Modern Wedding Dresses: 7 of Our Favourite Gowns for Modern Brides


Barbie from Mori Lee is a chic Stretch Crêpe gown, with bedazzled crystal, pearl, and opalescent beading along the strapless neckline. The contoured bodice shows off your figure in the fit to flare silhouette and crystal buttons cascade down the back all the way to the clean, chapel length train.


In smooth peau de soie with curved seams, the Voyage by Mori Lee Teagan wedding dress exudes classic style with contemporary charm. The perfect blend of romance, sex appeal, and sophistication, this bridal gown features off the shoulder cap sleeves, a V-neckline with a sheer net inset for a touch of added coverage, and a V-back finished with a row of covered buttons. Princess seams help to shape the bodice, while vertical seams and pleats create the beautiful shape of the fit and flare skirt.


Look effortlessly refined in Brigitte from Justin Alexander, a modern stretch Mikado fit and flare gown. With long sleeves, a deep V-neck and open V-back. Paired with a cummerbund that flatters the waistline to leave you feeling confident.


Josie Lane from Maggie Sottero is a striking Mikado fit-and-flare wedding dress featuring a sweetheart neckline with off-the-shoulder sleeves and covered buttons trailing down the train. Finished with covered buttons over a zip-up back.


A sleek, clean, and sexy look, the Yvaine gown by Élysée features a sophisticated halter neckline with plunging illusion panel, signature ÉLYSÉE body-contouring seaming, a stunning keyhole back detail, and soft crêpe skirt.


Striking and timeless, Nelia from Blue by Enzoani is a modern minimalist's dream. Sure to impress and awe in the most understated way, Nelia is made of thoughtfully seamed crêpe panels to provide the most flattering, soft-but-structured silhouette. The clean V-neckline is trimmed with the most delicate beading for a subtle pop of sparkle and dimension. Finally, a detachable, light chiffon cape is available for you to make the most gorgeous statement, balancing out this structured masterpiece with all the drama and dreaminess.


Seraphine by ÉLYSÉE is pure contemporary minimalism and glamour, perfected. Sleek Mikado provides structure without forsaking comfort, creating a look that is both body-contouring and figure-flattering. A modern sculpted neckline and draped Mikado bodice, low V-back, and thoughtful seam placement leading down to the flared skirt ensures an effortlessly elegant look. Covered buttons trailing down to the hem of the gown add a sweet, detailed finishing touch.
