Whether you’re looking for a simple, romantic gown or a dramatic statement dress for your wedding day, your venue can also have an impact on the style of your wedding dress. Outdoor weddings in the warmer months also give brides more freedom to play with designs such as cutouts and illusion backs. Here are a few of our favorite outdoor wedding dresses to inspire you for your special day.
An outdoor wedding is the perfect time to show off a breathtaking train against the gorgeous backdrop of your venue. This beautiful dress is trimmed with delicate lace to draw your eyes directly to the train. We recommend keeping the silhouette and bodice simple when opting for a dramatic train so the dress has a clear center of focus.
With the hotter weather you’ll likely encounter with an outdoor wedding, it’s best to opt for a lighter fabric such as chiffon, organza, lace, or tulle. Not only will it help keep you cooler throughout your outdoor reception, you can also be much more comfortable with breathable fabrics. You can also layer your lighter fabrics to create a full skirt with lots of volume.
Elegant cutouts are one of our favorite details for an outdoor wedding dress. Tatum opted for a beautiful plunging neckline with an embroidered bodice, along with dainty cutouts around the waistline. These are also great for the warmer months such as a spring or summer wedding. The rest of the gown remains simple with a tulle skirt and trailing veil.
For brides looking for a more dramatic wedding dress, we love Angela’s gown with a cascading train and illusion back. While these are both statement trends, they work together beautifully on this dress. We recommend opting for a romantic updo when wearing an illusion back gown to better show off the design. It will also allow your dress to shine in the spotlight without hiding under your hairstyle.
