Most brides want to wear a ball gown when they have their wedding in an Orlando ballroom. However, the fact is that ball gowns are not flattering on every figure. And white is a really unforgiving color. There are many things you can get away with in black but not in white.

Since this is your wedding day, it’s important for you to feel comfortable in whatever you wear. You shouldn’t have to feel like you have to lose weight just to look good in your wedding dress. Remember that there’s a dress for you out there, no matter what your size or shape. Here are some great options for a dress to wear at a ballroom wedding:

The Ball Gown                                                    

It’s not that you should eliminate the option of wearing a ball gown completely. In fact, there are certain figures which look great in ball gowns. If you have an hourglass figure or if you’re even a little bigger on the bottom, a ball gown will look great on you because it cinches you in at the waist and emphasizes your cleavage.

Mermaid Dresses

These are also a great option for women who are curvy and don’t mind showing off their curves. At the same time, they’re a little more comfortable to walk in than ball gowns because the skirt is not as large. A mermaid dress can look sophisticated yet traditional at the same time.

Flowing Chiffon Dresses

Chiffon is a very pretty, flowing material and can look good on virtually any body shape. Make sure the top of the gown is fitted correctly while the bottom can just flare out from the waist. Chiffon looks great in pastel colors as well, like pink and powder blue.

Satin Slip Dresses

It’s true that satin slip dresses are on the more casual side because, after all, they look like slips! And they’re not very forgiving to different body types either. But if you have a tall, slender figure, then a satin slip dress might be just right for you. Try and get one in an interesting silhouette—maybe a backless slip dress or a one-shoulder slip dress. You can also dress them up with nice jewelry and a pretty veil.
