wedding gown silhouettes

Wedding dress shopping can sometimes feel overwhelming. There are so many dresses, it’s hard to even know where to start.

What’s helpful to know before heading out to a bridal shop is what type of silhouettes you’re interested in. This can be hard too; after all, a wedding dress is different than any dress you’ve ever bought before — how can you know how you want it to fit?

We’ve compiled a list for you to help you learn a little bit more about silhouettes. And when you are ready to try on some dresses, there’s no better choice of a bridal store in Utah than Pritchétt Bridal. With tons of big-name designers including Tadashi Shoji, Moonlight, Tara Keely and many more, you’re sure to find the perfect silhouette for you.

1. A-Line Wedding Dresses

A-line wedding gowns are a classic option. They are defined by a fitted bodice with the skirt draping straight down in a shape that resembles the letter A. So many brides choose A-lines because of their classic beauty and adaptability.

An A-line is flattering for everybody, whether you’re a glamour girl or a Bohemian queen.

2. Mermaid Wedding Gowns

Mermaid wedding dresses are defined by a tight fit from the bodice through to the knee, with a flair at the bottom. They are known for typically showing a bit of skin, but if that’s not your style, don’t worry! Pritchétt Bridal has helped many Utah brides alter their wedding gowns with modesty panels, so you can have any style you like without worrying about coverage.

3. Ballgowns

If your vision for your wedding includes you looking like a movie star, then a ballgown bridal gown is the way to go. Ballgowns typically have a fitted top leading into a very full skirt. They are ideal for achieving maximum glamour without sacrificing any femininity. If you’re looking for drama and beauty on your wedding day, then a ballgown might be your perfect fit.
