A-line dresses are considered a classic. The dresses are fit through the bodice and hip, then flared out toward the hem. A-line dresses are some of the most popular because they look good on most body types. Almost every designer offers A-line dresses, and the style is compatible with any neckline. A-line gowns come in all colors and materials, making them extremely versatile and a great choice for a bride that wants a classic, tasteful look.
Ballgown dresses are great for the bride that wants to look like a princess on her wedding day. The gowns are fit through the bodice and then flare out dramatically at the hip, into a full skirt. Tulle, layers or even a petticoat can be used to support the skirt of the dress, giving it a fuller, more dramatic look. Ballgowns are great for brides that have narrow hips and wide shoulders since they help balance the body.
Fit and Flare Dresses
Fit and flare dresses are exactly like they sound. The gowns are fit through the upper body and flared at the skirt, similarly to a ballgown, but without the layers or added support for volume. Fit and flare dresses are good at creating a feminine, hourglass shape. Layers, ruffles and embellishments on the bodice are all common in fit and flare gowns.
Mermaid dresses are fit throughout until the knee, when they extend outward dramatically, giving the appearance of a mermaid's tail. The dresses are ideal for brides with hourglass figures or a slimmer body type. The gowns are modern and are often covered with lace, beadwork or other fine detailing.
Sheath gowns have little structure, so they're perfect for outdoor weddings, destination weddings and more casual affairs. Often made of lace or other delicate materials, sheath dresses are perfect for brides with straight body types or more slender figures. The silhouette is particularly popular for bohemian style wedding gowns.
