As soon as the year 2000 hit, brides everywhere were opting to go strapless at their wedding. The craze didn’t last long, and Kate Middleton’s famous lace-sleeved gown sparked a brand new trend. In the past, Grace Kelly also wore a similar style, and it was equally as stunning.
Many brides who wore strapless dresses complained they were too cold in the winter and it was annoying to always have to pull them up at the top. Here’s proof that you can still look like a princess on your big day while being as comfortable as possible.
1. Bohemian/Woodland Themed Dress
Finally! A dress that’s feminine, flattering, and perfect if you want a wedding with a rustic feel. The key is a lace top and a full tulle skirt. Wear a wreath or a few flowers in your hair for added effect.

3. The Tea Rose
Who says you have to have a full-length dress? If you opt for a luncheon reception and more casual dress-code, why not go for something not-quite-white and tea length?

5. Cinderella at the Ball
There’s nothing quite as flattering as a full skirt with a fitted waist and sleeves. This dress is right out of a fairytale, and the skirt makes her look like she’s floating above the ground. So pretty!

6. Old-Fashioned Princess
On the other hand, you could go for something even more dramatic with a long, full train, lace overlay, and 3/4 sleeves. This is one of my favorite looks, because it’s retro and looks good on any body type.
7. Sugar & Spice & All Things Nice
Could this get any sweeter? This blushing bride went for the ultra-feminine look with a lot of sheer fabrics and stunning lace sleeves. To get the look, add some drop earrings, a low and loose updo, and a bouquet of peach-colored flowers.
You work too hard for your money to throw it all away on full price when you don't have to!
