The crewneck and abbreviated dress length may be on the casual side, but those bell sleeves are giving us formal drama. Cut from a hyper-flattering scuba material, this is a winner for sleek, no-fuss brides.

5. Ruched Stretch-Jersey Gown by Halston

Did we just discover the most comfortable wedding dress of all time? Beautifully constructed from matte stretch jersey, this dress is certainly figure-clinging, but fear not, the ruching detail in the front and back is every woman’s fail-safe. Plus, that plunging neckline isn’t so deep that you won’t find an adequate (and supportive) bra to wear underneath.

8. Drape Neck Long Sleeve Lace Wedding Dress By Tadashi Shoji

From the draped neckline edged in eyelash lace to the floor-pooling train, this frothy gown is designed for the ethereal bride. We highly recommend pairing it with a flower crown.  (Psst: the dress runs large, so order a size down.)

This curve-hugging crepe gown with long sleeves and a bateau neck is giving us Meghan Markle vibes. We’re not so sure the queen would approve of that plunging back. (We certainly do, though.)

Buy it ($895)

Available in sizes 0 to 4

10. Ruffled Sequin-Embellished Tulle Gown by Needle & Thread

The fitted bodice and tiered skirt of this Needle & Thread design will float beautifully down the aisle. But our favorite part has to be the open back. Wear a veil during the ceremony and make your big reveal at the reception. Who doesn’t love a dress change that doesn’t require actually changing?

11. Wtoo by Watters Summer Gown

This all-lace long-sleeve wedding dress from Watters manages to be anything but stuffy. In fact, it’s decidedly modern—and rather sexy—with a form-fitting column silhouette and an intricate geometric motif. The back accent with tiny pearl buttons is worth the click-through.

12. Daughters of Simone Danni Gown

A boho gown that gives ’70s macramé a major makeover, this look has it all: a bold open back, a plunging neckline and a dramatic train. Plus, the allover lace will look oh so romantic in your wedding album. (Just don’t forget to request at least a few black-and-white shots!)

13. Lace-Trimmed Leaf-Crepe Gown by Alexander McQueen

What bride wouldn’t be compelled by free delivery and return on Alexander McQueen? But this long-sleeve ivory gown has a lot more going on besides the generous shipping policy—like the sheer floral lace on the sleeves and back (you gotta see this dress from all angles) and the soft, fluid fabric that also has just the right amount of structure.

14. Viola Bubble-Appliqué Silk-Organza Gown by Roksanda

We mean…have you ever? The balloon sleeves, the sweeping silhouette and the appliqué bubbles are, in a word, enchanting. Sure, this dress is pricy, but it’s also on major sale.

15. One-Shoulder Embellished Tulle-Paneled Crepe Gown by Burnett New York

Who said both sleeves had to look the same? The delicate tulle sleeve will catch light with its sequins and beads as you move throughout the night. And that thigh-grazing slit will definitely catch your new husband’s attention.

16. Off-the-Shoulder Pearl-Embellished Silk-Crepe Gown by Danielle Frankel

This up-and-coming bridal designer had us at “No bra is required due to the internal structure.” But the baroque pearl buttons that trace the off-the-shoulder neckline and front slit don’t hurt either. Pair this unique gown with Frankel’s pearl drop earrings, which are equally to die for.

The ideal gown for when you want everything but you don’t want to look extra. This design balances every feature just right—the mermaid silhouette, thread-embroidered floral details and illusion crystal tulle sleeves. Plus, the V neck and slender waist are really flattering.
