Why we love A-line wedding dresses...
Our universally flattering A-line wedding dresses are our most popular silhouette. In fact, in our latest survey, nearly 45% of you said you were looking for a fabulous A-line.
This is probably because this really is a look that flatters everyone, plus it’s a timeless bridal silhouette that never goes out of style. Fitted at the chest to highlight your narrowest point, it flows out gradually into an ‘A’ shape, hence the name. The balanced proportions also work brilliantly to draw the eyes upwards and create a beautiful nipped in waist.
What’s more, this style suits both lightweight, floaty gowns and ones with more structure and volume, and our A-line designs have everything from lace, chiffon and tulle to a huge variety of necklines and back details. Look out for our slim A-line wedding dresses too, which fit a little closer to the body than a traditional A-line and are popular for beach or destination weddings.
Below we’ve picked a selection of our favourite A-line wedding dresses to show you why this silhouette is consistently our brides’ favourite style. And hopefully yours too!
Beautiful Ellanora is the perfect example of a classic A-line. Full skirt, flattering sweetheart bodice and plenty of intricate Chantilly lace. What’s not to love?
Alternatively, modern Aamira shows how A-line wedding dresses can also have a modern bohemian feel. The addition of gorgeous balloon sleeves with pretty button cuffs changes this shape from classic to romantic in an instant.
Amalie is a little more traditional, combining a soft tulle skirt with an illusion back and higher neckline, for a little more support and coverage. It gives the boho look an elegant twist and is the perfect choice for an outdoor or beach wedding.
Emilio is the one for a delicate, understated look. This chic boho A-line combines illusion straps and a lace-up back with an attractive plunging neckline. So, whether you want strapless, illusion straps or something more dramatic, we have an A-line style to suit!
Softly does it
Next, we have our pick of our favourite slim A-line wedding dresses. A slim A-line has all the flattering properties of a classic A-line but the skirt is a little less full, allowing for a more lightweight design. This makes it perfect for taking overseas, beach ceremonies, woodland weddings or simply an easy-to-wear, lighter option for any setting.
Pretty Fae does all this and more. The super delicate straps flow into a romantic butterfly shape at the back that really is delightful. Combined with the modern leaf and floral lace and the subtle beading it’s oh-so delicate and absolutely divine!
Kalila, on the other hand, mixes soft prettiness, with a dash of sex appeal, thanks to the sexy split in the tulle skirt. There’s also a high illusion back and plenty of lovely lace to catch the eye.
Emerson also has a traditional look with a modern twist, thanks to the attractive dipped back. Softened by plenty of illusion lace, that also cascades down the skirt, it’s ideal for modern brides.
Finally, we have Ayla, which changes it up again, with the addition of super pretty, off-the-shoulder sleeves. These floaty delights are also detachable, so you can make the look your own or create two looks in one.
Add some bounce…
So, whether you go for a classic A-line silhouette or a slimmed-down version, you can adapt the look to suit you with one of our underskirts. Our classic A-line underskirt adds volume and swish to any style. You can even wear two for maximum oomph.
Alternatively, our smoothing A-line Wunderskirt has slightly less volume but will help your dress flow and sit beautifully, while ensuring you feel totally comfortable and ready to dance the night away.
Maids in heaven
Plus, don’t forget your maids! Our A-line Bella bridesmaids’ dress comes in 15 different unique colours from dark green and deep purple to light blue and soft blush. So you can choose a colour to match your theme or mix ’n’ match to your heart’s content.
Lastly, we couldn’t finish without looking at our A-line flower girl dresses too. Perfect for your cute little mini-me, Albie has a lace-covered bodice with a high illusion neckline and is the ideal complement to our Platinum Albiona gown.
Alternatively, keep it simple with Tabitha in shimmering Mikado silk with its gathered waistline and detachable Mikado bow at the back. Even better, it also has sweet little pockets for all your cutest maid’s essentials!
