If you’re a confident, modern woman with a sexy sense of spirit, you should embrace the style you love every day—including your wedding day! If you’re ready to take your wedding day style by the reigns and blow everyone’s minds with a plunging V-neckline, an open back, or a high slit, check out these 11 wedding dresses for the daring bride who’s not afraid to flaunt her curves or show some skin!
11 Wedding Dresses for the Daring Bride
Ladies, let’s get one thing straight: sexy doesn’t mean sleazy. I’m not suggesting that you perform your nuptials in a strapless, skin-tight mini dress (that is, unless you want to). What I am suggesting is that you embrace your personal style and find a wedding dress that makes you feel like the glamorous woman you are. Would it be you to wear an A-line gown with a bateau neckline? Probably not. Would you feel like yourself if you made your way down the aisle in a short sleeve princess ball gown? Highly unlikely. If you prefer a touch of sex appeal to classic, timeless tradition, these 11 wedding dresses are ones you’re sure to love!
1. Go Ahead, Show Some Skin
It’s true, there’s something sexy about leaving something to the imagination. No matter what the occasion is, there’s no need to flaunt skin from head to toe—you should always aim to play up one feature or another. If you have super long legs that you never want to hide, try a mini dress with long sleeves. If you’ve got incredible cleavage, opt for a plunging V-neckline with a long skirt that covers your bottom half. If you’ve spent hundreds of hours working on your six pack abs, consider a two-piece design or a cropped top that calls attention to your best assets. No matter what your favorite body part is, it’s okay to flaunt it and show some skin on your wedding day.

Sure, the front has a pretty sweetheart neckline that plunges a bit lower than most, but the real highlight of this dress is the racy open back. In a sheath silhouette made from lace and English net, this gown strikes the perfect balance between sexy and sophisticated, making it ideal for the modern bride who wants a classic look with a modern twist.

Opting for a short hemline is perhaps the easiest way to pull of a sexy look for your wedding day. Whether you’re having a casual affair or a somewhat traditional celebration, the Wedding Shoppe offers a variety of short wedding dresses for the daring bride who wants to show her legs!

3. Take the Plunge In Front, Back, or Both
Whether you prefer a dress that plunges in the front, dips low in the back, or lets you show skin from every angle, plunging necklines are much-loved by brides who want to flaunt their best assets. From fit and flare silhouettes to sleek sheath designs, plunging necklines and low plunge backs can turn the simplest of silhouettes into eye-catching designs.

4. Two Pieces May Be Better Than One
While you don’t always have to show skin to show your sexy sense of style, the right two-piece design will let you do exactly that. From two-piece gowns that are made to go together to separate pieces that can be mixed and matched with different tops and bottoms, the two-piece silhouette is perfect for the bride who just can’t resist a crop top.

Pairing the Alliett skirt and the Jude top is a surefire way to exude elegance, confidence, and sex appeal on your wedding day.
