The wedding day. One of things that every girl dream of, not just because they will be “one” with the love of their life, but of course it’s because of wearing the finest dress, and being the most beautiful woman of that day. Who could even resist that?
So I thought it would be nice if I will talk about wedding gowns and show you which ones are my favorites. This post might help you as well choose which one you will have in the future.
This is a collage that contains the most common types of wedding gowns. You can also click on the description so that you can see more designs for each type of wedding gowns.
(From left to right)
Princess/Empire Waist ← (click link for sample)
- Princess are designed to have a high waistline, usually right below the bust. It’s very good for petite figures. Not all Princess/Empire Waist gowns have sleeves, there are different styles and you can check them here.
A line ← (click link for sample)
- A line is the most used type of wedding gown since it fits in almost all body types. It’s somehow similar to the Princess/Empire. The design is very simple yet elegant.
Ballgown ← (click link for sample)
- If you want to have a Disney inspired wedding day then go for Ballgown types of wedding dress.The bottom skirt is wide and it looks “grand”. Just be reminded that this one works for all body types except for the petite ones, but if this is the choice then make sure you have the highest wedding heels!
Mini ← (click link for sample)
- This type of gown is not really used by most brides. But this is ideal for slim figures and if you don’t want something really grand – just simple and casual, then go for minis!
Now, let me show you the last two types of gowns and take note, these are what captured my affection the most.
Mermaid ← (click link for sample)
What I like about Mermaid is that it can emphasize a woman’s curve without letting her flaunt everything. A bride can look gorgeously sexy. Another design can be compared to Mermaid which isTrumpet (click here to check Trumpet designs), but Trumpet flares higher, typically starting from the mid-thigh.I chose this picture because I like my wedding gown to be crafted with lace shaded withchampagne or off white. Oh for the love of vintage!
Sheath/Slip on ← (click link for sample)
Sheaths are drafted to keep everything lean with a figure hugging straight skirt that usually tightens at the waist. I love the fact that it looks so simple but it still have that chic outcome when you wear it!
When it comes to choosing a wedding gown silhouette, make sure that you know your body type, and also what are the body features that you want to emphasize – is it your height? your legs? waist? Also, make sure to check a size chart properly if you’re deciding to have a made to order gown. And most of all, it doesn’t haveto be expensive, as long as you are comfortable wearing it when you walk down the aisle.
