While you may think of the fabric (tulle, lace, satin) or embellishments (beading, feathers, pearls) as being the most important aspects of a wedding dress, the construction of your gown is also something that can make a big—and stunning—difference.
Take, for example, corset wedding dresses. This boudoir-inspired silhouette instantly shifts a bride’s aesthetic in an elegant, alluring direction with the simple addition of a structured bodice. Though corsetry is oft reserved for after-hours (and at-home) happenings, the designers ahead prove that this old-world detailing can actually feel quite modern and perfect for a walk down the aisle.
