Bride wearing an A-line wedding gown

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 is for you. A-line wedding dresses come in just about every neckline and sleeve length you can imagine, from 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. 

To help you narrow down your choices, here are our favorite A-line wedding dresses for every body type, budget, and bridal aesthetic.

Shopping FAQs

Are you considering an A-line wedding dress? We've answered three common questions brides have when shopping for this popular silhouette.

What is an A-line wedding dress?

Following the shape of a skirt, an A-line gown is characterized by a fitted waistline and flared skirt.

Are A-line wedding dresses flattering?

An A-line wedding dress is an incredibly flattering option for brides as the silhouette accentuates the smallest part of your waist. When shopping for an A-line gown, you'll notice they come in a slew of different necklines, sleeve lengths, fabrics, and styles.

Do A-line wedding dresses come in a range of styles?
