Choosing the Perfect Wedding Gown with a Bow
When looking for a wedding gown with a bow, consider that the bow can enhance a variety of dress styles, so keep an open mind when trying on gowns. A-line and ball gown dresses often pair beautifully with bows, adding to their classic and timeless appeal. Mermaid and sheath gowns can incorporate bows as well, creating a unique and modern look.
Also consider your body shape: brides with petite frames may opt for smaller, delicate bows that don’t overwhelm their figure. Curvier brides should look for dresses with bows at the natural waist to accentuate an hourglass shape.
Lastly, consider the placement and size of the bow. A small bow on the bodice adds a touch of charm, while a larger bow at the back can create a dramatic focal point.
Not all bows are made equal! You can find large bows that make a bold statement or small, delicate bows for a more understated look. Satin bows exude a luxurious and elegant charm, while lace bows add a romantic and vintage touch.
Bows can be placed in various locations on wedding dresses as well. A prominent bow at the back often adds a dramatic and eye-catching element. Bows at the waist create a flattering, cinched look that accentuates the figure. Sleeve bows can add a touch of femininity to the gown, while those on the train or hemline create a memorable and whimsical detail.
On the runway we’re seeing designers explore various bow color options beyond white and ivory. They are exploring blushes, champagnes and even bold colors to make a statement. Bows are becoming more intricate and inventive – as seen on the bow-tied sleeve. Oversized bows on the bustles create an eye-catching effect while walking down the aisle. While asymmetrical bows at the waist are our favorite runway trend this season.
