Cheron's Bridal & All Dressed Up Prom
by Mark Douglas May 02, 2018
So, you're engaged--CONGRATULATIONS!!! We hope that you and your future spouse have a wonderful and happy life together for many years to come. Of course, the ring on your finger also means that you now have a wedding to plan. One of the most crucial parts of your big day is the dress, and it's okay if you feel a little overwhelmed with all of the options. Don't worry--we're more than happy to help. Let's review the different silhouette options. And later, in the corresponding video (embedded below), I'll bring even more focus by comparing the various silhouettes with body type and personal style.
This style of dress is an absolute classic, and looks good on all body types. With this style, the bodice is rather fitted, but the skirt (and train, if you choose to add one) is rather flowy. By changing up the type of fabric used, you can opt for a more structured or airy dress. Embellishments such as beadwork, lace, and embroidery all work well with this style, though it can look beautiful without them, as well. Some of our more popular A-lines include Morilee's Malke, Martin Thornburg's Coda, and Sophia Tolli's Kora. Click to shop A-Line Silhouettes.
If you've dreamed of having a fairytale princess wedding since you were a little girl, then a ball gown-style dress is for you. With this type of gown, the bodice is very fitted and the skirt is very full (think Disney princess dress). Just like the A-line, almost any fabric will work with this style of dress, though the weight of the fabric will determine how structured it will look and feel. Most any body type can wear this dress. Also like the A-line, a train works very well with this type of dress, especially because it is one of the more formal styles available. Our best-selling ball gown dresses include Morilee's Kali, Morilee Voyage's Myrcella, and Sophia Tolli's Helia. Click to shop Ball Gown Silhouettes.
This style can also be referred to as a column dress. It's one of the more simple styles, yet is still very classy and elegant. It works best for those who have slender body types, as it can emphasize curves in a less-than-flattering way, and can help add some height, if needed. It is very versatile, and can be adapted to anyone's personal style and wedding theme by changing the embellishments, fabric, length, sleeves, and neckline. Some of our favorites are Mon Cheri Enchanting's 217123, Morilee Blu's Milena, Morilee's Kassia, and Morilee Julietta's Kameron. Click to shop Sheath Silhouettes.
