16 Classy Wedding Dresses with Straps for Summer Weddings

For brides who aren’t keen on strapless wedding dresses, but also don’t want to wear a long sleeved wedding dress, a wedding dress with straps is the perfect answer.

Straps are a dainty way to add delicate detailing to your wedding dress, and on a practical level, they mean there’s no chance of your wedding dress falling down, no matter how hard you hit the dance floor.


Thin straps balance out the full skirts of princess wedding dresses for an enviable silhouette, or if you’re wearing a fitted wedding dress, straps keep your gown extra slinky.

For a traditionally bridal look, you can’t go wrong with a classic lace wedding dress with straps. Pair with loosely tousled hair to bring to look bang up to date.
