When choosing a wedding dress, there’s a fine balance between what suits your body shape, what’s currently popular, and your dream bridal gown. Cultural weddings may dictate that you consider a variety of colours and fabrics, but here are three wedding dress suggestions for a traditional white wedding.

1. Princess ball gown wedding dress

Think Cinderella when it comes to this type of wedding gown. A slim-fit bodice with a very full skirt, often with multiple layers of underskirts, give this style of dress a very fairytale-like feel. This is a flattering dress choice which is perfect for almost all body shapes.

2. Boat neck wedding dress

The boat neck (or bateau) wedding dress is characterised by a wide neck feature, and is currently fashionable as its popularity increased since Meghan Markle wore this style for her wedding to Prince Harry in 2018. This type of dress accentuates the neck while remaining demure.

3. Tea length wedding dress

If a full skirt length doesn’t suit your petite frame, or if you prefer a shorter length for practical reasons, the tea length wedding dress makes for a beautiful alternative to fuller skirts. In recent years, the 1950s retro style of dresses (not just for weddings) have soared in popularity, and there are plenty of beautiful options to choose from.
