While princess gowns may be right for some, often, simple wedding dresses can look even chicer. If your style skews more minimalist on an everyday basis, why feel obligated to put on a frou frou gown for your big day? Amid planning the guest list, catering, floral arrangements, and photographer, keeping one key part of the wedding totally unfussy can be a welcome change of pace.
For Spring 2017, designers showed a range of refreshingly unadorned gowns, letting details like low-cut backs, subtle pleats, and flattering A-line skirts take center stage. Ahead, you’ll find inspiration for the modern, understated bride from designers like Oscar de la Renta, Delphine Manivet, Lela Rose, and more.
