Choosing a wedding gown is a unique, once-in-a-lifetime, highly personal experience, and only the bride herself truly knows exactly what gown will suit her own personal sense of style. While modern brides were once limited in their gown selection, today’s designers fully recognize the style needs and considerations of today’s contemporary brides, and have responded with a plethora of styles and designs ideally suited to the modern bride.


While they are appropriate for day and evening ceremonies, as well as both indoor and outdoor events, short gowns are especially well-suited to more casual weddings, or outdoor or garden themes. Their abbreviated hemlines make them a great choice for the bride who has legs to die for, and are a great way to gently defy tradition and make a style statement of your own.

Featuring a sweetheart neckline and lace overlay, Bella’s short, strapless profile is perfect for garden weddings, as well as evening or outdoor affairs. The form-fitting silhouette flatters every curve, and the lace edge is the perfect complement to the streamlined design.

Frankie is a unique design that borrows elements of menswear to create a memorable impression. The wide-belted waist divides the strapless structured bodice from the simple skirt, and the overall design is expertly wrought in satin organza and tulle materials.

Sleek, strappy Paisley features a slimming shift style with satin waist embellishment and a striking V-back. Despite the gown’s simple lines, the English net overlay and lace appliqué make this contemporary gown something extra special.

Short and flirty, Larkin takes center stage and evokes images of flamenco with its flippy skirt and strapless bodice. This tea-length gown features a fitted waist and inverted pleat neckline, and is created in a luxurious combination of silk and cotton faille.

Platinum is a runway-inspired take on the contemporary gown, with loads of details that are sure to create a lasting impression among your wedding guests and bridal party. The encrusted bodice sparkles and glimmers above the gathered bubble skirt, and the bow-tie back closures and stylized rose embellishment on the skirt add to the drama and effect of this unique gown.

Other contemporary gowns offer a Chantilly lace overskirt and a closely pleated underskirt, while the strapless bodice offers a sweetly romantic sweetheart neckline. With sparkling waist embellishments and corset closure in back, this dress is sure to turn heads.


Full-length gowns are typically considered a more traditional choice, but today’s wide range of styles make them a good choice for any bride, regardless of the type of wedding she’s planning.

For a gown that’s ripe with tradition and substance, look for a hand-draped bodice embellished with vintage-inspired silk rosebuds, full, flowing skirts and A-line silhouettes. This is ideal for romantic-inspired ceremonies for both contemporary and traditional weddings.
