1. Accentuate your best feature

Vera Wang is known for clean silhouettes and elegant style. This Japanese bride stuns in a minimalist white wedding gown with a V-cut neckline that draws attention to her elegant décolletage. The best thing about this dress is that it frames the bride's body beautifully, making her (and not her dress) the true centre of attention. 

2. Add a statement accessory

A simple slip dress looks beautiful on anyone, especially on a bride that wants to keep things classic. For added flair, add a statement shawl or accessory to truly level up your bridal look. Designer Patty Ang adds a feathery shoulder piece to add depth and dimension to an otherwise minimalist dress.

4. Consider adding floral details

Alongside diamonds, flowers are a girl's best friend. Floral details add depth and dimension unto any wedding dress—consider this when opting for a minimalist look. It's a great option for summertime brides, or for women who want to add a touch of femininity to their gown.

5. Play around with necklines

Choosing the perfect neckline for your wedding gown is a fun exercise in style. For example, a scoop neck wedding gown is a chic option for brides looking to keep things simple. It frames the body beautifully and allows you to accessorise very easily. It's also much more unique than the standard sweetheart neckline that many brides are known to flock to. 


6. Go for distinct silhouettes

Just because a bride opts for a minimalist gown doesn't mean the dress itself has to be forgettable. Consider designing your look with clean lines and distinct silhouettes make for a memorable wedding dress.
