Wedding Gown Silhouettes and What They Say About You

The wedding gown style you choose for one of the most important days of your life says a great deal about your personality and individuality. One can tell a bride’s character far more than just from the theme or venue of a wedding. The wedding dress speaks volumes, and the cut of the wedding dress is the main statement piece. Below are the four top bridal silhouettes and what they may say about you!

A-line: A-line wedding gowns are probably the most popular silhouette among brides. The design is more fitted toward the top with a more flowing skirt. The slight fullness of the skirt ranges widely and depends on the bride’s personal taste.

What does it say about you? You are a classic bride with a bit of an edge. You like having lots of choices to suit your particular style. You love a timeless look, but aren’t afraid of a little drama!

Trumpet: Trumpet, also known as fit and flare and mermaid style gowns, are form fitting through the bodice then flare out around or below the knee. The main difference between a trumpet/fit and flare and mermaid gown is where the flare begins, which in the case of the trumpet style is mid-thigh. A mermaid dress “fishtails” out closer to the floor.

What does it say about you? You are bold and romantic. You love a statement look with a traditional twist. For you, it’s all in the details!

Sheath: A sheath gown, like the trumpet gown, is a tight fitting gown that shows off all the curves! It is semi to very fitted all the way down–straight and body hugging with no waist inseam. What a sheath wedding dress lacks in volume, it makes up for with its versatility.

What does it say about you? You are confident and daring. You love an effortless look and like to keep things simple. You exude modern elegance.

Ball gown: Ball gowns, also known as full skirt gowns, are fitted at the bodice with a cinched waist and very full skirt, which is great for showing off the waistline. They are classic and remain a popular choice among brides as they flatter a variety of body types.

What does it say about you? You are a traditionalist and hopeless romantic. You are Princess. You love a show-stopping look and all the fairytale feels it brings.
