Today’s brides have ripped up the rule book when it comes to wedding dress styles and now every bride can find her own unique style. There are big skirts, details and ruffles a plenty for princess brides, floaty sheath dresses draped in lace for boho brides and an amazing selection of modern wedding dresses for brides who want something that oozes catwalk chic, contemporary style and pared down, up-to-date elegance.
Think luxurious fabrics, daring silhouettes and catwalk-inspired modern wedding dresses that will really make a statement on your big day. At WED2B we also work hard to make sure our modern wedding dresses are super affordable but with absolutely no compromise on style and quality.
Our style experts have picked a few of their favourites below to help you decide….
Farah is sophisticated modern style at its best. The sleek white skirt attractively hugs the curves while the illusion bodice and delicate sleeves add beautiful detail and interest. This narrow sheath style is ideal for lean and petite frames or for hourglass brides who want to show off their curves.
Time for a close up
Look closer and you’ll see that the gorgeous illusion neckline and sleeves, made from light tulle, are finished with embroidered lace appliqués and elegant sparkling beads.
At the back the exquisite detailing continues down the skirt and there are also crepe covered buttons that are both functional and pretty. Veils don’t have to feel traditional and our Chrissy veil, with its simple styling and scattering of diamantés, is the perfect match for modern wedding dresses.
The perfect cut
A modern masterpiece
Yasmin is one of our absolute favourites when it comes to contemporary bridal chic. This deceptively simple A-line style features luxurious organza pleats that are super flattering and finish with a gorgeous splash of sparkle on the hip.
The gentle pleats flatter the waist while the sweetheart bodice is soft and feminine without being too revealing. Although, if you want a little more coverage, try it with our lace Andi straps or our stunning Caprice jacket to create two looks in one.
The slim A-line shape here creates a smooth silhouette while the bodice will pull your waist in, thanks to the clever lace-up back.
This dress looks great worn with our 163 underskirt to kick the skirt out a little more. Why not also try it with our sparkling Royale tiara, for a touch more glitz? And, if you love this simple draped style, we think you’ll also love our Sassi, Addison and Venus designs.
It’s the sparkling illusion details in this design that really make it stand out from the crowd. With its delicate embroidered straps, glittering beading and on-trend side panels there’s so much to love. Plus the detailing on the back is guaranteed to take your guests’ breath away!
It’s a cover up
At the front the seemingly plunging neckline is actually offset by illusion inserts that offer plenty of coverage. The gently falling skirt manages to cleverly combine bohemian softness with modern styling.
The attractively detailed back is daring and on-trend but also offers plenty of modest coverage. When it comes to styling, the floral details are the perfect match for our fabulous Autumn headband.
Home or away?
This style of dress is ideal for weddings abroad too, as it’s floaty, cool and easy to transport. For more contemporary lightweight styles with plenty of sparkle add Tessa, Myla and Aspen to your must-try list too.
The clean cut skirt on this sparkling new A-line makes it the perfect contemporary choice for brides who love the Anna Sorrano range. The pretty pearl additions to the beaded bodice are just to die for.
Up close and personal
The bodice details are exquisite but unfussy, perfect for the pared down, modern look. We just love the sparkling silver beads, delicate silver thread and illusion neckline, which combine to ensure the bodice is always the right side of revealing.
In great shape
Turn around and the chic lace-up design means the dress will mould to fit you perfectly. An A-line skirt flatters most body shapes but is ideal for balancing out pear-shaped figures. Wear this with our 163 underskirt and our stunning Estella belt for a little extra volume and waist definition.
For the finishing touches, this dress will look sensational with our Chrissy veil and our Aurelia tiara. And if you like the feel of this simple A-line skirt combined with a detailed bodice check out Odette, Ariana and Regan too.
This beautiful crepe sheath combines two of the hottest trends for modern wedding dresses, with its contemporary floral embroidery and striking key-hole back. The luxurious crepe is also lined with soft jersey so it’s both super comfortable and super stylish.
The big reveal
The keyhole back is sexy and supportive while the covered zip combined with delicate buttons ensures the back is both practical and stylish.
An eye-catching neckline
A high boat neckline is a beautiful modern look that really shows off a slim neck and shoulders. It’s also a good choice for pear and rectangle body shapes because it draws the eye up to the neck and face and away from the tummy area.
This super soft crepe sheath needs no underskirt. Instead accessorise with our simple Gatsby headband and a pair of chic pearl earrings. And, if ultra feminine sheath dresses are your thing, make sure Leona and Sawyer are on your radar too.
