What is an A-line Wedding Dress? 

An A-line wedding dress features a fitted bodice and full skirt extending from the natural waist or at the hips to create an “A” shape on the body. While not as full as a ballgown skirt, an A-line is an excellent alternative for the bride who wants to move with ease on their big day while still having that “wow” bridal moment! 

What is an A-line Silhouette? 

A-line wedding dresses are the most flattering, especially when the skirt extends from the natural waist. This highlights the waist and gives the illusion of longer legs while minimizing the hips. Combined with a sweetheart or V-neckline, the eye is drawn vertically for a sleek look. 

A-line wedding dresses can come in a variety of styles depending on your dream wedding day look! From classic satin to whimsical tulle styles, the options are endless. You can find regal A-lines in lace with corset bodices, styles with a high neckline and long sleeves or go ultra-modern with a plunging neckline and skirt with a high dramatic slit. From the most classic look to the trendiest, you can find an A-line gown to match your wedding aesthetic! 

What is the Difference Between A-lines and Ballgowns? 

While the terms “A-line” and “ballgown” may be used interchangeably when describing wedding dress silhouettes, these two wedding dress styles are actually different! The main difference is that A-line gowns have skirts that aren’t as full as ballgown skirts, making them more universally flattering on all body shapes and sizes.  

A-lines can come in a variety of wedding dress fabrics, both structured and flowy, from heavy satins to light and airy chiffons, whereas a ballgown skirt requires more structure.
