Intimate Wedding Dress Trends

By Laurenzo Overee

Traditionally, when choosing a wedding gown, most brides tend to favour grand and sophisticated designs that make them feel and look like royalty. However, these days, there’s a rising trend that offers quite the contrary. Specifically, we’re taking intimate wedding dress trends.  

There are many possibilities behind the preference. Perhaps it’s due to the rise of minimalism, or maybe it’s because more brides prioritise comfort over embellishment. Regardless of the reason, we can vouch that intimate wedding gowns take nothing away from the final look. In fact, they can make a bride’s personality shine!

Intimate Wedding Dress Trends #1 – Go Easy on Fabric

Essentially, an intimate wedding gown is less fabric and more of yourself. While classic ball gowns feature dramatic trains, fluffy tulle skirts, etc., intimate designs focus on accentuating your natural figure. As such, we highly recommend mermaid, sheath, and trumpet silhouettes

Materials like crepe are ideal as they are lightweight and cling around your body. They are a top choice for brides who wish to flaunt their womanly curves. Similarly, chiffon goes easy on the skin, with its sheer and lightweight design, perfect for outdoor weddings where the breeze can create a pretty billowing effect. 

Yes, it means that you’ll have to be more disciplined with your diet to appear at your best on your big day. But trust us, it will be worth it when you look absolutely enchanting at the wedding – and it’s all you!

Intimate Wedding Dress Trends #2 – Stay Subtle

Intimate wedding gowns provide the opposite of “loud” or elaborate patterns. Instead, stick to delicate designs that offer an elegant and understated look. For example, rather than going for sequins bursting with personality, consider a sweet bow sash at the waist or gentle lace cutouts. 

Your intimate wedding gown should avoid lace or keep it to a minimum. Celebrities  ( à la Meghan Markle and Kristen Bell) have shown that it’s possible to look divine without lacy embellishments. 

When in doubt, avoid patterns altogether and let your necklines and backlines do the talking. Open-backs and plunging necklines will instantly style up a simple, unadorned gown. 

Intimate Wedding Dress Trends #3 – Well-Paired Blossoms

A carefully selected bouquet can significantly enhance the overall bridal look. With intimate wedding gowns, brides should look out for gorgeous blooms with minimal colours. 

White roses are timeless favorites paired well with stalks of baby’s breath (these adorable flowers represent everlasting love). Avoid any floral arrangement that might draw attention away from your gorgeous gown. You should always remain the main attraction of the occasion!
