The best Ballgown Wedding Dresses

Louisa Shulman at Find Your Dream Wedding Dress has picked out six of her favourite ballgown wedding dresses.

Style 5000 by Jesus Peiro

Traditional styling is given the modern treatment with Jesus Peiro’s 5000. This magnificent striped-effect satin ballgown has an elaborate embroidered waistband which creates a stunning central feature.


Style PC4857 by Phil Collins

This dreamy number by Phil Collins (PC4857) in the softest of tulles is multi-layered for volume and movement. The bodice features a whole bouquet of tiny flowers, centered with pearls and crystals, in an ornate composition that cascades onto the hips.


Ginger Rogers by Jade Daniels

Ginger Rogers by Jade Daniels is a striking dress with a pretty Chantilly lace sweetheart bodice below a sheer illusion panel piped in satin. The stunning embroidered metallic lace waistband features pearls and crystals.

Wynter by David Tutera

Don’t you love this dropped basque bodice and deep hem? Both of which are highlighted by the hand-beaded embroidery, which really stands out against the featherlight organza. Wynter by David Tutera for Mon Cheri is a wonderfully romantic look.

LouLou by Mooshki

LouLou by Mooshki is a soft and simple gown with a floaty skirt. However, unusually for a ballgown, it does not have a train – this makes it much easier to manoeuvre. The corded lace bodice is decorated with a sprinkling of pearls and clear beads.


Delores by Romantica

Delores by Romantic has taken all the elements of a traditional ballgown one step further by elongating the beautiful lace embellished bodice down onto the hips, where the full princess skirt takes over.
