Ballroom Wedding Gowns
Ballroom wedding gowns are, obviously, very glamorous and they pretty much have to do with every girl’s dream of being a princess. So, what better day to look like a princess than your own wedding day? However, you have to keep in mind that these kinds of dresses do not look good on everybody and if you choose such a dress, the rest of the wedding ceremony should be appropriate.
For example, if you want a simple ceremony in a simple location, this wedding dress might not be for you. This kind of a gown should be worn in a big wedding ceremony, in a true “ballroom” that sparkles and catches everyone’s attention. Again, if you are more of a petite person or a little bit shorter, you should avoid a ballroom dress, because people will look only at your dress that will surely overwhelm you. All in all, weddings are all about the bride and groom and the bride’s dress and the groom.
The typical ballroom dress is characterized by a tight fitted corset and a full, full skirt. The main thing that draws everyone’s attention about these dresses is the full skirt. There are also versions of this type of a gown that are not strapless, but have braces. With the ballroom wedding gowns you can go three ways: either choose a very classical one, one that almost has story like embellishments and a more modern take to a ball gown. The classical one consists of a strapless corset and a full skirt with little beadings and that comes in white. A more story like ballroom wedding gown can come, for example, in a creamy like color with a corset that has different embellishments and one shoulder brace enriched with flower and leaves elements. The skirt is full, but you have three layers: one consists of embroided taffeta, the other one of embroided satin and the last one also consists of satin, but it has a beautiful wreath of flowers.
The designer Alexia thought of a more modern take to ballroom gowns that has a pleated bodice with one brace and a funky looking cut out tulle skirt. The main embellishment consists of Swarovski crystals.11
