With a hint of lace trim along the hem and delicate bows at the shoulders, you’ll look effortlessly elegant while feeling completely comfortable.

Best Floral Print: Luisa Beccaria Silk-Gauze Gown
The Modiste is known for its impeccable taste and attention to detail. This spring, it’s bringing us one of our favorite looks of the season—a silk-gauze dress with a beautiful print. We love how the design plays off the shape of the body and the lightness of the fabric. Wear yours over everything from jeans to skirts to dresses.
Most Ethereal: LoveShackFancy “Cornelia Dress”
LoveShackFancy is a boutique bridal shop based out of New York City. Their designs are inspired by classic Hollywood glamour and vintage couture. They offer custom alterations and design services, and provide a unique experience for every bride.
Most Ornate: Richard Quinn Crystal and Bead-Embellished Silk-Tulle Midi Dress
The midi dress is one of my favorite styles. I love how it elongates the body while still being comfortable enough to wear throughout the day. This particular style features a silk tulle bodice accented with crystal beads and a matching ribbon belt. A subtle bow detail adds just the right amount of femininity to this otherwise masculine piece.
For a Formal Wedding: Markarian “Emma” Pink Silk Dupioni Gown
The Ranna Gill Beading Gown is a stunning addition to the collection of gowns designed by fashion designer Ranna Gill. This strapless ballgown features a bodice covered in intricate beadwork and lace appliques. A sweetheart neckline adds a touch of femininity while the skirt falls into a full train. Pair it with a pair of simple pearl drop earrings and some delicate diamond studs for a look that is both elegant and timeless.
For the Minimalist: Savannah Miller “Indra” Gown
Savannah Miller Bridal has been making wedding dresses since 2013. We love how the brand uses classic silhouettes and timeless designs to make brides feel comfortable during their big day. This dress is no exception. With its elegant lines and soft color palette, it feels just as beautiful worn for a special occasion as it does for a wedding.
The strapless design makes it easy to slip into without worrying about slipping out of your dress. And while you’re getting ready, you’ll enjoy the fact that there are no straps to worry about — even though this dress is designed to fit perfectly over your shoulders.
This dress is made of silk satin and tulle, and the skirt is lined with organza. You’ll find a concealed zipper along the side seam and a hidden hook closure at the waistline. A sweetheart neckline adds some extra detail to the bodice, and the cap sleeve creates a pretty shape.
You’ll want to keep your accessories minimal and understated. Choose a pair of nude heels or wedges and add a clutch bag to carry your essentials. For added drama, try pairing this look with a statement necklace and earrings.

This dress is crafted from lightweight tulle and designed to have a relaxed fit. It’s a great choice for a casual garden wedding where you want something light and airy.
Most Dramatic: Danielle Frankel “Rosalie” Gown
The Regency era was one of fashion’s most dramatic periods. Women wore elaborate dresses adorned with feathers and lace. They had long hair piled high atop their heads. And they often looked like queens.
This flowing dress from Danielle Frankel boasts both a classic silhouette and a modern edge. A wide empire waist leads into a full skirt that falls just above the knee. The bodice features a deep V-neckline and a sweetheart bustle. Long sleeves end in ruffles and are finished off with delicate embroidery.
A pair of statement earrings completes the look. Wear yours with confidence.
Most Boudoir-Inspired: Reformation “Limoncello” Dress
This endlessly sweet off-the shoulder dress is reminiscent of what I imagine Daphne Bridgertons would wear as a nightgowned. A soft, feminine silhouette and a flattering fit make it perfect for day or evening.
For a dreamy and bordello inspired second look – this frocks will do just the trick!
Best Empire-Waist: Lein Flocked Lace Gown
The fashion world loves a good empire waistline. This style is flattering for almost every figure type — it accentuates your waist while still showing off your curves. But what makes this particular silhouette so great? Well, there are plenty of reasons why you should consider wearing one. For starters, the empire waistline is versatile enough to wear day or night. You can easily transition from work to play with ease thanks to a simple shift dress or maxi skirt. And since you don’t have to worry about looking like you’re trying too hard, you can feel confident in whatever you choose to wear.
Another reason to embrace this shape is because it works well with just about everything else in your closet. If you want to add some edge to your look, try pairing your empire waist with a statement necklace or even a bolder belt. Or, if you prefer something more subtle, opt for a neutral color palette and keep things simple with accessories. Either way, you’ll find yourself feeling polished and put together no matter how you decide to accessorize.
