1. Sheath

A sheath wedding dress is one of the most classic options for brides who are fans of a reserved style in wedding gowns. Sheath wedding dresses follow the natural silhouette of your body without adding any extra volume. A sheath dress is also extremely comfortable and you won’t feel any restrictions walking around in it all day.

2. Strapless

A strapless wedding gown is a perfect choice for a bride who is more daring in her fashion choices and is okay with showing a little bit of skin. You will feel especially comfortable in a strapless wedding dress on a hot summer day, but you can easily wear it in colder seasons if you add a shawl or a jacket over it.

All the love from @marieebridalscottsdale with our DEMITRA gown

3. Ball gown

When most girls are imagining their wedding outfit, this is the dress they are thinking about. A ball gown is the most traditional wedding gown variety. You can opt for a more subtle ball gown, but if you want to go all-in with your wedding look, a tulle skirt with a train should be right up your street.

4. Mermaid

A mermaid wedding dress is one of the trendiest options and is the right fit for modern, fashionable brides. A mermaid dress also adds balance to your figure and elongates it, so if you want to look taller or slimmer on your wedding day, consider choosing a mermaid wedding dress.

5. Trumpet

In many ways, the silhouette of a mermaid wedding gown is similar to that of a trumpet wedding dress: both flare at your knees and highlight your natural curves. However, trumpet wedding dresses are far less restricting around your thighs and legs, so if you are looking forward to a night of dancing on your wedding day, opt for a trumpet dress over a mermaid silhouette.

6. A-line

If you love the shape and luxurious feel of a wedding ball gown but feel like it’s too restrictive for you or adds too much volume to your figure, here is your best option. A-line wedding dresses have all the advantages of a ball gown and are extremely flattering on any figure while still giving you plenty of freedom to enjoy your big day activities.

7. Separates

If you are a bride who loves the attention, is proud of her groundbreaking fashion sense, and doesn’t mind becoming the most talked-about bride in your social circle, you will definitely love wedding separates. A combination of a top and skirt that gives a peek of your midsection can be a fantastic second outfit for your wedding day or even your only wedding outfit if you have a minimalistic taste.
