The 10 Most Beautiful Wedding Dresses of all Time

Choose the right style for the neckline, sleeves, the waistline and the silhouette and you get that perfect wedding dress you have always wanted for your big day. Blend tradition with modern creativity and you get a memorable ensemble. In this post, we highlight the 10 most beautiful styles that you should definitely explore when searching for your perfect wedding dress.

Ballgown

The ballgown is a classic princess wedding gown. Ballgown dresses are fitted at the waist and have a dramatic full skirt. Known to adapt perfectly to any body shape, this traditional design from Ancient Greece is still a hugely popular wedding dress. 

Mermaid

Want a fitted style wedding dress that doesn’t flare out at the waist and will accentuate your hourglass figure? The fishtail or mermaid design is meant to hug close to the body and flares out only at the knee or below giving you a beautiful mermaid style dress.

A-Line

The A-Line style is simple yet sophisticated, a quality that makes it universally loved. Fitted at the waist and gently flaring out, this design is for everyone, irrespective of body shape. Team it up with a V-neck and you can look forward to your fairy-tale wedding pics.

Modified A-Line

Want the fitting of an A-Line minus the flare? Go for the modified A-Line style that keeps the skirt closer to the body unlike the traditional A-Line. Add spaghetti straps or go strapless to spell oomph and chic all the way.

Trumpet

A modification of the mermaid style, the trumpet fitting has a snug bodice and the flare is somewhere at mid-thigh. This form-fitting style is great for ladies with curves.

Tea-Length

An elegant gown that has its hem just above the ankle, so you can show off your designer shoes. You can also customise your wedding gown to be shorter at calf length. 

Off-the-Shoulder

When the bride-to-be is looking for a bold outfit, trust the off-the-shoulder wedding gown to fit the bill. The sleeves are designed to dress the upper arms and do not cover the shoulders and the collarbones. 

Sweetheart

The sweetheart neckline is one of the most popular wedding dress styles. The neckline resembles the top half of a heart and can be combined with most silhouettes to give you that perfect bridal look.

Mini

A very modern take on the wedding dress styles, the mini style has the skirt length at just above the knee. 

Halter

If you want a wedding dress that gives your back some exposure, the halter style wedding dress is what you should choose. A deep or round neckline with straps that wrap around the neck and keep your shoulders open.
