4 Essential Elements of The Summer Wedding Dress

It’s Wedding Season! To say I LOVE wedding season is a major understatement. Receiving notes and pictures from my brides after their wedding day makes what I do overwhelmingly heartwarming.  Helping a bride find the perfect dress for her style, personality, and type of wedding is a privilege and I am overjoyed seeing so many of our brides getting married this summer. Congratulations to all of our Your Dream Brides!

With summer the most popular time to get married, I often hear from brides that they want a summer or beach wedding dress, yet don’t have a specific style in mind. At your Dream Bridal, I often find that finding the right element in a dress is what gives it that perfect summer or beachy tone. Here I have outlined 4 elements that make up the perfect casual yet sophisticated look for the modern summer bride.

Soft, Flowy Skirts

Soft, flowy skirts give a wedding dress a sense of calm and ease, perfect for an outdoor wedding. This element can incorporate multiple layers and/or different fabrics. Many designers at Your Dream Bridal include soft flowing skirts, like from Truvelle.

Low, Open Backs

Add an element of allure to your summer wedding dress with a low, open back. For the hotter months, this feature in a wedding dress is not only gorgeous and sexy, but it’s also very appropriate for the season. There are so many options for low backs including totally bare, corset-like ribbons or intricate straps. These are just a few of the low, open back options at Your Dream Bridal.


This Martina Liana gown is an amazing example of the illusion effect for a beachy, summer wedding dress. Whether with lace, tulle, chiffon or thin silk, a dress with translucent fabric is a perfect match for a summer bride looking for that lightness in her gown.

Unstructured Silhouettes

Above all else, a perfect summer wedding dress exudes confidence and a sense of self with comfort and ease of movement in mind. In a dress with an unstructured silhouette, a bride showcases her casual, yet strong demeanor and her romantic side. Showcase that unstructured silhouette perfectly, quintessential for a summer or beach wedding.
