Wedding Dress Styles & Silhouette

The Rustic Wedding Chic Wedding Dress Information Page


There are 5 main wedding dress silhouettes: Ball Gown, Sheath, Mermaid, A-Line and Short and each one holds a slightly different style and feel to it. You should always try on every shape when you are dress shopping just to make sure you see each style on your body. Try NOT to go into your wedding dress shopping with just one dress style you are willing to try on.

Ball gown

The most regal dress silhouette is timeless and worthy of a fairy tale. A slim-cut bodice trims the waist

You can dress up a slim silhouette with dazzling embellishments or keep it minimalist chic. The cut follows your body’s natural shape

Wedding Gowns


The glamorous fit-and-flare silhouette amplifies curves for a sultry result. An elongated bodice hugs your body to below the hips. The signature skirt flares out mid-thigh or at the knees.

Mermaid Wedding Gown


With its subtle and balanced lines, this classic silhouette flatters every bride. A fitted bodice highlights your narrowest point. The skirt flares out gradually in the shape of an A.

A Line Wedding Gown


If floor-length isn’t your thing, kick up your heels in a cropped hemline. The skirt can be knee-length, tea-length, or in between. A leg-baring style works for city hall weddings (or even the reception).



There are 15 styles of necklines are each one is unique and different. Many times the bridal shop where you are shopping will be able to point you in the right direction of a neckline taking into consideration your size, shape and dress ideas.
