There's something so utterly romantic about a ball gown. Perhaps it's the feeling that you look like a modern-day princess, or the fact that it's a classic silhouette that will never go out of style. If there's one day to feel like royalty and wear a dramatic ball gown, it's on your wedding day.
Many bridal designers incorporate at least one ball gown in each collection since the style is perfect for nearly every body type. Strapless ball gowns are ideal for brides who want to show a little skin, while long-sleeved designs offer a more modest option. Tulle, satin, silk chiffon, and organza are all popular fabrics for ball gown wedding dresses, and many are embellished with elegant laces, intricate beading, or accented with a bridal belt or ribbon at the waist.
