Dress Silhouette Feature – The Beloved Ball Gown Wedding Dress
One of the most traditional, and most easily recognized, wedding dress silhouettes is the beloved ball gown. Many associate the ball gown with something princess-like but that’s not always the case. There are many types of ball gown styles, so we’ll break it down a little further.
What is a Ball Gown Wedding Dress?
A ball gown is pretty easy to spot—just look for a big, full skirt. The skirt typically contains multiple layers of tulle and/or crinoline to help support and shape the skirt.
You’ll also notice ball gowns have a fitted bodice and can range from fabrics like lace, satin or silk. Embellishments like beading or applique are common as well.
We could go on and on about the different types of ball gowns, but we’d rather show you some of our favorite styles instead!
Nothing looks more elegant than a Duchesse satin ball gown. This amazing style by Mikaella features a sweetheart neckline, draped off-the-shoulder sleeves and a cross-over pleated bodice.
A simple yet feminine touch is the beaded belt at the waist. The full, pleated skirt is totally twirl-worthy and ready for hours of dancing. For a modern note, pockets! It’s a beautiful gown all around.
