From 1950s style wedding dresses to voluminous ball gowns, we’ve compiled an edit of the 21 hottest tiered wedding dresses.
Blush Pink – Sincerity Bridal
If you’re looking for the perfect pink wedding dress that has just a subtle wash of pink, then the gorgeous style 3890 from Sincerity Bridal is your match made in heaven. The silhouette of this ball gown makes a beautiful statement and the simple strapless neckline lends itself well to the tiered skirt.
Organza Layers – Allure Romance
According to Allure, the skirt of this dress is designed to mimic rose petals with its organza tiers and ruffles. The soft layers cascade from the cinched waistband and the lace sweetheart bodice of the dress is a romantic touch. Wear style 2905 with a pretty, loose hairstyle and minimal accessories.
Boho Beauty – Lillian West
If you’re looking for tiered wedding dresses that have a laidback vibe to them, then consider the lovely style 6413 from Lillian West. The strapless neckline has a subtle peek-a-boo lace lining and the tiers are finished off with a stunning lace hem. We love how this bohemian wedding dress has been styled here with a face framing headband.
Super Soft Layers – Justin Alexander
Justin Alexander never fail to impress and this time its style 8823 that has caught our eye. The soft, graduated tiers look so delicate and pretty thanks to the lace applique detail at the hemlines. The tulle skirt is complemented with a sweetheart lace bodice for a winning mix of textures.
Dramatic Train – Enzoani
We love everything about the Kassandra dress from Enzoani but it’s that long layered train that really grabs attention. The top half of the dress is kept sleek and simple with figure hugging satin and a strapless neckline, leading into that stunning tulle and lace mermaid skirt. Simply breath-taking.
A Touch of Sparkle – Monique Lhullier
Deep breaths as you take a look at this tiered gown from Monique Lhullier – it’s just the most enchanting design. This sparkly wedding dress has a gorgeous scattering of shimmer that makes it look like the bride has been caught in a silver snow storm. The beaded illusion bodice and silver waistband are the perfect match to the organza tiered skirt. We like how it’s been styled here with a long veil for extra drama.
Glamorous Volume – Blue by Enzoani
This ball gown wedding dress is perfect for the bride who has always dreamed of having a fairytale wedding. The Ibanda dress from Blue by Enzoani consists of a sweetheart Guipure lace bodice that is surrounded by voluminous tiers of tulle. Look closer and you can admire the pretty 3-D lace patterns on the bodice.
Perfectly Pleated – Essense of Australia
If you’re looking for tiered wedding dresses that aren’t a ball gown shape, then take a look at the figure hugging D2088 from Essense of Australia. This organza gown caresses curves in all the right places with its ruched pleating and flattering drop waist. The tiered mermaid skirt looks ever so romantic and trails out into a lovely chapel train.
Dramatic Multi Layers – Ellis Bridals
The statement tiers on style 18021 from Ellis Bridals are just divine and they will completely wow your wedding party. The pleated effect of the tulle layers and the embroidered bodice gives the dress a dreamy mix of textures. If you’re worried about the skirt swamping your entire body then fear not – the bodice is corseted to give your top half plenty of definition.
Super Soft Tiers – Blue by Enzoani
Glamorous brides will fall in love with the fabulous Idah style from Blue by Enzoani. The gown has a flattering A-line shape and a drop waist to give you a lovely silhouette, plus the tulle and organza ruffled layers will move beautifully as you walk. If you’re scared of catching your heels in the layers as you walk down the aisle then don’t worry, as the full length skirt will cleverly hide a pair of flat wedding shoes.
Stylish Separates – Ellis Bridals
Bridal separates have become a seriously cool wedding trend as of late, and this is proven by the 18027 skirt from Ellis Bridals. The knee length skirt is made up of beautifully floaty tulle tiers and is the ideal opportunity to show off some statement shoes. Here the skirt has been paired with the 18025 lace corset which complements the skirt to perfection.
Sheer Beauty – Badgley Mischka
Tiered wedding dresses make such a gorgeous bridal statement because of their dramatic shape - the Janet dress from Badgley Mischka is no exception. Sheer layers fall to the floor in a cleverly graduated shape to give you a tall and statuesque figure. We love the edgy addition of the beading at the bodice. Wear the Janet dress with simple sliver accessories.
Cascading Tiers – Enzoani
Make your groom and guests gasp in delight as you enter your wedding dressed in this beauty from Enzoani. This full length ball gown oozes elegance and has an incredible tulle tiered skirt, scattered with delicate lace detail. The gown has a certain vintage appeal to it thanks to the lace and the glamorous silver beading at the bodice – we think it would be perfect for a grand celebration at a venue with a ballroom.
Structured Ruffles – Badgley Mischka
The champagne hue of the Badgley Mischka Irene style is a unique spin on this tiered wedding dress. The colour gives the gown a luxe feel, which is heightened further by the dramatically ruffled organza tiers. The intricately embroidery on the bodice is the sophisticated finishing touch.
Perfectly Pink – Allure Bridals
Vintage elements combine beautifully with this contemporary pink wedding dress from Allure Bridals. Brimming with romance and charm, this style proves that blush pink and white go together wonderfully. The tiered skirt is scattered with white lace detail and set off nicely with a thin silver waistband. Brides looking for wedding dresses with illusion necklines should definitely consider style 9321.
20s Style Tiers – Badgley Mischka
The Julie style from Badgley Mischka is the ideal option for brides who are looking for 1920s inspired wedding dresses. The design has a touch of flapper girl glamour to it with its tall, embellished tiers, complemented with a dramatic ruffled hem. If you’re looking for a more subtle tiered wedding dress then the Julie dress could be the perfect choice.
Endless Ruffles – Mori Lee
Layers upon layers of silky organza layers combine with a touch of sparkle at the bodice to create one dramatic look from Mori Lee. We love the glamour of the fitted bodice which has a corseted fit and a lace up back to draw you in at the waist. Ruffled layers pour from the dropped waist for a truly eye catching look.
Elegant Embroidery – Madeline Gardner
The Carla gown from Madeline Gardner is the tiered wedding dress of our dreams. The corset bodice is designed with a beautiful lace overlay and a lace up back for effortless romance, but the real star of the dress is the amazing tulle skirt. The tiers are so delicate they almost blend into one another and the scattered lace detail is the icing on the cake.
Super Sweet Tea Length – Sweetheart
If you’re looking for an alternative bridal look, then style 6131 from Sweetheart might tickle your fancy. This tea length wedding dress is a whimsical and charming design with its nude coloured hue and 1950s style shape. This shorter tiered dress would be perfect for a sophisticated vintage reception.
Vintage Vixen - Ivory & Co
This vintage style wedding dress has plenty of 1920s appeal with its Great Gatsby inspired design. The Esme dress from Ivory & Co has a tall, column silhouette with its soft, crinkled tiers that lead up to the beaded waistband. If you’re inspired by the styling here, then simply tie your hair into a low bun and add a bejewelled headband for Daisy Buchanan chic.
Blush Pink – David Tutera
Last but by no means least, take a look at style 215262 from David Tutera for Mon Cheri. If you liked the previously featured Essense of Australia mermaid gown but weren’t crazy about the material, then you may prefer this softer lace style. The dress is also available in white and ivory but we’re obsessed with this tea rose version – the colour works so well with the impressive multi-tiered skirt.
