Which Wedding Dress Silhouette is Right for You?

With so many wedding dresses in South Florida for you to choose from, it can be difficult to describe the dream dress you are imagining.  For those without a particular dress in mind, it can be daunting to look at all of the options and try to decide which will be the perfect fit for you.  Knowing a little bit about the shapes and silhouettes of wedding dresses can make your shopping experience easier.  Also, the friendly bridal experts at our bridal salon in Pompano Beach are always ready to help you find the perfect dress.  Here are a few of the silhouettes you will find.

A-Line dresses feature a fitted bodice down to the waist, gradually flowing out all the way to the ground, forming a shape resembling the letter A.  This silhouette is flattering on almost every bride.  A-line dresses can have a more subtle or more angular shape, depending on your preference.  The A-line is classic style made popular by Jackie Kennedy, and it is still tasteful and fashionable today.

A ballgown silhouette is for brides who want to feel just like a princess.  With a fitted bodice that flairs at the waist and a full skirt, you'll look like you are straight out of a fairy tale.  This dramatic shape is flattering on most women and gives the illusion of curves to boyish or thin brides.  You are sure to be a showstopper in a ballgown dress. 

Fitted down to the mid-thigh, then flaring out, this shape will show off your beautiful curves.  Trumpet shapes can be more subtle or can have a more dramatic flare depending on your taste.  This stylish silhouette is for bolder brides, but it allows for a lot of variation in the detail and neckline.  With so many styles of the trumpet silhouette to choose from, it is easy to find a look that is both elegant and modern.

Similar to a trumpet silhouette but even sexier is the mermaid.  This silhouette is also slim and hugs your curves, but tapers out below the knee.  This form-fitting, contoured dress is for confident brides who want to show off their shape.  A mermaid dress looks stunning in satin and typically does not need much detail because of its statement silhouette.  You are sure to be the center of attention in a mermaid gown, just be sure to practice walking in this slim dress so you can confidently strut down the aisle.

Sheath dresses are slim along your frame.  They can either fall straight down from neckline to hem, or they can be more form fitting or playful.  Sheath dresses are simple and sophisticated, but you can easily add plenty of detail or choose a more seductive neckline to make it the perfect dress for you.  This silhouette has elongated lines making it a flattering shape for petite brides, and it can accentuate curves on athletic frames.  Sheath gowns are elegant and tasteful, and with the right detail, they are anything but plain.

Does one of these silhouettes perfectly describe the dress you are envisioning?  Or are you still completely overwhelmed with the options and need help deciding what looks best on you?  Either way, the best way to find your dream wedding gown is to try on several different options.  Angelus Bridal is the best bridal shop in South Florida because we have talented bridal consultants that are here to help you find the dress that was made for you.
