For Stylish Brides: 20 Modern Wedding Dresses


Once upon a time, there was a bride that was looking for the perfect wedding dress, and she had two choices. A dress with an upside-down bell silhouette in the color white or a dress that had the exact same shape but was off-white. That sounds like a boring story, right? Well, that was the life of bride’s years ago. These days, there are so much more creative and fashion-forward wedding dresses, so the hunting of the perfect dress can take months! Here we are to help you to find the right dress with our list of 20 most beautiful modern wedding dresses.

20 Modern Wedding Dresses


3D Flower

Flower is always one of the first things you think about when talking about weddings. It brings out a romantic and simplicity to the look. In addition, this trend is on every bridal runaway. You can make the 3D flower effect with organza, like this gold rose gorgeous fit-and-flare dress from Watters Brides.


Blue Dress

Colorful dresses are such a big trend that we are in love with it. Of course you won’t use a strong or dark color, you got to go with the soft ones, and that is why blue is so welcome. It is kind of a modern angelic look and it’s stunning. Tell me that you do not think that this strapless blue wedding gown by David Tutera for Mon Cheri is exquisite. You cannot, right? 


Boho Style

This Maggie Sottero design is the perfect dress for a boho chic ceremony. The lace sheath gown with the crown of flowers brings out romance, simplicity and the free spirit of the bride.



This Maggie Sottero stunning tulle sheath dress is everything. It’s fancy, romantic, angelic, gorgeous and when combined with the detachable tulle cape, perfect. Capes are definitely one of the hottest trends of modern wedding dresses.



It is true what they say, the street style reflects on the runaway looks, and the two-piece wedding gown is the proof of it. Everywhere you look you find a girl with cropped dress or jeans, and why not wear a cropped dress on your wedding day? This exquisite chiffon and tulle two-piece outfit by Maggie Sottero is one of my favorites!


Detachable Skirt

This is a very helpful idea. The detachable skirt gives you a 2 in 1 wedding gown. You have the long and beautiful dress for the ceremony and then you take off the detachable skirt and surprise, you have the cute short dress for the party. Great idea, right? And this Alfred Angelo’s design is perfect for a vintage romantic look.


Detachable Train

The same goes for the detachable train, you have two looks in one. Like this David Tutera for Mon Cheri dress, it’s an exquisite A-line with sweetheart neckline dress that was pretty enough, but you can add a little bit of drama to the look with this gorgeous detachable tulle and organza train.


Many Layers!

These 20 modern wedding dresses have a lot of different silhouettes and ornaments, and this is the one with the most loved trend, layers! A wedding dress is not a wedding dress if it does not make jaws drop. And when you have a dress as beautiful as this Morilee tulle ball gown with many layers, you can be sure that everyone will love it.


Flower Print

If you love flowers and want to have it on your wedding gown but do not liked the 3D flowers trend you can go with this one. With flower prints, your wedding gown will be extremely modern and bold. Look at this stunning Maggie Sottero design!



There is nothing sexier than showing a little bit of skin, and the illusion trend is all about that. And Laine Berry designed for Mon Cheri this gorgeous all illusion dress. Really fancy.



It is not a 2 in 1 look but it definitely helps you to accessorize on your wedding day. I mean, isn’t better to have your jewelry already on the dress? A beautiful example is this Alfred Angelo’s lace gown with off-the-shoulder pearl straps. Gorgeous, right?



Colorful wedding dress is a really hot trend thus has to be on our list of modern wedding dresses. This BHLDN watercolor effect gown is stunning!



Whenever I think about metallic wedding dress I remember Serena Vanderwoodsen’s (from Gossip Girl) wedding dress. But that is too much and only a runaway dress, the real metallic trend can be seen in this metallic applique illusion dress. See how fancy and expensive this gown from Camille La Vie looks.


Pink Dress

This seems like something that a little girl would say, “I want to get married in a pink wedding dress”, but actually many brides are adopting this style. Even many celebrities love it. And this pink tulle, long sleeve wedding gown that you can find on Etsy has everything you dreamed about.


Pockets on the Dress!

Pockets are so useful and every girl loves a dress with pockets, it is so fashionable and cute. This mikado princess-style wedding dress from PRONOIVAS is the most modern and gorgeous thing ever.


Organza Draped Train

This is my favorite one from this 20 modern wedding dresses list for sure! Just look at this venice organza fit and flare wedding gown from Maggie Sottero designs and you'll know it’s the most beautiful thing you ever seen.


Short Dress

Who says that a stunning wedding dress need to be a very long one? That is in the past; you can wear a short simple white dress like this one from PRONOIVAS and walk the aisle flawless.


Striking Ruffled

On BHLDN you can also find this breathtaking crepe gown with a striking ruffled back that can be the showstopper element of your wedding look.


Tea Length

We love when classic and tradition become a modern trend, and tea length wedding dresses are definitely one of it. This BHLDN dress is lovely, right?



Remember when Cindy Crawford got married in a beautiful small slipdress and everyone said it looked like a nightgown? Well, she was only being fashion-forward as usual. The slipdress trend is all over the streets and is coming to the bridal runaways too. This can be the biggest trend of modern wedding dresses. You may think it is too simple but look at this BHLDN dress and tell me you don’t think is gorgeous.
