The A-line silhouette has always been a favourite for wedding dresses because it cinches in the waist while the skirt flares out to the bottom to create the “A” shape, which gives the effect of a slim waist. A-line dresses also do a great job of emphasising the chest and hips while creating a balanced look due to the flared skirt. Below we’ll take a look at some of our tops picks for A-line bridal dresses this year.
Strapless A-line wedding dress
The A-line silhouette is an excellent option for strapless dresses, as the bodice-style of the top of the dress helps it to stay in place and shows off your curves. The Zariah from Sottero and Midgley has a gorgeous sweetheart neckline and is adorned with glimmering lace appliques down the body of the dress and skirt. The Marquice organza skirt flows beautifully down to a chapel train creating a beautiful rippling effect as you walk.
The Mori Lee 5402 is another top pick for A-line dresses. This one also boasts a sweetheart neckline which is a framed beautifully with the lace applique that extends down the bodice and around the hem of the skirt. The skirt is a sweet floor-length tulle design that elegantly flows out to show off the lace detailing as it flows back onto the floor as you walk. The back of the dress features a tapered lace-up design down the bodice.
Both the Zariah and Mori Lee 5402 models are available at Bridal Secrets, so why not try on both?
V-neck A-line wedding dress
Maggie Sottero wedding dresses are apparently a favourite for A-line designs! This model, Sigrid, emanates timeless elegance and classic glamour. It features striking asymmetrical pleating across the Rima satin skirt as well as shimmering lace detailing over the bodice. The v-neckline is embellished with pearls and beading, and the lace overlaying the bodice extends to the capped sleeves and back of the dress, highlighting the pattern of the lace. The back is finished with a gorgeous line of crystal buttons.
High-neck A-line wedding dress
The Pronovias Draga is an excellent choice for a dramatic high-necked A-line dress. A full Mikado skirt and train is topped by a low sweetheart bodice and covered with a pretty lace overlay. The lace overlay creates an illusion lace high-neckline and full sleeves. The back of the gown features buttons from the top of the high neck down to nearly the end of the train, creating a beautiful line on an already show-stopping dress.
Off-the-shoulder A-line wedding dress
Another spectacular dress from Pronovias is the off-the-shoulder Destiny model. The beautiful crystal tulle and Mikado skirt extend up into the bodice with a low-sweetheart neckline overlaid with lace. Around the neckline, the lace creates a tattoo-effect as it extends past the material of the bodice. The full lace sleeves extend across the back of the dress into a low “V” in the back which ends just above the dramatic Mikado bow, which is detachable depending on your preferences. An extensive line of Pronovias wedding dresses, including several excellent A-line options, is available at Bridal Secrets.
