After several seasons of mermaid and trumpet silhouette dominance, the princess wedding dress is back in a big way. Also referred to as a ballgown style, these wedding dresses feature voluminous skirts and romantic design. Flattering on most body types, these dresses are often thought of as highly traditional. However, the runways last month revealed trending details and modern translations. Here are 25 princess wedding dresses we think are particularly special.
Above, this wedding dress is spectacularly royal! Because this dress is so dramatic, go more demure with your accessories and hair. A simple updo, either with or without a veil, keeps the focus on the dress. One of the major details in the 2016 collections are lace embroidered or embellished accents. Especially popular are flowers and petals awash in seas of tulle to add dimension and femininity to the design.
Because the skirts are so full, you can add perceived height to your frame by selecting a dress with “vertical” embroidery, such as the ivy pattern running down the skirt of this dress from the bodice. When it comes to skirts with organza or tulle, one of the hottest trends is playing around with layers. The dress on the left is full of long layers, while the one on the right uses cropped tiers throughout the skirt.
There’s no reason you can’t mix and match your trends! Combine a crop top with a princess skirt for the perfect beach wedding dress Or take a cue from the runways and use bold, silvery feathers as your central detail on top of a full skirt.
