How To Style Your Casual Wedding: The Elopement Fashion Guide

How To Style Your Intimate Wedding – The Elopement Fashion Guide | David’s Bridal Little White Dresses 9

As a bridal stylist, I love hearing all the dreamy wedding details of brides traveling to far off destinations, couples eloping in wondrous earthy settings, and even those city-chic ladies having a courthouse wedding with an intimate after party. The common thread for all these brides? They still need a dress! But why overcomplicate the details when a little white dress awaits?!

The Courthouse City Party

Make your way from the courthouse to a fun rooftop party in this chic and stylish number. (Be sure to stop and snap photos along the way!) The high-low strapless gown is asking for you to show off some daring shoes as you joyfully make your exit from city hall.

“Cheers” to love with something sweet from a street vendor (wouldn’t ice cream photos be darling?) or take a relaxed stroll through the nearest park. This gown is playful enough to grab a cafe au lait before you make it to your final destination for the night.

The Intimate, Romantic Celebration

This glamorous sheath gown is an enchanting look for the romantic bride. It combines allover lace and delicate eyelash trim details for a timeless look.

It’s for those who are ready to make the journey to a mountainous lookout point or a striking forested setting (for all my fairy and woodland-loving brides out there). We’re envisioning plenty of greenery, a soft wavy hairstyle, and a funky accessory like a metallic statement necklace.

For something more glam, we think a chignon and a pair of long chandelier earrings make this dress “rustic-candlelit-dinner-party” ready.

Surround yourself with family, loved ones, and let your natural beauty glow from within.

The Wild Destination Elopement

Ready for a sweet getaway vacation? Let the sun beam with brightness at your destination elopement ceremony. From the palm desert to a sunny island off the coast (Menorca would be my suggestion!) this leaf applique gown is totally elopement-chic with a high-neck and a sleek fitted design.

It’s begging to pair with your sassiest sunglasses and to be surrounded by vivid tropical plants. Maybe even a bold turquoise colored heel? Either way, this gown is naturally cool and ready for the adventurous, colorful, destination bride.

The Bridal Shower or Brunch Wedding Babe

A mock neck dress like this is demure yet flirty – hugging all your curves while looking and feeling chic. This classy design would complement a dressy bridal shower or a midday ceremony followed by brunch.

It’s perfectly dressy as a bridal look and casual enough for daytime. Pairing it with a funky jacket adds an element of edge, a soft bouquet adds some whimsy, or even a veil makes it chapel ready. Either way, mimosas are a must!

The Second Dress Transformation

Are you in love with the idea of changing into a second gown after your ceremony? This short lacey number is waiting for you!

You’ll be in high spirits and completely carefree donning this short illusion lace bell-sleeve dress. It’s a blend of boho elegance, asking for you to let your hair down, toss on a sparkling headpiece, and charm your way around your after-party.

Honeymoon Dreaming

This sexy, of-the-moment gown just needs to jet along to your honeymoon destination!

The draped off-the-shoulder detail is absolutely stunning and an easy companion for travel packing. It needs no accessories other than your lover on your arm. This dress is ready for evening dinner and dancing – an absolute must – to welcome you and your partner into married life!

We definitely suggest a bold red lip and a flower in your hair.
