Made popular in the ‘90s, minimalist wedding dresses are making a huge comeback in the bridal fashion world. These simple-yet-sexy dress styles are a stark contrast from the heavy embellishments we've seen of late. Instead, minimalist wedding dresses feature few, if any, embellishments and are reminiscent of popular ‘90s fashion looks—think Gwyneth Paltrow on the red carpet or Jennifer Aniston during her Friends era. So, if you’re looking for a wedding dress that doesn’t feature over-the-top details and really highlights an impeccable fit, then you should check out these clean and understated dress styles.
These minimalist wedding dresses with minor tailoring and minimal embellishments are giving us major ‘90s’ nostalgia.
Brides hoping to show off their curves in a subtle way will definitely slay in this high-neck figure hugging wedding dress.
