With all that wedding stress (seating chart conflicts, fully-booked dream venues, flaky florists...), doesn't a bride deserve one part of the planning process to be totally effortless? Well it doesn't get any easier (or breezier!) than these wedding dresses. (Because why can't the most important part of your big day — besides your groom, of course! — also be the easiest?)

These flowy frocks have managed to capture both the springtime breeze and our hearts. Full of bohemian bliss, refreshing modernity, and dripping with contemporary sex appeal, these effortlessly chic wedding dresses will be as at home in an open-air, warm weathered ceremony as they are on the bridal runways.

The sun is setting on stiff silhouettes and restricting ball gowns. It's time to say hello to breathable fabrics, peek-a-boo cut-outs, and freeing fits.

Easy? Check. Sexy? Yup. Cool? Definitely.
