Not every bride wants to go the modern or out of the box route. A lot of brides still choose to go the traditional way by having their wedding in the church their parents got married in, not seeing the groom at all before the big day, something old, something new, something borrowed and something blue also almost always makes the traditional list. And when these brides go dress shopping they want their dresses to also look the part so they can have a complete and holistic traditional experience.
Thank goodness there are still incredible designers out there who design dresses for exactly this type of wedding. They keep it simple and beautiful without creating gowns that are too over the top and modern for these old school brides.
Here are some incredible traditional dresses to consider:

Maggie Sottero’s Jayleen

Some of these gowns have a bit of a modern feel to them but they still stay true to the dresses that made were back in the day.
