Ball gowns are a compelling choice for any bride who’s ever dreamed of being a fairytale princess. They are the quintessential wedding day look and the go-to silhouette for so many brides who have been planning their big event since their childhood.
Flowing skirts, beautiful necklines, and various fabrics all come together to create one of these magical, storybook masterpieces. Here are 10 of our favorite ball gowns.
Pnina Tornai gowns are always full of fairy tale romance. And this one is no different. This is a strapless, A-line gown with a sheer bodice and so many gorgeous details.
The design features satin and organza flowers, optional blouson sleeves and a flowing ball skirt that you will love to sashay and sway on the dance floor with.
This is the perfect ball gown for the bohemian bride or the bride that wants to get married in a garden of florals or the bride that wants to make a springtime splash. It’s fit for the catwalk but can be your dream dress for your wedding day.
This is another ball gown filled with flowers but with a more subdued and modern edge. This Lazaro bridal gown is dipped in Ivory and includes larger embroidered 3D floral detailings.
The dress is made of classic tulle and organza layers, it has a strapless sweetheart neckline, features a natural waist, and a traditional train to finish out your walk down the aisle.
Pair this with a classic veil, classic pumps, and a rose bouquet at your side. We would love to see this next to different shades of sage or even blush as the complementary tones and colors of the event.
The Loretta gown from Hayley Paige is sheer magic. It is a modern gown draped in silk radzmir and tulle layers. We are loving the contemporary structure and the gorgeous, accentuating sweetheart neckline.
If you look closely you will also notice that the gown has architecture in mind. It has crisp lines and the bodice is fitted very well for the body. There are cascading layers within the skirt with a horsehair trim for extra voluminousness and bounce.
Truly, it is a near perfect ball gown, dream dress for the bride who has been envisioning her wedding day since she was a little one.
We of course had to throw in a gown with a bit more non-traditional energy. And that’s what this floral beauty really does for us.
It has all the elements of a traditional ball gown but all of them are leveled up a few notches. the gorgeous, colorful pattern, the off-the-shoulder sleeves and gorgeous neckline, and those gorgeous layers too. this dress is simply… gorgeous.
For those with a more bohemian flair or want something more youthful and fun, check out this ball gown and do a twirl or two. You will truly be the stand out of the show in this one.
And finally there’s Estival from Carol Hannah. This design fits more along the lines of modern, but it has a traditional flair that is hard to ignore.
This gown features an Italian tulle draped with embroidery, velvet sashes, and beaded buttons too. There is so much romance hidden throughout these layers. It truly would look like a dream floating on the dance floor.
This is a more subdued ball gown but still has all the elements to make that bold statement you would want when you choose a dress of this size.
