The naturalist bride’s wedding is the epitome of understated romance. The ceremony is breezy and intimate; the reception is chic and unpretentious. She wears her hair tousled and undone, and chooses demure and feminine accessories to accent her natural beauty. She delights in bohemian elegance and subtle whimsy, and loves every part of a wildflower from root to tendril. The Kristen dress by Sottero and Midgley hits the mark for the naturalist bride because it channels rustic woodlands and fairylike radiance without being a cliché. Its tasteful sheath silhouette echoes a classic Grecian column, while a detachable tulle train and pearled belt add a measure of Shakespearean romance to the completed look. Allover leaf-and-floral motifs in faux leather grant a little rawness and edge to the gown’s easy lines and ivory palette. Pair this dress with dusty blooms, blush- and stone-colored tablecloths, rustic wood surfaces, and votive lighting for a reception that is beautiful by nature. Infuse the occasion with light fragrances and dewy cocktails, and set the mood music for a seamless transition to a starlit night. Your guests will love the relaxed, outdoor vibes and undone aesthetic. Want more dresses that don’t look too prom-ready? Check out our selection of vintage wedding dresses. On social? So are we!
