Asymmetric Wedding Dress

Asymmetric wedding dresses feature the key characteristic of a slanted hemline or uniquely diagonal tiering or draping, meaning that the two sides of the gown don’t match.

Asymmetric wedding gowns are also sometimes referred to as high-low hemlines or waterfall skirts, where the skirt is longer in the back than the front. This modern look is bang on trend and the perfect excuse to shop for a pair of show-stopping shoes. Enzoani’s ‘Letty’ wedding dress is the embodiment of the chic high-low dress. Brides can show off their pins in this edgy, stylish stunner thanks to a dramatic high-low skirt for a look that is ultra-modern, youthful, and sweet at the same time - the perfect style for a city wedding.

Asymmetry in a longer gown can help to visually lengthen the silhouette. Diagonal features, such as draping or tiering, can help to straighten or create curves, which can in turn help to balance out proportions. Asymmetrical pleated details on the bodice and skirt of this luxe silk dupion ball gown by Justin Alexander are the undisputed star of the show, creating graceful drama and a beautiful silhouette (oh and we are so there for the skirt’s hidden pockets).

For something a little more ethereal and feminine, Stella York’s layered ball gown wedding dress is graced with layers of frothy tulle to create volume through asymmetrical horsehair hemlines.

Opposites really do attract!
