  • If Your Style Is Classic

    If Your Style Is Classic

    If you feel most at home in basics, such as jeans and a T-shirt or a blouse with trousers and a blazer, then you're a classic bride. You'll shine in a structured wedding gown where the silhouette is the focus and embellishments are minimal. Allover lace or satin will stand the test of time. Sleeves add elegant appeal, though there are plenty of strapless and sweetheart options if you prefer to go bare up top.

  • If Your Style Is Feminine and Romantic

    If Your Style Is Feminine and Romantic

    Floral prints, pastel shades, and midi skirts are the hallmarks of a girlie-girl. Embrace your ladylike charm with a wedding gown that's straight out of a fairy tale. 3D blooms, a blush hue, or ruffles are perfectly in line with your romantic vision.

  • If Your Style Is Glam

    If Your Style Is Glam

    If you gravitate toward curve-hugging dresses, then glam is your middle name. A form-fitting mermaid or fit-and-flare gown — or a bigger-is-better ball gown — will provide that bombshell factor for your big day. You can pull off graphic lace, illusion panels, and crystals aplomb like no one else quite can.

    If Your Style Is Fashion-Forward

    If you think of getting dressed as an art form and love to express your personal style with prints, leather tops, faux furs, and eye-catching heels, then you're a fashionista. The fashion-forward bride isn't afraid to take risks — mix-and-match separates, high-low hemlines, and overskirts are a bridal match made in heaven.

  • If Your Style Is Sporty

    If Your Style Is Sporty

    Good news for the bride whose everyday uniform consists of hoodies, track shorts or leggings, and Adidas kicks: The athleisure trend (clothing that can double as exercise gear or a stylish everyday outfit) that's been dominating streetwear is having a ripple effect in the world of weddings as well. Opt for a halter neckline, notice-me straps, a racerback style, or subtle and tasteful cut-outs.

  • If Your Style Is Preppy

    If Your Style Is Preppy

    Always perfectly polished, preppies are partial to oxford shirts, polos, cardigans, ballet flats, and monograms. They mix timeless staples with fresh pieces for a look that's all their own. Wedding dresses with bateau and off-the-shoulder necklines work especially well for this type of style. Textured skirts with volume or big bows are also fun touches.

  • If Your Style Is Minimalist

    If Your Style Is Minimalist

    Minimalists favor neutral articles of clothing (especially black) in simple shapes. However, this look is far from boring because it's all about quality fabrics and subtle unexpected details. You'll feel right at home in a no-frills wedding gown with sleek lines. Details such as a plunging back, hint of sparkle, or pockets add visual interest.

  • If Your Style Is Retro-Inspired

    If Your Style Is Retro-Inspired

    Retro-loving brides know how to take looks from the past  — knee-length dresses with cinched waists, thick bangs, and scarlet lipstick — and add a twist to make it their own. Whether your vibe is glam '30s starlet, sweet and demure '50s, or '90s sleek and chic, there's plenty of wedding gown options to fit the decade that you want to emulate. Look for characteristics such as blousons (a fitted waistband over which material blouses), flouncy skirts, capelets, tea-length hemlines, or fringe.
