Bridezillas would never go for tacky midriff-baring gowns (what’s the destination, junior high?), but if you’re going to the islands or elsewhere for your wedding, you probably don’t want layers of lace and silk weighing you down as you walk the aisle. While it’s the Bridezilla’s natural tendency to outshine everything, even the scenery, this is a time when less is more.
Witness the above example, a gorgeous strapless creation by Carmen Marc Valvo. It’ll take you from the shore to the dance floor, and the sleek shape looks spectacular whether your background is palm trees or sun and sand.
We love the crinkled look of this Nicole Miller strapless gown – it perfectly matches the more laid-back attitude that goes along with most island destinations. There’s enough of a train to add some visual drama to your walk down the aisle and give some swing to the first dance.
If you want something a little more elegant, look to this sleek Nicole Miller number. It’s ideal for a destination wedding somewhere a little unorthodox, so if your dream wedding is more Morocco than Miami, balance out the exotic surroundings with a touch of classic grace.
For romantic destinations, you need an equally romantic dress. Whether it’s a country cottage or a crumbling English church, you can match that old-time charm with this Sean Collection Long Beaded Gown.
