After the crazy summer—or lack thereof—of 2020, we are SO excited for summer 2021! For our summer 2022 brides, it’s also the perfect time to start looking for their wedding dress. It is often recommended that brides say yes to the dress about a year out from their wedding day. So, while you’re soaking up the sun and having fun with your family, friends, and your special someone, we’ve decided to make it easy on your search by compiling a list of our top 10 picks for summer wedding dresses.
1. 6918 by Stella York
Stella York has done it again with this gorgeous ball gown wedding dress! This is one of our picks because of how much detail there is in the dress all while remaining pretty lightweight, which is perfect for the summer. The intricate floral lace pattern, beaded spaghetti straps, and ruffled horsehair skirt are all key indicators of a romantic, ethereal style with a boho edge. Stella York is great for brides who are looking for an affordable wedding dress that still has a gorgeous, detailed flare.
2. ES851 / Jane by Enaura
Enaura is known for their intricate, hand-beaded detailing and acute attention to detail. Any bride who loves a beaded gown knows that beading can add some heaviness to a dress. This is a perfect summer gown for the bride who loves to sparkle! With all of this gown’s beading at the bodice of the dress, leading down to a fully clean, fitted, and lightweight crepe skirt, any bride will feel super comfortable moving around, dancing, and having fun in the summer heat.
3. 99158 / Basie by Justin Alexander Signature
For the bride who likes a little bit of drama in their dress, Basie from Justin Alexander’s Signature line is just right for you! This mermaid gown shows off your gorgeous curves with its fitted top, but the horsehair skirt and train shows off your wild side! This is a perfect summer gown for a bride who wants a little bit of sparkle and pizazz! This would be perfect for an indoor Summer wedding overlooking the ocean.
4. 72103 / Sawyer by Ti Adora
Ti Adora is a collection from Allison Webb, curated for the bride who wants a fresh, elegant, lace wedding dress. Chantilly lace and English net come together in this gorgeous fit-and-flare, with a sweetheart illusion neckline that is basically the definition of romantic. The fun crisscross back is a beautiful and unique element of this gown. This is a perfectly lightweight gown that will be sure to make your partner shed a tear (or a hundred).
5. EF603 / Ella by Enaura
We already knew another Enaura gown would make it to our list—we just can’t get enough! Ella is a stunning ball gown with a clean tulle skirt, which helps to lighten the dress overall. The back of this dress is pretty open, just with some illusion fabric and more beading. This is an amazing feature of the gown, because it adds some breathability without being too simple. This is a great dress for people who, like me, tend to get hot easily, but want a stunning ball gown for their big day.
6. EK1243 by Eddy K
If you are looking for a simple wedding gown, look no further. This dress has it all: a deep v-neck plunge, a cummerbund waist that cinches in the body, and a beautifully clean, crepe skirt. While this dress may seem totally clean in the front, turn around and you will find an ornate, beaded lace back, which will completely steal the show. Who doesn’t love a reveal?
7. DR2044 / Desiree by Eddy K
I think that we can all agree that this is a contender for the sexiest wedding dress, like, ever. I mean, look at it! This trumpet style gown has deep illusion side cut outs that will definitely give you some breathability if you are planning to have an outdoor wedding in the Summer heat.
8. 42101 / Tinsley by Allison Webb
Short wedding dresses are pretty rare to find, which is why we are so lucky to have one as beautiful as Tinsley on our hands! This beaded Alencon lace midi dress is sure to wow your wedding guests while the shortened length and strapless, rolled sweetheart neckline will definitely keep you cool during your big day. Best of all, Tinsley comes with a removable bow on the back of its pleated waist. It’s such a beautifully modern, feminine style meant for the contemporary and unique bride.
9. C574 by Allure Couture
Okay, can we just say that this is such a perfect beach wedding dress? I mean, look at the material! Here we have yet another stunning gown from Allure Couture that will glisten in the summer sun with all of its beading. We also just can’t get enough of this gorgeous train! This is the type of gown meant for the bride who wants something comfortable, but will still blow all of their wedding guests away with the amount of detail added to their dress.
10. DR2210 / Selena by Eddy K
Last but definitely not least, let us introduce you to one of our newest gowns in the store, Selena! The tastefully plunging neckline, spaghetti strap, and low back are all elements of a sexy, yet elegant, wedding gown. You can see Eddy K’s Italian-inspired designs through the floral lace pattern style can be found throughout this dress, paying homage to Eddy K’s Italian-inspired design.
Did you notice anything about these dresses? I did! They’re ALL so different, yet perfect for the summer! These dresses come in various silhouettes, levels of beading and prices. The great thing about a perfect dress is that it is up to you to decide what your definition of perfect is! These are only suggestions based on trends we have noticed, but we have so many more gowns that would fit the mark of being a perfect summer wedding dress. If you’re looking for a trendy, fun and beautiful wedding gown, look no further! LLB has the perfect gown for you.
