An elegant wedding gown is a classic style with clean lines and simple details. They are typically a-line dresses, with plain skirts and long trains. Though some designers are designing trendy dresses, nearly all are featuring elegant wedding gowns that have a timeless look. Perhaps one of the most popular designers is Vera Wang, whose elegant wedding gowns have been popular for years. While her dresses are a lot more expensive, yet their timeless beauty makes the investment worthwhile.
