Wedding dresses come in a wider variety of styles today than ever before. But if you’re a traditional bride with a certain image of the most important dress of your life, you’ll be pleased to know that traditional gowns are still popular. Traditional and contemporary is what you’ll find when you set out to find your special dress. Consider these standout dresses that combine classic charm and modern styling.
Yards and yards of organza in a strapless ball gown with a sheer illusion sleeve neckline create an image that is elegantly traditional but modernized for today’s bride. Lace appliqués adorn the full skirt as well as the detachable neckline. Pearls, crystals, and sequins shimmer on the lace. This lovely gown comes in white or ivory, and will surely make you glow on your special day.
You’ll look like the princess you are in a strapless ball gown of silk and satin. The bodice is embellished with beads, as is the abundant train. Wear full length bridal gloves with this gown to complete the image of royalty. Available in white or ivory, this dress with its cascading side panels will have your groom feeling like your very own prince as he watches you coming down the aisle to join your life to his.
A traditional bridal gown can include a flash of drama, especially when it features a fitted, drop-waist bodice with deep V-neckline straps that are trimmed with crystals. Pearls dance among those crystals, too, giving you a subtle shimmer, whether you choose to dress yourself in ivory or white silk satin.
Traditional does not have to mean demure, but some dresses bring the look into the twenty-first century in a stunning way. An A-line gown that is adorned in Alencon Lace from the neckline to the skirt hem will make all the women sigh and all the men jealous of your groom. Three-quarter length sleeves in the same lace hug your arms while a silk satin sash hugs your waist. The lace is hand-appliquéd and encrusted with crystals that make you shimmer, radiating the joy of your special day.
Bridal fantasies often involve yards of taffeta and tulle, and your fantasy can come true in a strapless ball gown made of beaded silk taffeta. The pleated bodice will hug your torso before falling into a full skirt that is layered with mounds of tulle. The rosette accented skirt will float around you as you stride down the aisle, and your husband to be will feel as if he’s floating on air while he waits at the altar for you.
Give tradition a contemporary twist when you choose a one shoulder silk Garza ball gown with beaded floral appliqués clustered on the bodice. The waist is ruched, to set off your figure, and the skirt is full and flowing. Pair this stunning gown with yards of lace-adorned tulle that billows up from your hair and cascades down your back. You will look almost as stunning from behind as you do from the front, and no one will doubt that you are the queen of the day.
Flowers are as important to weddings as the bridal gown itself. Combine the two in a silk satin gown that gently hugs your torso before skimming down your hips and flowing down to the floor. Fabric flowers hug one side of the dress just above your knee, sweeping around the back of the gown. A tiny silk organza jacket finishes off this dress with more fabric flowers on one shoulder and at the front. This sweet combination is available in ivory or white.
All brides should look stunning on their big day, and you certainly will when you wear a strapless gown made of satin organza that fits close to your body before flaring out just above your knees. An embroidered lace overlay takes this gown to the next level, adding rich detail to your simple silhouette and giving a subtle whisper as you walk down the aisle.
Chiffon flows as if it has a life of its own, especially when it is adorned with ribbon, crystal and pearl embroidery in an A-line silhouette. This stunning gown will shimmer as you move, showing off your figure to perfection and reflecting the candlelight of your sacred ceremony. You’ll absolutely glow as you move forward in this graceful gown.
“Simply beautiful,” is how everyone will describe you when you come down the aisle in a strapless A-line gown of pure satin, your skirt sweeping the floor around your feet. The shimmer of the draped bodice is the only adornment on the front of the gown, hugging around your body to form a large bow at the back. You will look sweet and lovely in this simple gown, your beauty shining with the joy you feel as you prepare to speak your vows of love with the man who awaits you at the altar.
Traditional or contemporary, your wedding gown can provide the perfect touch to the happiest day of your life. Find your dress now.
