Cuts and Textures: An Opening for Every Style

The latest collections from the big houses add openings in all kinds of silhouettes.

The straight cut allows more freedom to play with the height and width of the openings, while in mermaid cut wedding dresses, the openings are usually a little less obvious, but no less aesthetic.

Brides who wish to wear this type of model can be guided by the type of mood they are going for their wedding. The bulkier styles, such as classic princess cut wedding dresses, may be more appropriate for traditional weddings and even elegant parties, as the play of the opening with the fullness of the skirt is usually chic and delicate.
