Wedding Dresses for a Casual Style Personality


As you know, for the next few weeks we will be discussing 7 different Style Personalities and how they will influence your wedding gown choices. Yesterday we discussed the Dramatic Style Personality and the types of wedding dresses that will work for you, featuring dresses from SmartBride Boutique.

Today, we are featuring the Casual Style Personality.

Jennifer Aniston

Style Icons:

Jennifer Aniston, Jennifer Garner, Reese Witherspoon

Style Elements:

  • Comfortable fabrics such as cotton or jersey
  • No fuss – If you are fussing with the dress, put it back on the hanger
  • Practical looks


  • Natural colours - cream, ivory, champagne

If you tend to gravitate towards wash and wear clothing and want to stick to this style for your wedding dress, look for:

  • A comfortable fit
  • Natural fabrics like cottons or silks, that are light and breathable
  • Minimal details

If this is your style, the dresses below are great options for you. Click on the image and you will go directly to the listing. Simple and comfortable dresses are the best choices; nothing that you would have to fuss with all night. Look for a dress that you wouldn’t even have to think about testing to see if you could sit down in.
