This year has been one of the busiest wedding seasons in recent memory — and after years of pandemic restrictions and cancellations, it’s not difficult to see why. While many couples celebrate their wedding day with grand, opulent celebrations, others might prefer a more low-key ceremony — with a lighter budget, smaller venue, and more intimate audience. We definitely see the appeal! And contrary to popular belief, it’s actually very possible to forgo the need for a spectacle wedding without having to also give up looking fashionable — that is, if you know where to shop, of course.
Fortunately for you, we do (we are shopping experts, after all), and as a result, we know that there are many ways to be an on-trend bride while still maintaining a simple look. Whether you’re having a courthouse wedding or just a no-fuss ceremony, these modern-day looks make it easy to bow out of the traditional gown — while instead opting for more relaxed styles like jumpsuits, trouser pants, white lace pieces, muted bridal dresses, and more. And the best part: these picks can even be reworn long after your wedding is over (we love a timeless piece!). Ahead, we’ve curated a selection of the most chic wedding outfits for any unconventional bride to wear on her big day and beyond. Shop our picks ahead!
