Finding the perfect wedding dress can seem like a daunting task at times. With so many different silhouettes, styles, fabrics and more, it can be hard to find a favorite. When you arrive at your bridal appointment, it’s always good to have an idea in mind of what you’d like, but don’t be afraid of trying on different styles as well. You never know where your dream dress will be hiding! From dramatic mermaid gowns to simple sheaths, here are 7 of our favorite types of wedding dresses.
What bride doesn’t want to feel like a princess on her wedding day? With a full skirt and fitted upper body, it also creates the perfect cinched waistline. You can even layer your ball gown with extra fabric such as tulle or lace for a more dramatic look.
A mermaid dress is definitely one of the most dramatic, but can also be one of the most flattering if you’re looking to show off your curves on your special day. Extremely fitted through the top, a mermaid dress can also help create the illusion of an hourglass shape if you have a more slim or petite figure.
A strapless wedding dress is one of the most popular styles for brides. Not only does it show off your arms and shoulders, but it’s also not as constricting as a sleeved dress. It’s also great for spring and summer weddings, but can be worn in the colder months as well if you’ll be having your ceremony indoors.
A trumpet silhouette is similar to a mermaid style, but with a bit more room for comfort. This dress will have a tighter fit through your chest and waist, before flaring out sightly around the knees. A trumpet style is great for brides who want to show off their curves and still be able to move on the dance floor!
The slim shape of a sheath dress is perfect for brides with a petite figure. This formfitting style can also be worn in nearly any type of fabric such as lace, satin or even some embellished beading. Its shape is also quite easy to move around in so you won’t be stuck feeling constricted all night long.
If you’re not quite ready for a dramatic ball gown, an A-line style is a great middle ground. This silhouette is flattering on nearly everyone, while also giving you plenty of room to move, dance and interact with your guests. You can even add an overlay to your skirt with embellished flowers, beads and more for added style.
For brides who are looking for a more simple silhouette, a backless dress can be a great way to add a touch of extra elegance. You can choose to add some embellished designs to draw attention or keep it simple with a neutral-colored fabric in the back for when you make your grand exit.
