A-line Gowns

Brides are leaning more towards the a-line type of wedding dress. They are keeping it simple with the fabrics so it’s more clean cut materials. A-line dresses are flattering for all brides due to the silhouette that has been designed to be fitted in the bodice and waist. Brides have the option to choose between long or short sleeves, strapless or to add a long train. Whether you’re going for a glamorous or bohemian look, it’s all up to you! An a-line dress will make you feel confident and comfortable.

Puff Sleeves

Let’s flash back to the 80’s with puff-sleeved wedding gowns, very nostalgic! Puff sleeves are the perfect fresh element for the modern bride and is very flattering because of the added volume. The silhouette is balanced out because the sleeves narrow the waist by accentuating the shoulders.

Short Dresses

Short dresses are also making a big comeback. If you plan to throw some shapes on the dance-floor, a short gown is the way to go! It’s also the perfect opportunity to show off your amazing shoes. People won’t be able to step on your train and the best part is that you will look and feel absolutely beautiful!
