Not everyone wants to make their big day ‘big’ – whether you’re doing it for the second time, you want to get married quick, or you’re just not that type of person. But that doesn’t mean you have to say goodbye to the white dress! We’ve teamed up with Enzoani to bring you 8 of the most stunning, but simple wedding dresses perfect for informal ceremonies…

A lot of the time, you’ll find these gorgeous, simple dresses can be flexible to suit both bigger weddings, and smaller ones – it’s all about how you accessorise. Ditch the glitz for a less formal ceremony, and you don’t need to go too overboard with hair and make-up either.

Wedding dresses perfect for informal ceremonies tend to have a flattering silhouette that is close-fitting to your shape. We’ve got to say, princess and ballgown skirts are probably a no-no if you’re looking for something a little more subtle. Opt for column skirts, or subtle fishtails and A-lines instead.

You don’t want a heavily embellished dress either. Either go completely simple with a plain satin, chiffon or organza dress, or go towards something with minimal beading or embellishment – perhaps a belt, or detailed neckline to give it that something extra.

Necklines needn’t be too extravagant either. A classic sweetheart neckline is a delicate and pretty choice, and a popular one too. Steer clear of high neck or illusion necklines if you want to go to the subtle look as they can be seen of something of a statement feature! Same with ornate backs – keep it simple with a zip or button back, or a low back for a sexy look.
