Bella Bridal Gallery has officially re-opened, and we are more excited than ever to help you find your dream wedding dress! With all of the changes that have happened, we understand that brides may be in a rush to get their wedding dresses, and we are here to help. In addition to helping you find the dress you’ve been dreaming of, our number one priority is the safety of our brides, their guests, and our staff. Here’s what to expect during your bridal appointment:

1. Appointments are required

While we have always tried our best to accommodate walk-ins, appointments are now required to enter the shop. We are sanitizing dressing rooms, seating areas, and high traffic spots in between appointments, so we need to know who is coming into the shop and when. You can book your appointment easily online here: https://www.bellabridal.com/request-appointment or call us at 248-539-9800.

2. Masks are mandatory

Masks are mandatory for everyone entering the shop. Think of all of the stories you will tell your grandchildren when you explain to them that you were a “covid bride”. This may not be how you envisioned your wedding dress shopping, but we promise we will make your shopping experience unforgettably special.

3. Browsing welcome

You are still welcome to browse the gowns during your try on appointment, but if you are uncomfortable going through the dresses, your professional consultant will do the work for you. Your consultant will ask you what your style preferences are and pull gowns that meet your needs. They know the inventory like the back of their hand, and with a little bit of input from you, they can be sure to find your dream dress. Feel free to show us your Pinterest board for inspiration!

4. Have fun!

Despite all of the changes going on, your wedding dress shopping experience can still be fun and easy! You’ve been waiting a lifetime to marry the love of your life, and we will do everything in our power to make your experience memorable. If you’re ready to find your dream dress, book your appointment now and we will help you say YES!

Shopping for wedding dresses, whether you are just starting your search online or you’ve started trying on gowns, can be an overwhelming experience. With an abundance of lace, beading, sequins, and what seams like never-ending layers of fabric, it’s easy to think that “more is more” when it comes to wedding dresses. But, what if that’s just not “you”? If you fancy yourself more of a “less is more” kind of girl, there are still great wedding dress options for you, no matter what kind of style you are going for. These minimalist wedding dresses are simple, chic, and timeless. They must be made with the best quality materials and with the highest craftsmanship in order to truly shine. They are a great way to let your true beauty show without all of the bells and whistles.

Edgy

These wedding dresses have daring necklines, angles, and cutouts. They are bold and unexpected, and make a statement in terms of their design.

Traditional

Traditional wedding dresses are timeless and polished. They look very refined and sophisticated, never “plain” or boring. These wedding dresses have classic silhouettes and will remain stylish throughout the years. They are the true definition of never going out of style.

Princess

A full skirt and light layers can make any bride feel like a princess on her wedding day, not just sparkles and shine. This dress is fun and flirty without a stitch of lace or beading.

Glam

For the glamorous bride, minimalist wedding dresses really let the fabric do the talking. Make a statement with bold folds and manipulation of the fabric, or for a more feminine look, try adding a bow.

Modern

The modern bride is all about putting a fresh spin on a classic look. Unexpected details such a a sheer top on a classic ballgown or a plunging neckline and curve hugging seams add a contemporary element to simple silhouettes.

Boho

There is just so much to love about boho wedding dresses. They are often characterized by their effortless feel and unconventional detailing, such as a touch of crochet detail instead of traditional lace.

Chances are, if you’ve started looking for wedding dresses, even if it’s just online, you’ve heard the terms, “A-line, ballgown, mermaid, and sheath” thrown around a fair amount of times. However, what’s really the difference between them all, and what shape will best suit you? Here, we will go over the differences between the major wedding dress shapes to help you determine which style will work best for you!

A-Line

As its name suggests, A-line wedding dresses widen from the waist to the hem, creating an ‘A’ shape. This silhouette is classic and timeless, and is the most comfortable style to wear. It is flattering on every figure, and is the softer, more romantic version of it’s sister, the ballgown.

Randy Fenoli

Ballgown

The main difference between the A-line and the ballgown wedding dress is the amount of volume in the skirt. Ballgowns have a defined waistline and a big, billowy skirt. They are perfect for any bride looking to feel like a princess on her wedding day. If you are planning a dramatic, fairy tale wedding, a ballgown is a perfect dress choice.

Randy Fenoli

Drop Waist

The drop waist wedding dress has a fitted corset top like the ballgown, but they do not flare out at the natural waist. Instead, they flare out just below the hips creating an hourglass shape for the bride. This less common silhouette is a good choice for a bride hoping to create curves and show off her figure while still getting a voluminous skirt.

Mermaid

Mermaid wedding dresses are a great choice for brides who want to show off their hourglass shape, and who want to do it with drama. They are fitted all the way through the hips, and then flare out with volume at the bottom of the dress, typically at the knee. These dresses make a big statement, just like the ballgown does, but while also showing off your curves.

Trumpet

Just like A-line and ballgown wedding dresses are like two sides of the same coin, so are trumpet and mermaid gowns. The major difference between the two styles is where the dress flares out. The trumpet wedding dress flares above the knee, making it a softer silhouette. It is also a much more comfortable option than the mermaid, as the higher flare will allow more room to move, sit, and dance in your dress.

Fit and Flare

Fit and flare is the softest silhouette of the fitted wedding dresses. They have a very slight flare and are more subtle and subdued. These dresses are are very sophisticated and elegant, and will not overwhelm a more petite bride.

Sheath

Sheath wedding dresses follow the natural shape of your body, without any added flare. They create an elongated look and tend to be very comfortable, thin dresses without too much structure, which is perfect for brides whose top priority is comfort. These dresses look effortless and relaxed, great for boho or beachy brides.
