31 Gorgeous Ball Gown Wedding Dress Ideas to Inspire You

From Disney princesses to real-life royalty, ball gowns have, and always will be, a source of inspiration for brides.

Also known as the princess wedding dress, the style is instantly recognizable by the fitted bodice and voluminous skirt. It also (more often than not) features beautiful embellishments, including embroidery, beading, or sequins. In other words, it’s for the bride who wants to look and feel like a princess on one of the most important days of her life!

Swoon, and twirl-worthy, what we love most about the ball gown shape is that it is elegant, effortlessly timeless, and flattering for all body types and sizes. Keep it traditional, or if you’re more of a fashion-forward bride, add a modern twist with an unexpected color, asymmetric hemline, or an oversized bow.

To inspire you we’ve trawled the web to find 31 of the most gorgeous ball gown wedding dresses! We’ve included custom-made designs, ready-to-wear dresses, and one or two surprises.

Get ready to get royal!
