Looking for a bridal dress for an outdoor wedding? With the amazing spring and summer weather just around the corner, choosing the perfect wedding dress for your outdoor wedding can be easier with the help of Opportunity Bridal.
How to Choose a Wedding Dress for an Outdoor Wedding
From tropical beach ceremonies to whimsical garden receptions, outdoor weddings are a popular option for couples who want to celebrate their love al fresco. When choosing a bridal gown for your outdoor wedding, you should consider the specific venue, the weather conditions, and above all, your comfort level and personality. Your accessories, such as shoes and jewellery, should also complement the vibe of the wedding and the wedding local.
Popular Bridal Dress Styles for Outdoor Weddings
Need some inspiration for your outdoor wedding? Here are some popular dress styles that are perfect for an outdoor wedding.
Highlight any body type with a timeless A-line wedding dress. This style with a narrow top that drops to a subtle flare to resemble the letter “A” is a distinctive style for outdoor weddings. The fuller skirt flatters the hips while the fitted bodice hugs the top portion of the body.
Tea-length wedding dresses provide the best option for brides of all shapes and sizes. Falling just below the knee, this style gives vintage vibes while allowing brides to showcase their stunning footwear. This style was first introduced in the 1950s and remains a favourite among many brides.
Lace Sheath Dresses
For an outdoor wedding dress that accentuates the body, a lace sheath dress outlines the entire silhouette from the neckline to the bottom hemline. This classic but elegant look is great for petite brides that are looking for a simple but modern style.
A bride needs to be comfortable while expressing her personality on her wedding day. Choosing a short wedding dress for outdoor ceremonies is becoming more popular mainly due to brides taking charge and writing new rules for wedding attire. A short hemline can be seen from just above the knees to above the shin.
Off-the-shoulder wedding dresses are available in mermaid, A-line, and ballgown designs to appeal to any type of inner princess. This style embraces both the slender and the curvy brides and offers romance, allure, and class all together.
Floral Bridal Dresses
Outdoor weddings bring to mind beautiful flowers and sunny weather. Embrace Mother Nature with a floral bridal dress. Whether the design involves colourful flowers embroidered throughout the skirting or a lace overlay of the same tone showcasing intimate details, there is a style for every bride.
Ruffle Wedding Dresses
Dramatic romance can be seen with the classic ruffled wedding dress. Layers of tulle, lace, or silk-organza in a subtle or melodramatic fashion can be used to bring tradition to an outdoor ceremony. Form fitted silhouettes or bouncy loose styles can enhance the passion and love throughout the day.
Boho Rustic Wedding Dresses
Summer breezes bring to mind careful, whimsical, and airy styles. The bohemian wedding dress design offers the perfect look to a free-spirited bride. Garden and beaches ceremonies are enhanced with a boho rustic theme with ruffles, lace, or off-white colour choices.
Backless Bridal Gowns
Ensure the entire spotlight is on the bride with a spectacular gown with a backless style. Warm temperatures are no match for the sexy but subtle design of a wedding gown with a unique design that ties the front and the back of the dress together.
Bridal Gowns with Bodice/Corset
The classic bride meets romance with a bridal gown fitted with a corset or distinct bodice. Sitting directly on the waist, this dress elongates the figure by highlighting the waist. It takes a confident bride to wear such a stunning fitted dress.
Deep V or Sweetheart Neckline Dresses
As one of the more popular summer wedding gowns, the deep-V or sweetheart neckline design draws the eyes to the glow on the bride’s face and bodice. The sexy and alluring style helps any bride to feel like a beautiful star.
