Your wedding day is meant to be the most joyous and unique day of your life. So why not wear exactly what you want to feel like most beautiful and glamorous version of yourself, rather than what you apparently should?

Conventional dresses are now being renounced by modern brides who want to imbue all of their personality into their big day look. It’s officially time to update that classic wedding saying: something old, something new, something borrowed – how about something barely-there? We’re talking about sheer gowns. Formerly a controversial look for your wedding day, now, sheer bridal styles are en vogue, and there are so many ways – or degrees of sheerness – to wear it. At Galia Lahav, there are stunning dress designs perfect for everyone to stand out on their big day.

Even more, our dedication to customization extends beyond mere aesthetics; inclusivity is at the heart of everything we do. Not only do we offer a diverse range of sheer panel options to accommodate various skin tones (from darker hues to lighter, more translucent variations), but we also provide the flexibility to adjust the level of opacity according to individual tastes. From subtle, more demure panelling to totally risqué transparent looks, our artisans meticulously tailor each panel to custom-fit the bride’s specifications, personality and desired aesthetic. We believe that every bride deserves to feel confident, radiant, and utterly exquisite on her special day. Here are 5 ethereal sheer dresses for the bride who knows what she wants.


The jaw-dropping structure of this dress has to be seen to be believed – this is not one for the demure bride but for the bride who wants all eyes on her. The low-rise nearly-naked back is elevated with intricate and carefully placed beading, perfectly toeing the line of delicacy and sensuality. For added drama, add the high-neck pearled bolero top as well as the bicep-grazing gloves with pearl accents.


This enchanting dress is for the bride who wants everyone to bear witness to her fairytale ending. The sultry, sheer waist-exposing cut-outs on the bodice add a level of daring bravado contrasted with the ethereal layers of floral lace sweeping the floor.


Now, sheer doesn’t have to be all about the illusion of being naked, but can also be an edgier nod to femininity. This head-turning, floor-skimming ball gown is comprised of romantic floral embroidery with the sheer panels on the sides and back revealing exposed boning. Talk about upping the ante.


This dreamy aisle-to-afterparty minidress comes with a dramatic, detachable tulle trumpet skirt, but it’s the playful sheer detailing that imbues the look with luxurious texture. Sheer, but not as you know it. Skin peeks out through beaded French lace at the sides and opulent panelling at the hip.


When better than your wedding day to wear your heart on your sleeve? And this dress is the epitome of that mindset. The corseted gown is comprised of exquisite 3D embroidered lace with sheer side panels that dip all the way to the thigh. But there’s no doubt the show-stopper is the gathered tulle gloves with floral and crystal embellishments giving the illusion of beautiful flower petals dancing down the arms all the way to the fingers.
