FLOWY WEDDING DRESSES: OUR TOP TEN DESIGNERS
BY ‘THE OUTLOVERS’, YOUR ELOPEMENT AND SMALL WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHY TEAM
1 March 2021
Looking for a flowy wedding dress? OUR SECRETS ON WHERE TO FIND THOSE PERFECT, SWOOSHING GOWNS.
You’ve all seen the pics: those gorgeous images with the bride’s dress billowing beautifully in the breeze. It’s just DREAMY.
We LOVE seeing a carefree bride embracing the elements as she shares her vows on a rugged cliff overlooking the wild ocean, or on a mountaintop with the wind whipping around her.
But where the heck did she find that perfect flowy wedding dress?!
The good news is that more and more wedding dress designers are opting for light, flowing fabrics to create stunning yet comfortable dresses, rather than the traditional rigid, hard to breath in concoctions of the past.
Ethereal, romantic and effortlessly beautiful, these dresses are perfect for the bride who likes to wander barefoot in the sand, or dance freely under the stars!
We’ve done a ton of research and here are our Top Ten – in no particular order – designers/stores to consider if you want to find a dreamy, flowy wedding dress for your big day.
We’ve tried to allow for a range of budgets and styles. Recent prices are listed BELOW each dress and may fluctuate.
** We update this list regularly but it may be that the exact dress we’ve suggested is no longer available. STILL CHECK OUT THE DESIGNER! We’ve deliberately chosen designers who specialize in flowy wedding dresses so you’ll have many more options to choose from. **
