Remember how in Carrie Bradshaw in "Sex and the City" you still got married not in Vivienne Westwood's outfit, but in a no name suit bought at a sale and, of course, your favorite Manolo Blahnik shoes? More than 10 years have passed since the release of the film, and stars and fashion bloggers continue to repeat the heroine. Recently, for example, stylist Vika Romanenko posted on Instagram a photo after the wedding, wearing a laconic Zara dress and Chanel shoes.
“I decided to spend money on shoes rather than a dress,” Vika wrote on Instagram.
Minimalist outfits from the mass market, which can then be worn in everyday life, are a wedding trend in recent years. Why not all girls dream of going down the aisle in a haute couture dress, we asked Anastasia Mironova, editor-in-chief of the online magazine for brides TOP15MOSCOW.

- I think the trend for inexpensive wedding dresses is great. Thanks to him, girls see that they are not obliged to correspond to any traditional image of the bride, but can remain themselves, demonstrate their individuality. It appeared a long time ago, but now it is gaining momentum. Two years ago, everyone was still amazed how Emily Ratajkowski wore a mustard Zara suit instead of a white dress for the wedding. And today we see that many people choose democratic and laconic outfits and look stylish in them - I really liked the wedding image of stylist Vika Romanenko in a Zara dress and Chanel shoes.
I think there are several reasons for this wedding trend. First, we fell in love with naturalness, harmony, individuality, minimalism. Modern brides often want to be themselves at the wedding, and not "play princess." They would rather dance all night in a light white sundress than sit at a banquet in a heavy skirt. Secondly, everyone began to think about ecology, reasonable consumption, and take the things they buy more seriously. In this sense, it is more logical to purchase a dress that you can wear after the celebration.
Of course, the classics will always live - there are many brides who choose "traditional" wedding dresses and look magical in them. And I understand them too: there is something enchanting in lace, shiny tulle, embroidery and the same fluffy skirt. But often even classic brides want to change their solemn look to something simpler and more comfortable. Therefore, today, at most weddings, the girl after the ceremony changes into a second, lighter dress.
Where to look for lightweight wedding dresses? Not only at Zara! Of course, I would advise you to go to your favorite clothing stores, but still, do not bypass wedding salons and ateliers. They have sensed the trend towards minimalism for a long time and now offer many concise and simple options.
