, and the amount your dress possesses is totally up to you! Keep it simple by having a few layers to your dress, or go all out with more tiers to give yourself a ball gown style. Either way, tiered dresses are beautiful and will give you that extra bit of flare on your wedding day. A long sheer wedding veil is a harmonious accent to this style dress, and any choice of flowers can fit well with a tiered dress.

Who doesn’t love a good sparkly dress, especially a sparkly wedding dress? Keep your wedding guests on their toes as you walk down the aisle shimmering and glowing away. Catch the light and ignite the venue in a sparkly wedding dress, whether with glitter, sequins, or even rhinestones. This choice of a wedding dress will be sure to set the tone for the rest of your wedding day. Add a simple veil or a sparkly headpiece, and you’re all set!

Whether you decide on a mermaid style, a sweetheart neckline, or a ball gown, you can never go wrong with incorporating ruffles into your wedding dress. Ruffles are so versatile, and look so delicately beautiful. Ruffles can be a part of your entire dress, the sleeves, or simply just the bottom of your dress. No matter what you choose, a ruffled wedding dress is an amazing choice. Incorporate some ruffles into your veil as well for double the “wow-factor.”

One Shoulder

Deciding between a strapless dress, or straps and sleeves can be a difficult decision. If you can’t make up your mind, you can always go with the one shoulder wedding dress. A one shoulder strap or sleeve can be paired with just about any type of wedding dress, and will give you a uniqueness that will look so simple yet beautiful on your big day. Accent a one shoulder dress with a unique headpiece or lace veil and create an amazing, show stopping wedding day look.

With a variety of options, sheer dresses can take on many shades of ivory, blush, champagne, and more. Designs can range from minimalistic to over the top glitz and glam, but the choice is yours. Add in a sheer veil and neutral colored flowers to top off the complete look and own your wedding day.
