A bride’s wedding day is one of the few times she can get away with wearing a formal dress that falls all the way to the floor. Unless you’re a red-carpet walker, it’s a rare occasion when you slip-into a gown that can trail behind you with romance and drama. And on your wedding day, we say, “Go big, or go home.”
It’s a traditional element of the “perfect” bridal gown. A floor-length design is what is customary and we’re definitely an advocate for it. Here are 10 of our favorite, gorgeous floor length wedding dresses!
This dramatic Mark Zunino gown offers a stunning, chic finish and timeless appeal. It’s made with Italian, jersey fabric, simple spaghetti straps, and a square neckline.
We love the show-stopping feature of the longer train even with the simplistic design. It’s easy to fit into any style wedding or even a destination event.
It’s also incredibly versatile for those who want to personalize their look with specific accessories or even a bit of color. Of course, for a black-tie celebration – just think of how incredible this gown would look alongside fashion-forward, black bridesmaids’ dresses.
Is this Lillian West design not absolutely precious? It’s a youthful dress, skims the floor so beautifully (think about dancing!), and is filled with classic, bridal style.
The tulle overlay makes it extra romantic, and we are loving the sweetheart neckline that tops off all of the floral details. The cap sleeves give it a more unique appeal as well.
If you’re worried about the train being too long here, it’s not. It’s chapel length so it’s easy to get around without forgoing the formal effect. We love the color combination in this design as well which include ivory, champagne, and a nude tone.
It’s really hard not to fall in love with any and every Pnina Tornai gown. She is a designer that’s known for knowing how to create a moment and dress a bride. And this design is no exception.
The sleeves, the sparkling, detailed skirt, and that corset bodice – it sounds like a lot but it’s not over-the-top in taste. It’s a memory-making stunner of a wedding gown.
Find a location nearby to at least experience trying on a Pnina gown. She truly is one of the best designers in the wedding world – known for her exquisite accents and features on Say Yes to the Dress.
This golden beauty is really something special and unique for your big day. Lazaro knows how to make show stopping masterpieces. Although it strays from classically bridal, it is timeless in style and holds an Old Hollywood appeal.
It features a trumpet silhouette, metallic detailing, and a sweetheart neckline with its jeweled straps. How incredible would this be for your walk down the aisle?
If you’re looking for something that doesn’t fit in the traditional, ball gown category and want something with a tinge more sophistication, try the Yasmeen on for size.
Smooth, sultry, and sophisticated, this Romona Keveza design will make you feel like a million bucks.
It has such an architectural finish that it’s truly perfect for minimalistic brides with a modern vision for their event.
We love the asymmetry in the shoulders which adds a visual interest to the neckline and brings the eye up to focus. In addition to the the cinching of the waistline, and of course, we love that floor-length gown creating the formal look you need for your big day.

Petra, the Allure Bridals ball gown of your dreams, is dipped in classic bridal spirit and gorgeous, lace appliques. The horsehair skirt creates the drama you want from a princess-inspired design and the beading gives you a pinch of glam.
There’s not much you could still be wanting if you decide on a design like Petra.
It’s a true example of the iconic ball gown style and we are here for it!
Pair this with an extra long veil for the ultimate walk down the aisle. And don’t forget your dripping, rose-filled bouquet.
The Tiffany is dipped in blue (it also comes in a traditional white shade) and filled with layers of English net.
The peplum is detachable – which we love for giving different looks throughout the event. The Tiffany gown features some of the best, classic bridal accents including a natural waistline, soft scoop neckline, and a semi-sheer bodice.
What really takes this over-the-top is the “tidal blue” shade, but why not go a more non-traditional route for those wanting to make an actual splash down the aisle? This color palette will be sure to make a big impact on your special day.
Sloane is such a unique gown when it comes to bridal designs. As its description states, “when it comes to pearls, the limit does not exist.” This gown is covered with them – from top to all the way to its floor-length bottom.
The sheer, high neckline is such a modern, fashion-forward “it girl” feature and the slip underneath is removable. Which we love, because that means you can create different looks with these pieces long after the I do’s have been said.
Willowby is under the Watters brand as well – so it’s an affordable and accessible dress!
Another ball gown that we are swooning for, the Asteria may be one of our personal favs. Milla Nova makes incredible pieces that shine bright all over the world – and there’s an air of Euro-flair hidden within the sewings of this one.
It is a satin, strapless gown with a sweetheart neckline and a slightly beaded bodice. It’s subtle in its charm and you can personalize it with your own style – from hair, to makeup, to accessories without pulling away from its original design.
Take a look at this ball gown and don’t forget to take a peek at its back bow!
