Sensational wedding dresses with straps
When it comes to wedding dresses with straps we love them all! Spaghetti straps, illusion straps, lace straps, appliqué straps - you name it! There are so many options that you’re guaranteed to find a look to suit your style and figure. They’re also ideal if you want a little extra support and comfort.
Thin, delicate spaghetti straps are perfect if you want something different from the classic strapless look, while thicker lace illusion straps will flatter shoulders and add extra coverage to your décolletage. Alternatively, perhaps you’d prefer something in between with scalloped lace edging to add interest and prettiness across the décolletage.
Elegant, refined and unforgettable
Our Anna Sorrano collection offers a truly contemporary take on classic bridal trends and has a huge range of wedding dresses with straps. Traditional, contemporary and timeless, they’re designed for the bride who wants her dress to enhance, but not overpower, her own innate style. The emphasis here is on luxurious fabrics and high quality lace and appliqués, with just a gentle touch of shimmering beading where it’s needed.
Below we’ve picked three totally different wedding dresses with straps from the Anna Sorrano collection to inspire you and show you some of the many options when it comes to sophisticated straps…
Lavinia is a flattering fishtail silhouette that hugs curves in all the right places. And, if you’re looking for delicate straps that elegantly skim the shoulders, then this could be the one for you.
Lace upon lace
Chantilly and Guipure lace appliqués have been layered on soft ivory tulle and given a subtle shimmer from a few well-placed clear sequins. Did you know that the lace straps here can be easily shortened for the perfect fit? The lace hem is also simple to remove for length alterations too.
Turn around and this dress is just as stunning. The low-cut back has a feature lace finish and a sophisticated row of buttons to wow your guests as you walk past.
Memorable and magical
The magnificent train is finished with more of that luxurious lace and a scattering of clear sequins. Pair this dress with our Windsor veil and Solstice belt for a look that’s oh-so refined. Then top it off with our crystal Luna comb for a final touch of sparkle. For more wedding dresses with straps take a look at Charlize, which is a similar fishtail style with slim straps. Alternatively, for slightly thicker straps, check out Callista.
All an illusion
Emma is a fabulous example of dreamy illusion lace straps. Offering a little more coverage than Lavinia’s slim straps, they still feel light and delicate and create a look that’s classic and timeless.
The prettiest appliqués
The bodice of this elegant A-line is covered with floral embroidered lace appliqués. They continue on to the exquisite straps and also fall prettily down the length of the skirt.
Make it yours
This subtle and sophisticated design is perfect for dressing up or down, it’s completely up to you! Here we’ve added our glittering Estella belt and a simple veil. For a different daytime look Emma also looks amazing with our lace Halle bolero.
Fits like a dream
At the back the luxurious lacing gives the bodice the perfect fit. You can also see how the delicate illusion straps frame the shoulders beautifully. For your accessories, a simple pair of drop earrings and perhaps a chic Deco comb, tucked into a neat bun, are all that’s needed.
A flattering silhouette
The tulle A-line skirt flows out gradually and the balanced proportions work brilliantly to draw the eyes upwards and create a beautiful nipped in waist. It’s a style that’s super flattering for all body shapes.The beautiful lace appliqués on the skirt are just the icing on the cake! If you want more wedding dresses with straps like this one then take a look at Adela too. Alternatively, for a similar style with a little more coverage, try Elsie.
What can we say about stunning Giovanna? One of our Platinum Edition gowns, this dress features a fabulous ball gown skirt and an embellished bodice. The beautifully detailed straps are one of the stand-out features, framing the décolletage and forming flattering cap sleeves.
The bodice of this luxurious design is made from Mikado fabric, which has been embellished with crystals, pearls and clear beads for just the right amount of shimmer. The Anna Sorrano collection is know for it’s subtle use of sparkle and this bodice gets it spot on, with a look that’s lavish but still sophisticated.
All in the details
The wider straps are the perfect size to offer plenty of support and coverage to offset the dipped sweetheart neckline. They’re also designed to sit beautifully on the shoulders, creating neat cap sleeves which are super flattering to the tops of the arms.
Style it up
The back has more elegant embellishment alongside neat lacing to ensure the bodice fits like a dream. We think this dress has a distinguished regal feel, so here we’ve styled it with our elegant Odetta comb, for a look that’s fit for a princess.
A wow-factor skirt
The luxurious Mikado skirt features box pleats, which are a subtle and elegant way to create volume. To add even more bounce you can wear this skirt with one, or even two, of our underskirts. Try it with our 153 and 163 underskirts, which are designed for ball gown shapes. If you like this style but want even more shimmer then check out Milan. Alternatively, for a pared-back version, take a look at Tara, which is a little more understated.
