Classic wedding dress styles

When you’re planning your wedding, the main aspect most brides will focus on will be choosing their wedding dress! It’s the first thought on most bride’s minds once they get that ring on their finger, and with all the different styles and trends out there, it can be quite overwhelming to try and pin down a certain style. You may be considering the latest trends and seasonal styles that you see when you flip though bridal magazines. But is fashion forward the way to go on your wedding day?

While current trends and styles are great for our everyday wardrobe, you don’t want to look back on your wedding photos and cringe at the outdated style of your wedding dress that came and went in the blink of an eye. A classic wedding dress that will never go out of style is perfect for your big day. Here’s some of the best wedding dress styles that will always be in fashion.

Ball Gown Style Wedding Dress

If you want to feel like a princess on your wedding day, a classic ball gown style is the way to go. This style is characterized by a fitted bodice and tight waistline, accentuated by a big full skirt, mostly made of tulle. Think a real-life Cinderella, or classic fairy tale. This style suits all body types, so if you want a dramatic classic wedding dress style, look no further!



Empire Wedding Dress

An empire wedding dress is a classic style that features a small, scooped bodice and a waistline that sits directly under the bust and falls down into a slim skirt. This classic look is a traditional style that gives out Jane Austen vibes, and it’s perfect for a bride who wants a wedding dress that isn’t too showy.



A –Line Wedding Dress

An A-line dress is by far the most classic style. It’s timelessly stylish as its proportions suit all body types. Its cut in a way to slope gracefully over your hips to flatter and balance the tight bodice. This is a great style if you’re unsure what cut will flatter you, or you want a style that will suit you no matter what.
