They say love is in the air during one’s wedding day, so it’s best to catch a whiff of it by having your ceremony in a garden. Walking down the aisle with the birds chirping and the sun shining can almost feel like a page straight out of a fairytale. It goes without saying such a special occasion calls for any bride to stand out from the rest, while still being one with the lush surroundings.
All the elements are invited to your wedding when you hold it in a garden, so brides have to balance wearability, style and uniqueness to their chosen frocks. Showing a little bit of skin or rocking billowy silhouettes never hurt anybody, and more importantly, they’re easy to move in! Don’t hesitate to veer away from the traditional solid-colored whites as well! The setting totally lends itself to drawing inspiration from nature when it comes to the attire. The rule of thumb here is to slip into anything that will make you feel as ethereal as the earth beneath you, after all, it is your special day.
15 Stylish Wedding Gowns Perfect for a Garden Wedding
1. Sheer Puff-Sleeve Gown
Diaphanous sheer puff-sleeves and floral embroidery add some dimension to this traditional silhouette, making a piece that’ll make you feel like you’re floating down the aisle.
2. Minimalist Drop-Waist Gown
The shape of this gown makes sure you don’t lose your figure, while still donning a cape-like train. The billows of fabric at the bottom are balanced with a structural bustier and a gathered skirt at the front.
3. Off-Shoulder Tea-Length Dress
A tea-length dress is the perfect style for an outdoors ceremony. It doesn’t run the risk of touching the floor (or in this case, the grass) and it’s a dainty, timeless look to slip into.
4. Sweetheart Neckline Dress with Straps
For a no-fuss frock perfect for warmer weather, a simple white dress with a sweetheart neckline is a faultless choice.
5. Colorful Floral Embroidered Gown
You are a goddess on your big day, so it’s best to dress like one, too. This lavender floral number is a dreamy piece to have on when you say “I do” amidst the flora and fauna around you.
6. A Minimalist Strapless Column Dress
If Mother Nature has taught us anything, it’s that less is more. An elegant column dress with a minimal train is perhaps all you need to look stunning during your nuptials. Be sure to keep your makeup and hair style restrained as well for an effortlessly sophisticated look.
7. Tulle Gown with a Plunging Neckline
Another traditional wedding silhouette is made outdoor-ready with the use of flowy tulle and the exclusion of a long train.
8. Corseted High-Slit Gown
This is a sassy but still classy look to slip into for a garden affair. I mean, being a bride doesn’t have to mean sacrificing your hubadera self, right?
9. A Crochet Floral Gown
For a look that’s on trend but will still definitely be timeless, opting for a crochet piece with floral accents is the way to go. You can even go for boots instead of heels for that authentic “country girl” vibe!
10. Tiered A-Line Dress with Sleeves
A tiered dress with subtle embroidery is a great option for those who want a more laid-back but still composed look. This is a top choice for modest brides who still want something whimsical but slightly more casual for their big day.
11. Floral Print Gown
If there was ever a time to go all out, it’s during your wedding day. Embrace the foliage around you and stun everyone with an extravagant floral gown that’s sure to leave a mark on all of your guest’s minds. It’s best to pick a color that would make you standout from your surroundings—so be sure to not go tone-on-tone with your floral arrangements!
12. A Blazer Dress
Blazers just aren’t for grooms anymore! A crisp blazer with an asymmetrical hem and gold buttons is what any commanding bride-to-be needs to walk down the aisle in when the wedding bells ring.
13. Off-Shoulder Mermaid-Style Gown
An off-shoulder moment, where the sleeves double as the train trailing behind you, is the best frock to have on for any al fresco gathering. Be sure to stay away from chunky accessories to keep your look fresh and not dated.
14. Short Dress with a Train
If a train is a non-negotiable on your wedding day, opt for a short and flirty frock to contrast it! This style allows you to show off a lot of skin without it looking sexy. It’s a plus if you can detach the excess fabric for the reception so you’re ready to hit the dance floor in a snap!
15. Minimalist Wide-Legged Jumpsuit
We’re not over brides in pants, so if you aren’t too, a wide-legged moment might just be what you’re looking for. It’s the ideal thing to have on that’ll take you from saying “I do” to dancing the night away.
