CHOOSING A VEILMay 20, 2012
Following are the most popular wedding dress styles:
This style can also be referred to as the Princess style. This style has a fitted bodice with a defined waist, widening gradually towards the hemline. It has multiple, vertical panels extending in an A-line shape from the waist to the hem.
The A-line is a style that suits most figure shapes, sizes & ages. In a shorter length it can be a lovely choice for your bridesmaids. This is also a very flattering style on Moms, to which a broader strap / sleeves can easily be added.
This is a timeless, classic style (for more info & photo’s see my blog post on the Classic Bride)
The trumpet style has a form fitting bodice with a semi full skirt that flares from below the hips.
This style is inspired by the classic old fairy tale. It has a fitted bodice (corseted) with a full skirt that starts on or just below the hips.
The waistline of this style is raised to just below the bust line with either a straight or flared, breezy skirt. This style is ideal for sheer, soft fabrics such as chiffon.
This is a ‘figure friendly’ style, which can also be a great option for bridesmaid’s dresses.

It is a figure hugging style which flares out from or just below the knee.
This style could either be in a classic version or a dramatic one. For more info & photo’s see my blog post on the Dramatic Bride)
The sheath has a narrow, form fitting line. It is usually cut on the bias (the cross-grain of the fabric) which produces a fitted shape with a gentle drape at the hem.
This style is most suitable for athletic, well-toned figures.
