Five Comfortable Wedding Dresses for the Laid-Back Bride

When it comes to choosing a wedding dress, brides hear all about styles and silhouettes. In our opinion, there’s not enough talk about finding casual, comfortable, wedding dresses! At the end of the day, it’s all about finding balance: a dress that makes the bride feel beautiful while also being comfortable enough to wear for hours on end. 

 Whether you’re having a laid-back backyard affair or just have a liking for simple bridal gowns you can wear to dance the night away, there is a comfortable wedding gown for every bride! 

What Is a Comfortable Wedding Dress? 

The secret to a comfortable wedding dress is all in the fabric. Comfortable wedding dresses should be made of natural materials that are soft and smooth to the touch – so consider opting for a silk wedding dress or chiffon bridal gown. These fabrics are breathable and won’t make you feel overheated. Brides can also look for key features like: 

  • Straps and buttons made of soft materials that won’t dig into your skin.  
  • Inner lining that breathes easily, so there’s no pulling against sensitive skin. 
  • A gown that has a little give to it, so it isn’t too tight and can easily stretch. 

Style is important, but so is comfort. Casual brial dresses and simple wedding gowns aren’t always synonyms with comfort. When choosing a comfortable wedding dress, communicating with your bridal stylist is key.  

If a material feels too tight, itchy or uncomfortable, let your True Crew stylist know immediately during the try-on. This can help narrow down your search. While our True Crew stylists always factor in comfort levels when helping brides shop, they want every bride to look AND feel their best on their big day.
