A-line, ballgown, and mermaid silhouette wedding dresses are all popular choices for a more traditional look. If you’re looking for something a little more unique, you could also consider a sheath or empire waist dress. Whether you’re looking for a classic bridal silhouette or something a little more fashion forward for the modern bride, our designers can help you design your dream wedding dress.
There are a variety of fabrics you could choose for a simple wedding dress, but some popular options include satin, lace, and tulle. When attempting a classic silhouette, it’s important to choose the right kind of fabric with the right amount of structure. A sleek fabric like crepe will hold its shape and not add any extra bulk, while a light and airy chiffon will give you that ethereal look. If you’re looking for something in between, consider a satin or taffeta gown. These fabrics have just enough weight to them to create a beautiful drape, while still maintaining a clean and simple look.
Some details you may want to avoid if you’re looking for a simple wedding dress include sequins and other embellishments. You may also want to steer clear of dresses with a lot of elements like puffy or volume skirts, or beaded bodices. A simple dress should have clean lines and a minimalistic silhouette.
When it comes to accessories, less is definitely more when you’re wearing a simple wedding dress. A pair of delicate earrings or a simple bracelet would be a perfect finishing touch. You may also want to consider a veil if you’re looking to add a touch of romance or tradition to your look. Remember that the focus should be on the dress itself, so avoid going overboard with your accessories.
A simpler gown would require a perfect fit to look its best, and a custom-made dress will ensure that you get a dress that follows your exact measurements. The right fit is also extremely important if you have a unique body type or are particularly tall or short. Furthermore, a custom dress will allow you to choose the exact fabric, details, and silhouette that you want. Rather than settling for something off the rack that may not fit your style or complement your unique figure, a custom gown will be made specifically for your body and style preferences.
Make sure to keep your dress clean and free of any dirt or stains. Have it professionally dry cleaned after the wedding day and stored in a cool, dark place. To preserve the colour of your dress, be sure to take it out and air it out every few years to keep the fabric from yellowing.
