By Christina Castello
As lovers of fashion, weddings, and happy couples, we can’t help but look for reasons to help make your wedding memories even more special. If you’ve decided to postpone your wedding due to coronavirus, we recommend planning a bridal photoshoot!
If you’ve already eloped, but still want stunning wedding photos that mark these special memories, schedule a shoot! Or even if you’re having an intimate and romantic socially-distanced party with your family (yes, you guessed it) you can create the perfect day of photos in your gorgeous wedding dress.
There are no rules on how or when you get to celebrate. The romantic wedding dresses we are sharing today are photoshoot-ready for however you’re planning, re-planning, or virtual hosting your wedding.
Let these featured dresses from Allure Bridals Fall 2020 Collection inspire you. No matter if your wedding takes place in your backyard, a charming hillside, or the perfect little spot where you shared your first kiss.
Each Allure Bridals gown features details that set them apart, like beading, whimsical floral appliques, dramatic backs, and the most perfect draping. We chose ideas for each dress to help you get started, but let’s be honest, these wedding dresses can work for so many different locations and styles.
Take a peek at our virtual wedding guide, get some inspiration on “changing the date,” and schedule an impromptu bridal photoshoot! We believe in celebrating even when things aren’t going completely according to plan. Love isn’t canceled – even if your wedding plans have changed!
The most delicate off-the-shoulder neckline, organic inspired lace, and a softly nude-toned lining make this dress perfect for a misty day at the beach. This train is going to make for the most stunning photos, as it softly falls behind you the most effortless and carefree way.
Host an intimate backyard celebration with your immediate family and charm everyone in this look! This dress has the most delicate beading along the bodice, and the A-line skirt of your dreams. Bold enough to feel like a bridal gown, and light enough to feel comfortable. A skirt like this photographs perfectly from every angle.
With clean lines and a minimal design, this look is sure to contrast and really stand out along any mountain trail or sweeping grassy hillside. And just look at the back! This dress feels bridal, and all you need is your partner, a photographer, and a wild destination! Road trip, anyone?
This look has an undeniable old-world charm that would pair perfectly with the destination wedding you’re rescheduling for next year! Whether Greece, Portugal, or the Italian countryside – this lace dress is a gorgeous destination wedding dream. Lace travels easily without creasing, too, which is just another reason we love this long-sleeved number.
Imagine this soft crepe strapless gown in a house full of candles and the most sparkling accessories. The lace-up corset-style back and sheer lace detailed train are completely glamorous, so it’s no surprise this dress doesn’t require much to make a statement.
Brides, get ready to rent a dreamy Airbnb and plan your elopement for an overnight affair somewhere scenic in the woods or on a lake. This beaded ballgown is guaranteed to glimmer into the golden hour, and the delicate lace detailing is a soft reflection of the nature that will surround you.
We picture this gown with a myriad of colored decorations, bold and wild florals, and even a bright layered cake! Bump up your ceremony to the early afternoon, and let your guests virtually join you throughout the evening! The dimensional beading and leafy applique along the bodice draw the eyes upward to frame your face, and the clean ballgown gives us soft and light drama.
Tiny stitched florals are delicately incorporated along the bodice paired with a full tulle skirt that has a bit of fairytale romance. This gown is perfect for the “no-fuss” bride. It’s so playful! Even for a last-minute elopement, you don’t need to worry about your hair looking precisely styled or a detailed bouquet. Keep your look natural, snag a quick bundle of flowers from the supermarket, and enjoy yourself!
Run around town snapping photos, seeing the sights, and smooching on park benches. This off-the-shoulder neckline is sleek and sexy, complementing the hourglass silhouette perfectly. You and your partner are bound to be the best-dressed in town (and sure to turn heads) as you celebrate your first day as a married couple.
This satin ballgown adorned in applique and beading has a modern twist – the plunge neckline! Soft undertones of silver sparkle throughout, and we can’t help but imagine this dress with a fun and instagrammable backdrop to pose with! Craft yourself a chic backdrop from your Pinterest boards (like streamers, balloons, or even a pretty tapestry!) and snap photos together all night.
There’s something bohemian about this bold lace, illusion back detail, and the effortless way it flows. Plan a completely non-traditional wedding photoshoot (and if you have a pup, bring them too!) Pick a statement accessory like over-the top earrings, or a dramatic headpiece, and naturally any location you choose will feel unique.
Do you have a favorite park, waterfront boardwalk, or lookout point near your town? Meet your partner at the place where you had your first date or first kiss, and keep this look a surprise! Off-the-shoulder tulle, floral applique that dance throughout the ballgown – every element of this look is lovely. So, even if your wedding is rescheduled, you’ll still get that “first look” moment!
