To all our beloved brides out there that had to postpone their wedding plans, here’s something to look forward to: Spring 2021! As always, BHLDN treats us with many vegan (and budget!) friendly bridal gowns. Their Spring 2021 has some lovely looks to get you all inspired on wedding planning again! Their latest designs bear the signature of BHLDN’s loyal designers such as Jenny Yoo, Tadashi Shoji and more.
The Jessylin Gown is designed by Jenny Yoo. This whimsical polyester A-line gown is made from layer upon layer of sheer tulle for a lighter-than-air feel. The strapless sweetheart bodice is structured by exposed boning and accented with dimensional floral appliques that flow over the waistband and into the skirt.
The Didion Gown is designed by Tadashi Shoji. This long-sleeve column gown is made from intricately embroidered stretch tulle with a knit lining for added comfort and an antique-inspired lace waistband. Ribbon embroidery adds texture at the high neckline, while sheer sleeves provide an airy finishing touch. The textiles are a mix of cotton and nylon with a polyester lining.
The Sidney Gown is designed by Catherine Deane. Clean and sophisticated, this tailored charmeuse gown pairs a high neckline with a dramatic side slit. An open keyhole back provides an unexpected and sultry detail, accented by satin covered buttons. The textiles are a mix of triacetate and polyester with a recycled polyester lining.
The Francila Gown is designed by Watters. Floral Guipure lace introduces striking texture to this romantic column polyester gown, capped off with sheer cap sleeves. The classic V-neckline is mirrored in a deeply plunging back.
The Halen Gown is designed by Hayley Paige. This statement-making polyester ballgown offers dramatic movement thanks to a multi-layered skirt of cascading lace. Daring side cutouts and a modern sweetheart neckline accented with illusion tulle complete the fitted bodice.
The Quinley Gown is designed by Watters. A mix of Thicket and Brier laces atop a blush lining brings extraordinary dimension to this strapless polyester gown with a fitted silhouette. An off-the-shoulder neckline and corset details at the bodice complete the look.
The Mattea Gown by Watters is a full-skirted midi gown made from soft nylon and spandex stretch mesh for effortless comfort. Shirred sleeves flow into an off-the-shoulder neckline, delicately embellished with lace and sequins.
The Avignon Gown is designed by Sophie et Voila. A modern square neckline and bold flounce hem bring city chic style to this fitted Mikado gown in polyester.
The Gambelle Gown is designed by Watters. Removable off-the-shoulder sleeves offer two distinctive ways to wear this bohemian column in graphic floral Guipure lace. A sweetheart neckline and side slit complete the look. Made in polyester.
The Malone Gown is designed by Watters. Tip-of-the-shoulder straps complete the V-neck bodice of this romantically layered polyester gown. A blush lining and Swiss dot underlay provide striking dimension when paired with delicate lace appliques, while soft netting placement at the waist creates a flattering silhouette.
The Grazie Gown is designed by Sophie et Voila. This effortless polyester crepe gown is our pick for the modern bride, with a chic high neckline and center front seam for added sweep. At the back neck, a chiffon tie can be used to customize your look, or removed entirely for a sleek silhouette. Happy to see a potentially re-wearable look in the collection!
The Oleana Gown is designed by Christos Costarellos. Dreamy and delicate, this polyester embroidered gown features an effortless A-line silhouette. Dainty trim at the neckline and a lace inset waistband add intricate detail, while tulle ruffle trim at the hem is a whimsical finishing touch.
