Whether your style is casual, traditional or romantic, these are the best Reformation wedding dresses for brides this year
By Diane Small
I love the dresses from the LA based brand for many reasons. Mainly their cool-girl chic, their leggy styles and their sustainability. But when I heard Reformation was making bridal wear, I seriously wanted to get married again!
Reformation wedding dresses really are unlike any others. They’re casually feminine shapes you’re guaranteed to want to wear again and again, whether you’re a bride, bridesmaid, or just married to fashion.
In keeping with Reformation’s eco-ethos, all materials are sourced from deadstock or are otherwise eco friendly, like their new Blue Sign Eco Silk. This is made using what the brand claims to be the safest dyes in the world, and it provides the basis for their new line of slip dresses.
They also use TENCEL, linen and upcycled lace in their dresses. My advice? Why not choose a sustainable fabric like linen that can be dyed to your favourite colour once the honeymoon’s over? That way, you can wear you dress – and your beautiful memories – for years to come.
PS: You can also make your day more memorable with wedding party accessories. This will make the event more meaningful.
The Best Reformation Wedding Dresses For 2022
Do you dream of dressing like Maid Marion? Nostalgic for the days of Albion? The Stars is one of the best Reformation wedding dresses for you! It features a fitted bodice; tiered, puffed sleeves; a full skirt and a princess neckline. To make the look even more romantic, a crown of wildflowers would be perfect! I could also see this gown on a barefoot beach wedding bride…
Perfect for an evening wedding, the Acacia dress is slick, chic, and a bit artistic. Its elegant lines make for a highly modern bride. Why not pair it with a tiny bouquet and some stilettos?
And once the wedding’s over, you could easily dye this and transform it into a LBD that would see you through cocktail parties, art gallery openings, and so many other soirees!
Reformation wedding dresses don’t get more romantic than this!
Ruffles? Check. Maxi length? Check. Open back. Yep. All of these features, plus a deep V neckline throughout the front and back and a fitted waist and full skirt make this Fairfield dress ultra romantic.
And the best part? You can easily dye the organic cotton fabric of this dress any shade you like after the wedding. Oh, and if you’re a guest instead of the bride, you can get this dress in black or green!
Spaghetti straps. A fitted bodice. A slinky skirt that flares out. The Venetia dress features all of these details, offering a clean, minimalistic design for brides who don’t like to fuss.
It’s such a simple dress, you could choose to simply hold a few wildflowers to accent the minimalism, or you could alternatively use the dress as a background for a much more elaborate bouquet.
This dress also features adjustable straps, so you can fit it as you wish.
If you’ve always dreamed about a fancy gown for your sustainable wedding, but don’t want to look like you just hopped off a wedding cake, the Geranium dress is for you.
Made from 100% pure silk, it boasts an open, deep v-backline with a large centre back bow for an extra romantic vibe. It would pair perfectly with pearl jewellery and a colourful bouquet.
The Balsam is one of those Reformation wedding dresses with a bit of a twist! The maxi length pillar is highlighted with a square neckline and large white bows to tie it up at the shoulder.
There’s so much you could do with these! Cut them to suit your style, or even tie a flower or garland that matches your bouquet into them. It’s fitted in the waist, with back smocking, allowing for comfort and structure all at once.
Popping in to City Hall to say ‘I do’? Why not wear the Rudi dress? It’s cute, it’s youthful, and it doesn’t take itself too seriously. Sure, the hemline is a shorter one, but that conservative neckline and long sleeves ensure the dress’ sexy vibes are toned down just enough. Especially true if you accessorise with a pair of vegan flats or trainers.
This is another one of those Reformation wedding dresses you can easily restyle or dye to wear later, at different occasions.
The Lorrane is a strapless, maxi length dress made from deadstock fabric. Its straight neckline with back zipper make it a classic, timeless style.
Ideal for slimmer figures, it’s fitted throughout giving you a little shape in the areas where you might want it.
Wear it with some delicate diamond earrings and a delicate diamond pendant, or perhaps a single strand of pearls.
Reformation wedding dresses follow trends to some extent. And the off-the-shoulder style is super hot this year! It features feminine, ruffled, off the shoulder straps and a smocked back bodice for a little bit of stretch.
And that side slit? Keeps you from looking like a frumpy bride! A bit too much for you? You can always sew it over to suit your personal level of modesty.
If you would usually like to shun trendy looks for traditional, the Hestia dress is for you! form fitting in the bodice, with a slim fit through the hips, and a mermaid skirt. This dress has a ribbon tie around the waist, and a high neckline for a sophisticated look.
Wear it with something old, something new, something borrowed, and something blue.
