What is the most classic wedding dress you can find? A timeless dress has a flattering but straightforward silhouette, with understated details and a sense of luxury sophistication. Some of our favorites also feature modern touches, like a sleek Mikado material or an off-the-shoulder neckline. But these are subtle rather than dramatic.

Our Bridal Experts in-store are the ones who know best, so we challenged them to choose their dream traditional wedding dress. See their stunning selection below…


Elena has a stunning design that is both contemporary and classic in style. This traditional ballgown has been modernized with sleek details, clean lines, and shimmering Mikado fabrics. It is a dress that brides of the 21st century will love.

The V-neckline is softly plunged into a waistband that accentuates the smallest part of the waist. The band wraps around to frame the striking, square back. This dress is given a vintage Hollywood look with the simple Mikado bow that can be removed.

The dramatic skirt is the final touch. It’s truly magnificent. This dress has a stunning structure and volume thanks to the shimmering Mikado. This fabric is also perfect for adding a touch of extravagance to a classic look. You can do this by wearing an underskirt that shows off the ballgown to its best. Then, match it with a Perla Tiara or our lace Monae veil.


Platinum Edition Beatrice is another style of classic wedding dress. This look is all in the details, paired with an understated, contrasting A-line skirt to create a luxurious, sophisticated look.

This semi-sheer, flattering bodice features an off-the-shoulder neckline with a V-neck that is neatly dipped and has illusion panels. It’s not overly revealing. Seeing the floral lace covering both the straps and bodice is stunning. The dress is adorned with hundreds of sequins and glass beads that sparkle from all angles.

The back has a gentle V-neck with a row of a pearlescent button that leads the eye down the 100-inch extra-long train. The skirt is made of sleek Mikado. It has minimal details to create a beautiful contrast. The shimmering train behind you will be stunning. If you think this dress can’t get better, wait until you find out that it also has hidden pockets!

Sophisticated Shimmer

Adelaide will also stand the test time. The off-the-shoulder straps are on trend and flatter the shoulders and arms. They’re a subtle, modern detail that goes beautifully with the crisp skirt.

The Mikado fabric is sleek and modern, with just the right amount of shimmer. The sophisticated cuff neckline is also easily dressed up or down. Please keep it simple by wearing a small pendant necklace, or go bold with statement earrings.

Add a glittering Leonie belt to emphasize the waistline. Add a shimmering Leonie Belt to accentuate the waist. Remember an Underskirt for maximum volume.


The Mikado dress is a classic, with sleek lines and subtle shimmer. The Elton is a stunning minimal dress, but its bodice, with its flattering paneling and cuff details, also nods to the current catwalk trends.

It’s easy to overlook the intricate lacing that supports you throughout the day. It’s one of our first gowns using 50% recycled yarns and fabrics!

This glossy ballgown skirt has neat princess seams which flow seamlessly into the voluminous pleats. It is perfect to wear with one of our Underskirts. To complete the look, pair it with a traditional veil.


Our real brides know how to choose a style for their big day that suits them. We have selected a few brides who have nailed this look perfectly.


Katie selected our beautiful Esther dress. It was the perfect match for an elegant city wedding. She says, “I chose Esther as it is timeless and elegant.” It was so comfortable. The attention to detail in the bodice, the flowing Mikado skirt/train, and the long flowing Mikado train were all beautiful. “I paired it with the willa veil which matched perfectly.”

Let’s go outside.

A real bride, Emily discovered that classic is also an excellent look for an outdoor ceremony. She says that the Middlesbrough WED2B store was their first stop. “I loved the first dress I tried. “I chose Florian because it was satin and corset style, but best of all, it had pockets!”


Maz chose Annette as her last choice for the rustic wedding by the sea. The back detailing is stunning, and the cut so flattering,” says Maz. The material is beautiful and appears much more expensive than the price. I wanted to wear something classic, timeless, and straightforward.

We hope we have given you some ideas to consider when choosing your classic wedding dress. A pared-back mermaid style? A Mikado ballgown? What about an A-line with off-the-shoulder sleeves?
