Choosing Dress Styles

March 18, 2022

Just started looking at wedding dresses and not sure where to begin? Torn between a ball gown and a sheath style dress? Here are some descriptions of dress silhouettes to help you while shopping for the most important dress of your life!

Believe it or not, there are different types of length when it comes to a wedding gown. You can choose a cocktail length, which is just simply above the knee. Knee length is at the knee, while tea length is just below the knee. High-low length is just below the knee in front with a train in the back of your gown. A ballerina length dress is a dress that is cut just above the ankle, perfect for ballerinas!

Sheath

A dress that creates a close silhouette to the body. Typically, the sheath uses charmeuse or a very soft and flowing material that fits close to the body, with some beading on an overlay. The sheath is a perfect fit for casual weddings.

Mermaid

Also known as a fit and flare gown, the mermaid gown looks great on girls with tiny waists and for those who want to show off their curves. Accentuate the waist with a belt for more definition.

A-line

This dress resembles an “A” that creates a long line for your body. This classically elegant gown is universally flattering and will look great!

Ballgown

This gown has a fitted bodice and full skirt. It’s the perfect proportion for any bride with a bustier bosom. If you’ve always dreamed of being a princess, this is the gown for you!

Empire

This gown is flattering because it created a long line and disguises the hips. Extending from the bust line, this shape is youthful and elegant.
