With recent world events many brides are opting for scaled back weddings that are smaller and more intimate affairs. Many of our plainer gowns are becoming increasingly popular for these brides. So if you are looking for a non-fussy, less is more gown for your less extravagant nuptials then read on…

Our classic strappy fit and flare gowns are hugely popular and these 2 examples Freya, style 69602 and Valerie, style 18505 both have classic  v necklines too. The difference between them is that Freya is made of lace and tulle with more detailed lace to the skirt, whereas Valerie has a plainer crepe skirt but more detailed train and crossover back straps.

For an understated, chic look our brides love Violet, style 18501 in crepe fabric. The simplicity speaks for itself and is ultra-modern. It comes with a delicate sparkle belt, and for a winter or outdoor wedding you could add the matching cape sold separately as style 18502.

Another effortlessly chic and easy to wear gown is Viviana, style 18506 made of jersey and chiffon. With its long sleeves this is a really big hit right now. It has that vintage feel and with its beaded belt and cuffs there is really no need to add jewellery and accessories. The surprise to this style is it’s open back!

Willodean, style 18451 is a beautiful minimalistic gown made in plain easy to wear crepe with just a touch of delicately beaded appliques to the shoulder, sides and back. The train is left plain and we would pear this with a simple and delicate silver chain bracelet and stud earrings.

The young and trendy Waltruda, style 18454 in floaty chiffon and jersey has a pearl beaded high halter-neckline and open back. The pearl theme is continued onto the waist belt and the wearer can happily accessorise with more delicate pearl studs and a bracelet. We could recommend that the hair is styled in a modern ponytail or up do to make the most of the beaded detailing.
