Beneath every wedding is an epic love story and a romantic wedding matches & highlights the romance of the couple and the affair. Not to be miscategorized as generic, a romantic wedding and thus wedding dress, leans into the sweet and feminine. Oft described as soft and delicate, romantic wedding dresses don’t shy away from the girly. Ruffles, sparkle, embellishments, cascading lace, voluminous skirts, flowing silks, florals & bows are common treatments and features of romantic wedding dresses. Brides can dial up or down the romance by the silhouette they choose, with fitted gowns and plunging necklines skewing towards the sensual romantic and with fuller skirts and flowing fabrics reading more demure. Romantic wedding dresses go great with bordeaux, blush and ivory/green color palettes and can fit just as well with an outdoor vineyard affair as with a black tie one. Hair is often tousled in romantic curls or pulled into a lose halfup/half down coif.
Some designers that do Romantic Wedding Dresses best (and we love!) are Valentino, Berta, Mira Zwillinger, Oscar de la Renta, Monique Lhuillier, Rue de Seine, Rime Arodaky, Liz Martinez, BHLDN, Elie Saab, Christian Dior, Chanel, Allure and Naeem Khan.
