Dreamy ball gown wedding dresses can be formal and plush, but at times they can also be ultra-feminine and ultra cute, too. This very subtle boho ball gown design is all about the sleeves, which are Delicas (delicate knitted ribbons that give the illusion of long flowing layers) that extend up to the elbow and have a tiny slit to allow them to dangle just past the elbow. This charming little detail, along with the beading and sequins on the bodice, gives this gown that dreamy feel and makes it so lovely to wear. This version of a ball gown wedding dress features an updated floral design with small flowers (almost botanically perfect for a summer wedding) adorning the bodice and skirt.
Another great idea for this kind of delicate ball gown wedding dresses is to take a more simple look and choose white or ivory fabric and embellishments that are less bold. For instance, a thin corset with intricate details, or layered, organza chiffon with pleated detailing would make a beautiful, special day even more special. Or go for a pretty ivory or beige shift dress with subtle color palette choices. Look for accessories in soft pastel shades to really pull this dress together.
There are also fabulous styles of this kind of ball gown wedding dresses that feature two silhouettes, one on top and one at the back. These two silhouettes can either be seen as individual bridal gowns or as separate dresses with their own distinctive silhouettes. These two silhouettes can include a graceful, long, slim gown (either sleeveless or otherwise) that comes to a V-neck, or they can be a slightly flared V-neck with a shawl that cradles the wearer’s shoulder.
One other great look for these ball gown wedding dresses is the fitted bodice with a beautiful ruffled bodice. With this style, the bodice is fitted from the waist up with a natural waistline in a cinched shape. The bodice can be in a color that suits the bride’s skin tones; it can be a pale green, light pink, or even a beautiful, antique rose. The shawl that is usually optional on this style of bridal gown has a lovely printed ruffled effect that matches the bodice perfectly.
In addition to these wonderful, classic looks, there are also many newer trends of ball gown wedding dresses that feature interesting necklines. One great trend features the use of a unique tiered neckline. This type of neckline is perfect for brides with all different body types because the neckline is never quite in line with the rest of the bride’s neckline. Another trend features the use of a V neckline with a peek-a-boo skirt. These V necklines are great for bride with all different body types because their necks do not quite reach the hem of the skirt. These V necklines are usually available in a wide variety of colors.
