Wessex Gown by Watters
A barely-there nude top could be risque, but topped with intricate floral beading and a flowing, feminine skirt, this dress is a romantic dream.
Bow Drape Ballgown by Viktor&Rolf
There's nothing better than a well-draped, classic ballgown, and this one keeps things fresh with a 50's style bow and (the best) pockets.
Soleil SS18 by Leanne Marshall
If you're looking for a bit of color, this soft painterly wash fits the bill, and there is a unique juxtaposition between the artistry of the skirt and the sporty racerback top.
Paolo Gown by Rosa Clara Couture
Gowns with sleeves can easily become matronly, but the low back and flash of leg lightens up the look, and the beaded bow detail screams Tiffany's glam.
Glazer Gown by Hayley Paige
This gown proves you can look sexy without showing a lot of skin. The straps on this gown provide great support and coverage, the bandage-style bodice is incredibly flattering, and the soft layers of the skirt keep the silhouette balanced without looking too harsh.
Loretta Gown by Whispers & Echoes for BHLDN
I'm thrilled that 90's simplicity is coming back to bridal, and I love the combination of modern straps with the classic button-back. 20 years from now this gown will still be a stunner.
Appliqued A-Line Dress and Topper by Oleg Cassini for David's Bridal
This dress (also available in plus sizes!) is as traditional as it gets, but the antique color helps the lace details pop. The topper is removable to reveal a chic strapless gown for the reception.
Sia Gown by Amsale
This gown is perfect for a bohemian bride who doesn't want to look too much like a flower child. The shape is effortless and is enhanced by simple details.
3800 Gown and 3814 Gown by Lazaro
These two gowns, while very different in shape and vibe, have the most exquisite beadwork without feeling fussy or overdone. They are both a perfect blend of traditional meeting modern.
