Little White Dresses for a Contemporary Wedding Ceremony

Standard

Instead of the flowing long white gown, many modern brides are opting to wear something that fits their personality a little more. The LWD, or the little white dress, has become a great option for all brides, especially those who are saying their vows in a casual or outdoor environment. For the contemporary wedding ceremony, a little white dress is a great way for the bride to express her own personality while reassuring her own long-lasting comfort on the big day.
Brides who wish to still have the feel of a longer gown without getting tangled in long layers will love the Spaghetti Strap Chiffon Gown with High-Low Hem. This gown has the elegant feel of a full length dress, but only falls to just-below-the-knee. The back of the dress has a loose flowing hemline that reaches the ground. Subtle details make up the rest of the gown. The bodice of the gown has a modest sweetheart neckline and is embroidered with a swirling beaded design that repeats. The gown is made from soft jersey and chiffon for both comfort and beauty.
A glamorous gown that features the high-low hem is the Strapless Faille with Sweetheart Draped Bodice, which proves that this style of gown can be just as elegant and regal as traditional gowns. Made from faille, which is a heavier-weight, yet softly structured fabric, this gown screams sophistication. The sweetheart bodice features glamorous draping, and a large 3D flower sits at the waist where the draping meets. This gown could pair well with either a formal ballroom event or a trendy outdoor winery wedding, proving itself very versatile.
The Chiffon White Dress with Ruffles is a feminine and sweet strapless dress with delicate features. This above the knee chiffon dress features a ruffled top with a floral and ribbon accent. The bodice and waist are ruched to create a slimming and figure flattering shape. A peek-a-boo ruffled hem adds to the delicate styling of the dress. Classic lines are updated by modern trimmings for a dress that is certain to flatter and impress.
Even formal gowns can be little white dresses. One formal option is the Short Shantung Dress, made from the comfortable wild silk fabric. This strapless gown has an asymmetric pleated neckline and a cinched waist that cascades down into a ruffle that travels the course of the dress. This form fitting number is elegant enough to be worn at even the most formal of events.
A glamorous and chic option for spring or summertime weddings is the Soft Chiffon Dress with Halter Neckline. This flowing chiffon dress showcases a high halter neckline, which is sophisticated and modest enough for any formal affair. The neckline is slightly ruched before meeting a ruffle design, which flows down the side of the neckline and along the tieback of the halter. The same dramatic effect of a traditional train is gained by the ruffle detailing that flows down the back!
Even if you are looking for a long sleeve gown, there are still options in the little white dress category that fits that description. Consider the Long Sleeve Shift Dress. This soft jersey dress falls just above the knee for a sophisticated image. The ends of long sleeves as well as the hem of the knee length skirt are trimmed with a beaded design. The back of the dress features a dramatic cowl neck detailing for just as memorable of an exit as your entrance.
Tea-length dresses are a popular option for more formal outdoor weddings. They evoke a feeling synonymous with casual elegance, and are often worn for daytime garden weddings. Typically, these have A-line silhouettes, which are universally flattering on all figures. The Satin Tea-Length Gown with Box Pleats is a gown that can be either dressed up or dressed down with ease. The strapless dress features a strapless draped bodice with a sparkly brooch at the waist to help create a slimming look – attention is attracted to the slimmest part of you! The tea length skirt flares out and features box pleats that add subtle sophistication to the dress.
Little white dresses are increasing in popularity for a variety of reasons. Unlike the traditional bridal gown, a little white dress can be worn again for other special occasions. A bride who wants to wear her wedding dress time and time again also has the option of dying her little white dress after the wedding. These shorter dresses are easier to dance or party the night away, and are a great option as a second dress for a reception as well. Find the little white dress for your ceremony now!
