The new minimalist wedding dress: 11 timelessly elegant bridal looks
The New Minimalist Wedding Dress
Thanks to royal brides like Meghan Duchess of Sussex and Princess Eugenie, and the recently wed Fala Chen, there’s been a resurgence of the pared-back wedding dress. And yet, it is not minimalist as we know it (think contemporary edgy styles) but a return to classic elegance (we’re seeing a revival of duchesse satin dresses!).
The new minimalist evokes romance and a sense of timelessness, without excessive frills – it’s a dress that transcends the test of time. Here are 12 wedding dress ideas from celebrities and designer collections to get you inspired.
The clean-cut silhouette, created by Peter Pilotto and Christopher de Vos of British based label Peter Pilotto, bore subtle motifs that are meaningful to Princess Eugenie – Thistle for Scotland, The Shamrock for Ireland, The York Rose for England and The Ivy representing the couple’s home. It also had folded neckline and a low back specially created to show her scar, from a surgery at age 12 to correct scoliosis – something she has been helping to raise awareness of over the years.
