How young do you think a young bride could be? 20? 18?
Yes, you are right! Whether or not it is a good idea to get married when so young, there are many brides who choose to do so at this age. One of the biggest challenges for many of them is finding the right wedding dress, as not all these brides look old enough to be a bride.
We’ve seen plenty of young brides walk into our boutique and ask us for one thing—a wedding dress that makes them look grown up and sexy! The main concern, however, is that they come shopping with their mothers, who usually believe they are still too young to choose anything other than the traditional ball gown. Trust us when we say that this is the last thing that young girls want to be seen in.
Fortunately, there are plenty of designs that can satisfy both parties, and prevent a power struggle. This is what we will look at today; the various factors in a dress that can make a young girl look grown up, while mom too thinks it is appropriate.
Fit and flare silhouettes
The fit and flare wedding gown, or more particularly the mermaid style dress which fits your curves closely along the torso, and then opens into a wide skirt is considered one of the most sexy silhouettes of all times. While this is a favorite with brides, the typical sweetheart neckline that is usually paired with these gowns may not be appreciated by moms. The solution is to strike a balance between the two.
This Sophia Tolli Y21507 wedding dress looks grown up and sexy with it’s fit and flare silhouette allowing you to flaunt your curves, even while it is modest. It has an illusion V-neckline and lace appliques on the cap sleeves. The layered mermaid skirt is magnificent, without too much pouf. The smart waistband gives more structure and adds elegance.
A-line wedding dresses
The next best thing to an elaborate ball gown skirt is an embellished A-line skirt. This has a sexy appeal, and you will look grown up and womanly in it. A-line wedding dresses are available with various neckline and sleeve options, and you can find one that is the right mix of embellishments and structure for your taste.
This tasteful Jasmine T162064 is a happy mix of a fit and flare gown and an A-line dress. The illusion halter-style neckline over the sweetheart bodice is sophisticated, so it can be easily carried off by young brides. The embellishments are elaborate, but with classic style.
Asymmetrically draped dresses
This style is a safe balance between contemporary and tradition. It looks best on tall women, but it is one that can be sported by short girls too, if they are slender. With pleats that drape towards one side, the best part of this dress is that it usually features dropped waists that reduce the prominence of the layers in the skirt.
The Alfred Angelo 2521 gown will be loved by both the bride and her entourage, as it brings together the classic timeless beauty of silk with a fit and flare silhouette. The dropped waist helps you show off your slender figure, while the skirt has enough layers to add grace to your stride.
