Casual Wedding Dresses and Why You Should Wear One

If you are looking for a casual wedding dress for your wedding, you came to the right place! Here at True Society, we have a beautiful selection of casual and minimalistic bridal gowns for every type of wedding vibe. From elopements and courthouse weddings to charming backyard affairs and intimate ceremonies, our True Crew is ready to help brides find the casual wedding dress that works with their wedding day style. 

What Is a Casual Wedding Dress? 

While glamorous ballgowns or luxe mermaids are the dream dress for some brides, others prefer a more informal approach for their low-key nuptials. To successfully achieve this simple bridal style, choose a wedding gown with a minimalist look. Clean and sleek fabrics take center stage in simple wedding dresses and are easy and FUN to dress up or down with accessories and design accents.  

How Do You Style a Casual Wedding Dress? 

Bridal accessories always provide the opportunity to elevate a wedding dress, no matter how simple or embellished the dress. From headpieces and jewelry to veils and shoes, there are many ways to add sparkle, color and personality to your wedding look. Pearls are also popular amongst modern brides, as they bring a chic nostalgia and vintage feel into casual and formal bridal looks equally.  

For an ethereal look, choose a simple cathedral tulle veil you can remove after the ceremony. The simplicity of the flowy material will bring just enough “bridal vibes” to your carefree wedding day look. Small jewelry would work best to maintain a low-key feel, while statement earrings and colored shoes can dress it up to make a fashion statement. 

Why Should I Wear a Casual Dress? 

To match the relaxed look and feel of your wedding, you need a bridal dress that displays simplicity and reflects minimalism. Scaling back on layers of tulle, chiffon and lace appliqués also provides comfort and helps to create that desired casual look and feel. 

Regardless of the level of formality at your wedding or the location of your celebration, a bride’s dress should always reflect their personality. If you describe your everyday style as approachable and laid back, choose a casual bridal gown that makes you feel like your best self on your big day.
