Pleats: The New Bridal Trend

Ruffles were the bridal accent of decades past. But pleats are taking over as the texture of choice in modern bridal styles.

You may be thinking that pleats are a fashion accent of the past, but these gowns show that pleats are back and better than ever! Chic, stylish, pleated texture that adds structure and romance to any bridal style. From bold accents to tired skirts, we are loving the return of this classic look.

I love stillwhite. I recommend it to literally everyone. The wedding dress industry is wild - thousands of dollars for a dress you'll wear once?? So having a worldwide(ish) platform where people can resell them is amaazing. The platform overall is great. Zero complaints. But the search is the best. You can filter by almost anything. Searching on other websites, comparatively, is so disappointing. Seriously, 5 stars.

I thought this was a wonderful way to get a beautiful dress I loved that was out of my budget for a price that was much better and the dress could be just as beautiful as if I had gotten it at the full price.
