Dress Silhouette Feature – The A-line Wedding Dress

Dress Silhouette Feature - The A-Line Wedding Dress

For a more traditional bride, an A-line wedding dress is a classic silhouette. It’s not as grand as a ball gown but it’s a step above a sheath or column style and the options are endless.

What is an A-Line Wedding Dress?

An A-line wedding dress has a fitted bodice and a full skirt that begins at the natural waist. The gown’s shape ends up resembling a capital “A”, hence the name.

A-line gowns can vary from elegant and romantic to chic and sophisticated. It’s totally versatile from the variety of neckline, fabric and design options and we can’t wait to dive right into the beautiful photos below!

1. Emma – Enzoani

Fresh from Enzoani’s 2023 wedding collection is the Emma gown. This romantic gown boasts a curved neckline leading to delicate off-the-shoulder straps. Exposed boning in the bodice really accentuates the bride’s waist and the high corset back adds a touch of modesty.

The true beauty of this gown, in our opinion, is the soft, sparkling floral and Chantilly lace that cascades down the elegant tulle skirt. It’s definitely a Princess-like dress and allows the bride to look and feel ethereal on her big day.

2. Wesley – Jenny Yoo

Heading in a more sophisticated direction is this bold and beautiful Wesley gown from Jenny Yoo. We absolutely love the shape of this gown, thanks to the clean lines and seam detail in the skirt. The plunging neckline really brings your eyes to the bride’s curves.

The real stunner here are the dramatic silk chiffon panels from the shoulders to create a modern cape look. A chapel-length train completes this daring yet classic look.
