There is the bride-to-be whose all about a glamorous wedding dress whether that’s a princess-style ball gown, dramatic illusion dress or an embellished bohemian style. Then there’s the bride whose not about bells and whistles when it comes to her wedding dress but still wants a gown that’s equally elegant and equally eye-catching. Enter: the slip wedding dress. Proof that glamour and ornamentation are not mutually exclusive, the body-skimming silhouette is simple and sleek but entirely show-stopping on your wedding day.

There are a variety of slip dress styles on the market from vintage-inspired silhouettes á la Old Hollywood to modern cuts with a ‘90s spirit. While it can be assumed that all slip dresses look alike—aka with pin-thin straps and a straight skirt—silhouettes run the gamut from cowl necks, halters, square high-neck shapes and plunging V-neck cuts to asymmetrical hems and slits, midi-length skirts, and versions with a slight train. The back is a part of the dress where you can go for a bit of drama, too. Certain styles come cut with a down-to-there scoop, unique strap detail, or with a draped finish.

Slip dresses come in a range of fabrics from lustrous satin to matte crêpe. For the bride-to-be who wants something super pared back, unadorned styles in these fabrics are perfect. For those in love with a simple slip but want slightly more embellishment, detailed versions in lace, with unique seaming, or touched with a few glimmering accents will feel spot on.

The key with a simple slip dress on your wedding day is a precise fit. With a style that hugs your body just so, you want to ensure each seam, strap, and finishing detail is tailored to perfectly enhance your figure. Another thing to keep in mind is that slip dresses are often more affordable than more ornate wedding dresses, making them a great option for price-conscious brides.

From stark white, cream, and ivory shades to metallic versions in silver or champagne, a slip dress is a timeless and elegant wedding dress choice whether you go for the cleanest version or one with a little more style. Here, we’re spotlighting 33 slip wedding dresses for the bride who thinks simplicity is key.
