Frilly, playful, and romantic, there is something so quintessentially bridal about a ruffled wedding dress. Whether you’re drawn to gowns with layers of cascading tulle or you’re looking for something more subtle like midi dresses with flouncy hems, ruffles add texture and dimension to any wedding dress silhouette.

When it comes to shopping for ruffled wedding dresses, it’s all about selecting a gown that has the right amount of drama for you. Brides with bold tastes will love the look of statement-making ball gowns featuring tiers of voluminous and frothy ruffles, while brides with a more minimalist aesthetic should look for simple silhouettes with subtle frill accents. And for the modern bride? Go for sleek silhouettes with clean and architectural ruffles for a look that feels fresh and fashion-forward.

FAQ

  • Are there different types of ruffles?

    Yes, there are many different types of ruffles. Some of the most common types of ruffles are single and double edge ruffles, waterfall ruffles, circular ruffles, and cascading ruffles.

  • Are all ruffled wedding dresses voluminous and dramatic?

    Ruffled wedding dresses run the gamut from voluminous and dramatic to understated and delicate. While some brides may prefer statement-making ruffled gowns, others may prefer pared-back silhouettes with subtle ruffle detailing.

  • Are ruffled wedding dresses heavy?

    Since ruffles add extra fabric to a silhouette, a ruffled wedding gown can sometimes be heavy. However, the weight of a ruffled gown will largely depend on how many ruffles are on the gown and what type of fabric was used to create both the gown and the ruffles. Gowns designed in heavyweight fabrics with allover ruffles tend to be heavier than simple silhouettes adorned with ruffles made from lightweight and wispy tulle.
