Ball Gown Wedding Dress – A Great Option for Fairy Tale Weddings
Brides who look for celebrating their wedding day with a fairy tale theme, they should consider the gorgeous style of ball gown wedding dress. This style is similar to A-line wedding gown only that it has a fuller skirt which can not be completed by a train.
The skirt is rich enough in fabric making it not suitable for an additional train that with A-line style comes so naturally. The bodice can be designed with or without straps, but also looks very beautiful when created with 3/4 or long sleeves. A more dramatic effect is added with a strapless fitted bodice and paired with opera length gloves.
Ball gown wedding dresses can be created from various fabrics, each one of them bringing a different look of the gown. For instance, the use of chiffon or satin overlay attached to a rich petticoat will confer the gown an elegant and refined silhouette. The bodice can appear with rich embroidery for a more sophisticated look.
If you want for your appearance to be more magical you can choose the light layers over the rich skirt to confer a floating image of your bridal entrance. The way in which this skirt looks so full is achieved through various methods: it can either have a crinoline or a petticoat that supports this rich structure or many layers of taffeta, tulle or organza can be used to result in the same effect.
Ball gown wedding dresses are suitable for all sorts of body types, although the most recommended ones are slimmer shapes or pear-figured silhouettes. The large bust can as well be sensually emphasized by the fitted bodice while the rich volume skirt can symmetrically complement the full bust creating the hourglass effect.
