Blushing brides wearing conservative and traditional gowns as they walk down the aisle are no longer the picture today. Instead, we have brides who are bold and glamorous and take that extra step to let go of the vintage wedding gowns. The options for gorgeous brides have multiplied with the arrival of some really creative and breathtaking designs among wedding dresses. Here are ten amazing wedding gowns for the modern bride with a dash of glamor.
One-Shoulder Basket-Weave Organza Gown
Here is an ethereal and airy gown which is in fact an A-line skirt that has been softly gathered. The waist has been asymmetrically dropped with a light basket-weave organza which has in turn, been bubbled into the hem. The breathtaking motion in the lower part of the dress and the dramatic way in which it sets off the bodice, brings a delicate fluidity in the gown. The laser-cut petals added on the one-shouldered bodice adds delicacy and daintiness to the princess that dons the gown. Basket-weave organza with its textured, matte-like finish has been utilized for it.
Organza and Tulle High-Low Beaded-flowers Gown
This gown is sure to take anyone’s breath away and sweep the groom off his feet with its awesome pick-ups. Available in sizes from 0-14, the gown is sure to suit brides with any height. The sweep train and the beaded detail at the dropped waist will ensure that this will be the first and last bridal gown you would want to try on! The ivory or white colors that it is available in seem to be great turn-ons and the organza that has been used to create it will make you proud and delightful as you walk down the aisle.
A-Line satin gown with empire bodice
A modern and fresh take on the classic empire silhouette, this gown is elegant and flattering to say the least. A pleated, slimming surplice bodice complements the feminine and beautiful sweetheart neckline. The waistline has been ruched with pleats from the tight decorative satin gathers and an over-sized flower has been placed romantically. The gown has a full length skirt and, surprise, features pockets. Available in ivory and white, the gown has a well-hidden back zipper completing it.
Floral-Print Taffeta Ball Gown
Colored in blush, the taffeta that makes this dress has been further enhanced with the warp printing of the color. That drying technique used in the French couture houses has achieved such a dainty and beautiful effect that it is there for all to see. The exquisite gradation of color, the soft line patterns along with the swagged skirt, draped bodice and and the side peplum add magnificence and royalty to the gown. The waist has been ruched to a dramatic effect and the exposed tulle train is definitely an add-on feature that any bride would love. The gown is available in white and pink.
Organza Fit and Flare Gown
When it comes to wedding gowns, those that feature a strong sculptural and architectural quality never fail to amaze and enthrall. The hand-cut flanges made of tissue organza literally cascade throughout the skirt giving it a strong and vibrant personality. The flanges also lend an organic appeal to the whole gown which has an asymmetrically-draped bodice to provide a streamlined and balanced contrast. The embellished sash heightens the drama about the dress and it can be customized for variety and fit. The cathedral-train has been fully line and the hidden zipper at the back seals the dress.
Alfred Angelo bridal gown
Another stunner of a bridal gown that is sure to blow you away! Made completely from silk satin, the gown has been generously embroidered on the bodice. The pearl beading that it has been finished with is exquisite and beautiful – little wonder that the gown is available in pearl and white. The embroidered lace has been hand-crafted to perfection and the sequins trumpet skirt flows elegantly with the chapel train. Available for customization, the gown will surely blend perfection and beauty for the big day.
Handmade-beads satin chapel-train bridal dresses
For those that are of the opinion that a sweetheart neckline is a somewhat strong statement to make on the wedding day, this gown with a gentler tube type neck should be the perfect replacement. A swept hemline and a princess silhouette will be the perfect recipe of a royal wedding look for the bride. The gown has been embellished with handmade beads which sit prettily on the silk satin. The gown sort of drapes neatly around the waist though it is not ruched.
A-line off-the-shoulder chapel-train caped Gown
Are you in search of variety in colors? This off-the-shoulder wedding dress is available in more than 20 colors which include some ravishing ones like regency, champagne, burgundy, fuchsia, lavender and royal blue. With the A-line, princess silhouette, the gown offers a chapel train hemline with grand embroidery. The split front and the appliques provide regal embellishments. The capped sleeves and a hidden back zipper complete the gown that has been created entirely from satin.
Mermaid gown with pleated-skirt and bubble-hem
With its perfectly-fitted top and the flair below the knees, this mermaid gown or trumpet dress has a pleated skirt with a wondrously bubbled hem. The pleats are made of taffeta and the strapless bodice has been fabulously accented with an asymmetrical draping. The hidden zipper and the covered elegant buttons close the back while the chapel train hemline has been fully lined. A horsehair sash that has been made from flexible woven material to create voluminous bows can be added as an extra at the waist.
Strapless Mermaid Gown with Oversized Bow Detail
Like always, the best is always reserved for the last. This breathtaking beauty of a wedding gown has been created with a magical sweetheart neckline and bodice. It is extremely feminine and flattering for the eye to behold. The V-neck adds to its alluring glam and the ruched waist has been grandly accented with a charming and intricately made, shiny charmeuse bow. A sparkling brooch that is removable sits on the bow and the faille fabrication of the skirt ensures a slimming, hourglass figure. Made from imported polyester, the dress is available only in the ivory shade.
