17 Chic, Minimal Wedding Dresses for Modern Brides

After months of speculation, Meghan Markle’s wedding dress was finally revealed at the weekend and she looked beautiful. Opting to keep things simple, she donned an elegant bateau neck three-quarter sleeve dress by British designer Clare Waight Keller for Givenchy that channeled “timeless minimal elegance”.

Sleeves have always been a popular bridal choice, particularly for autumn/winter brides and chic, modern wedding dresses were big news for 2018/2019 before this so it’s fair to say we’re going to be seeing even more beautiful designs based on the new Duchess of Sussex’s look in the coming months! If you’re looking to give your own bridal look a modern and elegant twist, we’ve rounded up some stunning pared back, contemporary finds for brides that want to keep things simple for their big moment.
