Wedding Dress Styles.

Wedding Dress Styles - Necklines and Silhouettes


For me, when I think about a classic wedding dress it will be a ballgown silhouette with a sweetheart neckline, lots of beautiful lace, a long train and veil.

Normally in a white or ivory and almost always with a ribbon lace-up back.


A mermaid wedding dress would of course have the classic mermaid silhouette and is probably one of the most flexible when it comes to the neckline style. Although I think it works really well with either a sweetheart or off the shoulder styles.

The mermaid wedding dress is perfect for showing a very feminine shape and works beautifully with a elegant train.


A retro wedding dress would normally have an A line or empire silhouette with a bateau or v-neck and possibly also sleeved.

Most will be in an ivory or off-white to build on that vintage look.


A more transparent lace that falls under it’s own weight. A bohemian wedding dress is likely to have kind of an empire or mermaid silhouette. Possibly with elegant lace sleeves or a v-neck.

These have bee incredibly popular over the last few years and I think will continue to be for a while yet.



When you think about a traditional wedding dress styles you generally picture a ballgown silhouette with a sweetheart neckline in pure white.


A wedding dress fit for a princess, I normally think about this style as the traditional ballgown but with an off the shoulder neckline and on an ivory or cream.

And, of course no princess would be complete without a jewel encrusted tiara.


Keeping with the same theme as the traditional and princess styles again the silhouette would normally be a ballgown but maybe lean more towards a bateau neckline.

As it’s fairytale I think you have a little more latitude with your choice of colours, pastel colours work well but if you want to be a little more adventurous then express yourself freely.
