The Ball Gown is the perfect wedding dress to achieve a princess look on your wedding day.

The fitted bodice is commonly created with lace or satin, making for an overall dramatic effect. The bell-shape silhouette is extremely flattering for any body type and very forgiving! A dress like this will make you feel like you’re in a fairytale, floating down the aisle.

What body type are best for Ball Gown wedding dresses?  

Ball Gown dresses are best for mid-height or taller brides who have a bit of a bust. Definitely for the traditional bride who is planning a fairytale wedding.

What body types should generally avoid Ball Gown wedding dresses? 

Keep in mind the skirt of the Ball Gown dress is extremely voluminous to keep the shape, so it can be extra heavy. Petite ladies should avoid the Ball Gown silhouette, as the skirt can overwhelm you and make you look a bit shorter.

What necklines can be paired with a Ball Gown wedding dress? 

With Anomalie, you can match a Ball Gown skirt with a sweetheart neckline, plunging neckline, straight neckline, v-neck neckline, scoop neckline, boatneck neckline, or halter neckline. You can add sleeves to your Ball Gown wedding dress for a winter wedding or go strapless for a beach wedding.
