8 Popular Styles of Wedding Dresses

Wedding dresses are personal, special, and create an unforgettable memory. Every bride knows that as soon as you try on your perfect dress, you just know. There are so many styles out there that it can get a little overwhelming if you’re not sure what you want. 

Wedding dresses have a ton of details, but it comes down to fabrics, neckline, and silhouette. The neckline defines the chest area, while the silhouette of the dress captures your curves. To learn more about popular styles, keep reading. 



This neckline shows off the shoulders and chest area, which is perfect for brides who want a subtle but daring look. It is typically paired with a sweetheart neckline. 


A sweetheart neckline is exactly how it sounds; the top of the dress mirrors the top of a heart. A sweetheart neckline can have many other details such as an off-the-shoulder design, lace sleeves, or the option for straps. 


A v-neck neckline shows off part of the décolletage, which adds a little spice to your dress. There are levels of how low the v-neck can go, depending on what you’re looking for. 

Queen Anne 

The Queen Anne style is an ideal dress for those who want to look classy and modest on their wedding day. It has a high collar in the back with either a scoop or sweetheart neckline.



The mermaid silhouette style is great for those who want to show off their curves, but also want a flair at the bottom as well. This is one of the most popular dress types and comes in so many different styles.


For those who want to feel like a princess on their wedding day, this is the dress for you. While the top of the dress is tailored and fitted, the bottom is dramatic and stunning. 


You may like the style of a ballgown but want something quieter. The A-line dress is softer and tamed, but still has a skirt that isn’t conformed to the body. It’s a great dress for those who are in between dress styles. 


A trumpet silhouette is comparable to a mermaid style dress. However, a trumpet dress is very fitted until around the knees, and then the skirt flairs out. A trumpet skirt is way less dramatic, as the skirt has a softer fabric.
