The benefits of each Wedding Dress Silhouette
It’s time! You have the perfect partner, the perfect ring, and now it’s time to find the perfect dress! Perhaps you’ve imagined a ball gown for your special day—or have been mesmerized by mermaid gowns for the last decade. There are so many choices, but every dress has its special features that are worth noting. To help you discover the dress that’s meant to be worn on your special day, here are the benefits of each dress style, and where they fit best!
- Ball gowns: Classic! The vision of Princess Diana stepping out of the carriage on her wedding day; a long, ornate train that makes your entrance one to remember! Ball gowns evoke the feeling of royalty. If your wedding venue includes high ceilings, lots of sophisticated décor, or feels like you have stepped into a fairytale, a ball gown should be on your list of gowns to try on!
- A-line gowns: the ball gown’s little sister! This dress silhouette is perfect if you want something that feels “bridal” without so much volume. Brides often pick this dress because they’re easier to dance in, aren’t as restrictive as trumpet or sheath dresses, but also aren’t as heavy as a ball gown. Another benefit of A-line dresses is that they fit in almost any wedding style! You’ll have a fantastic selection to choose from whether you’re getting married in a barn, museum, hotel, or garden. It is truly the most versatile style of wedding gown there is!
- Trumpet/Mermaid gowns: show stoppers! Trumpet and mermaid gowns are similar silhouettes that have gained a good bit of popularity in the last decade. Why? They hug every curve of your body and often show off all the hard work you’ve done leading up to the wedding. Whether they’re satin or lace, mermaid gowns are a top pick because they are SO romantic! They move beautifully as you walk, showing different aspects of the design of your gown.
- Sheath gowns: for the modern bride. Sheath gowns are defined by the way they float just ever so slightly from your body. Their shape is simple and understated, but that doesn’t mean the designs on the dress are. Sheath dresses are easier to walk in and aren’t heavy to carry around with you as you dance the night away! Sheath dresses can be often found at small, intimate weddings. They also make great options for reception dresses because of how effortlessly they look on brides.
