Informal Wedding Dresses

Are you planning a simple wedding or are you a more casual girl at heart?  Maybe the all frills wedding dress is not going to suit your venue.  If you are having a beach or other outdoor wedding or a simple intimate ceremony, you may opt for a more informal wedding dress.

It seems that the bridal shops are packed full of poof and sparkle and all out glitz but there really are other options for a more casual but still very elegant styling option.

I am going to take you down a fashion runway of informal wedding dresses that will provide you with lots of inspiration for shopping for your own dress.

This first dress is a great choice, especially for a beach wedding.  The fact that it is tea length makes it a perfect option for walking in beach sand.  It still looks very elegant and the ruffled detail at the bottom adds just a bit of flair.

I love the flow of the fabric on this short dress.  It just screams luxury but the cost is so affordable.  You can purchase this dress from Destination Dress Co.  Just click on the photo to be directed to their website.

A dress like this inspiration photo could be found outside a bridal store such as in a department store or other dress shop.  It still looks beautiful for a wedding day and could even be worn again.

Here is another dress that I found for sale.  You can get to the website, J Crew, by clicking on the photo.  All of the pretty lace detail makes this dress elegant and yet the short simple design keeps it somewhat informal.

For just a little bit of poof, this option by Simply Bridal is so pretty.  The criss cross neckline also adds a lot of interest to the simple design.  Click on the photo for more details and to see what other options the store has to offer.

Have you been inspired by any of these ideas?
