A-Line Wedding Dresses

A-Line wedding dresses are the epitome of classic beauty! A-Line gowns include a fitted, structured bodice and a flowy, easy-to-wear skirt that flares out gradually. It’s a very popular style as it complements brides’ proportions and flatters the figure with a romantic, feminine cut.

Brides who aren’t sure of which gown style to choose often start by trying on a classic A-Line wedding gown and go from there.

Types of Fabric for Wedding Dresses

First up is chiffon. This type of fabric is pictured above on the skirt of this wedding gown. Chiffon is flowy and will blow in the wind if you are outside. Bridesmaids dresses are frequently made out of chiffon as well. Many describe chiffon wedding dresses as having a boho look about them, and many brides choose a chiffon gown for a beach wedding. Chiffon is great if you are looking for something lightweight and comfortable. The one drawback to chiffon is that it can stick to the body if there is any static…so have some static guard on hand if you choose a chiffon dress! Read more at Ellen’s Bridal…
