Wedding Dresses With Volume



Show-stealing trends don't come much bigger than this (pun intended): volume.

For leading ladies looking for a head-turning entrance that's bang on trend, this is it. Having long shied away from the idea that bigger is better, no doubt as a result of the lingering vision of that Diana dress (and any whipped up '80s confection, for that matter), brides' fearful history of bulbous ballgowns is becoming rewritten with the runways' latest to-die-for dresses.

Replacing fussy frills and swaddling fabrics with smoothly billowing frocks that sway with effortless grace, modern volume is a light and achingly romantic affair. Layers of tulle, organza and chiffon combine to jaw dropping effect through dramatic oversized skirts, cascading ruffles and flouncy overskirts.

Sleeves are another way to add volume, with everything from short puff sleeves sitting atop the shoulders to long blouson styles - especially balloon sleeves. But by being transparent, semi-sheer and delicately layered with a mix of materials, the look is one of multiple interest and elegance, while still remaining de rigueur.

If you're not sure of how 'big' to go, there's plenty of more toned down versions to add the idea of volume to your outfit. It could be a back bustle or an accentuated flare at the base of a fishtail, elegant drapery caught by the breeze, piece of plumage, extra long veil or starched cape that lifts your bridal ensemble toward contemporary couture.

Here's some of the most fashion-forward dresses with volume to have found homes in Cornwall and Devon's bridal boutiques...
