We’ve seen everything from pale pink to bright red. This is definitely a bold choice, but it can be so stunning!

1. Off-the-shoulder dresses

Off-the-shoulder dresses are definitely still in style. They give a romantic and elegant look that will make you feel like a princess on your big day.

Off-the-shoulder dresses can be either classic or modern, so there’s sure to be one that suits your style. You can choose a dress with lace straps for a more traditional look, or go for something with a strapless bodice for a more contemporary vibe. Plus, they are perfect for showing off your beautiful shoulders and neck.

A beautiful example would be Wren a dress by Wilderly Bride – romantic lace and delicate beading adorn the bodice of a strapless A-line gown. Giving a modern edge with clean lines.

Whichever style you choose, we’re sure you’ll look gorgeous in an off-the-shoulder wedding dress!

2. Lace wedding dresses

Lace wedding dresses are one of the most popular styles for brides. A lace wedding gown is romantic, elegant and timeless, and can be dressed up or down depending on your preference. Lace dresses are also flattering on any body type. If you’re looking for a dress that is both classic and stylish, a lace wedding dress is a great choice for making a fashion-forward statement.

There are many different types of lace, so you can find the perfect one for your dress. Some of the most popular types of lace include Chantilly, corded, floral lace and embroidered lace. Each type of lace has its own unique look. Vintage-inspired classic beauty. You can also find lace in a variety of colours, so you can choose the perfect shade for your dress.

Whether it’s intricate lace detailing or an all-over lace design, lace dresses are sure to turn heads. A beautiful example of a lace wedding dress would be Panjin by Pronovias

An elegant mermaid gown of Chantilly lace and a soft layer of tulle on the skirt. Complete with a chic boat neck and elegant long sleeves, lace appliqués enhance the texture of the Chantilly lace, while a plunge back and invisible closure creates a smooth silhouette that flatters the body. Mermaid styles are simply stunning and create a sexy silhouette.

3. Coloured wedding dresses

If you’re looking for something a little different, why not try a coloured wedding dress? Whether it’s a light pastel shade or a bold statement colour, adding a pop of colour to your wedding dress is a great way to stand out from the crowd.

If you’re looking for something unique and different, try out a two-piece wedding dress. Two-piece wedding dresses are becoming more popular among brides who want to show off their individuality. Plus, they are perfect for hot summer days or destination weddings. If you’re looking to make a statement on your big day, a two-piece dress is the way to go!

6. Dresses with sleeves

Wedding dresses with sleeves are having a moment. From delicate cap sleeves to billowing bell long-sleeved wedding dresses with sleeves are becoming more popular as brides strive for a more modest look. Sleeves can be long or short, and they can be made from a variety of fabrics.

A beautiful example would be Austin by Lillian West. Allover embroidered eyelet lace creates an edgy, vintage vibe on this long sleeve fit and flare bridal gown.

Trim lace details the V-neckline, empire waist, and bell sleeves. The gorgeous keyhole back features a small lace-up detail, an invisible zipper, and a sheer chapel length train. For a more traditional look, a version with standard long sleeves is also available.

7. High-low wedding dresses

High-low wedding dresses are a great choice for brides who want a little bit of both worlds. Something for the modern bride in which you are sure to make a grand entrance with that high fashion look. These dresses have a long train in the back and a shorter skirt in the front, making them both stylish and practical.
