Ten-foot-long trains, complicated bustles and corsets that virtually remove a row of ribs—heavy is the head that wears the veil. But if your main focus is feeling relaxed on your wedding day (aka getting down on the dance floor without ripping your gown), have no fear: There are plenty of dresses just as stunning as they are comfortable. Here are nine that caught our eye.
9 Gorgeous Wedding Dresses That Honestly Look Really Comfortable
Silk Crepe Wrap Dress
Not a zipper, bustle or button in sight to fret over on this luxe piece made with Alençon lace and an elegant braided belt.
Racerback With Split-back Bodice
The minimalist bride will appreciate not having to lug 100 extra pounds of fabric around the dance floor. The simple silhouette and column skirt are crazy flattering and would look fab with some flashy accessories.
Illusion Bodice With Hand-beading
This dress is truly magic—mostly because you get the exposed décolleté vibe without having to keep adjusting it the entire night. Romantic and ethereal, those soft flutter sleeves have our heart forever.
Cap-sleeved + Key-hole Back
Sophisticated AF with lace-trimmed cutouts that are subtly sexy, but not in a way that will give your grandma a heart attack.
Cropped Long-sleeve Lace Top And High-waisted Skirt
Because you want to dance your butt off and wear your favorite supportive bra.
Gathered Silk Tulle & Lace
For the boho goddess who actually wants to sit down in her dress (and eat a slice of cake, too).
Deep V Front And Back With Soft Pleating
The best parts here are hidden: sewn-in soft bra cups and pockets. Dreams do come true.
Off-the-shoulder Fringe Fest
The bodice means you can wear a strapless bra. The slit means you can actually dance. And the fringe will take your moves to the next level.
Rue De Seine
Tea Length And Textured Lace
The trifecta of comfort: You can wear a bra, do the splits and go to the bathroom on your own. We’ll take it.
