Types of Wedding Gown

Wedding dress is no doubt one of the most important elements for your wedding theme. In this extraordinary event of your life, wearing a stunning wedding gown that attracts the attention of your guest will certainly leave a timeless memory. Therefore, Malaysia Wedding Hub is going to walk you through the types/cut of wedding gowns available for Wedding in Malaysia.

The Mermaid or Trumpet Style 

This type of a gown has a very alluring look that flatters a curvy figure rapturously. The silhouette of this style outlines the shape of the body from the chest to knee and then widens and spreads outward at the hem. Because it is a body hugging style, it is best for those who have an hourglass or rectangle body shape. However, those who want to flaunt their curves and arcs can also rock with this style. This style is available in various forms ranging from strapless, halter, trumpet flare and flamenco so there is a wide assortment to choose from.

The Ball Gown

This is a dress style that princesses in fairy tales adorn. It has a fitted bodice that flares put from the hips and opens up into a full length skirt. This dress is either assembled in one piece or the skirt is separate and it is an optimum choice if you are planning a big, traditional wedding. To add more glitz and glam to the gown, you can accessorize it with a train and gloves. Fabrics like chiffon and satin are usually used for creation of the bodice while layers of taffeta and tulle are laid out on the bottom to create a floating look. Although this style will make any bride look beautiful and alluring, slender and pear shaped bodies are best flattered with this silhouette as it draws attention to the waist while shielding the lower body. Moreover, it assists in creating the hourglass figure image by heightening the waistline. But this type of style is not recommended for shorter frames.

Column/Sheath Wedding Gown

This dress flows out in a narrow fashion vertically down to the floor without flaring out anywhere and tends to display all the curves. This body hugging design is best suitable for slim brides who have harmonized bodies. Though a timeless style, it can restrict movement, make you feel uncomfortable and self-conscious and impede your movement and balance on the dance floor and most of the brides steer clear of this wedding gown style.

A-line/Princess Style Wedding Gown

This classic yet simple design has engaged the attention of the brides for decades as fits appropriately on all body shapes. The bodice of A-line is fitted and then it opens up and flares out to the ground. The length of this wedding gown can vary from either knee length to full length following a train. It is designed from any kind of fabrics from chiffon to free-flowing silk to satin. This gown shape is much more forgiving then other styles and synchronizes the heavier tops, while hiding the tummy flab and even conceals a rounder lower body.

Empire Style Wedding Gown

The empire dress is distinctive and exclusive because it has a high and raised waistline, with the seam being underneath the bust and the fabric of the dress falls gracefully to the floor from below the waist. The empire dress can brag full length sleeves with sophistication and modishness and the varied cuts that form the skirt add extra elegance and charm to the wedding dress. The empire dress is usually created from light fabrics. Although this dress type is suitable for all body types, brides who want to enhance their busts or are pear shaped usually go for it as it sheaths the legs and hips.

The trends in wedding gowns have changed in the recent times and gowns that are embellished with jewellery, sequins, beads, multiple forms of laces are more in vogue as these beautify the bride and add glitter and dazzle to the wedding gown. Most of the brides opt for a complete suite of wedding gown which integrates a wedding veil that is embroidered with beads and flowers and signifies their purity and modesty. The flowing white veil is symbolized with a sign of virginity. It is also customary for many brides to hold a bouquet of flowers.
