Whimsical Wedding Dresses

If you’re on a journey to find your perfect wedding dress, it may help to break down what kind of overall aesthetic you want to aim for in regards to your dress. One staple style that is worth trying when trying to pinpoint your bridal style is whimsical.

We hope you can use this blog to guide and inspire you to look into this particular bridal style if you think it aligns with you.

Whimsical is defined as playfully quaint or fanciful. When it comes to wedding dresses think ethereal, soft, romantic gowns which may feature nature inspired details, a flowy silhouette and light, airy fabric.

We have a variety of whimsical styled wedding dresses at Dotty that could be the perfect fit for the bridal look you want to achieve. See below some of our top picks from Dotty of our favourite whimsical collections.

Madi Lane are an amazing designer to look into if you are drawn to whimsical styles. Made up of delicate, nature inspired lace which along with the layered tulle give the perfect ethereal look. The a-line gowns are adorned with floral and leafy lace. The tulle gives it an airy feel which as a bonus is extra comfortable to wear. The mocha undertones used throughout the collection makes it more natural and soft than a full ivory gown, plus the contrast in colour makes the lace stand out more.

Whimsical styles don’t solely have to be a-line, if a fitted silhouette is more your thing, the same effect can be achieved with a lacey fit and flare gown. The delicate leafy lace create an ethereal look. The romantic bardot neckline with a slight plunge is very feminine and gives it a sexy flare.

Madison James is unique collection that covers all bridal needs and wants in their designs. From the above designs you can see the types of lace and the placement of the lace. Movement of the dresses really bring the bride to life. The gowns feel light and summery and are the perfect soft romantic gowns for all. 

The fit and flare gown above is a mix between whimsical and glamour, best suited for the modern bride. The tulle bow straps are a unique edition to the dress. The floaty, romantic sleeves contrast well with the sleek fitted silhouette of the rest of the dress. There is no right way to do a whimsical gown, so if you want a hint of glamour in there as well, then this can be achieved too.
