Contemporary gowns characterised by sleek and simple designs

If you're a city girl at heart, the meringue-styled traditional wedding dress might not be your happily-ever-after. If you're after an altogether simpler affair, then take inspiration from these seven stunning dress designs that focus on shape, silhouette, and style. 


Industrial Chic

If you're having an outdoor wedding, consider a chic jacket or cover-up for cooler weather, and contrast dark colours with a white dress.


Understated Elegance

Gown by Ralph Lauren

Keep it simple with a back-to-basics dress - pay attention to quality material and exceptional tailoring, as with this Ralph Lauren gown, for maximum affect.


Crystal Cascade

Play with tradition by trying light and pastel colours as an alternative to white and ivory, and embrace embellishment for extra glamour. 


Free Spirit

Experiment with skirt length, layers and materials - lace and frills are feminine, but keep it flirty and fresh by adopting a shorter dress. 


What Lies Beneath

Sheer, embroidered and lace materials are stunning when worn with the correct undergarments - carefully consider what will be visible, and consult with a specialist seamstress.


Fire and Ice

For a modern look, try different materials and shades like satin and metallics, for a subtle shimmer as you walk down the aisle.
