Similar to ball gowns, A-line wedding dresses are fitted through the waist or hips before extending into a full skirt, creating a beautiful A-shaped silhouette. The skirt on a simple A-line dress is less flared than a ball gown and looks flattering on all shapes and sizes.
This striking gown evokes fairytale magic. With its fitted bodice and dramatically flared skirt, it’s no wonder so many brides dream of wearing this silhouette on their special day. Ball gown wedding dresses are a stunning choice for many brides, however they can overwhelm a petite frame.
Ethereal and enchanting, mermaid wedding gowns dazzle with timeless elegance. This fitted gown hugs the length of the body before flaring out at the knees in a romantic skirt. This fit-and-flare wedding dress style, also called a trumpet wedding dress, is best suited for hugging slender frames, hourglass figures, and full-figured curves.
Effortlessly stunning, this bridal style provides a tailored, narrow silhouette from neckline to hem. Simple sheath wedding dresses are traditionally lighter than their full-skirted sisters and offer a body-hugging silhouette. This straight wedding dress looks best on slender, petite, and hourglass frames.
Growing in popularity for casual weddings, pre-wedding events, and as a second-dress option for the reception, short wedding dresses bring versatility to the party. From true knee-length skirts evocative of mid-Century fashion, to tea-length wedding dresses with hemlines hitting between the knee and ankle, to high-low styles cut shorter in front and longer in back, short bridal dresses are perfect for showing off your legs, dazzling shoes, and epic dance moves.
If a traditional gown isn’t for you, create your own unique wedding day style with chic bridal separates. Options include two-piece wedding dresses fashioned from a top and skirt, as well as classic suiting pieces like tops, pants, jackets and skirts. Bridal separates are a modern way to highlight your best assets, flatter your figure, and express your personal style.
One of the freshest trends in bridal fashion, the wedding jumpsuit is almost universally flattering because it creates a long line on the body and comes in a variety of necklines, sleeves and even pant widths. A one-piece jumpsuit offers brides a stand-out style that highlights the narrowest part of the body – the waist – and creates the illusion of long legs, making you look and feel great on your wedding day.
