Spring Into June With Simple Bridal Gowns

By  | 

Meghan Markle’s Givenchy wedding gown left people divided: simply beautiful or too simple. If you have begun the search for the perfect wedding dress and you are like most soon-to-be brides, you are bombarded with over-the-top wedding dress trends on Pinterest and Instagram, making it difficult to select style.

One important thing to consider when choosing a wedding gown, is that it is timeless. When you look back on photos taken from your wedding day, you should feel proud of the decision you made. Most importantly, your gown should make you feel confident and comfortable.

There are hundreds of dresses that incorporate embellishments, such as lace, embroidery, beading, pearls, and even glitter. For brides, like Markle, who prefer simplicity over glamour, British bridal designer Caroline Castigliano, who has worked with British royalty, has the perfect style for you to spark inspiration.

Take a look at some of her fabulous designs and who knows, maybe you’ll get lucky.


This silhouette has a fitted bodice at the waist and flows outward in the shape of an "A". It's the perfect dress for brides who want either a modified ball gown or want to draw attention away from the shape of their body.


Trumpet (Fit and Flare)

This style is between a mermaid and an a-line silhouette. The structure is fitted through the body and flares mid-thigh and is flattering on multiple body types, especially hourglass or petite figures.


Modified A-Line

Like a traditional a-line, it accentuates the waist line and flares at the skirt. However it's tailored more to the shape of the body while still maintaining its "A" shape. 


A great choice for women with physically fit bodies and petite brides who want something beautiful that doesn't overwhelm them. Its slip style and narrow shape is also one that shows every curve.
