Simple Wedding Dresses

Extravagant bridal gowns come and go, but simple wedding dresses are always chic. Wonderfully versatile, these designs are available in every style imaginable. Modern brides are more often opting for minimalist gowns, but what makes a wedding dress qualify as simple? There is no one definition, but they typically have fewer embellishments including beading, sequins, and lace appliques. Instead, the focus is on high quality materials and exceptional tailoring, sometimes including bold architectural styles. While ornamentation typically takes a backseat for simple wedding gowns, it doesn't need to be abandoned altogether. Rather, these styles frequently include just one or two elements to play up. This allows them to function as eye-catching accents instead of all-over designs. Not sure if this type of bridal dress is right for your wedding day? Remember: simple need not mean boring. When in doubt, less is more.

About our Minimalist Gowns

If you dream of an elegant ceremony but prefer understated sophistication, you are the perfect candidate for a minimalist wedding dress.

Whether you’re looking for a sheath silhouette or a ball gown, you’ll find a style that fits your taste at Moonlight Bridal. We're proud to provide a variety of options that range from whimsical to sultry. These can be found in many lengths and with a range of beautiful necklines and materials. Our favorites include:

  • The Moonlight Collection pleated Mikado gown known as Style J6852 is a universally flattering A-line dress with bold details including a pointed sweetheart neckline and a high slit. Other features include an open back, beautifully placed buttons, and a flowy sweep train.
  • With a sensual cut like the trendy mermaid aesthetic, there is no need to go over the top with embellishments. Moonlight Tango Style T956 is a simple mermaid gown crafted with a smooth Divina crepe and finished with a gorgeous chiffon bow. Subtle details such as sweet embroidered flowers and beaded straps stand out far more than they would on a heavily embellished dress.
  • Strapless dresses have dominated for decades, but there's something truly special about a chic long-sleeve wedding dress. Moonlight Collection Style J6791 is the definition of an elegant, minimalist gown. This form-fitting design is made with crepe back satin and includes stunning long sleeves. The open illusion cowl back combined with a trail of buttons creates a mesmerizing look.
