The most important thing for any bride to do the day of her wedding dress shopping experience is try on a variety of silhouettes — and my good friend, Elle Evans, was no exception! Even though she had an idea of what she wanted, it was important for her to try on several very different gowns. As a bride, you may not like the way the dress overall looks, but there could be certain elements of the gown that you do like, and want to see on the final style you select.
I chose an A-line design to be Elle’s first try-on because of the silhouette – not only did I think it would look great on her body type, but it matched the flowy vibe of her wedding day perfectly! She loved how princess-like the skirts felt and how many of them had ornate detailing on the bodice to complement the full skirt.
The best part of an A-line wedding dress? It looks amazing on every body type! Fitted through the bodice and slightly at the waist, the gown then flares out into a full skirt.
In search of an A-line gown for your wedding day style? For a more formal style, look for gowns that are a bit more structured in silk or satin. If you’re in search of a bohemian-inspired A-line gown, chiffon or tulle will be perfect for you! Here are a few of my favorite A-line wedding gowns that I know you will love!
Martina Liana style 979 features a dramatic keyhole back that keeps the style flirty and romantic, while the A-line skirt plays into the laid-back bohemian vibe.
Martina Liana style 984 is a classic A-line style! Featuring luxe lace on the bodice, the full skirt extends to the ground, creating a dreamy silhouette.
A more glamorous A-line gown, Martina Liana style 902 features rich beadwork on the bodice, which is accentuated by the full, A-line skirt.
Martina Liana style 838 is for the classic brides! The A-line silhouette of the gown is designed in a structured silk and is highlighted with a flirty double-strap back.
