Wedding dresses with bows

Big, small or scattered, ultra modern brides love wedding dresses with bows. They’re the perfect add-on to an often otherwise minimalist gown. Scroll through my pick of the 20 best bow’d big day frocks – you’ll see that they’re anything but girly. Click on your favourite for more details…

Amsale Pierce

Silk taffeta meets sheer tulle all tied up in a bow at the waist. This wedding dress is the stuff of dreams.

Rachel Gilbert Anniston

Giving me serious Madonna ‘Material Girl’ vibes… Anniston is a chic strapless tube dress adorned with the biggest bow at the back. I’m smitten…

Luce Sposa Cleo

A corseted satin fit & flare gown adorned with a detachable train and bow. There are lots of reasons to fall head over heels for Cleo.

Elihav Sasson RG-017

Don’t think this dress is all about the incredible backview. There’s also a waist-deep plunge going on. Sophisticated and very sexy.

Elihav Sasson Kate

Kate is all about the drama – a cascade of ruffles, a low strappy back that’s as jaw-dropping as the front and the whole thing seemingly held up by loose bows hovering mid arm. This is a dress of dreams.

Eva Lendel Davina

The magpie in me wants to relive my wedding day just so I can wear this dress. A strapless sparkling mermaid silhouette (tick) overlaid with crisp asymmetric crepe (tick) all tied up in a bow at the shoulder (tick)

Ricca Sposa 21-030

Sitting pretty at the base of a plunging neckline, the bow cinches in the waist giving way to a romantic ball gown ‘fit for a princess’ skirt.

Halfpenny London Dahlia

This is a supersize detachable bow placed at the shoulder of Halfpenny London’s Hyacinth dress, an elegant column of duchess satin. Beyond stunning.

Milla Nova Brielle

This is how Milla Nova puts a big bow on a little dress……

Millanova Aurora

…and this is how Milla Nova puts a little bow on a bigger dress……

Madioni Patricia

I love Patricia’s sparkling corset bodice and full Princess skirt – but most of all I love the soft puffs of the shoulder bows.

Zoe Rowyn Judith

Judith proves just how beautifully a bow can finish off an otherwise seemingly simple dress. I love how it trails into a ruffle effect. Modern and edgy, I love it.

Silvia Navarro Denise

It’s a budget bow – a two piece comprising a crop top finished off with a soft pink bow and elegant crepe pants.

Silvia Navarro Beckie

Satin bows and ostrich feathers – the perfect city ceremony statement set.

Nadine Merabi Emiliee

Fall in love with the puff sleeves, the thigh-high hem and the statement bow doing its own job of being a bridal train. And then look at the shoes….

Lihi Hod Lola

Elegant, off the shoulder and tied up with a bow above a peek-a-boo waist band. Stunning.

Ralph and Russo Look 1

Where to start…? The ultimate wedding dress with bows – one big and eight small – beautifully decorating a column of satin

Ines di Santo Loredana

Cue major excitement with this dress – it’s a lace bow! Dreamy!

Galia Lahav Margaret

It’s strapless, it’s got a slit and it’s asymmetrically bow’d bodice leads to a huge satin hip bow. And then there’s that long train…..

Galia Lahav Joanne

There’s that sexy slit again but this time it’s cutting through lace. The bow comes courtesy of the satin skirt creating a two-looks-in-one dress option.

So, do you feel inspired to choose a wedding dress with a bow? Many of them do come detachable so you can create a different look for your reception. I’d love to know which are your favourites.

  • It’s surprising how something as simple as adding a bow can make your dress bespoke. I suggested adding a bow at my fitting. It transformed my dress and gave me a great silhouette. Plus it ramped up my back view
