One of the hottest (and we mean hottest) trends in wedding dresses is the dare-to-bare look. While the look is certainly sexy, it may not always be Grandma-appropriate. Fortunately, Morilee by Madeline Gardner’s new collection features gowns that mix classic silhouettes and details with just the right amount of sexiness. So if you’re interested in showing some skin, check out these Morilee by Madeline Gardner looks. We think your Grandma will approve!

Pair crop-tops with full skirts

Crop-top wedding dresses are all the rage right now. We love how this look includes a full skirt to keep things feeling elegant and classic.

Illusion details

Sheer illusion detail is a great way to show skin without taking things overboard. This look—another crop-top, by the way—uses the illusion detail at the neckline for a sophisticated touch.

Show off those shoulders

Off-the-shoulder necklines were among the trendiest styles at this season’s New York Bridal Fashion Week. We love the regal, yet slightly boho-chic vibe of this look—it’s sexy but still totally princess-worthy and sweet.

Halter necklines

Another way to show off toned upper arms and shoulders—the modern halter neckline! This style is all the rage this season, and is particularly appropriate for summer weddings.

The deep v-neck

We all know the power of the low v-neckline (just ask J.Lo!). This gown in particular offers unique crystal embroidery on the sultry bodice, but keeps things super clean and simple on crepe skirt.

Sheer lace bodice

The peekaboo lace bodice of this gown shows just a bit of the midriff, but the gown’s romantic silhouette keeps things feminine and romantic.

Strategic beading

For a totally glam look, a sheer bodice covered with crystal embroidery is spot-on. The pairing of this super-sexy top with the classic tulle bottom gives the gown an extra romantic feel.

The sweetheart neckline

It’s pretty obvious why so many brides love sweetheart necklines—they look great on so many different body types and are pretty and sexy at once. This sweetheart neckline gown is particular romantic—we particularly adore the vintage-style godet pleats on the skirt.

The tip-of-the-shoulder look

This style combines several sexy details—the off-the-shoulder neckline, the illusion details, the sheer bodice—but still manages to stay feminine and sophisticated. How? It’s all about that ultra-feminine lace!

The form-fitting silhouette

Okay, fine, you’re not showing too much skin with this look—but a body-hugging silhouette like this one is certainly sexy. We also can’t resist a gown with sleeves, and these sheer lace ones are absolutely divine.
