Ruffles Wedding Dress

A big trend in 2018, ruffles are layered cascades of fabric on the skirt of a wedding dress that create volume, drama, movement and contrast in a variety of different fabrics.

Ruffles have come a long way since the oversized dresses of the ‘80s to be given modern makeovers and used to create a variety of different looks by bridal designers.

Organza and tulle lend themselves particularly well to the creation of ruffles thanks to their light, sheer qualities and the ability to create texture without adding too much bulky volume. This Morilee by Madeline Gardner mermaid bridal gown is a real spectacle thanks to the contrast and volume the ruffled organza skirt creates against the fitted bodice that sparkles with crystal beading on Alencon lace.

Equally as dramatic is Enzoani’s ‘Luanne’ ball gown wedding dress. This enchantingly whimsical wedding gown is the epitome of glamorous drama thanks to its ruffled, tiered tulle skirt that is sure to keep heads turning.

Watters’ dropped-waist ‘Mimosa’ gown offers a lighter take on the ruffle with swirling romantic ripples in its ruffled tulle skirt that is so light it looks like it just floated on on a spring breeze.

So don’t let ruffles ruffle your feathers - they’ve come a long way in the last few years.

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.


Embroidered wedding dresses feature ornate hand or machine-stitched patterns and designs sewn directly onto dress fabric using different coloured threads.
