There are so many important parts of your dream wedding that you can easily find a number of things to focus on. When it comes to your big day, arguably, the dress is the thing that underpins the entire occasion. But sometimes, we don’t know what type of dress that we want. You might have no idea of how you want your dress to look, but describing a dream gown can be difficult. In which case, it’s important to know the different types. Let’s show you a few to give you some inspiration. 

Mermaid Wedding Dresses

This is one of the most common gowns sold by many wedding dress providers like Madison James. It’s a very flirtatious style. Flaring out at the knees and can appear to be one of the more restrictive shapes, as it can hinder your legs a bit. But, it is fantastic if you want that stylish red-carpet-ready look. 

Ball Gown Wedding Dress

Ideal for those that want a fairytale wedding. It’s one of the most classic wedding dress shapes, and consists of a fitted bodice, and a wide skirt, and is perfect for brides who want to rein in their waist and create the illusion of wider hips. 

Sheath Wedding Dresses

This is a wedding dress that falls to the floor below your hips, with a minimal flair. This is an ideal choice for people who want to have an effortless look, and while it may not have much in the way of volume, it’s a very versatile dress. It works wonders with almost every type of fabric, from satin to lace, and almost everything in between. The ideal shape for hourglass figures or slim brides who don’t want the gown to overpower them. 

Trumpet Wedding Dress

The trumpet looks very similar to the mermaid dress, but the skirt flares out more with a trumpet and is less fitted through the hips. It gives you a bit more freedom than the mermaid and is ideal for enhancing your curves. 

Tea-Length Wedding Dress

This is a shape that goes a bit longer than a cocktail dress or a mini dress and is the perfect choice for brides who don’t want the fuss that comes with a full-length gown. They are a perfect choice for petite and curvy brides, and also great for showing off your shoes, which tend to be hidden if you are wearing a long dress. 

Column Wedding Dress

A column wedding dress has a very sophisticated look, is similar to a sheath wedding dress, and can be fitted or loose over the waist, or fall straight to the floor. This is a perfect choice for petite brides, due to the minimal amount of material, and as the dress creates a uniform up and down look, this is a no-fuss choice for any bride out there. 

Some people know what they want, others do not, this is why knowing the different types of wedding dress is always a good place to begin.
