Almost every little girl dreams of being a princess and the only time they can come close to fulfilling that dream, is on their wedding day. Ball gowns and princess go hand in hand so it’s only natural that many consider it for that one special occasion.
But, if you’re a bride-to-be that’s insecure or you have friends and relatives who are very opinionated about what you should wear, you could end up questioning your initial decision to wear a ball gown. You have to remember that your wedding dress will become immortalised in pictures which is why you should follow your heart and not the opinions of others. Here are 4 more reasons stick to your decision of wearing a ball gown:
1. When Will You Ever Get the Chance Again?
Ball gowns are elegant and you are guaranteed to feel like a queen on your special day. There will be many other occasions to wear a white sheath or A-line, but how often do you get the chance to go full-on ball gown?
2. Ball Gowns Work on Almost Any Body Type
No matter which body type you have, there’s a ball gown that will flatter it. Curvy women often opt for a full skirt and fitted bodice that puts emphasis on their bust and waist. Taller women get a statuesque, graceful effect by accentuating their height with a floor-skimming hemline. If you’re petite, make sure you select a curve-enhancing neckline.
3. It Will Give You More Options for Bridesmaid Dresses
Typically, bridesmaids wear a slightly less formal dress than the bride but if you wear an A-line or sheath, the options become limited. When paired with a ball gown, suddenly a floor length bridesmaid dress makes for an excellent scene on either side of your bold ball gown.
4. There Are Many Style Options to Choose From
Whether you want a romantic, Victorian dress or something more trendy and theatrical, there’s a ball gown that suits that look.
