The romance of simplicity reigns with these seven light and luxurious gowns
Lainey Dow

1. Simply Flowered (above)

The stunning “Lee” gown by Parisian designer Rime Arodaky boasts an off-the-shoulder neckline beautifully met with embroidered floral illusion tulle gracing the back. Romantic silk chiffon details on the skirt add texture and continue the flawless style. $2,390, from LOHO Bride in Los Angeles;


2. Effortless Drama

With a plunging front cutout and open-back design, Alexandra Grecco’s “Paloma” flaunts dramatic details while remaining refreshingly simple and elegant. Graceful sleeves sweep over the shoulders, creating an effortless display of beauty. $4,200, from Solstice Bride in Venice and The Dress Theory in San Diego;


3. Take the Plunge

With a simple bodice and bold skirt, Tara Keely’s fit and flare gown has it all. The unique halter neckline and keyhole detail are counterpoints to the sparkly tulle skirt, while a low-cut back ties it all together. $1,969, JLM Boutique in Los Angeles;


4. Rose Garden

The deep V-neck of Lela Rose’s “Waterfall” gown highlights the illusion bodice. The gown’s dainty, understated floral pattern is classic yet decidedly modern. $5,995, from Jin Wang San Francisco;


5. Bow Tied

The wide neckline of the “Andie” gown by Carolina Herrera drops dramatically down the back in silk crepe details, leading to a showstopping organza bow on the back. The unique bow accessory beautifully complements the gown’s lovely train. $5,990, at Carolina Herrera in Beverly Hills;


6. Sparkle and Shine

Anne Barge’s minimalist “Linden” gown elegantly sweeps across the floor, displaying a simple, relaxed column silhouette. Pair with “Linden” cap-sleeve body jewelry for a touch of glamour. $3,290 (gown), $950 (body jewelry); from The Bustle in Del Mar;


7. Fine and Feathered

Regal right down to the feather-trimmed touch at the ends of the sleeves, Atelier Pronovias’ crepe and organza ”Nuria” mermaid gown features a bateau neckline and a sexy side-slit skirt that finishes in an elegant train. Just add a veil and the vision is complete. Price upon request, at Mariposa Bridal Boutique in Anaheim and The White Dress in Corona Del Mar;
