Finally: Simple, Beautiful Wedding Dresses!

I've probably have heard the phrase "Less is more" more than just about everyone else on this planet having gone from a degree in Architecture to being a wedding dress designer, but there, I put in writing. It's just true in so many ways. (For you non-artsies out there, the phrase was coined by Architect Mies van der Rohe, but you can call him "Mies" for short. There - banter for your next cocktail party!)

It used to be that to get a true simple yet beautiful wedding dress you had to shell out a lot of your hard earned wedding budget on a top-name designer like Vera Wang or Amsale. The good news is that is no longer the case. They are harder to find, but there are some out there! We've put together some of our simple wedding dresses that don't break the bank here for you to enjoy.

From a designers' perspective it is harder to design a simple wedding dress than a more complicated one. Informal wedding dresses rely on the purity of the lines and are much less forgiving than a dress with a lot more happening. Sometimes a simple concept can fail in the execution and end up looking like a sundress or nightgown! This is probably why they are hard to find in mainstream boutiques.
