What wedding dress style should I wear 

Updated: Jan 13, 2020

How many wedding dresses will you have to go through to find 'the one'? Could be ten, could be the first wedding dress you try on! Whatever the case, this is probably the most particular and memorable piece of your big day. Be it a laid-back beach wedding or a huge, society-will-be-buzzing type affair you're dreaming of, there's a dress just perfect for your nuptials and your personality.

Empire, mermaid, A line, sheath gown, ballgown, trumpet... the list goes on of dress styles and names of wedding dresses to choose from.

While it’s best to pick a style that you feel most comfortable wearing, there are other things to consider as well. If you’re having a beach wedding, then perhaps you’d prefer a lightweight material. Whereas if your wedding is formal, then you’ll want more bling.

For formal weddings, the traditional ballgown wedding dress continues to be a favorite. The ball gown style is fitted to the waist with a full skirt and resembles dresses from fairytales.

is less dramatic than the ball gown style. It features a fitted bodice, then flairs out. The

Empire wedding dress

is another popular favorite. This style features a fitted bodice with a raised waistline and loose skirt.

Regardless of which wedding dress you pick, make sure that you’re comfortable. Ultimately, your wedding gown should reflect your personality, the style of event, and what looks best with your body shape.
