Wedding Dress Ideas For The Classic Bride

Mar 1, 2022

Do you find yourself gravitating toward wedding dresses with more traditional elements? Well, you are probably a classic bride! In this post, we’re going through what a classic bride is, as well as some ideas of dresses that you might love!


Don’t mistake a classic bride for boring! Being a classic bride simply means that you gravitate toward the more traditional dress silhouettes, fabrics, and necklines. Some features that classic brides tend to gravitate toward include: 

  • The “clean” look — think Mikado fabrics
  • Romantic lace
  • Sleeves
  • Ballgowns or A-line silhouettes
  • Buttons along the back
  • Long trains


If you are a classic bride, and you’re in the Hagerstown, Maryland area, then you are in luck! We are having a Classic Bride Trunk Show THIS weekend, January 14-16,2022. We only have a few appointments left during this event, so click here to see our available times and book your appointment, or give us a call at 301-665-1070!


Here are a few gown options that we carry that are perfect for the more classic and traditional bride. These gowns are not exclusive to our trunk show, so feel free to book an appointment outside of the trunk show if you’re interested in any of these!

Sophia Tolli Kennedy

The Kennedy gown from Sophia Tolli is one of our most popular wedding dresses for brides who like the clean and classic look! It is a classic, yet modern, ballgown with pockets. It’s made out of luxurious pearl Mikado and will keep you so comfortable on your wedding day. Plus, it has a chapel length train — how could you get more classic than that?!

Adore by Justin Alexander 11149

The 11149 from Adore by Justin Alexander is such a classic, elegant gown. It has long sleeves along with a plunging neckline and Mikado skirt. The Chantilly lace and scalloped eyelash detail add some gorgeous romantic detail to the gown! 

Justin Alexander April

The April from Justin Alexander gives brides an incredibly classic look. It is a stretch Mikado A-line gown with a deep v-neck. It has a sophisticated plunging neckline and v-back. However, if you aren’t a fan of the plunging neckline, it is also available with a raised neckline option!

Sophia Tolli Alexi

The Alexis gown from Sophia Tolli has a bit more of a modern take on a classic gown than the Kennedy does. It is a simple fit-and-flare gown with a plunging v-neck. There is a strappy back with a detachable origami bow, giving it a bit of a unique touch! It also has a chapel-length train. 

Adore by Justin Alexander 11110

The 11110 from Adore by Justin Alexander will have you looking incredibly timeless on your wedding day. It is a cotton lace A-line gown with a pleated Mikado skirt and pockets. The Sabrina neckline and v-back add some gorgeous touches to this dress, as well!
