As you start your search for the perfect wedding dress, first decide on the silhouette. Ballgown wedding dresses, with their dramatic full skirts and waist-cinching bodices, are one of the most popular styles. If you’re looking for something a little sexier, look for a mermaid wedding dress, which hugs your figure and flares out at the mid-thigh. A-line wedding dresses are universally flattering! With the same waist-cinching effect as a ballgown and a flowy, dance-floor-ready skirt, it’s easy to see why brides love this effortless look. Courthouse brides and brides looking for something a little different often reach for short wedding dresses. We especially love tea-length dresses for their elongating effect and nod to vintage wedding dresses.
Since love stories span the ages, we simply adore dreaming up vintage-inspired gowns that align with particular eras. Our 1920s wedding dresses feature intricate beading, fringe, shorter lengths and the vibrant vibe indicative of the flapper era. You’ll also find tea-length dresses and other styles decked out with filmy, floaty overlays that add an angelic aura to the look.
One of 2018’s biggest trends is fitted sleeve gowns. There are so many ways for sleeves to give an appearance of luxury when made with lace or other materials and augmented with pearls or beading. The sleeves work best when they stand out in contrast to the gown material, or they are an extension to another element in the front of the dress, such as a lace illusion neck.
