An A-line wedding dress is one of the most comfortable silhouettes a bride can choose for her wedding day. Whether you’ve dreamed of a dress that perfectly nips in at the waist and flows out into a voluminous skirt or you’re looking for a gown that highlights your upper body and flows loosely over your lower half, an A-line wedding dress is a perfect choice. Even better, it’s such a classic shape that you can embrace details and embellishments that will highlight your personal style.  

Whether your taste skews minimal and sleek, whimsical and romantic, or traditional with a twist, there’s no doubt an A-line wedding dress for you. A-line wedding dresses come in just about every neckline and sleeve length you can imagine from pin-thin plunging V-necks to long lacy sleeves and strapless sweetheart shapes. There are even voluminous off-the-shoulder sleeve styles and minimal square necks for fashion-forward brides craving something trendy. 

Ahead, A-line wedding dresses for every body type, budget, and bridal aesthetic.
