How To Determine What Style Wedding Dress You Want

Wedding gowns come in all sorts of different styles, silhouettes, colors, and each feature their own unique details - much like every individual bride! Here at Romashka Bridal in Washington, we believe that all brides should consider their personal style when choosing the perfect gown. After all, this is one of the most important articles of clothing you’ll ever wear! 


Something we encourage our brides to do is to imagine how they want to feel on their wedding day. This is super helpful for deciding what style to go for if you’re unsure! Do you want to feel romantic? Sexy? Sophisticated? Non-traditional? These are just a few of the choices you have! If you’re still trying to determine what style wedding dress you want, read on to see some examples of popular types! 

 

Traditional

In addition to being in style on the day they are worn, traditional wedding gowns will remain fashionable for years to come. If you lean more toward traditional wedding dress styles, you want to stay away from super blingy details or low cut necklines and backs. Opt for a gown that’s more understated yet timelessly chic. Think royal wedding here - Kate Middleton, for example, wore a gorgeous long sleeve lace gown that perfectly fits the traditional style. It looks timeless without being dated.

 

Maggie Sottero: Style Madilyn

 This demure sheath wedding gown by Maggie Sottero is such a great example of a traditional gown that feels fresh and sophisticated. Dressed in chiffon and lace, you’ll feel like a queen at your wedding in this gown! 

 

 

Romantic

The romantic look is soft, whimsical, and feminine. It’s really all about the details for a romantic gown! It doesn’t matter whether it’s strapless or off-the-shoulder - any style can be romantic if paired with romantic details like ruffles, chiffon, tulle, floral details, and a lightweight airiness about the movement. It should feel effortlessly sweet and delicate!

 

Julietta By Morilee: Style 3334

This soft flowing tulle gown from Julietta By Morilee is truly out of this world. The movement from the slit coupled with the frosted embroidered appliques are so quintessentially romantic! We particularly love a sweetheart neckline, and that detail along with the gorgeous lace trim makes this gown ideal for a romantic bride.

 

Glamorous

For glamorous wedding day styles, it’s really all about the drama. Think old Hollywood glamour here - the golden age of film and its beautiful starlets on movie posters. Go for sparkly beading, dramatic silhouettes, feathers, everything! The bigger, the better!

 

Casablanca Bridal: Style 2334

And if you’re looking for drama, this seductive wedding dress by Casablanca Bridal fits the bill. The decorative bodice is covered in various lace patterns and features an incredible ruffled skirt that adds such beautiful volume to the look. The fitted bodice, plunging neckline, and low back has so much personality - best suited for a bride who does as well!

 

 

Bohemian

With bohemian styles, the biggest factor to look for is effortlessness at the core. And there are lots of ways to achieve this with a wedding dress! Whether you go for crochet lace, bell sleeves, and fringe or a simple gauzy A-line or sheath gown, the key is to achieve the look and feel of free flowing comfort that allows for beautiful movement. Avoid anything that’s fussy or constricting!

 

Allure Bridals: Style C631

What’s special about this romantic gown from Allure Bridals is that it’s reminiscent of a 1920s style. It’s a sheath silhouette that boasts a stunning illusion butterfly back and delicate edging. The straps and lightweight skirt are perfect for bohemian brides! 

 


Modern

Modern wedding gowns are special because they’re sort of the line that connects traditional and romantic dresses. They’re very adjacent in the details! What makes a dress more modern is clean, sleek lines, unfussy fabrics like silk satin and crepe, and details that feel architectural in nature. Think of it like a modern-day piece of artwork for your wedding day!

 

Morilee: Style 12133

This wedding gown by Morilee is absolutely breathtaking, perfect for a modern bride. It’s high-fashion yet comfortably timeless and bold. It has a romantic bodice that’s delicately draped, which looks so beautiful next to the flared A-line skirt. It’s the epitome of a modern gown!
