A Guide For: The Minimalist Bride with Maximum Style


Every bride has a style all her own! For our colorful princess brides, we have the incomparable Hayley Paige who created ballgowns that exude playfulness. But for other brides, and their bridal style might be more subdued, more nuanced. They want a dress that is equal parts beautiful and comfortable; a dress that ultimately let’s them feel like themselves. We love a good clean bridal look at Anna Be, and we’ve rounded up a few suggestions for those minimal brides who want maximum style. Book your appointment with an Anna Be stylist and see all the gorgeous options we have in store for the ultimate minimalist bride.

The Less is More Bride: Lewis by Alexandra Grecco

There’s nothing simple about this 100% silk gown from Alexandra Grecco. She’s minimal, yes, but her deep V neckline and low back, delicate straps, and flowy skirt and extended train make a statement all their own. It’s the perfect dress for a bride who wants to keep it elegant but carefree, stylish without all the fuss. Any bride in Lewis would look gorgeous whether she’s standing on top of a mountain or on a rooftop in the middle of the urban jungle. And man would you be able to dance the night away in this buttery soft and unrestricting wedding dress.

And since Lewis acts as the perfect blank canvas, finding the right accessories for her is a breeze! The Pilar veil from Sara Gabriel features lush signature tulle with imported Chantilly lace in a decorative scalloped border. Just enough detail to compliment the clean silky lines of Lewis.


The Glamorous Minimalist: RK9501 by Romona Keveza

In our books, minimal never means without style. And with the Romona Keveza RK9501 gown, you don’t have to sacrifice any of the glam factor for this strapless ivory wedding dress. And if that wasn’t enough, did we mention how comfortable it is?! RK9501 is made from a high quality silk crepe that gives you the feeling of silk with a little added structure and body, giving your curves the hug they deserve. And the silk crepe’s slight sheen will have you twinkling every step down the aisle. There’s no lack of luxury in this minimal beauty.

And if you’re looking for just a little sumpin’ sumpin’, we recommend pairing RK9501 with Romona Keveza’s modern silver metal belt and detachable illusion tulle overskirt to give yourself a polished and sophisticated look that’s still minimal and elegant. Jaws will drop!


The Simple and Sophisticated Bride: Maaike by Ines Di Santo

Want to know what takes minimalism to the next level? Let us introduce you to Maaike by Ines Di Santo. She features ultra-flattering princess seams, figure-flattering lines that stretch down the body and accentuate a woman’s figure in a subtle but sexy manner. The off-the-shoulder straps lend a little more sophistication and class to an already gorgeous gown that truly let’s the bride’s personality shine through.

Maaike can easily be paired with some stunning jewelry to up the wow factor. Our Sara Gabriel “Caitlin” drop earrings feature genuine Swarovski crystals in a stunning three-tierd Art Deco fashion. You’ll look and feel great in this sophisticated yet minimal combination.
