A Beginner’s Guide to Finding the Bridal Gowns

When you shop for your wedding, you will discover that experience and feeling of wonderment and excitement. Finding the perfect bride dressing gown to design a custom-made wedding dress with a professional and finding a favorite at the bridal appointment can be hard. While you might already have an idea where you are the star of your movie, it can be an ordeal to choose “the One” wedding dress with so many silhouettes, styles, fabrics, and more. A pro tip is to be aware of your shape and know what styles will enhance and flatter the shape of your body and draw attention to the most flattering areas and decrease the attention where it’s not wanted. Here’s what you need to know about wedding dress silhouettes and designs: 


  • Ballgown 


This wedding dress has a contoured fitted bodice and a dramatic full-length skirt. If you’ve dreamt of having your princess moment, then this silhouette is made for you. A ball gown can easily accentuate the waist with a full skirt over the torso, prioritize bust support, and is ideal for slender or pear-shaped body types. 


  • Sheath gown 


The slim shape of this wedding gown is ideal for brides with petite figures. While the sheath wedding gown does not conceal major problem areas like a larger lower body, it hides minor flaws if you choose a structured style that will stay intact, but the slip style will be unforgiving. Giving an illusion of a defined waist, it can accentuate curves of boxy figured body types. This custom wedding dress can be tailored with lace, satin, or with some embellished beading. The shape is easy to move around in, so you don’t feel constricted on the most special day of your life. 


  • A-Line Gown 


This style is an amalgamation of sheath and ball gown silhouettes. With a classic and simple style ethos, the A-line dress flares out from the waist and creates an illusion of curves on a narrow frame. It is often known as the universally flattering silhouette; it is perfect for all body shapes and wedding themes, from bohemian, classic to beachy. With minimal adjustments to the neckline, waistline, or skirt, you can easily accentuate your best features and hide those you’re insecure about! A-line wedding dress often features organza, tulle but you can also customize these with structured fabrics like Mikado silk. 


  • Mermaid style gown 


The mermaid wedding tightly fits throughout the bust and torso areas- like shapewear. If you’re looking for a dress to accentuate your natural curves, look no further. This wedding gown will create an hourglass figure’s illusion; however, due to the restrictive silhouette and design, you might feel constrained since there is not enough leg space to move freely. You can incorporate tulle, ruffled skirts to add another brownie pint to your quintessential wedding look. 


  • Trumpet style gown 


This wedding dress is similar to a mermaid-styled gown but gives a little more comfort by the semi-full skirt, creating enough space for your legs to move freely. The upper half is tighter through the chest and waist. If you want to accentuate your natural curves and still reign on the dance floor comfortably, then this dress is just made for you. 

From choosing classic white wedding dresses to adding a more peppy wedding silhouette, you should feel confident, beautiful, and comfortable when you put them on. Overall, the important thing is not to limit your envisioned preference and be open to trying different wedding dress styles to see which suits your body type the best. Finding the right wedding gown might seem overwhelming at a few bridal appointments, doing your research to know what styles and silhouettes fit you the best will help your cause!
