Affordability, accessibility, and elegance, truly never looked so good as it does on this find from David’s Bridal. The hint of champagne, the jewel, and that neckline all come together to make quite the vintage splash.

This design features a bit of magic in all the corners including an off-the-shoulder neckline, tulle skirt, shimmery taffeta, ruched bodice, and a sparkling brooch at the hip.

There is something so regal and so Hollywood about this gown – and it can go either way depending on how you decide to style the entire ensemble. It’s quite the choice for your more formal celebration.

Morilee brings us a gorgeous, taffeta ball gown to show off as well. And it falls into the more classic, bridal category.

Style 4524 features a simple, sweetheart neckline, full ball gown and A-line silhouette, a ruched bodice, natural waistline, and a sparkling belt as well. The dress comes in a natural ivory or white.

It’s important to note that the bodice is in corset form and can really cinch your waist and keep the structure of the gown intact all night long and all throughout your dancing and celebrating. It pairs nicely with a classic veil and sparkling jewels as well.

Lazaro never, ever fails when it comes to creating high-quality and bold ball gowns. Taylor is no exception to that rule. It’s versatile for all bodies and flattering as well.

You can order the gown without the skirt if you’re looking for slightly more coverage. We also love it paired with golden accessories – including strappy pumps.

Taffeta does not have to be used in only ball gown designs, in fact, you can make it a short look as well. Olivia Bottega took that idea and ran with it – which is how we got this stunning Mariell dress!

The design features shining taffeta, long sleeves with flirty puffy shoulders, a modern square neckline, and a length made to show off those gams!

Pair the dress with a birdcage veil. Or a pop of color within your pumps. Metallic jewels. Or even bold makeup. Inevitably, it’s a fun design that you can accessorize and style any which way you’d like!

The Ashton design includes a modern boat neck, a deep, plunging V-neckline, illusion sides, a full, ball gown skirt, and pockets too – which we know are a fan favorite to all.

The gown was made to wear with a simple veil and would look great with an encrusted or ribboned belt. Slip on some traditional pumps and add your pearls.
