Cinderella wore it. Tiana wore it. Belle wore it.
And many brides who want to feel like a princess on their special day choose a ball gown silhouette wedding dress.
By definition, a ball gown silhouette is fitted at the bodice and then flares out into a large skirt at the waist. Out of all the wedding dress silhouettes, the ball gown one has the most voluminous skirt. In this way, it is one of the most recognizable silhouettes, not only because it is featured so prominently in Disney but because it is so much different from other designs.
Luckily for all brides, too, this silhouette is flattering on all body types and comes in a variety of fabrics and designs. Want a plunging neckline? This dress can accommodate. Want lace organza instead of satin? The ball gown has both options, plus more. Need a dress to fit a certain budget? From David’s Bridal to Her’s Bridal and Special Occasion and many other stores on the I-20 corridor, this dress can be found in an array of prices.
This silhouette is also referred to frequently as a princess gown because of its royal appearance. It goes well with more formal or traditional venues, so if casual is more of the bride’s style, another silhouette may fit better with the overall wedding theme.
However, if grandness and making a statement with the bridal dress is the desire, the ball gown silhouette is perfect for that magnificent day.
