If you’re on TikTok, you know the new trend is a video showing wedding dress styles through the decades. From simple and modest in the 50s, to Audrey Hepburn-inspired dresses in the 60s, to taffeta, lace, and huge sleeves in the 80s, wedding dress styles have evolved with fashion trends.

If you’re looking for a classic style that doesn’t scream “2020s” and instead is timeless, check out these 5 styles that won’t cause your future kids to cringe when they look at your wedding photos!

  1. Slip Dress

The slip dress is a classic dress for a reason. Simple and elegant, it’s great for all different types of venues, whether it’s a more casual, lakeside location or a more formal affair. Whether you’re getting married in a morning ceremony or having an evening, sunset wedding, the slip dress will transition seamlessly from your ceremony to the dance floor.

  1. Ball Gown

Ball gowns never go out of style. If you’re dreaming of a princess wedding, a ball gown is what you’re looking for. Ballgowns have fitted bodices that go straight down into a full, flared skirt.

The skirt often has layers of crinoline underneath to give it a full and poofy look. These are great dresses for women with pear-shaped bodies, as the waist will nip in, giving you an hourglass figure.

  1. A-Line 

A-line dresses are flattering for all body types. A-lines are fitted in the bust and flare out at the waist into an A-shape. If you are curvy, an A-line dress is a great choice as it will highlight areas that you want to flatter while hiding areas you might not want to put on display.

  1. Trumpet-Style

Trumpet-style dresses are similar to mermaid-style wedding dresses. These dresses are fitted through the chest and waist and then flare out at the mid-thigh (trumpet-style dresses) or at the knee (mermaid-style dresses).

If you want to flaunt your curves, one of these dresses is for you. Just make sure you can walk and sit down in it!

  1. Vintage Dresses

Vintage-style wedding dresses never go out of style. Think a Jackie O silhouette. The sheath dresses she favored looked good in the 1960s and look just as good in the 2020s. If you like the idea of a vintage dress but want to make it more your own, use your mother or grandmother’s dress and have it altered and adjusted to be more your style.
