‘Casual’ Wedding Gowns


Modern weddings take place in a huge variety of venues, meaning our Collections have evolved over the years to provide designs that complement your day. If you’re getting married outdoors, in a registry office or a quirky venue that means a lot to you, perhaps a more casual wedding dress would fit your style. A few favourite features we like for a laid back approach to bridal wear are sheath silhouettes, plain dresses (no lace or beading) and keyhole backs or backless gowns.


Sheath Silhouettes – These are dresses that don’t hug your hips, but also don’t create a wider shape. The simply fall to the ground, gently skimming your body. They’re sleek, chic and super comfortable.


Plain Gowns – We adore the ‘clean’ look of a simple gown that has no intricate details, but using structure and fabric to create flattering and interesting designs.


Keyhole Backs/Backless Gowns – We love the fun, summer vibe these styles have and think it’s perfect for a casual wedding.


Here are some of our favourites:
