One of our favorite hallmarks of summer is the all-too-appropriate return of dreamy dresses created from the most beautiful flowing fabrics. One such style is the Grecian goddess gown. These gowns are known for their one-shoulder, v-neck, and strapless styles that cascade romantically to the floor. Aside from being perfect for summertime soirees, we love that with the addition of beaded cap sleeves, a Grecian dress can become instantly vintage, while a simple spaghetti strap, empire waist style lends itself so well to an oceanside ceremony.

The gallery is full of our favorite Grecian gowns that will make you look like a goddess. Take a look!
