Wedding Dresses for the Cancer Bride

Find your nearest boutique

Don’t judge a Cancer by its shell! That’s your mantra from June 22 to July 22 when this water sign reigns supreme.

You, dear Cancers can often be on the emotional side, letting your heart make decisions before your brain is able to weigh in. This sensitive nature can sometimes be mistaken for being moody (or crabby), but the crustacean is actually a lot like the crabs they’re represented by; it takes some skill to get past those quick-moving claws and it can be challenging to figure out what’s underneath their hard shells. But once that shell is cracked, Cancer’s unwavering loyalty and commitment becomes evident. Deep down, Cancers are actually really compassionate and very much in touch with their spiritual, mystical side.

A Cancer bride is primed and ready to throw the wedding of her dreams, complete with little touches that make guests feel so welcome and wowed by each of the thoughtful details. But what about the perfect wedding dress for this summer sign? Well, let’s just say they’re just as unique as your zodiac.

For a zodiac sign that’s ruled by the chest, a corset with a sweetheart neckline is bound to appeal to the Cancer bride. Go full glam in this ball gown that shines more than a disco ball with rectangular crystals—a tiny detail that adds a slightly retro touch to this modern design. Balance out the sparkle with a layered tulle skirt, and then amp it all back up with matching tulle gloves with even more geometric crystals.

The Alejandra makes an impact from every angle. The sheer open back on this trumpet gown features sheer floral embroidery that climbs up the spine and both shoulders. From the front, the duo cutouts carve out an hourglass shape in silver embroidered lace in a multi-dimensional fabric. And the billowing lantern sleeves in sparkling tulle drum up attention on the sides, finished off with oversized bows.

The combination of sheer panels, 3-D floral embroidery and a trumpet gown with asymmetric tiers of tulle just might make a bride emotional. It’s just the thing that’ll crack Cancer’s hard shell and bring out their soft, sentimental side. The off-the-shoulder straps, which could easily be mistaken for floral vines, can be paired with illusion tulle gloves with even more florals and a sprinkling of crystals.

This is a dress that makes the most out of negative space. The sheer cutouts create a stunning silhouette on the front of the bodice, while the plunging open back leaves room for a backdrop necklace to catch the light. Those three threads of beads look just like glistening drops of water (a gorgeous hat tip to our water sign). The rest of the Shirley gown shimmers, with an embroidered tulle overlay on a cream silk mermaid gown. Needless to say, this number looks and feels like a work of art.

A mermaid gown that’s minimal but far from simple will steal the show — especially if you choose to host your nuptials in your very own backyard. Or any place you consider to be your backyard, like the local vineyard or the beach you grew up at. The body-skimming seams of this crepe number are endlessly flattering, with scalloped trim cups, cathedral-length and a coordinating silk flower choker allowing more styling options.

Channel the feminine energy of your sign with a wedding gown that’s downright delicate and graceful. Okay, and a little sensual too. The sheer corset and full skirt is crafted out of a shimmering tulle that’s balanced with a mid-length train and a risqué front slit. Top it off with the coordinating bolero and matching gloves that adds a touch of edge. It’s romantic, it’s sexy, it’s multidimensional and a total dream dress.

Effortless beaded lace with a cinched waist to emphasize on the ballgown look. It’s proof that this water sign doesn’t need to have a beachside wedding or choose shell-adorned accessories to bring the ocean to her nuptials. A simple nod to the aquatic will do. With a side slit, beaded straps and a sweetheart corset, it doesn’t get more Cancerian than this.
