16 Simple & Glamorous Wedding Dress Ideas For Downsized Weddings

Updated: Jan 5

Things have certainly looked different as of late, we've had to make adjustments across the board. In my own business I've noticed that brides have begun requesting more simple dresses for more simple weddings. Some have even opted for a mini wedding look, while they wait for their "bigger day". I thought I'd give some suggestions for beautiful alternatives to the big white gown. Simple yet elegant designs, that still stand out and say "I do".
