Ballgown weddings dresses are also known as princess wedding dresses. They have a classic fairy tale princess silhouette with a bodice and flared skirt. When people think about wedding dresses, it’s probably the one style most people think about, with good reason.
Ballgown dresses have a huge impact. The detail is saved for the bodice and invisible sleeves, while the tulle skirts enhance the femininity of the design for the perfect romantic look. This dress by Ellis Bridals looks amazing with a veil, but a tiara would also complete the princess look.
Sometimes, less is more which is the case with this design from Kate Edmondson of Edmondson Bridal Couture. The invisible sleeves and neckline are finished with an elaborate choker and cuffs, bringing everything together.
Not every ball gown dress uses tulle for the skirts or flares dramatically from the waistline. Lilian by Amanda Wakely uses their luxurious signature Mikado which gives the dress extra movement as you walk or dance.
The sweetheart neckline is ideal for the ball gown wedding dress. The wrapping vine motif around the bodice and waistline accentuate your curves and covers any hard edges between the bodice and skirt for a soft finish.
The invisible over-skirt carries the floral pattern right to the bottom of the dress which, along with the 3D flowers, creates a whimsical finish to the dress. With a matching mini flower girl dress, you will make a massive impact when you walk down that aisle.
The cloqué fabric creates a huge statement with Elain by Sassi Holford. If the fabric choice isn’t sensational enough, this sleeveless dress also comes with the option of button cuff sleeves for a unique, fairy tale style.
With the cross-over wrap and off-the-shoulder straps, Sapphire by Suzanne Neville creates an elegant neckline. The sweeping lines of the cross-over flow down into the skirt which has hidden pockets. It’s feminine and practical.
