What does a classic wedding dress look like?

That kind of depends on who you ask - a classic wedding dress could range from a fit and flare gown that features simple crepe fabric to a ball gown with minimal beaded embellishment. When someone mentions that they’re wanting a “classic” wedding dress for their special day it normally means that they’re after a gown with a simple silhouette and chic neckline and without over-the-top glitzy detailing. A classic wedding dress could also mean a gown that’s vintage-inspired with hints of trends from the past like a sweetheart neckline, ball gown skirt or long sleeves. 


Classic wedding dress silhouettes that you should know about before you begin wedding dress shopping: 

Having a base knowledge of classic wedding dress silhouettes is key to a successful bridal appointment. Once you know exactly what each silhouette looks like and what parts of the body it accentuates, you’ll find it easier to make it clear what you’re looking for. Let’s start with the perennial bridal favorite - the A-line wedding dress. A-line wedding dresses fit snuggly throughout the bodice then slightly flare out at the waist into an A-shape, hence the name. The A-line silhouette is definitely a bridal staple due to the fact that it’s flattering on pretty much every body type. Next, we have the ball gown wedding dress - you know, the kind that princesses wear? Ball gown silhouettes also fit snuggly throughout the bodice like A-line wedding dresses but flare out at the waist into a voluminous, dramatic circle skirt - a look that feels decidedly regal. Finally, we have the mermaid wedding dress. Perfect for those looking to accentuate their curves, mermaid wedding dresses flare out just below the knee (whereas trumpet gowns flare out just above the knee and fit and flare gowns flare out just above that). Definitely harder to walk in but a show-stopper nonetheless, mermaid wedding dresses are a classic style for the brides-to-be looking to show off their sexy charm. 


For those looking to don a timeless bridal style - classic wedding dresses from Martin Thornburg are the iconic wedding day looks you’ve been waiting for.
