For the bride wanting minimal details, clean lines, and something super comfortable, a slip wedding dress is the way to go.
Not only is a slip dress totally sophisticated, it’s timeless and sexy all in one. If you’re not 100% sure what a slip wedding dress is, we’ll break it down below.
What is a Slip Wedding Dress?
A slip wedding dress is very simple—it’s similar to a silky slip that you would wear under another dress. It has no extra fabric like tulle or crinoline to hold its shape, making it very soft and luxurious (think lingerie).
For the most part, slip dresses have little to no embellishments, meaning they’re simple yet dramatic. They typically hug your body, allowing you to really show off your curves.

This next option has a ton of interesting detail without being overly embellished.
The Mirall gown by Watters is dramatic with Gatsby-inspired flair. From the cool cowl neckline to the charmeuse one-shoulder, this satin gown is super glam. Plus, the draping really allows this dress to have a totally unique shape.
For the final detail, a row of buttons trailing from waist to hem allows you to reveal as much, or as little, as you desire. It’s just so sexy!
Who said a slip dress couldn’t have a little fun? This Holden dress by Willowby features dreamy Pasteur floral lace and illusion tulle all the way down to the chapel train.
A flattering v-neck and strappy, open back are just extra accents to this romantic look. It’s the best of both worlds in our opinion: flirty yet feminine. We can’t wait to see this scene-stealer head down the aisle.
Rounding out our fab five, the Alexandra gown from BHLDN. It’s another silk crepe creation, but this time with a daring plunging neckline.
We love how this simple dress comes to life through the rich draping, creating a luxe silhouette. For a modern touch, a dramatic side slit and strappy open back. It’s bold and it’s definitely on our radar for future minimalist brides.
