When it comes to bridal gowns, there are two main schools of thought: traditional and modern. Traditional gowns are often characterized by their full skirts, delicate lace details, and princess-like silhouettes. Modern gowns, on the other hand, can be a little more sleek (depending on the silhouette) and either feature 3D texture or minimalist details.
In recent years, there has been a growing trend towards contemporary silhouettes in bridal gowns. This trend is driven by a number of factors, including the rise of social media, the increasing popularity of destination weddings, and the desire for brides to have a more unique and personal wedding day!
Contemporary bridal gowns are all about balance. These gowns are perfect for brides who want to look stylish and elegant on their wedding day, without sacrificing comfort or individuality.
There are a variety of different contemporary silhouettes to choose from, so you're sure to find one that flatters your figure and your personal style! Some popular options include:
A-line gowns: A-line gowns are a classic choice for contemporary brides. They’re flattering on all body types, and they can be dressed up or down depending on the occasion. We particularly love a more minimalist A-line gown for the contemporary gown!
Ballet-inspired gowns: Ballet-inspired gowns are another great option for contemporary brides. They are characterized by their soft, flowing skirts and delicate details. Some ballet-inspired wedding dresses are tea length, while others can be full length and feature beautifully tiered skirts.
Strapless gowns: Strapless gowns are a bold and glamorous choice for contemporary brides! They are perfect for showing off your shoulders and collarbone - pop a little bit of bold highlighter on your collarbones and you’ll truly pop on your wedding day.
Off-the-shoulder gowns: Off-the-shoulder gowns are another great option for contemporary brides who want to show off their shoulders! They’re more relaxed and informal than strapless gowns, and they can be easily dressed up or down. We love a boho-inspired off the shoulder wedding dress.
No matter what your personal style, there is a contemporary bridal gown out there for you. So, if you're looking for something different and unique, consider a contemporary silhouette for your wedding day.
