Ballgown Wedding Dresses
Ever since we watched Cinderella as children, we’ve been huge fans of ballgowns, so it made perfect sense to dedicate a blog category to one of our favourite bridal silhouettes.
As classic as the fairy tales they stem from, ballgowns will never go out of fashion and they make the ultimate show-stopping wedding dress. Born in the 1950s, the ballgown wedding silhouette - with its slim waist and huge skirt - dominated bridal couture thanks to icons such as Jackie Kennedy Onassis and Audrey Hepburn donning the iconic silhouette on their wedding days.
Whether you’re looking for a strapless, off-the-shoulder or full sleeve gown, our award-winning wedding dress designer Veni Infantino has created a selection of show-stopping ballgown wedding dresses that are perfect for any princess brides.
In this blog category, we take a look at some of our favourites from our recent collections to help inspire and inform you when choosing your perfect ballgown.
If you dream of channelling Cinderella as you walk down the aisle, Dulia (style 69559) is your dream dress. Made from flowing organdie fabric with a pearl-embellished bodice, sweetheart neckline and delicate beaded detachable straps, Dulia exudes both elegance and fantasy.
If you’re a boho bride at heart, Veronica (style 18507) offers a classic ballgown with boho touches thanks to vine detail lace, ruched organza straps and a flattering V-neckline. Welleda (style 18468) is also perfect for the fashion-forward boho bride thanks to its plunging V-neckline, beaded lace bodice with 3D applique detailing and breath taking open back.
For a more classic silhouette, Doreen (style 69583) is the perfect fuss-free gown for brides wanting to exude elegance à la Grace Kelly. With alluring off-the-shoulder straps, a classic sweetheart neckline and delicate sparkle belt detail, it offers the ultimate less is more look.
Another elegant and simple gown is Dawn (style 69551). Made from ruched organdie with sophisticated off-the-shoulder sleeves, Dawn looks fabulous a simple paid of pearl earrings.
Looking for some sparkle? Francina (style 69612) offers pearl and crystal detailing on a sweetheart bodice with an organza and glitter tulle skirt.
For long sleeve fans, or those wanting a more demure look, style 69717 is the perfect fit. A high neckline, lace applique sleeves, beautiful button detailing, 3D flowers and an organza and tulle skirt create a memorable silhouette that’s complemented by a sweeping cathedral train.
We hope this blog category helps inspire you to find your dream ballgown wedding dress. After all, if you can’t dress up as a princess on your wedding day, when can you?
