When you, as a new bride, start to search for the perfect wedding dress for your big day, one of the best things to do is to sit back, relax and imagine yourself on your wedding day, wearing the perfect bridal gown, dancing in your ideal reception venue with your now-husband as all of your guests look at you in awe. Now that you have that perfect picture in mind, think about the shape of your perfect wedding dress. If its a breathtaking, poofy wedding gown that makes you look and feel like a Disney princess - theres no doubt that you need to look at a princess or ball gown silhouette wedding dresses.
A ball gown wedding dress looks exactly like it sounds - its a combination of a bodice that closely fits the figure, complimenting your chest and waist, and a poofy, full-bodied skirt. Most of the time, the skirt and the bodice come as a one-piece wedding dress, but you can often find wedding dress models that feature a skirt thats completely separate from the bodice.
A ball gown wedding dress helps create the perfect Cinderella-like hourglass-shaped silhouette for you. A dress in a princess silhouette will look particularly good on slender brides and on women with a large bust, as the heavy skirt of the dress can help compensate for the large bust, creating a harmonious figure. Similarly, a ball gown wedding dress looks great on brides with pear-shaped figures, as it helps to offset the heavy bottom of the silhouette.
In terms of fabrics, youve got loads of choices with a ball gown silhouette wedding dress. If you want to create a traditional bridal look steeped in elegance and class, choose chiffon or satin as the main material of the wedding gown. On the other hand, if you want to feel like a dreamy Disney princess on your wedding day, opt for a dress with a voluminous skirt created by layered organza, tulle or taffeta. You can also choose a dress with a petticoat, as it will also add volume to the dress.
