Wedding Wednesdays: Modern Traditionalist Bride

Introducing…Wedding Wednesdays! Each Wednesday we’ll be featuring a different wedding trend from Kleinfeld Bridal, New York’s premiere designer gown destination.


The dress is easily one of the biggest decisions to be made when planning a wedding and it can be hard to choose between a classic or modern style. We found a few Kleinfeld dresses that combine traditional and modern elements beautifully. The Modern Traditionalist bridal trend is great for brides that want to incorporate trends while still maintaining that timeless look.


This Dennis Basso long sleeve gown is hand beaded and features an embroidered illusion bodice. The natural waist line keeps the focus on the beautiful detail of the lace and simple lines that the tulle skirt creates. The bodice can be lined for those who want to leave a little more to the imagination, or kept sheer for the full effect. This style is perfect for the princess bride who also wants to feel sexy on her big day.  Get the laced look for your bridal shower too with this Shoshanna Blush Wedding Lace Dress. Sexy and sophisticated, the Nicole Miller All Laced Up Dress will ensure a good night with friends at your bachelorette party!




This Pnina Tornai dress combines a traditional sweetheart neckline and full a-line skirt with a modern deep-v and feathers. The jeweled bodice and skirt are accented with feathers and crystals, a huge trend in bridal right now. Fashion forward brides will love this style for its fresh perspective on the sweetheart neckline and a-line skirt. For your bridal shower, wear this Cushnie Et Ochs My Boyfriend Dress for a chic update to the classic strapless dress. To keep the Modern Traditionalist trend going throughout your wedding celebration too, wear this Carlos Miele Ivory Frosting Petal Dress for your rehearsal dinner.




This Pnina Tornai gown is a great alternative to strapless as it shows off the boned corset with a sheer mid-section. The fun and flirty skirt has dimension and softness to create a modern princess look. We love the jeweled illusion bodice and the jeweled straps add extra sparkle for this bride. To try this trend for your bridal shower, try the Lela Rose Ivory Ombre Dress. If you love the jeweled detail of this Pnina Tornai gown, rent the Badgley Mischka Nude Sequin Cluster Sheath that will have you sparkling for your Bachelorette or rehearsal dinner.




This Pnina Tornai ivory silk satin organza gown has a drop waist a-line with three dimensional hand rolled detail. The modern twist on a traditional dropped waist a-line is a total show stopper. We love how the dimension is draped by hand and molded into a gorgeous floral motif. The bolero, which is detachable and sold separately, offers two looks in one for this bride.  If you love the 3-D effect of this gown, rent the Tibi Odetta Cloud Dress for your bridal shower for a modern update to a classic, elegant style. For a twist of intrigue, try this Robert Rodriguez Black Label One-Shouldered Dress for your rehearsal dinner.
