Are you hunting for a wedding dress for your informal indoor or outdoor nuptials? Or do you want a minimalist look for your second marriage or vow renewal? Then go casual. Chic yet comfortable prospects range from simple lines and unstructured styles to surprising shades and shorter hemlines. When shopping JJ’s House for casual wedding dresses under $200, refine your search by colors, silhouettes, lengths, venues, seasons, fabrics, and trend collections.
Understated yet classy silhouettes like structured sheaths with tailored jackets represent simple lines. So do wide straps. Other options include unstructured A-line dresses with basic shapes. Those straighter and narrower cuts look more casual than poufy and gathered ball gowns with elaborate layers or ruffles. Substantial fabrics such as taffeta and satin create definitive forms. But body-hugging lace and chiffon can provide the same fitted effect.
Loose, floaty dresses suit free spirits and unconventional, laidback celebrations in numerous outdoor locations. Lightweight and delicate fabrics like chiffon and lace that move easily with breezes are key because rigid materials will look unwieldy in gusty weather. Search JJ’s House by Wedding Venues and then Garden/Outdoor for relaxed styles that will sway gracefully with the wind. Avoid long trains and veils if you want your white ensemble to retain its clean color.
Flowing Boho Fashions
Romantic. Feminine. Soft. White, ivory, and muted pastel Bohemian dresses combining these ethereal elements harmonize well in natural settings like gardens, countrysides, forests, mountains, and beaches. Browse the JJ’s House Trend Collections for Sweet & Flow. You’ll find lightweight unstructured frocks in supple and floaty fabrics including chiffon, lace, and tulle. Fitted bodices with sweetheart, deep V, or illusion necklines show off upper curves. Sheer cap to long sleeves may be poufy, ruffled, or off the shoulder.
Beach Bridal Gowns
Winds can whip up short dresses, exposing more than you want to during your beach celebration. Consider longer tea- or ankle-length hemlines. Skip a train if you hope to preserve your gown’s clean appearance while gliding across sand. Shop JJ’s House by Wedding Venues and then Beach for appropriate destination-friendly styles. Sneak a slip underneath a semi-transparent frock to keep guests from seeing your backlit silhouette through flimsy material.
To show off your lean body, try simple empire waist or sheath slip dresses featuring spaghetti straps. How can you elevate pieces resembling undergarments or nightgowns into stylish wedding dresses? Check out details like embroidery, lace, and beading that add texture. Consider asymmetrical hemlines for modern designer looks. Order colors like pink and champagne instead of traditional white and ivory. Or find a gown with an embellishment such as a sash or embroidery in another shade.
Avoid form-fitting silhouettes, stiff fabrics, and tight sleeves that are too restrictive to enjoy your big day. But if your heart is set on an uncomfortable bridal gown, wear it during the vows and post-ceremony photos. Then slip on something smoother and softer that allows freer movement for the party atmosphere that follows. Under JJ’s House Wedding Venues, click on Reception to choose from various, often shorter styles. Or select Detachable for Length so you can remove a long train before hitting the dancefloor. Our prices are so low that you’ll be eager to buy two made-to-order dresses.
Unlike past generations’ traditional and limited choices of white, ivory, and champagne, today’s fashion-forward brides can wear a stunning array of shades. Shop JJ’s House by Trend Collections and then Wedding Dresses in Color. Consider anything from pastel pink or blue to regal gold or silver. If an all-over variation is too daring for you, go for a standard dress hue with a sash, bow, lace, embroidery, trim, under layer, panel, or train in a contrasting tone. Pick something like fuchsia, burgundy, royal blue, or black that coordinates with your wedding party’s attire.
Mini, knee, tea-length, and asymmetrical hemlines are casual yet chic alternatives to long skirts with trains. Filter your JJ’s House search by those and other lengths. Silhouettes range from snug sheaths to A-line skirts with flirty flares that encourage you to twirl. If you think that shorter wedding dresses are less inspiring than elaborate ball gowns, check out innovative and irresistible designer accents. Illusion necklines, embroidery, lace, ruffles, ruching, and beading add romantic charm.
