The Best Modern Minimalist Wedding Dresses For Fuss Free Brides

AISLE STYLE, Bridal Style

Modern and minimalist wedding dresses for fuss free brides, we think these styles keep things simple yet elegant for stylish brides looking for a clean and modern bridal style.

Modern Minimalist Wedding Dress | Designer Charlotte Simpson Bridal

I thought I’d do a round-up of the best dresses for those looking for a stylish but simple, elegant and minimalist wedding dress. Whilst there are always undoubtedly going to be boho brides that are lace lovers, romantic dreamers of layers of floaty tulle and glamorous magpies that want all the sparkle, not every bride wants to be overtly girly or to coin a term overly ‘bride-y’ as some of my own clients have said… not sure if that’s a term but we all know what it implies.

By minimalist, I’m talking clean lines, sharp structures, simple silhouettes and not too much embellishment, frill or ‘fuss’. Simple definitely doesn’t mean boring, in fact like many things the simpler the design the harder it is to get right, as it’s ever more important for the fit, cut and fabric to be perfect. Here are some of my favourite styles and designers that I think are getting it oh so right with the perfect balance of simple, elegant and definitely chic.

This post would have been a lot bigger/longer but I decided to keep it to designers or styles that are (to my knowledge) available in London or the UK, nothing more annoying than seeing a dress that’s only available in Australia… yes Pinterest, I’m looking at you!

Modern Minimalist Wedding Dress - Orion by Elizabeth Dye

Orion Gown | Elizabeth Dye (available at Heart Aflutter, London)

A refreshingly understated beauty. This dress is soft luxurious knit fabric which has a bit of stretch which skims and hugs curves in all the right places and a full train adds a touch of drama. The beautiful high boat neckline is elegant and sophisticated whilst the low and open back are alluring and modern. Also long sleeves are just my favourite right now.

Modern Minimalist Wedding Dress - Harper by Charlotte Balbier

Harper | Charlotte Balbier

This is a youthful, sexy but paired back look, the Harper slipper satin wedding dress with shoestring straps and low shaped back looks great on it’s own, or perhaps worn with a lace top overlay for more coverage for the ceremony or throw on a feather jacket for a winter wedding. I’m loving it teamed with the casual half up top knot.

Modern Minimalist Wedding Dress - Sylvie by Sabina Motasem

Sylvie Dress | Sabina Motasem (available at Heart Aflutter, London)

A seriously gorgeous silhouette, and a dress that I think, would pretty much suit ladies of all shapes and sizes and for all styles of wedding. With a lovely V neckline, this dress features an extra low square back to the waist, a flattering bias cut skirt with contrast waistband and the delicate button detailing on the back with puddle train. The beauty of a simple dress is that you can add accessories, shoes and even style your hair and make up in so many different ways without being limited. Anything goes.

Flexible Stylish London Wedding Venues with One Weddings

AISLE STYLE, INSPIRATION, PLANNING

If the venue search is on your ‘to do’ list and you are looking for a flexible venue in the heart of the city, One Weddings offer a number of elegant spaces to hold your ceremony and reception in the beautiful iconic buildings.  

One Events Wedding Venue London - One Marylebone

Hands up who’s back to the wedding planning after a little break with the festivities? If you’re at the start of the planning or newly engaged, then no doubt you will be searching for your wedding venue. It’s important to find somewhere that not only tick’s off most (if not all!) of your ‘wish list’ requirements but also somewhere that feels right and that has the flexibility to suit your style.

One Weddings have three beautiful London wedding venues that could well be worth considering, each offering flexibility and something slightly unique, whether you are looking for a ‘dry hire’ venue or a fully bespoke service.

One Events Wedding Venue London - One BelgraviaONE MARYLEBONE
For those perhaps choosing London as a destination wedding with many guests coming near and far it’s good to consider location so that travelling to and from the wedding is convenient for everyone (especially those who are not from London or the UK) and of course that you choose a venue with a large enough capacity.
One Marylebone and it’s flexible spaces can certainly offer good capacity and is in an incredible location (you may even recognise the building if you are a Londoner!). The venue was built in 1826 and designed by Sir John Soane (the parents will like approve of that!), and stands on its own ‘island’ just moments from Regent’s Park (think of the photo opportunities nearby!). I think your guests would be pretty impressed arriving to this!

Tropical Themed Peckham Wedding And Rime Arodaky Dress

WEDDINGS, Informal, Vintage Inspired

An unusual ‘Tropical Victorian Themed’ Wedding and Rime Arodaky wedding dress for couple Tracy and Chris at The Asylum and Horniman Museum South London.

Tropical Victorian Themed Wedding and Rime Arodaky Bride at The Asylum and Horniman Museum South London

One of our favourite spots for a ceremony in London, the atmospheric Asylum Chapel in Peckham followed by an elegant ‘tropical’ styled reception at the beautiful Horniman Museum conservatory with it’s amazing vista over London from Forest Hill, South London.

Tracy and Chris were married in July last year, and we love this couple’s personal style and how they’ve injected their own fashion into the bridal outfits. We’re big big fans of bridal separates or two pieces, and Tracy’s very figure flattering choice of Pennington skirt and Caplan top by Rime Arodaky looks seriously cool, feminine and modern. We love how she’s teamed it with a statement fashion forward headpiece by designer Luna Bea and I think we’ll be seeing much more statement headwear on 2017 brides to come!

A mention has to go to the super cool flower girl in her bespoke House of Hackney fabric outfit. How fabulous does she look and so fitting for this ‘Tropical Victorian’ themed wedding which was even translated into the reception venue from the florals to the food and even the gin!
