To give you a glimpse of the enticing selections from this season’s Lookbook, I have selected 17 beautifully dreamy and inspiring wedding gowns that are perfect for a Spring and Summer wedding.

This beautiful gown hits all the sweet spots with its flirtatious illusion bodice and trendy ivory underlay highlighting the intricate lace embroidery cascading romantically down the A-line skirt.

2. Sheath Gown in Chiffon with an Illusion Lace Bodice

Amanda Lee Weddings

Summer is all about blue skies and warm weather, and this flowy dress in the lovely shade of Sky reminds me of just that. Plus, the light Chiffon material and sexy open-back makes it perfect to keep cool in an outdoor wedding.

3. Beaded Silver Sheath Dress with a Thigh Slit

Dang Bridal

I love dresses with that come-hither thigh slit, and this silver beaded sheath dress is one of my favourite from this season’s Lookbook. Sexy and elegant, the thin shoulder straps add a feminine touch while the beading on the dress add a beautiful, subtle sheen to the outfit.

4. Ballgown with Romantic Floral Appliqué and an Illusion Lace Bodice

Divine Couture

No princess bride can resist the good old ballgown, especially one that is decked out with whimsical fabric flower petals and a sweet lace illusion bodice.

5. Full Lace Mermaid Dress with a Thigh Slit

Flamingo Bridal

Another one of my favourites this season, this form-fitting full lace mermaid gown exudes feminine innocence and sexuality at the same time with its elegant full lace sleeves and coquettish thigh slit.

6. Fit and Flare Gown with a Sweetheart Neckline in Deep Wine

Gowns Villa

The fit and flare dress with a sweetheart neckline is a classic that never goes out of style no matter what season it is. The deep shade of wine lends extra elegance and grandeur to this dress, making it the ideal choice for a luxurious ballroom wedding.

7. Pastel Ballgown with a Sweetheart Neckline and an Overcoat Embellished with Colourful Lace

Jawn Happy.Ever.After

Featuring a timeless ballgown silhouette with a sweetheart neckline in a shade of pink that reminds of the sun’s warmth rays and a unique overcoat adorned with a variety of colourful lace reminiscent of vibrant Spring flowers, this sweet pastel number is without contest the epitome of Spring time and garden weddings.

8. Off-the-Shoulder A-Line Gown with Crystal Beading

Jess Haute Couture

Simple and sweet, this delicate number pairs an all-time-favourite silhouette, the A-line, with the latest off-shoulder dress trend. The beaded shoulder straps is a unique twist from the usual fabric straps and adds a touch of glamour and femininity to the dress.

9. Princess Tulle Gown with Full-Sleeved Illusion Lace Bodice

La Belle Couture

I love anything with lace and tulle in an A-line silhouette, so it is no wonder that I was drawn to this beautiful dress like bees to honey. The illusion lace bodice and full sleeves offers the perfect balance between sweet and sexy, showing just the right amount of skin while keeping the dress modest and feminine.

10. Sweetheart Ballgown with Intricate Floral Embroidery

Luna Bianca Bridal Boutique

At first glance, there may not seem to be anything special about this dress. But take a closer look and you’ll be charmed by a pattern of intricate, beautiful floral and vine-like embroidered details cascading whimsically from the sweetheart bodice to the hem of the dress.

11. Full Sleeve Illusion Lace Ballgown

My Dream Wedding

First popularised by international designers like Galia Lahav and Berta Bridal, the illusion lace dress trend has become a staple feature in wedding fashion all around the world. Feminine, flirty and downright romantic, this dress trend pairs well with any silhouette, be it a sexy illusion mermaid gown that toes the line between sensual and risqué, or a dreamy tulle ballgown that is dainty, womanly and ethereal.

12. Fit and Flare Embroidered Gown with a Cream Underlay

Seletar Broadway

Dresses with a nude or cream underlay are a great way of bridging that gap between a white wedding gown and a coloured one. They also provide the perfect backdrop for beautiful, intricate lace details to pop and come to life, adding a 3D effect to the dress.

13. Lace Embellished Gown with an Illusion Fit and Flare Skirt

The Aisle Bridal

Show off your long, slender legs without showing too much skin with an illusion skirt that offers a playful peek-a-boo effect.

14. Black Glitter Princess Gown with a Sweetheart Neckline

The Wedding Present

Your wedding day is your time to shine, so don’t be shy – wear the stars on your dress and sparkle the night away in a stunning princess gown with an illusion A-line skirt that adds a playful peek-a-boo effect.

15. Illusion Bodice Princess Gown with Floral Appliqué

WhiteLink Bridal

Summer weddings call for a light and refreshing outfit that is weather and wedding appropriate, and this sweet illusion princess gown fits the bill.

16. Goddess Gown in Tulle

Yvonne Creative Bridal & Photo Studio

I see a grecian goddess when I look at this dress and there is no better time to bring out that sexy goddess in you than your wedding day. Flaunt your skin-kissed skin in that décolletage-flattering deep-V neckline and slender waistline with a cinched waist as you flutter about in a dreamy tulle gown like the one here.

17. Lace Embroidered Mermaid Gown with Layered Skirt

Z Wedding Design

Go with this modern fit and flare silhouette for a mermaid gown that is not too restrictive at the knees but hugs all the right curves. The layered mermaid skirt adds a tinge of whimsical while allowing more freedom of movement while the embroidered lace adds dimension and a subtle sheen to this elegant silhouette.
