What's Up Weddings

Return of the Ball Gown

May 17, 2018 11:43AM ● By Brian Saucedo
With Prince Harry officially off the market, women are taking matters into their own hands and there’s no better way to feel like a princess than wearing a dramatic ball gown. Ball gowns today have the structure, asymmetry, and necklines not often found in decades prior. The modern ball gown silhouette also avoids feeling stuffy with a constructed volume that moves effortlessly down the aisle.

While your full skirt will walk the part of royalty, personalize the dress with the neckline and details. Designers are even offering separates and lace overlays to help you customize your princess look. Don’t forget to don your jewels, a tiara, cathedral veil, and, most importantly, your brightest smile to complete the modern princess ball gown look.
