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: 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.
The Best Reformation Wedding Dresses For 2021 Brides
Do you dream of dressing like Maid Marion? Nostalgic for the days of Albion? The Stars dress is 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, 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!
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.
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.
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.
