Bridal Dresses

What is the most popular style of wedding dress?

What is the most flattering wedding dress style?



How much on average is a wedding dress? What are the different types of wedding dress styles?

PRO TIPS: I have three lines with gowns at three different price points, because I believe every bride should be able to wear a gown that makes her feel beautiful no matter what her budget is.

My couture gowns start around $5000 and the sky is the limit for a custom couture dress. My high-end diffusion line, Love by Pnina Tornai, starts at $3400, and my new P by Pnina Tornai collection is my most accessibly-priced collection yet, with gowns starting at just $2200. As for wedding dress styles, there are so many to choose from– ball gowns, A-lines, mermaids, fit-and-flares, sheaths, tea-length dresses… and even mini dresses, jumpsuits, and pants suits!

Awesome Lace Bridal Gowns


Are lace wedding dresses more expensive? Is a lace wedding dress modern?

PRO TIPS: Lace wedding dresses can be more expensive depending on how much and what type of lace is used, and if the lace is embellished with crystals or beadwork. I personally design lace gowns at a variety of different price points in all my collections.

While lace has always been a traditional bridal fabric, a lace dress can also be modern depending on the silhouette and other design elements. For example, a fitted lace gown with a plunging V-neck, low back, and sheer cut-outs is very modern.

Vintage Bridal Gowns To Impress


What is a vintage wedding dress? Do vintage wedding dresses look good on petite and curvy brides?

PRO TIPS: A vintage-inspired wedding dress has design elements that were common in different eras in the past. That could be beading or fringe-like you might see on gowns from the 1920s, bustles or ruffled sleeves inspired by the Victorian Era, or puff sleeves like the ones you might have seen a lot in the 80s.

Vintage-inspired wedding dresses can be beautiful on any bride and anybody type – the key is finding the fit and silhouette that makes you feel like the most beautiful version of yourself.

Bohemian Wedding Gowns


What is a Bohemian-style wedding dress? How do you make a wedding dress look like boho?

PRO TIPS: I personally love boho-chic bridal dresses – they often feature lace with unique patterns and may also include details like wide sleeves, tassels, pom-poms, or fringes. They are typically an A-line or sheath style and usually less structured than some other wedding dress styles.

Mermaid Bridal Dresses


What shoes go with a mermaid wedding dress?

PRO TIPS: Any style of shoe can go with a designer mermaid wedding dress, but I love a high heel with a platform. Platforms often make your shoes more comfortable! You can go with a color and fabric that matches your dress, or have fun and do a shoe with a pop of color.

Simple Wedding Dresses For You


What is a simple wedding dress? How to style a simple wedding dress?

PRO TIPS: A simple bride dress would be a gown without lace or embellishments, where the silhouette and cut of the dress do the talking. A minimalist gown in any silhouette can be a gorgeous, striking choice, whether it’s a sleek crepe sheath gown or a clean satin ball gown.

A more minimalist wedding dress is a great canvas for accessories, whether you keep them understated, add in crystal pieces for some sparkle, or wear a detailed lace veil. Belts, headpieces, and capes are all options you can choose from depending on your wedding day vision.

Beach Style Wedding Gowns


What does a bride wear for a beach wedding? What is the best material for a beach wedding dress?

PRO TIPS: I truly believe that a bride should wear whatever makes her feel most beautiful, no matter where she is getting married, but often brides getting married on the beach choose sheath or A-line gowns because they are easy to move in. Light fabrics like chiffon, lace, and silk are great for keeping cool in warmer temperatures.

Long Sleeve Wedding Gowns


Are long sleeve wedding dresses in style? Should I add sleeves to my wedding dress?

PRO TIPS: Long sleeve wedding dresses are always in fashion! But there are so many sleeve styles, from puff sleeves to cap sleeves to lace sleeves to off-the-shoulder sleeves. You can also opt for a detachable sleeve or a bolero with sleeves to match your gown if you want two looks in one, and that way you get the best of both worlds!
