You've been dreaming about buying a wedding dress since the very first time you draped the saree of your mother which she wore at her wedding. But now that you’re finally ready to walk down the aisle, you’re not quite sure what type of bride you’d like to be. Should you go with a traditional look? Or a modern one? Can’t quite find your inner bride? Don’t worry, we’re here to help!

You are bored of the usual sarees and lehengas. The fashion industry has come up with various gorgeous silhouettes that can suit any size and shape, so don’t assume that lehengas are the only option. If you’re the experimental sort, then assert your individualistic taste and let everyone see the braveheart in you. Read on about the ten different types of gown trends that has completely changed the wedding fashion game!

Basque/ Ball Gown

Very much common in the Christian weddings, the ball gown is known for its extremely huge flare. Usually, the flare of the gown is supported by a frame that is stitched into it to keep it protruding out. It’s not a good idea to get this gown stitched without starch support or the inner frame since the flares will not come out.
