Which Wedding Dress Silhouette Is Your Style?

It's easy to figure out which bridal fashions you like when you see photos of them, but if you are trying to describe a dress, it can be difficult to convey exactly what you you have in mind. Knowing some terms used to describe them can be extremely helpful. Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches has listed the more popular bridal gown shapes below. You can find all of these at our South Florida wedding dress store

Ball Gown

Straight out of a classic fairy tale, the ball gown is generally thought of as what a princess would wear. It is a timeless look that will always be in style. Ball gowns have a fitted bodice with a full skirt that flares out at the waist. These dresses seem to float ethereally down the aisle. 


For a little less bounce, but still a full, beautiful skirt, there is the A-line silhouette. You get the fitted bodice, and the skirt gradually flows out from the waist, resembling the shape of an upper case letter "A." This shape can be a little easier to move around in than the ball gown. 

Tea Length

If you prefer a shorter wedding dress, a tea length gown is a lovely solution. It will fall between your ankle and knee, perfect for showing off a pair of fabulous shoes. 


Trumpet silhouettes allow you to show off your curves while still giving you a flowy skirt at the bottom. It is fitted down through the body, but flares out around mid-thigh. 


This is very similar to the trumpet style, but the skirt flare happens a bit lower, at the knee. It is sometimes also referred to as a fit-and-flare. It will enhance an hourglass shape.  


Flowing straight from the neckline to the hem, a sheath wedding dress can look both casual and sultry. The fabric used will make a big difference in the feel of the gown. It tends to follow your natural shape and can have a lengthening effect on the body.  

You will probably have a favorite dress silhouette picked out before you come in to our West Palm Beach bridal boutique, but keep an open mind when you begin trying the dresses on. The same dress can look completely different on different body types. What looks amazing on one woman may not work on another. The helpful consultants at Bridal Couture of the Palm Beaches are happy to work with you to find the perfect wedding dress that will seem like it was made just for you.
